A totally uninspiring menu serving run-of-the mill Indian food. We ordered the lamb vindaloo which the menu indicated was spicy. Nope. Not in the least. Bland and boring. The chat appetizer was tasty but the chicken tikka masala and saag paneer were as tasty as...More

....at Swagat. Excellent, authentic, interesting dishes (assuming you avoid the couple patently 'catering down' to American tastes); relaxed atmosphere (we sat for 3 hours) courteous, efficient, unobtrusive, friendly service; reasonable pricing. A great resource for the 'hood!

We visit monthly. Terrific Indian cuisine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Lunch buffets give many choices of quality dishes. Dinner is very reasonably priced and we split an entire tandoori chicken for under 19. Enjoy it here!

Try to make a reservation. Locals know this place is good so it can get busy. Foos is wonderful and service is very fast. Portions are adequate but not oversize.

Ok - not much more than that. Chicken tikka masala more like chicken in tomato sauce! Mixed starter nice as was naan. Nothing special.

This tiny little restaurant warrants the wait. Reservations are recommended but they will accommodate with a little wait if you just pop by. The food, the service, even the beautiful bowls make this a wonderful place to eat.

Delightful change from the monotonous procession of the same small selection of Indian dishes (adulterated to American taste) served in almost all 'Indian' restaurants in NYC. The menu here is much more varied and interesting; the preparation (inc the spices used) is far more authentic;...More
