In keeping with Veeraswamy’s unusual opening in 1926, we continue to offer classical cuisine from several regions of India, with a particular understanding of the food that is prepared in palaces and gourmet homes, along with a selection of the best of ‘street food’
WE PAY HOMAGE TO OUR PREDECESSORS
Having been founded by the great grandson of an English General and an Indian Princess in the year Queen Elizabeth was born, 1926, it is important to respect this history. To this end we have maintained a classic menu based on traditional recipes with an intrinsic understanding of fine-tuning tuned to the tastes of the 21st century. Our food aims to comfort as well as inspire and satisfy the demanding palate of our diners.
LUXURIANT INTERIORS TO MATCH A GRATIFYING MENU
It is not only the food that is elegant and princely, it is also the lavish interiors, where we have enjoyed preserving and evolving an environment that evokes the opulent extravagance displayed in the Maharajas Palaces in the 1920’s. The National Geographic magazine has described it as ‘ One of the 10 Best Destination and Specialty Restaurants in the World’: a reputation that we treasure.By marrying the style of the interiors with the menu, along with the lauded legacy and the gracious service, we believe that we offer a slice of wondrously haute India in the heart of London’s premier West End.
