Veda, one of the most popular haunts for Indian food in the Connaught Place region, still draws in foreigners and local diners alike. Bathed in warm lighting, the restaurant’s interiors, designed by A-list couturier Rohit Bal, cement its place as a culinary destination. Chefs pay homage at the altar of Indian cuisine here, with an eye on execution and plating. The food is a meld of traditional Indian flavours as well as regional street delicacies, highlighted with trendy presentation and attentive service. The 'Fish Tikka' is a wise selection from the appetiser section and comes anointed with robust home-ground spices. The 'Fish Morsels' are tender and flake beautifully at the touch of a fork. Ravenous souls can feast on the 'Chicken Dum Biryani', which sends out tendrils of smoke once it makes its way to your table in a terracotta handi. Flavourful blocks of chicken, redolent of freshly-pounded Indian spices, stud amber-shaded rice in this exceptionally-nuanced dish.
