Nice little restaurant. The food was fine but it was the worse service I have ever received, hands down. It took forever to get someone to our table. Once they took our order it was another 20 minutes or so to get our very simple order. Then we had to go get our own cutlery and napkin before we could eat our appetizer. Next we had to wait for our entree. I had to go and find someone to give us some water, it was Indian food after all. Then we waited on our check. It was just impossible and frankly somewhat embarrassing. This was the second time we have eaten there and we had the same problem last time but it was so much worse this time. I will never go back. I would not be surprised if there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant.

We love Indian food and often eat out. Seen this place for the past 8 years but never ate there because it was always empty. Craved Indian yesterday and decided to give it a try. Although I can understand the 'watered' down American version but don't believe 'watery' curries are acceptable. Ordered spicy lamb curry, it was sweet and watery. The other curry dishes were all watery with cubes of meat. I cook a lot of Indian curries myself. Won't be back.

There are many seafood restaurants around the cape, but knowing that the golden swan put their Indian twist to it was awesome! We ordered the lobster tikka masala (being big fans of lobster). The way it was presented was with a tikka masala sauce which was great! Gotta go back and try other seafood dishes soon!

We have gotten take-out from The Golden Swan several times. The order is always correctly prepared and ready when promised. We also find the prices to be reasonable. The food is fine -- fills our bellies and is enjoyable -- but it is not excellent. It does the trick on an evening when we need a good, reliable dinner.

We were craving Indian food during a week's vacation in the Boston and Cape Cod area, so stopped here.

Ordered chappatis, a naan, aloo-gobi and channa-masala, followed by masala tea. Requested spice level was medium (because even though we're Indian, we've lost the ability to deal with really spicy food).

Food was authentic as could be - straight from Punjab (Jullundur to be precise). This is one of the few Indian restaurants that serve chappatis. Tea was well-made, and very importantly, hot. Service was quick and efficient.

Loved the restaurant, in other words.

(On the down side, prices are a bit on the high side, and the decor is dated. Regardless, I recommend this highly. Incidentally, reading some of the previous reviews, my suggestion would be to order straight up Punjabi food - like channa, aloo-gobhi, kadhai paneer, the daal makhni etc. Stay away from stuff like the vindaloos, which is not from the Punjab region)
