Could have been in New York or London. The food was good but it lacked ambiance. Very western style of decor. Happy with the food but would have preferred a more "authentic" setting

Went to restaurant at around 2:30pm for lunch Ordered Dal Makhni and Malabari paratha .. Just saw two insects inside in first piece of paratha .. Waited for Manager to come for about 15min... Staff was very lousy and not at humble... Worse experience ever with such a big brand ...

Soup was served Luke warm which was later replaced on our complaint. The food was great and... More

I came here with two friends and I was very impressed. The South Indian food menu is extensive and reasonably priced... and they were kind enough to take an order of dishes not on the menu and asked for by my friend. The atmosphere is great, lovely furnishings and in a nice area of Delhi. I highly recommend!

I love to go to Swagath Restaurant in Defence Colony, Delhi for South Indian Non vegetarian cuisine. They are the best in that. I have been there often. The food is unbelievably good. Their expertise is in Mangalorean and other South indian Seafood... There service, and the consistency of the quality is worth mentioning. Overall - Very Good
