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

This is the epitome of a restaurant. It is the gold standard for the 5/5 star yelp rating and frankly I think other restaurants can be judged against it.

We went here on a recommendation from my attending and she was right. Being Indian myself, I judge Indian food quite seriously and probably critically compared to the average yelper. This place offered authentic Indian food in traditional...more

Our waiter was great and I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious everything was.more

I'm really baffled by the Michelin rating assignment. You can eat at a Michelin star restaurant meal in London or New York without breaking the bank. That's a fact. You cannot do so in San Francisco. You just can't. They must be handing them out like candies in London and New York. Other cities have to earn it. Both in the quality of food and the price of the meal.
