“Mediocre”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

Veer is on the same site as the old Benares, a restaurant which I used to find reliably good. The rebranded Veer looks good from the outside and promises an "Indian Restaurant" experience instead of "Curry House".

Upon arrival we were seated and immediately offered popadums and a drink which was a good start. However, no Cobra available (really? how do you run out of Cobra?), just Kingfisher. And no Mongoose even on the menu which was a shame.

Popadums were nice and the dips looked good but weren't actually that great. All a bit watery and sickly to be honest.

The menu was interesting with some decent ideas on there, and maybe we selected wrongly, but they just didn't work. The food was bland, even the dishes with heat in them and for the first time in a long time, we didn't finish the food on the table.

The staff were friendly although we didn't need to be asked 5 times whether our meal was OK Maybe they suspected something. Paying was a bit of a farce too with the card machine not working for about 10 minutes, but that does happen sometimes I guess.

All in all, it was "OK". Not sure why they decided to rebrand from Benares (same staff, Benares charged to my card) but it didn't do it for me and we won't be hurrying back for a distinctly average meal at the higher end of the indian food price range in this area (£27 a head for food + 2 drinks each). £4.50 for a pint of coke was taking the mickey as well.....

“Interesting new dishes”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

We visited Veer after a friend who lives nearby suggested it. I have to say that this place has a very different menu with a vast variety of differant from the normal dishes. There were even extra dip incl tarrimind and a pink coconut. Well worth the visit and will return

“How refreshing- some different interesting dishes -very tasty”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

We tried a take away from Veer for the first time yesterday. We hadn't noticed the new place until recently but picked up a menu and were relieved to see it had some very different dishes rather than the standards seemingly on offer from every other Indian restaurant.

Service was so friendly and helpful when we went to collect-and we were given several extra dishes to enjoy.Favourites were the Magic Prawns- big juicy jumbo prawns with butter beans and spinach- sounds strange I know but delicious sauce. The pumpkin dish was also a big hit.

Recommend that you give them a try.By the way they deliver too.
