Veeraswamy was founded in 1926, which was the same year the Queen was born. To celebrate Her Majesty’s Birthday this year, Veeraswamy will be holding a Royal Week of celebrations 17th -25th April . In aid of this special week, special menus have been put together to highlight some of the best dishes served at the restaurant in the past 85 years. Offerings such as Lamb Kichda, Jumbo Green Prawn, Kerala Syrian Chicken Stew and Rogan Josh, together with specially selected wines and a choice of cocktails will be available throughout the week. Lunch menus are priced at £19.26 for 3-courses and a special feast for dinner which includes a ‘Kir Royal Special’ with its own Golden Turban costs £36.00.

Generations of visitors remember the imposing gentleman with a turban who stood outside the entrance in Swallow Street and now, by popular request, the man in the turban or ‘Darwan’ as he’s known in Hindi, is back and ready to greet guests as they enter this famous Indian restaurant.
