We had dinner twice with other couples at Swad within two weeks. In both cases we found our choices excellent and the service very good. This is not fine dining but very good Indian cuisine in a casual setting. The servers in both cases did...More

I have eaten at Swad multiple times, both at the former location on Mt. Diablo Blvd, and the new location on Moraga Road. The restaurant is not the same since moving to Moraga Road. Food quality and preparation has gone downhill, yet the prices have...More

Our family LOVES Swad. We've tried so many other Indian restaurants, from Berkeley to Walnut Creek ... but Swad wins, hands-down. Never had anything there we don't like. I agree the new location (960 Moraga Road, just a few blocks from the original location) is...More

Swad was so much better at the other location on Mt. Diablo boulevard. I know that they have only been at this location for approximately 6 months, but they seem to have a problem. Service was slow, and the kitchen was overwhelmed. The food quality...More

Tried the lunch buffet it was ok. They don't have a lot of kind of food over there. Some foods are good and some just ok. Service was good and fast.

We had a wonderful dinner here....all the traditional offerings. Lots of vegetarian ones too. The food was prepared well, was hot, and had a few nice simple wine offerings. DELICIOUS.

We've always thought Swad had the best Indian food around, and their new location hasn't changed that opinion. We always order the tandoori chicken & baked eggplant. The chicken is reliably moist and tasty. The eggplant is my favorite, & I highly recommend it. We...More

Food was good, not great, but the restaurant suffers from lack of any ventilation. On a rather cool summer night it was sweltering and overwhelmed by the kitchen odors. Perhaps it might be better on a cold winter night.

We had a buffet lunch here today and I must say that I did not come away feeling too good about my country's cuisine. The restaurant was fairly crowded, some people were even waiting for a table. The owner/manager (not sure) was quite friendly and...More
