Swagat has been deservedly recommended by Michelin for several years now. The dishes are largely from the north - West Bengal, Bangladesh, Punjab etc. - but include for example Malabar fish curry from Kerala in the south west.

An interesting take on Indian food, very well prepared and tasty food, service fine but not cheap eats. This is a very good Indian restaurant and you have to pay for quality.

Not your usual generic Indian menu, they go for taste over heat and happily obliged when we asked for something off menu. Cobra beer sold draught or in large bottles.

This is actually the best indian food in Richmond (and maybe London). A great variety of curries an some other dishes. I love the naan bread and the indian beer. The service is very courteous and you get your food very quickly. Any time again ;)

After trying almost all indian restaurants in Richmond, i came to conclusion that Swagat is the best restaurant for indian cuisine. Novveg dishes were awesome but veg food was not up to the mark.

I am visiting my sister in London and walked by this place on our way downtown. Looked like reviews posted on the window were good, so I asked her if we could eat there. She mentioned she and her husband had a bad experience a couple weeks ago, but could give it another try. Upon calling to place the order,... More

We booked an early meal at the restaurant on Richmond Hill. Every course was tasty and the service was prompt but unobtrusive. We will be back soon.

This is without doubt, the best Indian restuarant for miles around - the food is just to die for. Its always busy and saturday 26th was no exception - thankfully the owner squeezed us in (meal for 2) as we were early before his first sitting. sharing a few words with him, he let slip that between 6-830pm most nights...
