National Geographic, the highly respected travel magazine, has
named it one of the 10 Best Destination & Special
Restaurants in the World.
No other UK restaurant features in the top 10.
Veeraswamy is the oldest surviving Indian restaurant
in the U.K, and possibly the world. It is one of London's oldest surviving
restaurants. It is a global restaurant institution.
Veeraswamy was established at the same site by the great grandson of an
English General, and an Indian princess. The restaurant has been the rendezvous
of rich, famous, and fashionable lovers of Indian food. Customers included
Edward - Prince of Wales, King Gustav of Sweden, Pandit Nehru, Indira
Gandhi, Charlie Chaplin, King Hussein of Jordan, and Marlon Brando.
The luxurious, chic and exotic decor reflects Veeraswamy’s
heritage. It evokes Maharajas' palaces of the 1920s.
The lighting is dramatic. Vividly coloured Maharajas turbans
are on display.
Veeraswamy is also the perfect lunch venue with a light airy room located on the
first floor overlooking stylish Regent Street.
The menu of classical dishes from throughout India is served alongside
more contemporary creations.
Veeraswamy’s unusual distinguishing features are:
- Fine Indian food from the many regions of India prepared only by chefs only from those regions. (See Flavours of Our Food)
- Food rarely found in restaurants even in India. These dishes are from the sources of true Indian food – the gourmet homes & the palaces.
- Dishes prepared authentically and freshly as in Indian homes with great attention to food presentation; and
- Wines which complement individual dishes.
