We read a few mediocre reviews before deciding to try this restaurant anyway and we were pleasantly surprised. We'd been in Shanghai for 5 weeks and were craving Indian food. The restaurant is located on the 3rd fl of a bldg. It took us a bit to find it. When we got there, fairly early, the place was empty. By the time we left it was full. We ordered samosa, tandoori chicken, dal, palak paneer and a fragrant rice. Everything was very good and flavorful. The service was great and expedient.. The samosa were tasty and well spiced. The tandoori was sizzling hot. The dal was very good. The palak was not the best we've had but I wouldn't expect it to be in China. It was still good although it could have used a little more spicing. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone who is seeking good Indian fare in Shanghai. We will definitely go again.

For a long time rated as the best Indian in Shanghai and it is certainly excellent. Decor very nice, run by an Indian, with Indians. You pay more than at other venues but the level - even if perhaps you don't rate it as the best in town - is undoubtedly high. Good wine list as well. All dishes were very good but in my books the best Dal Makhani in town; meanwhile the Rogan Josh, Pulau Rice and Poppadoms were definites to go for!

I've never had anything that wasn't top notch so its difficult to single out anything to talk about. If I had to pick one thing I'd say do not allow yourself to leave without trying their Afghani Chicken Tikka. Served in a hot skillet on a bed of shredded cabbage (in and of itself quite tasty) the chicken is fall-apart tender and succulent. I have it at least once a week. The owner, cooks and staff are all fantastic and work hard to give you a great experience. Highly recommended.

This has to be the best indian food I have eaten. Living in shanghai for a year and I tried many indian restaurant, but Vedas stands out for its quality of food and service.
The tandoori chicken is just out of this world, and so was the afghani chicken kebab. We also liked the spinach dish palak paneer...Fantastic service and english speaking staff who were very friendly. Great evening in a classic romantic setting.

The restaurant is beautiful. Great location and clean environment.
The food, however, is not nearly as nice. I found the food lacking flavor and spice. Chicken tikka masala was a big miss.
