Interesting modern British Indian cooking. Recommended for vegetarians.
The set lunch is very good value, imaginative and plentiful. There is a good choice of fairly expensive but very tasty wines, cocktails etc. and I particularly appreciated the range of zero alcohol cocktails.
It was quiet when we went so I do not know if it gets noisy when full, but the tables were large and well-spaced.
The service could not have been better, from all the staff.
The one problem was that my husband's seabass was dry and overcooked when it arrived. He mentioned this fact and immediately the plate was taken away and another one brought a little later (freshly cooked and as it should be). Everyone make mistakes; it is what happens afterwards that marks out a good establishment. We received the chef's apologies and agreement that the fish was not right the first time, so we shall be very happy to come here again. (I would like the tasting menu next time. It sounds amazing!)
P.S. I mentioned that it was my birthday and received an additional treat.

Very attentive staff, the food was tasty, however I had the lamb which was tough. The table was moving when I tried to cut through it, I had to ask for a steak knife. My son had fish for a starter which he said was delicious he had lamb for main which was also tough and needed a steak knife to cut through his. My husband had the lobster which he enjoyed.

We chose the lunchtime menu which is excellent value for money, with most unusual starters which were delicious, the main courses were also excellent and served with pilau rice and a black lentil dhal.

My wife and I love fine dining so on the spur of the moment we booked this a table at Vaasu for a pre theatre meal.
We had read much about Atul Kochar over the years and always thought we could be assured of a good experience should we dine in one of his restaurants. We could not have been more disappointed.
The service was mediocre but not bad. The food was a huge let down.
My wife ordered a vegetarian parcel which seemed to be made of concrete and was almost impossible to cut.i am a real venison lover so I ordered that. What arrived was two pieces of meat which were maybe 1 1/2 inches square! I thought for over £30 I would at least feel that I hadn’t been diddled but sadly the rest of the meal was terrible too.
The much vaunted Mums lentil dish was so strongly flavoured with cloves that it was just medicinal and inedible.
I could go on....
As we were tight for time we decided to just put the visit down to experience and move on. ...
Then we got the bill. I was prepared for it to be pricy but when I read £169 I nearly laughed. On close inspection I found that my wife’s gin and tonic was £14.70!!!
I’m happy to pay good money for a good meal and a special experience but this was probably the worst meal we’ve had for many a year.
I could not recommend any aspect of this restaurant.
Our local Indian eatery is a better place to visit and the food and staff are exemplary, everything that Vaasu is not.
So disappointed, please avoid at all costs.

Food was not what I expected the meat starters was very dry and the vegetarian starter was not the taste I expected. Meat main was good, vegetarian main was not value for money.

We found the food & drinks to be exceptional, the service from some of the staff was questionable at best - We would come back as both of us are massive fans of Atul's food, I would hope the staff improve.

Highly recommended.
