By far the best Indian restaurant in the area. The food is delicious, always packaged well for takeaway. I love going in to the restaurant to experience the genuine welcome & amazing hospitality/customer service. They are so friendly and helpful. The range of food accommodates for all & you can even choose the spice level & the very hot never disappoints.

I visited the restaurant for the first time Saturday night from a recommendation, it was delicious. From the moment you enter the service was exceptional and the food was the best Indian I have ever had, generous servings and home cooked with love. I cant recommend it enough, we are going back with friends next week and I think this will be our new Saturday night hang out.

Ooohhhh this FOOOOOD !! Online ordering efficient and easy, then walking in the door to pick up, this might be My Happy Place ! To be greeted by lovely people, picking up their wonderful food…. it’s an indulgence to be ‘cooked for’ after many years of looking after others, and the flavours, ingredients, finishing off, packaging, everything is firstclass , delicious in the extreme ! I salivated just unpacking it. I have more for tomorrow. . . . lucky me. Thankyou Sabi, Nitika and the other people whose names I do not yet know. 10/10 every time


I have chosen Swaad for our evening meal with family and friends several times now and each time I am impressed. The service is impeccable! The food is beautiful. I cannot fault the food. Please try the pistachio ice cream desert..amazing!!!


My second visit. Truly the best Indian food I have eaten. Signifiocant day, needed to have Tandoori Chicken in honour of my latre husband who loved and also cooked it, after a sad week, with some vegie dishes, it gave such pleasure to the senses I can’t tell you ! Service impeccable, friendly staff, Nitika, and the pre-order to pick up system allows to order and pay cash on pick up, not auto pay with credit card. Its a terrific place. Look forward to eating in house in warmer weather. Thank you Saby and averyone at Swaad.


First experience this evening takeaway to enjoy with friends at home. The most beautiful, delicious, wonderful dinner, prepared expertly and we loved everything ! We will return. Thank you very much for your work preparing our dinner , lovely people !

Without a doubt, one of the best Indian restaurants I have been to as a takeaway customer. The food is always delicious and the Customer Service is top-quality. They are the friendliest nicest people and take care of their customers I highly recommend them to anyone.

Wanted a change and found this place on google. Ordered takeaway and the Food was great.Spicy, Fresh and Tasty..
Will surely be back !


Everything we ordered was wonderful! The lamb cutlets and tandoori chicken were standouts!


First time I’ve ordered from the restaurant & I was really impressed I ordered on their website online it was very user-friendly the The food was delicious we ordered a lamb vindaloo butter chicken and a fish curry, The food was hot tasty and reasonably priced giving us 2 free naan or roti with each curry. Definitely value for money and I’ll definitely be ordering from there again thank you for the great service and the delicious food

We normally have our fave Indian, but it was closed last night (being a Monday) so we thought we’d give Swaad a try. What an absolute delish experience. No contact pick up which was fab, fast service for our pick up, and the food was next level – absolutely delicious and generous servings. I couldn’t fault a thing! We will definitely be back. 5 stars from me!!

Best Indian we have ever had. We get Indian takeaway quite often and are so happy we have found this restaurant. Thank you for providing a high quality meal.

My favorite Indian restaurant. I just picked up a delicious butter chicken! Love their customer service and they are all such friendly people! I can highly recommend Swaad


Thank you so much for the wonderful service you have provided to us on Sunday night. The food and presentation were amazing! You really went above and beyond in making sure our large group of 12 women with very different dietary requirements was happy and satisfied. We had a great night!! Thank you ❤️


You really went above and beyond to deliver our food tonight, on an extremely busy Saturday night, within a reasonable timeframe. The food was delicious as always! Thank you Swaad team, we really appreciate it!

We have just moved to Bentleigh from Sydney and feel we have now found our favourite Indian Restaurant. A little Gem.
Presentation, Service, cleanliness, and appearance were first class.
Food was excellent and we cant wait to try more from the the range of dishes they have available. Keep it up !!
Thank you very much.

Best lamb korma I’ve ever had


Fantastic place, people and most of all food! Always look after you, and if you like it a certain way these guys always hit the mark, being British I am fairly fussy about my Indian food, for me this one is top of the pops. UK folk, ask for Extra Hot ?


The meals are always delicious and the staff are always lovely.


This Indian Restaurant is by far the best food I have had in Melbourne. Coming from the UK it has been very hard to find a place that cooks authentic and tasty curries, Swaad is this place and it has never dissapointed us. The Goan fish curry is to die for, as it is the Malai Kofta. I totally recommend this place to anyone who loves Indian food.


Simply amazing food. Service just lovely for takeaway. Thank you.


The nicest people i have ever met, the passion for cooking, service and beautiful food is a credit to the entire Swaad Team. The butter chicken is sensational, the food is mouthwatering and i will go nowhere else for Indian Cuisine.


We had dinner on Monday night with our daughter and food was delicious. I had the Samosas and the Lamb Korma. the korma was tasty and very mild. I enjoyed the cardamon ice cream too! The service was very friendly and we will be back 🙂

Wow, The food was amazing! Top notch Vindaloo and absolutely scumptious Rogan Josh. Even the onion garnish rice was full of flavour. All the meals were really well balanced spice wise. Despite getting lost initially, delivery was on time…. and the driver was super friendly too! 5 starts!!!


Absolutely delicious food, and the staff were some of the nicest people I’ve ever encountered. Cannot recommend enough.


Nice food and thoughtful extra’s. Delivery was withing indicated time. Keep this up and you may have one more regular!


Just visited this new Indian Restaurant (for take-away) in Centre Road, and we were very pleasantly surprised! The food was absolutely outstanding!! Right up there with the best in the area and not only that, There were a number of very nice extra included in the order for no additional cost. They provide some salads as well as nan, and 1 nice thing to top off was a couple of after dinner mints!

But apart from the extras the food was great in it’s own right. We had a hot Lamb Vindaloo, and a beautiful chicken dish which they call Curry Magic.The Dal Makhani was just beautiful as well!

The owners seem lovely too, so it ticks all the boxes! We will definitely be back and telling others!
