Michelin Guide 2017

"It may have opened in 1926 but this celebrated Indian restaurant just keeps getting better and better!"

Time Out

“Billed as London’s oldest surviving Indian restaurant, Veeraswamy remains a destination for tourists and corporate types on elastic expense accounts. A lift (accessed by a narrow entrance) whisks diners to an expensive, airy first floor overlooking Regent Street. Décor is a mix of colourful hanging lamps, ornate chandeliers and memorabilia from a byg
one era. Even on our weekday supper, most tables were full and the Restaurant buzzed with conversations…..”

Good Food Guide

“Britain’s oldest Indian (born in 1929) flaunts its heritage against a lavish backdrop of Mughal carpets, Maharaja turbans and antique Bengali paintings – although fibre-optic lighting, black granite surfaces and silver jail screens signal  that it’s also in tune with the times. The cooking is on-trend too”

Zagat 2013

“Snare a window table overlooking Regent Street at this iconic Mayfair landmark in Victory House (since 1926) that tenders a spectacular array of inventive Indian dishes presented with verve by skilled staffers; the glittering, luxurious setting suits business lunches and couples’ dinners alike, and even though the pricing is high-end, its highly recommended for a first-class experience.”

Hardens 2013

“With its colourful and beautiful contemporary décor, London’s oldest Indian, near Piccadilly Circus, is a far cry from the tourist-trap you might fear; its top-end cuisine is often amazing too, though prices do seem to have gone through the roof of late.”

Featured as one of the Ten Best Destination & Special Restaurants by National Geographic

“Undoubtedly the best Indian cuisine in the world. The menu features classical dishes from throughout India as well as contemporary creations prepared by a team of regional chef, each producing their own specialties. The restaurant’s décor is equally spectacular”
