Sporting a striking new menu, slick, all-ivory interior and minimalist glass frontage, what has often been referred to as one of London’s oldest Indian restaurants has been sharply brought bang up to date this summer. Re-launched in September, Gaylord in London’s Mortimer Street was first established in 1966 and is run in an unapologetically traditional manner by the Delhi-based founders, who have carved a niche with an acclaimed north Indian mogul menu. Now design innovations and some newer, more exotic combinations have been introduced to enhance the existing menu. Balancing tradition with modernity, Gaylord continues to excel in the creation of authentic, cutting-edge dishes that celebrate the best of classic and contemporary Indian.

The place was much more grand than a regular Indian restaurant where staff are in suits. Service was attentive, regularly coming over to check if things were...more
Enjoyed the price of 1966's menu celebrating its 50 years in London where a chicken tikka masala was six shillings which is equivalent to 30p today. So we ordered literally everything on the special menu for a special celebration.more
Gaylordddddddddddddd!!! I totally remember kids calling other kids that when we were younger. Who would've known it would turn out to be one of the hottest locations for Indian cuisine!!
I came here for a wine and food pairing event so I knew that I'd be sampling a few of their dishes... Didn't know it would be 11 of them!! What a treat!
The wines we had to go with the food were all Indian...more
