The most striking aspects of Veda are the crystal-framed mirrors and red chandeliers that make it look far more dramatic than just another restaurant. Ignore the less-than-promising location in an unfashionable part of Connaught Place. It has proved, over the years, to be a popular choice of traditional Indian restaurant in a somewhat novel setting. Do try the bestsellers: crispy okra, Veda spinach chaat, Veda dal and tandoori jumbo prawns. The prawns are coated with a light smear of pickling spices and cooked so that they retain their crunch.
I recently went to India on a group holiday, touring northern India. Our first evening meal was at Veda. We were unanimous that this was the best meal of the fortnight. Delicious food, good venue. Thoroughly recommend.
We had lunch here on a Tuesday. There were lots of free tables. No booking required. The room is decorated really nicely. Lots of mirrors. We had the vegetarian platter (700 rupee) spinach special & dessert. Positives(1) Great customer service. We enquired whether the platter would include the spinach house specialty. It didn't. Nonetheless they served it to us along with the platter at no extra cost. (2) serving was very generous. The platter was more than enough. (3) glamorous room(4) easy to find on the outer circle(5) serious air con. Bring a wrap Negatives. (1) wine expensive at 2200 rupee + mandatory service + government charges
Looking for Connaught dining experience our hotel concierge sent us here. Great choice.Good service, excellent food but we do get the feeling that there are “Indian” and “tourist” prices (780 rupees, plus tax, plus tip, plus some more seems steep for a glass of beer)Stunning starter – Veda Spinach Chaat. Mains of Chicken Mulai Tikka, Rogan Josh and Biryani were shared and thrilled our taste buds. Bread turned out to be a revelation during this trip to India.
real and very tasty Indian food, perfect location close to Connaught Place. A little pricy, but you get more than you pay for. Don´t hesitate to ask the friendly stafft if alergic to some food produchts like gluten or dairy, or you have some extra wishes. Ambience top. Also vegetarian friendly.
This over the top decor restaurant serves some very interesting food. Unfortunately the service was too quick and the main course overtook the entree. Service was okay. The decor, mirrors and then more mirrors, red and black paintwork and all tables arranged down the sides. I think this is good value but a definite tourist Mecca. Be aware that men wearing shorts are not permitted.

The restaurant district of Connaught Place is usually bursting with aroma of good food and strums of guitar enticing the punters to step in and enjoy their evening. The open arched hallways of the area boasts of a series of snazzy restaurants and funky looking bars, each with a charm of its own. Some eateries like to be subtle and delicate in appearance but there are some places like, ‘Veda’ who have accumulated the fame for its striking appearance alone. The popularity of the restaurant relies not only on its food but its ambience too, which Veda has in abundance. If you want a little drama in your ambience, then do make it a point to book a table at Veda, which will come through on every level. The restaurant rests snugly in the H Block of the Outer Circle a little out of the way from the conventional lanes.
Veda is all about in-your-face glamour. Its décor is theatrical at best with dark mysterious appearance that hooks you into submission. The exposed brick walls are tall in height and are brightly painted, seeming even more so vibrant in the evening when all the lights come on. Heavy ornate framed mirrors in various sizes are mounted on the walls, giving the place an appearance of a castle or a royal dining room. An impressive collection of crystal chandeliers hangs from the ceiling throwing a dull light about the room. A heavy fall of curtains cover the windows so one feels to have stepped into an exotic surreal world of grandeur. Furniture is stylish and opulent. Veda is a fine dining space designed to mesmerize you.
The menu of Veda is as rich as its ambience. North-Indian and Mughlai cuisines are their forte, which they excel in. Dining at Veda may be a little expensive but it’s an experience worth indulging in. Begin your food journey of Veda with appetizers like, raan, tulsi paneer tikka, kakori kabab, malai broccoli, chicken kali mirch, nitrogen spinach chaat, jumbo prawns, Veda curry leaf, fish amritsari and hara kabab. The main course can be accompanied by a basket of breads or some aromatic biryani. Go with, rogan josh, handi lazeez, prawn masala, aloo udaygiri, nihari, moilee, paneer kundan kaliyan and chicken harapyaz masala. Wash down the meal with a nice mocktail or a drink of your choice.
