Excellent for our first dinner in Delhi Oct 17, 2015
On arriving in Delhi we learned that dinner on the first night of our tour was included in the cost so that evening we met up with our guide, Rajesh, and driver, Mehar, to go to Connaught Place for a meal at Veda, one of a small (I think) chain of restaurants in India. Well, it may be a chain, but we were certainly impressed by the food here, as well as by the somewhat exotic décor - dark, rich reds, lots of gilt mirrors and ornate light fittings, plus a hammered metal ceiling reflecting the candles on the tables.

The website describes the cuisine as “a contemporary interpretation of classic Indian cooking”. We had a set meal and everything was delicious. The first course was two vegetable appetisers - fried spinach leaves topped with tiny noodles and cheese (a Veda speciality), and cauliflowers fritters. Then two meat appetisers - small pieces of mutton kebab and chicken tikka. The main event was a selection of dishes served with rice and chappattis. There was a chicken curry cooked with spring onion, a lamb curry, paneer (Indian cottage cheese) in a spicy tomato sauce, a black lentil dahl and another Veda special, crispy fried strips of okra (a sort of fusion of that classic Indian ingredient with the Chinese way of serving seaweed). Finally there was kulfi, the rich Indian ice cream. As I said, everything was delicious, but if I had to pick favourites it would be the cauliflower fritters, the fried okra and the paneer - all excellent.

We didn't pay directly for this or see a menu but checking prices on the website they seem reasonable to me for the quality of the food. The two Kingfisher beers we drank cost a bit under 500 IR, or £5, which is also reasonable for a smart Delhi restaurant.

Chic and smooth Apr 10, 2011
This place is an oasis in a totally mad mad mad city. I walked in here and did not want to leave. There are two parts to it. In fact really there are two separate restaurants The one on the right plays no music. the one on the left has a DJ who plays very cool Indian themed chill out music that would appeal to most westerners. The food was excellent, (no stomach problems in the morning) The service was very good the atmosphere was the best in Delhi (for me). This place was the highlight of my trip to India - The Taj Mahal was good too :0)

Definite must while in Delhi Nov 04, 2009
Find this upscale restaurant in the heart of Connaught Place. Enter past the giant double doors through floor to ceiling drapes used to block out the sunlight and passersby. You’ll be greeted by a gracious host and lead to a table on the right or left of the dining area. There is a aisle dead set through the middle running to the kitchen but you will be so transfixed by the wall fixtures, mirrors, lights not to mention the various oversized hanging ceiling fixtures the aisle traffic is not a bother.

Beyond the rich atmosphere and interior design, the menu is tempting at first glance. Veda describes their offerings as “cuisine marrying the traditional with the contemporary”. I call it wonderful Indian food well worth your effort to make of a long lunch or dinner.
