We ate here as a family and we all got the buffet. The food was very good, a little on the hot side. A good stop if you like Indian food.

This restaurant is consistently excellent. They have a varied menu and we have never found an item on the menu that was less than excellent. Quick, friendly service. Reasonable pricing. Great to have in the neighborhood!

I think Swagat's buffet is the most sumptuous buffet I have eaten in the United States! I enjoyed driving 200 miles from Central Wisconsin over to Madison, just for the buffet lunch (did that 4 times in 3 months)!! Took my family when they visited me during Summer. The spread, taste and service.. all excelled. Ambience is great too!

Both my kids are vegetarians and whenever they are in town, we head to Swagat for their buffet. Sometimes when you go to a buffet everything tastes the same. Not here, every dish is unique and flavorful. The variety is great for vegetarians and meat lovers. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is handicap friendly. Swagat is just... More

I'm here to chime in and sing the praises of the lunch buffet. Swagat is a very attractive and large space in a corner mall. There are three separate dining rooms and one which would well serve a larger group of 20 or so at one very long table. Think family or business gatherings. The main dining area is very... More

I enjoyed Swagat's everyday lunch Buffett. Swagat's Indian food is the best I've every tasted! Though I not an expert in this genera, the flavors and spices are perfectly balanced well selected. The service is swift and fancy including clean, white, tablecloths. I will be back to this delightful place many times!

The buffet was one of the best in terms of options. I find the Indian buffets are usually the same anywhere you eat in any place in US. This was different. For me, the pani puri was a big hit in the appetizers along with grilled shrimp. Everything else was americanized in terms of taste. I had two pani puri... More

Outstanding selection of varied dishes offered at the mid-day buffet. Every dish I sampled was delicious. Vegetarian as well as meat dishes. A salad bar and a great selection of curries and chutneys. Just really all around excellent.

I've eaten from both the regular dinner menu at night and the lunchtime buffet. The food is delicious, well prepared, and kept at proper temperatures. I recommend eating at Swagat.

In down on business, in the mood for Indian and Swagat popped up as a top rating on Yelp so we tried it out. This is essentially every Indian restaurant you've ever been too. The buffet is off to the side, the menu is standard, and the food was consistent (we had 8 people with 8 different orders and every... More
