Excellent food and service. Lovely surroundings. Only downside which a whisky sour, it was off menu and not a good drink. The cocktails which were in the menu were very good.

Awarded a Michelin star in the 2017 Michelin guide, 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.

    Although quite expensive Veeraswamy's is a lovely place to eat. The food was delicious, we were treated very well by the staff, the decor is stunning & there was a good view of the Christmas lights in Regent Street from the window. Shall definitely go again.

    We had a great culinair experience at Veeraswami. The absolute top of India restaurants. Especially the starter with the streetfood tasted like magic. Never had such a combination of different flavoures that tasted so good.
    Also the lamb that had been cooking for 6 Horus was delicious.

    Don't know where to start - I have been to many "stars" restaurants. But even V "only" have one Michelin star, I will rate it as one of the bests I have visited. The food was simply AMAZING - perfectly seasoned. The taste flavours danced on our tongues. I had the taster menu and my wife took the traditional menu, we wanted to taste a much as possible - what an oral orgasme. They even allowed us to change one dish so we didn't have double - NEVER have I experienced that at any other Michelin star restaurant. The prices are very very fair, I heard a few people saying it was expensive - NO..!! Not for the amount and QUALITY of food. The staff is so great, special Sonia, who we had honour of being served by. I can only hope they stay the way they are and not getting star stuck. We will definitely be back. Everything was perfect. Thank you for a lovely dinner - till next time.
