Swagath is Delhi’s gateway to coastal cuisine.
Located in the bustling Defence Colony market, Swagath is a no frills restaurant that delivers its fare pretty well. Specializing in coastal seafood from the western coast between Goa and Kerala, it also offers many South Indian, North Indian and Chinese dishes. Swagath is owned by the management of Sagar Ratna which is a very popular South Indian chain of restaurants.
The thing to eat at Swagath is the seafood. It is known for its butter garlic prawns which can be eaten with their delicious malabar parathas. They also make some wonderful chicken and fish curries that go well with Appams.
Swagath does a decent, though somewhat overly oily job of offering Delhi-ites a window into the world of wonderful South Indian cuisine, which has so much variety and depth.
