I enjoyed my experience at Swagat. I wasn't moaning with delight while I ate but I have nothing to complain about either. The service was good and the food was hot and tasty. If you are looking for some casual dining that is tasty and affordable then this is a good place for you.

This was an highly disappointing visit! The hostess didnt even ask if we were helped! She stood in front of us and kept counting her tips and didnt greet us! I think she was a Racist!!! She didnt even apologize properly! India's were not welcome in the Indian restaurant! It was annoying! I will never go to this place and will never recommend this place to anyone ever! I wonder how long they will be able to be in business with this kind of customer service!

I have been a big fan of Swagat for several years. I am an avid consumer of the Chicken Mahkni and such. However, it had been a while since my last visit, and today I was sadly disappointed. \n\nThe vegatable pakoras have turned into heavily battered fried French fries. The naan bread quickly hardens stiff like it's been microwaved. The cilantro chutney was doused in salt to the point it was almost unedable; the Chicken Mahkni was a spice disappointment. The vegetable curry had good flavor. But boasting a mix of 9 vegetables lead to disapointment when I realized it was the typical frozen mix you can find a local grocery store. \n\nWhere have you gone, Swagat? Will I ever get that sweet and flavorful Chicken Mahkni again? I am concerned.

My guy and I have been eating here regularly--at least 3 times a month for the last 3.5years. We are vegetarians and I am also sugar free. The food is almost always good and sometimes exceptionally good. Not gourmet, but reasonably priced, good tasting food. They serve dhosas which are wheat free huge crepes and they are delicious. We get the spinach palak paneer, and the dhosa regualrly. We can count on them to be good sometimes we'll try other things like their okra curry dish and it's inconsistent. Reasonable\n price, good food and decent service

I am of the opinion that this is the best Indian food that you can get in Portland. I have frequented this establishment for over 7 years and have never been disappointed. \n\nTheir food is always good, but occasionally changing. Indian food is very complicated and you can taste the complexity in their dishes. I find this exciting as nearly every time that I visit, it is a little different. \n\nTheir prices have gone up over the years, but are not as of yet, unreasonable.

Maybe its just Indian food in general that gives people the he-be-je-bees. It certainly did me. Some friends took me when I accidentally mentioned needing to broaden my horizons.\n\nFlavors were Interesting, Intriguing and ...Good! As a new come'r to the Indian world, and not having the taste for the Hot version of Spicy I went with the Chicken Makhani. Flippin Good. The soups and dips ( which I got confused) were... interesting but again...a learning experience. \n\nThe server was very lovely and good at his job. All and all a very lovely experience.

So since I moved to Portland I have only had Indian food once and it was kinda nasty, at this house turned restaurant that was later caugh on camera as having rats and roaches. GROSS!\r\n\r\nSo I had heard a lot of good things about Swagat so we decided to try it one day for lunch, we were definitely happy w/the selection and the food, as well as the flavors. \r\n\r\nNow that I read the other reviews, I do remember the guy dumping water on our table every time he came by so they could improve on their service but for an easy lunch it was great. I would go back.
