    Visited in december on recommendation of my senior , saw live crabs there. Ordered chinese and the food was above my expectation. Had soup, chilli paneer and fried rice, each item was so well prepared that it cannot be described in words.

    It’s been over a decade when I ate here last so visiting this restaurant was in my list of things to do in Delhi. Ordered crab and prawns koliwala. They really surprised me.. Excellent dishes and very generous quantities . These smallest crab portion is good for 2-3 people, so it needed quiet a bit of effort on my side to finish it after prawns The service has always been very good in Swagath restaurants, and I was t disappointed this time either

    Very nice 3 stories area to sit. Good staff and delicious food. Some of them are from Mangalore and they prepare food according to the original taste.

  • 3Tejinder P. 1 year ago
    Famous for non veg coastal/south Indian food but today Chicken 65 was bad. Ambience and food, generally, is good.

    This place has some good and some mediocre dishes. While the fish curry and mutton sukka amazed me the chicken chettinad left me disappointed..appams were ok and so was the chicken stew. I feel they are trying to do too many things. Expensive it is and I am not sure if it's worth it.

    Extremely disappointed, don't go by the photos posted.....I was a regular here for the past 10 years now but the past 3 visits has been forgettable. The quality of food has gone down and prices have risen. Fish tikka was tasteless and raw, and when we asked to change it the same plate was reheated and made a lot spicy. Chicken in Biryani was not properly cooked and was a tough eat. Surami fish fry was good but costly. Maybe the last time for me....

    In the whole the only good dish was chicken ghee rost. It’s a wast of money, don’t visit this if you want have a quality time.

    I have visited this restaurant innumerable times and I liked the place but then I wouldn't say they have great food taste. The reason it might be after gaining some kind of visibility they didn't pay much attention to the food quality.
