I go here nearly every time I'm in J'Burg. I love hot curry and their lamb vindaloo has been completely consistent for years. Always the same strength always good quality lamb with no fat or gristle. Great nan bread. Can't really comment on other dishes as that's pretty much all I ever order. The service isn't brilliant or particularly warm... More

Our favorite Indian restaurant, Bombay Blues in Rosebank is closed for renovations so we decided to give Swad a try. It's on the lower floor of Killarney mall next to the movie theatre. The atmosphere is one step up from its fast food neighbor next to it . The restaurant was clean. The food was very tasty although the other... More

We celebrated our daughters first birthday in Swad restaurant. Great experience , everything was arranged perfectly . Whole event we were at peace since there was no need for crisis management from our side. Staff were very courteous and all our guests loved the food. Bonus is next door cinema which runs Indian movie, a definitive plus to visit Swad.

Hi Suchitra Thank you for the excellent service on Saturday 28/05/2016, by you and your staff. The Dosa station was a hit! The curries were delicious. I highly recommend Swad for catering. Thank you for being there and managing from beginning to end. Made a huge difference.

This restaurant is located on the ground floor of a shopping centre. Was here for a business meeting and pleasantly surprised that we were seated in a cordoned off section which offers more privacy. Had the tandoori platter shared across the table( they have a vegetarian equivalent as well) and the fish and mutton curries for mains. The flavours of... More

Located at the restaurant piazza of Melrose Arch the restaurant has a good ambiance to it, a mix of Indian and cosmopolitan vibe. Popular for lunches. The food was well prepared and tasty Indian food of the South African style (somewhat moderately spicy to the pallet and can be very hot in chilli-heat terms), which is slightly different to the...

Visited Swad at Killarney for the first time after discovering that their branch at Melrose Arch closed down. The service and ambience at the Melrose Arch venue, i felt, was much more too my liking. I had three different waiters/waitresses attend to my table as well as the Manager taking the food orders... Perhaps one person waiting in a table... More

July 18 lunch: I have been to their outlet in Melrose and was kind of disappointed with the quality of food and service. We had gone to the zoo and this mall was the closest. With a kid really hungry, we didn't have much choice. We reached at around 2.30-3. So, it was empty. The interiors are on the dark... More
