We were in the neighborhood and craving Indian food when we spotted this place. It's a very clean and nice looking restaurant as was the buffet food. The selection of food was nice and seemed to be fresh. Service was good and we feel like we got a good deal and were able to try a lot of different foods.

The chicken makhani is my favorite. It's all you can eat at lunch time, and everything is delicious. I go at least once a month. The servers are helpful, friendly, attentive. This is one of the best places to eat in NW Portland.

My wife and I have spent time in India - see her 'Ameripeans On The Go' article in Come Fly With Us Magazine - and appreciate the wide range and straightforward choices in a good buffet restaurant. Swagat is a favorite and very reliable.

Four of us went to Swagat for an early dinner recently. The restaurant was immaculately clean and the serving staff was friendly and helpful, explaining the various dishes and sauces. We started with Assorted Vegetable Pakoras and a Masala Dosa. Both dishes arrived quickly and were hot and tasty. Then we shared four a la carte entrees. The entrees were... More

Love to visit this place for a long lunch! Great flavors, very consistent, lots of variety - always a little bit different and unique. I've been here at least 8 times, with my wife and alone, and I'm never disappointed. Don't get there too late or some of the best items might be gone!

The atmosphere is perfectly done. Service was outstanding. I ordered a dinner rather than alla cart and had to take half home,the portions were more than enough and delicious!

Eating family style, we tried four dishes. The spices in the curries were complex and delicious without being overbearing. The meats in the meat dishes were tender. Service was prompt and helpful. I like to try Indian restaurants and this was high on my list. I would definitely like to go here again when in Portland.

My husband and I just went to Swagat to have dinner and had a good time there. The staff was very smiling and welcoming. On the menu, there were the usual Indian dishes (appetizers, vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes). You can choose "a la carte" (it is served with rice) or thali dinner (it is served with rice, naan, lentils,... More

Craving for Indian food, me and my friends ended up at this restaurant. It was a warm welcome and food was served on time. It became too loud at one point (thanks to a large group sitting adjacent) ruining the dining experience. Food was average, and it was strange to see the cobwebs hanging right above your head as you... More

You know how Indian food can sometimes taste too heavy and overladen with oils and spices? Not this place! The meals were light, fresh and absolutely delicious. The Chana Masala was heavenly. The naan was baked to perfection. The basmati rice was like a bowl of floating, celestial clouds. And the service was fantastic! Our server has a twin sister... More
