This is a wonderful Indian Restaurant. The owner/manager is from Delhi and really cares about your experience. The interior of the restaurant has lovely decor. There is a small enclosed deck outside but not much of a view.

Celebrated a family members birthday so we had about 20 of us. The service was fantastic. The wait staff were prompt, always helpful, attentive to everyone (ages 6-70+) and fun to talk to. They had plenty of staff (maybe 5) attending to our tables. From...More

Finally made it to Swad for dinner with my husband. Sumit (manager) was our server. Although we are familiar with Indian food we asked him to recommend a chicken and a prawn dish....both were excellent....medium hot in spice as we had asked. Aloo Gobi and...More

The place was just about half full, nice atmosphere, and good first impressions. Lots of choices on the extensive menu, and a good range vegetarian options for my other half. The Ismaili style Kuku Paka was among the best I've found in Vancouver, and the...More

We dined in once and had a good meal. However we just had take out and it was horrible. Tasteless jasmine rice, boring vegetables that were either the cheapest in season or came out of a freezer, or both, so-so butter chicken, and dry naan...More

We ordered takeout from here because we already knew it’s the best. Such delicious food. They had it ready for pickup in 45 minutes. You have to give it a try if you like Indian food!

I have heard very good things about this restaurant, and my experience may well have been atypical. I called for some food to pick up. I was asked to come in 25 minutes. I came at 30 minutes and was told the food wasn't ready...More

Comfortable ambiance...good Indian food...great service. Most of the dishes were lacking the real Indian flavors. The medium spice dishes were too mild to be interesting. We would only order strong spice dishes the next time...
