Veeraswamy history


Veeraswamy is UK’s oldest Indian Restaurant. Established in 1926, it remains a legendary culinary landmark; a favourite amongst foodies & critics alike, playing host to royalty, celebrities & regular patrons.

As an International restaurant institution, it attracts diners from around the world and the prestigious National Geographic Magazine, recognising its longevity and global appeal, has listed it as one of the Ten Best Destination and Special Restaurants in the world.

Established in 1926 by the grandson of an English General and an Indian princess, it soon became a fashionable rendezvous hotspot amongst the rich and famous, who were drawn not only to its remarkable cuisine style but also to its Raj inspired opulent interiors.

Today it still exudes the same extraordinary glamour and rich essence of its legendary past; however, it has undergone considerable makeovers to maintain such an ambiance, with a fabulously sophisticated menu to match. The cuisine at Veeraswamy is inspired by the wondrously copious kitchens within the palaces and wealthy homes of India, making it a sensational feast for real gourmets.
