Tips

  • Opened in 1927, Veeraswamy's is said to be the oldest surving Indian restaurant in the UK. Famous diners have included Ghandi, Charlie Chaplin, Marlon Brando and the Prince of Wales.
  • A lovely view at night amazing food
  • The oldest indian surviving restaurant in the UK.
  • The first Indian restaurant in Britain opened its doors in 1926, and its turbaned Sikh doorman was one of the sights of London. Many of its early guests were colonial types who missed their curry.
  • Indian food ...
  • Indian dishes wonderful...
  • Rich history and terrific food. A little spendy, but recommend their lemon rice, pineapple curry, king scallop starter - and the pannacotta is to die for.
  • Anything here is good. Chicken tikka and shrimp to start. Biryani, lamb chops, dal tadka. Alphonso mango if in season.
  • Overrated pretentious Indian restaurant. Serves "Indian food" for ppl that don't know how Indian food actually tastes. Raj kachori/ mango kulfi were ok. Lamb biryani/chicken butter were not
  • Green prawn appetizer is spicy but delicious. I also recommend the lobster curry with lemon rice. This place has improved ALOT since my last visit!
  • One of three best places in London for Indian. Try chili martini!
  • Raj kachori is a must as an appetizer along with the green prawns .. Place and staff are helpful a must visit restaurant while in London
  • Green prawns, Chicken Makhani, and Chicken Biryani are delicious and not too spicy I did not like the Raj Kachori very much myself but to each their own.
  • Just magnificent
  • The duck vindaloo is amazing!
  • One of my best Indian Restaurants in London. The food is amazing. My friends always come for the Raj Kachori a large Puri filled with goodies.
  • Exquisite foods, upscale ambiance... this place loves itself, and so will you. Try the biryani for a truly different, delicate experience.
  • Chicken Makhani + naan was average, and the naan is barely enough for half the portion. Masala Chai better than expected. In general overrated & overpriced though.
  • Zuppa di lenticchie, pollo al curry, agnello in agrodolce, gelato di rosa.
