6 reviews of Swagat in English
Not usually a fan of restaurants due to previous bad experiences, I decided to try Swagat. Considering my wife was not a fan of Indian food, I was willing to take a risk as I heard many good views on this restaurant. And I must say it didn't fail to impress. It was a completely different experience to your normal Indian food. They had a touch of class along with delicious food. I can confidently say I will be returning, along with my wife who has taken an interest in Indian food.
All the food we’ve had at Swagat has been great. The restaurant is very smart and the staff very attentive. They take great care with their flavours and offer really delicious dishes. The only thing I would say is that if you like really hot and spicy food Swagat may disappoint as I can eat even their spiciest dish (which I never can in most Indian restaurants). As some of the other reviews have said Swagat is a little pricey, lovely for a treat though (and to be fair not nearly as pricey as some of the other restaurants in Richmond!)!
This is a modern-style Indian restaurant with a focus on good ingredients. This is reinforced by clean, modern decor, crisp linens and waiters in sharp black shirts. Even the poppadoms are unusual - very fresh, and not circular. The sauces also don't taste like jam from a bottle.
My main course was very nice, as was the aloo saag side, but it was the garlic naan that really stood out as an example of how well the food was prepared.
The menu is commendably short compared to most curry shops and doesn't enumerate vast repetitive sets.
Portions are reasonable but not vast and the price is about right for the quality.
Excellent Indian food using proper cuts of meat and innovative dishes. The Lamb Shank Murgh is fantastic as they develop dishes for mouth watering flavours and away from the usual take away menu dishes.
The dishes are generally less fatty and heavily sauced and whilst it is more expensive than a normal Indian this is one to go to to savour the flavours rather than after 10 pints of lager.
food was very good. not like the average indian. But prices were also steep not like the average Indian.
A vegetarian side dish for 5 Pounds…
Dessert menu was extremely disapppointing. They only had the standard cheap bad desserts like the frozen orange etc. The only Indian desserts on the menu were not available - only prebooked. Slighlty off putting.
Service was ok.
Swagat is a cut above the average Indian Restaurant, and doesn’t cost that much more.
There’s a feeling the food has been freshly cooked ,not just reheated, service is good.
My starter of mixed kebab was very good, and like the other starters a very generous portion.
My 'special’ lamb main course was very good if a little spicier than I expected, but I should have checked, again portions were generous… I’m not sure you need Naan as well.
Deserts looked good.
Reasonable wine list, ut £5 for a pint of Cobra was steep, so plenty of tap ater was drunk!
I’ll go again.
