“I took an instant liking to swad Indian Kitchen, the newest addition to west Vancouver’s dining scene.” – Chris Dagenais

“I began my new menu explorations at Swad Indian Kitchen, which topped my Year in Review selections in 2015 and seems to have gained a loyal following since, if midweek volume in the restaurant was any indication. I was a huge fan of Swad’s pan-Indian approach that showcased both classic and contemporary creations drawn from regional influences spanning the entire sub-continent, as well as the restaurant’s warm and refined interior design.

Their new menu, as lengthy and ambitious as the original, retains a few of the dishes that I have grown to love here, including the Bengali Curry featuring seasoned fish in mustard and coconut cream and Swad Palak Kofta, spinach and gram flour dumplings with fresh spinach and cream, but otherwise it is a complete overhaul. New to the menu is the stunning Swad E Lamb, a thick and exceptionally rich curry with a generous portion of boneless, moist, fall-apart-tender chunks of lamb in coconut, curry leaf and toasted spice gravy. The dish was pure magic, elegant but hearty, its sauce the perfect consistency to be mopped up by naan.

Also sampled from the new menu was a fantastic preparation of Gobhi Butter Masala. Florets of the vegetable were battered and cooked until slightly crispy on the outside, then topped with a creamy, spicy tomato and onion sauce. I ordered the Kofta again out of habit and was pleased to find it is still an extraordinary vegetarian dish, an explosion of rousing textures and tastes. Mains at Swad are around $18, on average.The restaurant is located on Marine Drive near 17th Street in West Vancouver.”
