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.

Very tasty food and excellent decor. Like the China Club in Hong Kong, this restaurant harks back to the days of colonialism, featuring photos and paraphernalia from the British Raj in North India. Unlike the China Club, the staff don't make customers feel like they are actively participating in cultural hegemony and oppression.
The menu is mostly game-based, but as I went with my mom (a...more
I was very very disappointed and so was my friend. I was so excited to eat at Gymkhana as I read a lot about it (most of the review I read, people were invited to eat there).
They won a Michelin star so I thought it would be a very special place for Indian food, now I know that doesn't mean anything at all. We left the place and both thought that next time we want an Indian dinner we will just...more
I went to Gymkhana not just a little bit doubtful if it would be any good. I still recalled my last encounter with a Michelin starred Indian restaurant, Benares, with a certain level of horror as that was just horrendous.
