As soft-spoken as his food is boldly spiced, Pardeep Singh has quietly reopened this well-loved restaurant in a new, decidedly modest, yet more modern space next to Rêve in Lafayette. Singh’s rogan josh, cubes of lamb in a rich curry, captures the style of Swad’s cuisine—assertive but not cloying—and of its spirit: Generous portions are served in unassuming copper vessels by experienced staff. The tandoori mixed grill—featuring everything from delicate shrimp to sizzling seekh kebab—was expertly cooked. The sprightly seasoned vegetables in the classic aloo gobi were soft and distinctive, while the saag paneer served as a wholesome yet creamy “sauce” for Swad’s chewy basmati. Make sure to order the plump prawn biryani and goat cheese naan. The lunch buffet is a notch above, but dinner is a true standout. 960 Moraga Rd., (925) 962-9575, theswadindia.com. Lunch and dinner daily.
