Though prices aren’t much higher than at other local Indian restaurants, this modish dining room emits an energy that is more destination-venue than casual drop-in. The welcome is professional, the
service on the button, the lighting flattering & the room clean-lined. Cooking is up to scratch, too, matched with modern, appetising presentation. Swagat’s customers also make an effort; they
book in advance & they tend to look further than chicken tikka & lager. Start with the selection of poppadoms & chutneys before embarking on the meal proper. Favourite dishes include
the fun & interesting aloo tikki chaat (potato cake with chickpeas & a sweet yoghurt & tamarind chutney), followed by a satisfyingly spiced, richly sauced prawn molee, cooked with curry
leaves & coconut, or murgh methiwala with fenugreek & cumin.
