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.
