We make it a point always to book at Veeraswamy's whenever we visit London. The oldest - and the best - Indian restaurant in the UK? Exceptional service, fabulous ambience and exquisite dishes. OK, not exactly the cheapest deals around, but you get what you pay for.
Thoroughly recommended.

More about Veeraswamy

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.

Dining here has been one of life's pleasures since my first visit 22 years ago. I'm lucky to pass through London 2 or 3 times a year and I always treat myself to a high-qualiity meal there.

Dined early evening. Fri and weekend evenings are quite busy and reservation is a must. The menu is renewed periodically and never a disappointment. The staff knows the menu very well and their recommendations are always excellent. Can't go wrong in this restaurant.

early dinner on first day of Olympics. Food, service and atmosphere never fails to impress. Food is glorious - starters, lobster curry, sea bass. The menu is diverse from indian regions. Desserts a delight - trio of jellies.

We visited on Sunday, 29/7/12, at 6, and were the first to arrive for dinner.

Everything was delicious!

One thing we weren't so thrilled about was getting charged for 2 bottles of water; they should have asked before assuming we wanted to pay ridiculous prices for something you can get from the garden hose for free.

The waitress was very nice in advising us the type of food we wanted with the wine selection. The ambiance was lovely,if you want to experience something new and especially fine dining, this is one of the places in London to do so. The interior is beautiful and clean. Definitively recommend. The stuff really couldn't do more, worth the money.
