This is a very welcoming place with excellent Northern and Southern Indian food, We usually get the Thali, Dosas, Samosas, and/or Chana Masala but have tried a lot of the menu and have enjoyed everything. If they have okra, get it. It is wonderful!

Veggies took a trip around the world ;) and I never had to buy a plane ticket ;) Tried this true gem of a restaurant today for lunch with my love. Everything we had exploded with flavor. Never tried an Indian cuisine quite like this one before. The service was like going to ur moms house for lunch....they were so... More

They describe their food as pure vegetarian Indian cuisine. Yes, it is vegetarian, but it is not fresh or tasty. I paid a little over $12 for vegetable korma and plain naan for lunch today. I have no doubt the veggies came out of a can or a frozen pouch. The sauce was not creamy and tasted as if it... More

A local sent us this way. A hole in the wall place for sure. Very friendly and accommodating staff. But we heard microwave ovens working in the kitchen. The Rava Masala Dosa was very good and spicy. The Veg. Korma was a bit of a small portion and I have had better. With Authentic in the description was that to... More

I've become very fond of 'hideaways', otherwise known as holes-in-the-walls. The atmosphere is homemade and kitschy, and you feel like you can be yourself. When I find a hole-in-the-wall with delicious food that puts a smile on my face, I've hit a home run! That's what happened when I visited Swad. I've read wonderful reviews on this site, on Yelp...

The owner is quite a character but don't let his tone throw you, he is a great guy. I am a meat loving fool but this place was great. I visited with my vegan friends who rave about the place. It lived up to the hype.

SWAD is one of the very best restaurants in Greenville. You can't beat their food, the authenticity, or their prices. It doesn't look like much, but SWAD truly is a gem. Try the samosas!

Lunch thati is very diverse and very good. Our visitors wanted to eat there often after visiting other restaurants serving Indian food. Price is competitive and service is quick. Onsite market for specific dishes.

A tiny market with table service vegetarian food is the only place to get solid Indian in the area. The family makes excellent food, and the humble service keeps prices cheap and poseurs away. Lots of negative posts are from ignorant fools who mistake simplicity and humility for dirt or grime are idiots. DHEC Sanitation score April 17 2015 was... More

My wife and I have been meaning to try this small Indian restaurant on Laurens Road for some time. We took the opportunity Friday night and were very pleasantly surprised. It's in a small strip of shops and when you go into it, if you looked left, you would think you went wrong somehow. The left side of the small... More
