We stopped in here because we were hoping to have Indian food that was not too oily and yet had all the classic dishes. Swagat did not disappoint. They had all of our favorites: the chickpeas with cauliflower, the papadum, the black lentels, the flavorful rice. And, they also have a great wine list and fantastic service. Our waiter was...

The restaurant is in a nice little area. The food is good, with enough choice but the dips that come with the poppadoms look as though they were served in a thimble, they were that small. All the dishes were cooked well but there were not enough serving staff on for a busy weekend.

Used an app to recommend some good food close by and I wasn't disappointed. Such amazing flavours and a great assortment available. Portions were perfect. I can see why they have nearly a dozen Michelin awards. Service was fast and efficient. Will be back.

Bit uncomfortable chairs and if you sit near the kitchen and small bar area it can be noisy particularly with the phone ringing for takeaways and moped riders coming in and out passed your table. The food was so so and perhaps a bit over priced. Slightly glorified M&S Indian range. The waiter seemed a bit huffed and puffed dealing... More

Hi, If you had so many issues with the restaurant why did you sit and have a complete meal, you should have cancelled your order and left the restaurant. If your wife is a good cook then I suggest you to eat her food rather than going to a restaurant to dine. This will not only save you some money... More

This place is on Richmond Hill, it is not too big. The inside is very basic, no table cloths, fancy cutlery plates etc, no decoration either. Very casual. The staff are very friendly, especially Dhiraj. They take some professional measures, such as cleaning the table after a course. The menu is big and has lots of choice. I was in... More

Favorite Indian place in Richmond! Went here a few years ago and nothing has changed. The staff was very friendly, especially our waiter Dhiraj. Really recommend the mango lassi as a desert! So delicious :)

Our first visit. We found the service attentative and quick by friendly and welcoming staff. They had a good selection of daily specials and a broad menu. All of our food was prepared to a high standard and was very tasty and enjoyable. It was a Friday evening so we had booked in advance, and were glad we had as... More

Slightly more expensive than a regular Indian, but you understand why when you taste the food. We ordered a variety of dishes in our family group, and everyone was very happy with the flavour and quality. The fish curry I had was totally wonderful. The only slight negative was that the service seemed to be a bit rushed and pushy.... More
