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.

I love Indian food and I really LOVE this restaurant. Dinner reservations are tough to get, but lunch is still outstanding or you can try for a spot at the bar. I eat here every time I'm in London.
No matter what you order, you'll wind up with too much food and it will be glorious. Its a good mix of traditional with contemporary, but still very much Indian. People who are spice-averse...more
