The best Indian food AND service in town! While the buffet is wonderful, the menu is where I typically find myself ordering from. My favorites include Butter Chicken, Chicken Tiki Masala, Lamb Korma, and Peshawar naan.

So...let me first say that I can't consider myself an expert on Indian food, however I have eaten at quite a few places and have a new love of Indian food. Which is why I was so excited to try this place...ranked number 1 overall in EL...it had to be amazing! Went with some co-workers for lunch and had the... More

Fine quality for money. One of those just off campus restaurants that you will see a lot of Indian students eating home cooking and other students and campus staff enjoying the food. Easy access.

The lunch buffet here is amazing. The food is always delicious and hot and hard to beat. Lots of vegetarian options, too!

I came for the weekday lunch buffet and was hoping for an outstanding meal. Unfortunately it was just OK. The buffet had a pretty large range of foods and it was kept stocked. But the food wasn't particularly warm and could have been a lot spicier for my taste. The fried okra and chicken korma were the best of the... More

We came here for lunch buffet after hearing so many positive reviews with higher expectations. But disappointed with selection of items for buffet and cooking style of dishes (a few north Indian cuisines were cooked in south Indian style thereby losing the authenticity of those cuisines). Apart from that, i loved everything like service, taste of food and ambiance. Puri... More

Good selection of food on the buffet. I wasn't truly impressed since most items were just average. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and we got seated right away. The inside was a little run down and could use a through cleaning. My wife said that the bathroom was on the dirty side. The men's bathroom was OK for me.

When you read the reviews, you need to consider where people come from. I'm an East Coast transplant. Native Michiganders have not experienced NYC and Boston Indian cuisine. If you have, this place is definitely fine, not great. The veggie dishes were far superior to the meat dishes (at the lunch buffet). No appetizer-like foods (poppodams, samosas) are on the... More

I moved the Lansing about a year and a half ago and this place has been my weekly go to. Swagath has never failed to satisfy my Indian craving. The food is always so delicious! Would definitely recommend to my friends and family!
