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 good food and setting. Food with spices isn't my top choice usually however this was fantastic. Every dish ordered was great from starters to mains to dessert. The restaurant is pricey however worth checking out if you can.more

This is my favorite Indian cuisine in the world! Creative, interesting, a mix of new and traditional. The flavors are outstanding! A place where you can savor each bite.
