Dear diners, please contact the restaurant directly if no availability is displayed.
St Albans is lucky to have Veer Dhara One, an Indian restaurant that’s name is synonymous with authentic cooking, excellent service and high-quality dining. No matter your expectations, we’re certain that the folks at this excellent town centre restaurant will impress even the pickiest of foodies with their superbly spiced mains, vegetarian dishes and house specialities. Bring the whole family along to Veer Dhara One, found down Hatfield Road in the heart of St Albans, for an unforgettable feast.
The storied history of Indian food in the United Kingdom goes back hundreds of years, and continues to be added to by the day. From the Hindoostanee Coffee House on the banks of the Thames to the birth of the chicken tikka masala up in Glasgow, from the enclaves of the Balti Triangle in the Midlands to the Curry Mile in Manchester, up and down the length of the isles there is a love of the cooking of the subcontinent, and the Hertfordshire town of St Albans is no different. Home to Veer Dhara One, the town has much to be proud of in the realm of the Indian culinary world.
While the best curry house in St Albans may not be as celebrated as others more nationally known, Veer Dhara One is certainly well loved locally, and when you pay them a visit on Hatfield Road in the town centre, it is easy to see why. We recommend the lobster curry with lime and turmeric, the prawn sofyani biryani and the kori gassi, chicken in a thin sauce with tamarind pulp, coconut, chillies, garlic and plenty of spices. Book a table at Veer Dhara One and get ready for an Indian restaurant in St Albans town centre quite unlike any other.
I haven’t been to since they moved to then venue which which is great. The service and food is even better then I remember it. Highly reccomended
The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff were friendly. The food was as good as we had hoped for and there are plenty of vegetarian options. The Dal Makhanni should not be missed!
Excellent venue for lunch. Limited menu - which keeps things nice and simple. Great value dishes with attentive service. Nice selection of wines and draught beers. Highly recommended.
Great meal as always. You don’t have to preorder naan!
Veer Dhara is my favourite St. Albans Indian food offer, because it is spicy not sweet, and they pay really careful attention to what is safe for someone with a gluten allergy. The staff and chefs always insure that some members of our party get food that has absolutely not come into contact with glutenous ingredients. That is hard to find in a restaurant, and speaks highly to their attention to quality and customer service. Just as important, the food is really good. Fresh and spicy. Maybe too spicy for some people, but my family enjoys it more than the too sweet offerings of most other Indian restaurants in St. Albans. The restaurant is lovely and clean. Usually the service is excellent... sometimes it is a little less than perfect, but even then, it is friendly - just maybe not attentive. The Sunday buffet with the magician is a great family treat.
Veer Dhara One is genuinely the best curry that I have ever eaten. The food was all cooked to perfection, and the flavors were amazing. The staff were also all extremely polite and happy to help us. I couldn't recommend this more.
Décor impressive, service good, and food was very good too - and as others say, quite different from the run-of-the -mill curry house. Free parking nearby in Bricket Road on a Saturday evening, no problem. My only criticism, and this is personal to me, is that it is quite noisy when full, and I had difficulty with conversation. Most people seemed unfazed by this. I would go again during the week as there is a lot to like on the menu, especially the sea bass, and prices were reasonable as well..
There were 3 of us.We had booked online but they clearly weren't expecting us.The first waiter didn't understand English so it was difficult to order drinks. The 2nd waiter who had spent a long time on his moblie and was dressed so casually we didn't realise he was a waiter took our order. The 3rd waiter bought the food quite quickly and it was good although we didn't get the poppadums we ordered. There was another 1 or 2 other members of staff at the restaurant. If fact they were as many staff as customers.The restaurant was cold.
Excellent staff, service, food and value for money. I would highly recommend Veer Dhara One to anyone looking for a good meal in St Albans.
Food was amazing fresh and tasty. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the staff were friendly and officent. The only problem was they seem to be in a rush to get you out after eating, this could be that it was a Saturday but it spoilt my enjoyment with being able to talk to my friends after each course.
