We normally have our fave Indian, but it was closed last night (being a Monday) so we thought we'd give Swaad a try. What an absolute delish experience. No contact pick up which was fab, fast service for our pick up, and the food was...next level - absolutely delicious and generous servings. I couldn't fault a thing! We will definitely be back. 5 stars from me!!More

My partner and I dined at Swaad last Saturday evening. Excellent food excellent service, nice relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended. We ordered chicken tikka, grilled lamb cutlets and mushrooms tikka for entree. For main course we had lamb Rogan Josh and chicken tikka masala, rice and...garlic naan. It was fantastic that rice and naan was included in the main course price. We requested medium spice for our main courses. Mild would have been a bit plain so I recommend medium spice. Friendly service. We will definitely be going back. Easy to get parking out the front of the restaurant.More

Lovely restaurant in Bentleigh. I am definitely giving 5 stars to warm and welcome greeting. From moment we enter and moment we left we have been looked after, staff wasn't pushing, they were smiling,polite and helpful. Absolutely 5 stars! Ambient was nice, music not to...loud. Just perfect. We started with VEGGIE TASTING PLATE Yummy mixtures of of Veggie Appetisers (samosa,paneer, croquettes) have been served in a platter with salad and chutney. CHICKEN BUTTER was nice. Other meal we ordered was MUGHAL'S ROGAN JOSH BEEF this dish cooked in intense with onion and tomato curry. CHICKEN JALFREZI Boneless chicken, cooked with variety of vegetables and herbs was a lovely meal that we had to order another one. This was definitely the winner. Each main course comes with bread and rice. Restaurant is licensed but also BYO with corkage charge $5.00 per head. We had very pleasent dinner time and shall be back.More

Went for dinner, again, with friends last week. As usual the food was excellent, the service special and the pricing very reasonable, for what is probably one of the best suburban Indian restaurants in Melbourne.

We've been going to Swaad for some time now, and can't praise them enough. Saby and the team go out of their way to provide each guest with a truly memorable experience. The service is fantastic, and the food is sublime. Don't bother trying any...other Indian food in the area.More

My delivery came quite late on a busy Saturday night but Saby from Swaad went above and beyond to rectify it and generously sent me my exact same order on a different night completely free of charge. The butter chicken was very tasty. Thank you...Swaad :)More

6 friends went to Swaad for the first time last week. We had been missing good Indian food since Banyan Tree in Moorabbin closed down We found the food was great and probably the best we have had for some time. The quantities were generous...and the service was very prompt. This is a small restaurant and would probably book out quickly so maybe booking is a good idea. We highly recommend this place and will be back soonMore

Swaad's cost a bit more than other Indian Restaurants in the area and the effort put into the food is worth it. The Samosas and butter chicken were very nice but unfortunately my favourite dish of Beef Vindaloo was missing the middle notes. It was...spicy/hot, (which I like) but unfortunately that signature vindaloo flavour was absent.More

Since the closure of Indii in Bay St Brighton, my wife and I have been looking for a new regular haunt. We're happy to have found Swaad in Centre Rd Bentleigh where there's good food, good service, and good value. Thanks Swaad.
