Ten Second Takeaway

The 10-year-old restaurant, Veda boasts of interiors emanating royalty, and an equally impressive menu comprising the best of Indian cuisine.

Swing from the chandelier

veda3 Visit Veda for a Big Fat Indian MealDesigned by Rohit Bal, Veda is a picture of royalty, much like a Rajasthani haveli. We spotted beautiful marble plaques hanging from the ceilings, rose-pink chandeliers sparkling away and more mirrors than you can count. Even though the space isn’t too big {can seat around 40 people}, it still feels massive.

The best thing about Veda is that the main focus is still food and not drama, though their presentation is spot on too.

We started with the Matar ki Galouti with a dollop of Philadelphia cream cheese and a drizzle of tamarind chutney. Asparagus Shorba came in a kullar and was delish. You can choose from some great drinks- our favourites include the Apple Cinnamon and Pineapple Ginger Margarita.

The Onion Pakora was entertaining to say the least. A whole onion cut into a flower and batter-fried till golden and crisp. The Stuffed Mushroom, Veg Seekh Kebab, Paneer on Fire {a north Indian version of dry chilli paneer} and the creamy Malai Broccoli were the highlights for us.

The mains

veda2 Visit Veda for a Big Fat Indian MealWe fell a little in love with the Dal Veda- super thick and creamy with the right kick of spices, it was dal makhni taken to the next level. Pair it with a Garlic Naan and the Masala Okra for best results. We also quite enjoyed the Paneer Kundan Kaliya which is served in a tomato gravy.

We called it a day with the Litchi Tehri- chopped litchi in some creamy rabri. It could’ve used some nuts though.

The well-done food and Veda’s hospitality puts the restaurant high on our lists.
