I have been here a few times and must admit, the food is simply excellent. My recommendation: Let them decide for you what to eat and they serve you a wonderful mix of delicious indian food. Especially I like the relaxed, informal athmosphere.

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...More

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.

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 :)

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...More
