Michelin-starred Gymkhana restaurant and bar is Karam Sethi's latest venture, part of the Sethi family, owners of London restaurants Trishna, Bubbledogs and The Pearson Room.
The aesthetic for the Gymkhana identity is drawn from prevalent sports at India's Gymkhana such as cricket, polo and equestrian as well as expressions of tradition, opulence through the use of crests and ornate detailing.
The menu is modern Indian with a focus on the tandoor oven and sigri charcoal grill. Signature dishes include club-style nashtas (Indian all-day snack fare) such as Duck egg and white crab bhurji. Dishes such as Achari roe deer chops, pickling spices, clove smoke, mustard mooli are served roasted from the tandoor.

Service is appropriately attentive. Can be difficult to get a table, so plan ahead. Expensive, but worth it.more

Food: We started at the upstairs bar with some poppadums and two chutneys, which were fine. I had a glass of bubbly which is always a way to make me happy. We...more
This was the first I had of two dinners in one night. I have limited time in London so need to get everything in! It's by far the coolest Indian restaurant I've ever been to.
