Excellent four-course tasting menu, beautifully presented and clearly explained by the staff. Really good range of beers and lagers too.

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.

    Tourist trap. At least the classical tasting menu. We were 5 and ordered the classical tasting menu. All four selections were in a similar tasting sauce. The service was medioccre.

    Excellent food. Manager was kind enough to approach us and ask if everything was OK. Prices perhaps a little on the high side, so would probably make this a once off visit.

    Really lovely dinner here. Top notch Indian food, it's pricey which reflects the area more but our dishes were great. Had the lamb shank which was gorgeous and the restaurant was very down to earth given it's status. Would definitely go again.

    Booked as a family treat as had read anout it previously
    Menu was elaborate but eay to negotiate , staff friendly and approachable, not stuffy in terms of atmosphere
    Ordered Kerala Prawn Curry, Chicken Shahbaad badaami and Hyderabadi Nimboo do piyaaza + Murgh tikka
    The Hyderabadi Nimboo do piyaza and Murgh tikka were really good although for the Indian palate spices could have been a bit more,
    Almond tart and saffron custard + Rose kulfi were very good desserts
    In total family of 4 £177, reasonable considering the location and what we were subscribing to etc

    Minuses :
    Perhaps waiting staff could have asked or reccomended
    The coca cola was quite flat : tasted like shopping market brand coke, Also the wine by the glass wasnt of a good taste
    12.5% discretionary service charge added , tips extra ? ! Gets pricey

    Suggestions
    Ask the waiting staff to reccomend
    Tasting menu looked good

    I would definately come back again , it was a great experience overall !!
