The Veeraswamy features in these AIL lists...

Hot and spicy: London's best curry houses
The UK's oldest Indian restaurant specialises in classic dishes from all over India, so expect biryanis, rogan josh and vindaloos among many others. Meats are slow cooked for maximum flavour, and Veeraswamy also boasts a super-chic dining room.

Ouch! Restaurants serving London's hottest curries
This is the UK’s oldest Indian restaurant and one of London’s most refined, but that hasn’t stopped them from producing sweat-inducing curries like the roast duck vindaloo. That being said, the slow-roasted duck in sweet, hot and sour vindaloo masala is as complex in flavour as it is fiery.

This is one of ours top Indian resturants. Food is excellent, service is professional and setting is great. Not the cheapest so don't go if you're looking for good and reasonable. But if you're going for great and excellent then this is for you.

Food is average. The ambience is nothing special - Certainly not one of London's best!

Overpriced. Quality not as good as it makes out.
