I have been going to Swagath for years and our recent trip was a a good as ever. We have two friends visiting India for the first time and it is such a good restaurant to initiate people into good quality, sensibly priced, clean and delicious eating that is NOT in a 5 star hotel. As expected our friends loved... More

The decor is nice. Tables etc very close together so you feel 'businessy' and hurried rather than nice dining. Wide ranging Indian menu but food came barely warm, relatively bland and served with minimal enthusiasm. It gains more stars for the tasteful decor than anything else.

Good food. Drinks are always 1+1. Very nice ambience especially on the top most floor. Must try the Butter Chicken.

Nice restaurant, nice food but over priced. The waiter was trying his hardest to sell us the fresh prawn that was on the menu and guess what it was one of the most expensive items. He was over insistent which put me off the restaurant a bit. Excellent service though.

Probably of many branches of swagath this is the best one The ambience is not so great but everything is secondary when you taste the food. Five stars ✨ for food and 3 for ambience

Had Appam, malabar parantha and tawa fried pomfret - all these items were excellent in taste. Chettinad black pepper mutton was not that good particularly the smell of a spice. On an earlier occasion had Chettinad pompret which was also good. Service was good. However, few items were not available from the Desserts Menu.

We had a great meal here ordering many South Indian dishes that were all delicious. We had a thin, soft and white dosa that I've never tried before, appam that was lovely and an incredible chicken stew and fish curry.
