    I really like Indian cuisine. This is one of my favorite actually, just after french (unbeatable) and before italian food (mamamia).

    One of my indian coworker strongly advised me to try Vedas. He told me it was the best indian restaurant in town. Well it is not, but I think you should give a try.

    So I just went on a Monday night with my girlfriend for take-away food (not in a mood to sit around people, better eat these big dishes on the sofa at home. You know, Monday...). I was really surprised by the number of people for a Monday night. It was almost full, with mixed laowai and local crowd. By the way, the decor is very nice, I would say modern indian style, and they have an open kitchen.

    So we just sit on the bar and start to order: butter chicken, spinach with paneer, black lentils dahl, some plain naans and some pratas. The owner (I guess) just served us two glasses of wine while waiting, something that never happened to me in Shanghai. We also had a small talk, it was really nice to be received like this.

    About the food, it was OK but not exceptionnal: the butter chicken was too sweet, the paneer was very good but lacked of spices. Dahl was perfect, spicy and full of flavors, just the way I like it.

    So why my coworker told me it was the best in Shanghai? I think it is because the taste is more authentic. They might cook the food just the way they do in India, which is good. But with my naive western taste, I would definitely prefer a Masala Art or Nepali kitchen (favorite restaurant ever in Shanghai) for fine food. But really, go to Vedas! I think I will come back to try some other dishes.

    Not bad at all

    Short version - its worth going to if your wallet can stand it.

    The food is awesome. The only thing that wasn't 5/5 was the samosas (a little bit bland) and the nan bread (slightly burnt, but only slightly). Rice, bhajis and curries were all excellent, full of flavor, high quality ingredients and great taste. If you like British style Indian food you'll like it here.

    Décor and atmosphere are nice - its not too bright or too dark, the tables are big enough and the music is quiet enough to not interfere with talking.

    Service - great if they are quiet, really attentive but if they're busy it goes downhill a bit, and you may have to ask for things again / shout for the waiters attention etc.

    Price - the food isn't too bad (its no worse than anywhere else that caters to expats as its main market, but still there's not much for under 70 RMB) but I thought the beer prices were a bit cheeky. Expect to pay around 500 RMB for 2, so not somewhere I can personally afford to take the wife every week.

    Overall - I'd go there all the time if I was richer :p As it is, a great "special occasion" place in you're in the mood for a curry like back home.
    Nice if you like Indian Food

    I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The service and food quality are excellent.

    My wife and I decided to try something new, and after reading a little, decided on Indian. Vedas was the most conveniently located and quality Indian place, so we headed out. It is located on the 3rd floor, in a building with lots of other restaurants, but does not have great signage from the street. I knew it was there because I was going there, but wouldn't have if I was just walking by.

    The staff provide excellent service. Our waiter was Indian, from Punjab region, and was able to explain in detail the nuances of the menu. I ordered something that wasn't on the menu, and he was able to explain why the chef would do a great job. Which he did. He also spoke perfect English. The meals also came out quickly.

    The food quality is excellent. I will have to think of a way not to over indulge now that I have found this place, or I will gain a lot of weight. We had butter paneer (not on the menu,..the paneer was excellent) and the eggplant dish. We also had the veggie samosas.

    I marked Value for Money as a 4 due to the fact that it is a little pricy. However, the quality is excellent.

    I marked the decor as a 4 due to the fact that its a little dated. Its comfortable though, and the temperature is perfect.

    I marked suitable for business dinner as a 2. The reason for this is that there is very loud, club like, and not indian at all, music playing in the background. I think its pretty awesome for a date, or friends,...but not for business. At least thats my personal view.
