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 almost didnt want to write a review about this place because i love it so much and its already SO popular (yes i am turning british!). But OMG, awesome awesome place. I took hubby here for his birthday and we were both STARVING.

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.
