Veeraswamy (Mayfair
99 Regent St.(Piccadilly Circus) London, GB, W1 0171-734 1401
Whilst fans salute the 'fabulous reincarnation' of this 'long-established' (since 1926) Regent Street Indian, which now boasts 'sleek', 'trendy' decor and a 'different' regional menu, critics say it 'lost its good old imperial' ambience and claim the cooking 'does not live up to the hype'; still, to the majority it's a 'classy' 'Indian dining experience', 'not a curry house.'

Tamarind (Mayfair)
20 Queen St.(Green Park) London, GB, W1 0171-629 3561

At this chic Mayfair Indian, the 'ambience and food are spectacular and the prices match' ('cheaper to fly to Delhi' grumble some), but admirers don't mind paying more for 'superior' food from the northwest frontier; it's a 'favourite for business dinners' and regulars say 'let the waiters choose -- you won't be disappointed.'
...and Rasa Samudra
5 Charlotte St. (Tottenham Court)
