All of the servings were very large but unfortunately the quality of the food was lacking - too much sauce and not a great deal of flavour

I've only been once since Swad moved locations. For $9.95 at lunch you have a full buffet of Indian delectables. My advice for these buffets is go early. Everything looks swank and swell early. If you take a helping of each item offered you will...More

We had dinner twice with other couples at Swad within two weeks. In both cases we found our choices excellent and the service very good. This is not fine dining but very good Indian cuisine in a casual setting. The servers in both cases did...More

I have eaten at Swad multiple times, both at the former location on Mt. Diablo Blvd, and the new location on Moraga Road. The restaurant is not the same since moving to Moraga Road. Food quality and preparation has gone downhill, yet the prices have...More

We had a wonderful dinner here....all the traditional offerings. Lots of vegetarian ones too. The food was prepared well, was hot, and had a few nice simple wine offerings. DELICIOUS.

My family and I previously enjoyed Swad at the old location. When we heard they were moving we thought it was to expand. The new location is an absolute bust. Parking is more difficult, the seats are closer together and there is no ventilation. It...More

We've always thought Swad had the best Indian food around, and their new location hasn't changed that opinion. We always order the tandoori chicken & baked eggplant. The chicken is reliably moist and tasty. The eggplant is my favorite, & I highly recommend it. We...More
