Veeraswamy Indian restaurant weaves an exotic spell of timeless glamour with a luxurious venue fit for the Maharaja and regional classic or contemporary Indian dishes. Opened in 1926, Veeraswamy London is the UK’s oldest surviving Indian restaurant and has served dignitaries and celebrities alike.

Established by the great-grandson of an English general and an Indian princess, many of the visiting Maharaja’s have donated their coloured turbans which now adorn the walls at Veeraswamy Regent Street. Listed in the National Geographic’s ‘10 of the Best of Everything’, the dramatic lighting, splendid chandeliers and silver painted ceiling are reminiscent of the Maharaja’s palaces from the 1920’s.

The Veeraswamy menu features classical dishes alongside contemporary offerings, with regional specialist chefs using their culinary skills to create a periodically changing menu. Many vegetarian dishes are available as well as an enticing selection of Indian desserts including Indian ice cream.

In the heart of London's West End with the 1st floor overlooking Regent Street, Veeraswamy London Indian restaurant is a 5-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    The food was delicious

  • ((*** by from Chorley

    Read lots of reviews good and bad. Our general opinion of the food was disappointing. The starters were very good. However the main course arrived very late and ordered lamb biriyani and chicken makhani. Both dishes lacking in spices, aroma and very bland.
    We did ask the waiter for his recommendation but he was unsure.
    We have visited Michelin star restaurants and middle of the road eateries and have ate much better.
    The staff member did ask us how we felt and told him the truth. His explanation was that the dishes are cooked to the standard and palate of the Europeans and Westerners!!
    So really there's nothing authentic about their dishes at all.
    The only thing about this experience was the Michelin price- astronomical! We didn't have wine either.
    We would definitely not visit this place again. Sorry!

    We tried the Taster Menu. It was good, the staff were excellent at describing the dishes. However in my opinion it is over priced

    Good is good. We were party of 6 and ate well. Luckily it was a business dinner. However, quantity of each dish was very small (especially with high prices - for eg: £12 for 2 piece starter). Great place to go, if someone else paying for food. There are better places in Mayfair for same price.

    We had a splendid meal. The Tasting Menue gave us a culinary adventure very pleasurable to enjoy and discuss. The waiters were very attentive and explained flavours and origins for the various dishes. Beautifully presented and truely delicious, thank you for a really lovely evening.
