If one wants good "Indian" cuisine in Joburg there are a few options. The rule of thumb is that a restaurant that concentrates on dishes from a few regions rather than purveying an Indian menu is the one to look out for. Swad may indeed be where the search ends.
Swad as the name suggests, is an Indian restaurant offering a culinary voyage of India in an authentic Indian royal setting. At Swad you can savour a contemporary dining experience that's fresh and rich with the traditional flavours of India. Our cuisine extends from the temperate flavours of Kashmir in the North to piquant offerings of Kerala in the South, the delicately spiced seafood from the East to the rich flavours of the Punjab.
