When we arrived, the lady, who we guessed might be the owner didnt seem very keen to give us a table as there was 10 of us. But she agreed, and we were seated. She was a really miserable lady, so not a good start....More

I treated my Wife to a dinner out, and chose SWAD. The food we had was so exceptionally tasty and flavoursome it was to the point of the old cliché ‘the best Indian I had ever eaten. Portion size was just right, excellent value for...More
