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.

This restaurant has been around for ages. Old school Indian restaurant with good attentive staff and a wide range of excellent dishes. I quite like the slightly dared decor. They have a take away menu which I have not tried. But this is probably my favourite Indian restaurant which to me feels more comfortable than the Bombay Brasserie with food of a similar standard. Their own house specials...more
It used to be good. Now is so-so. Ok for a palate used to mild kormas - not ethnic enough! Service needs improvement.more
If you are on a budget like me, at a fancy place like this, I recommend going with a bunch of friends and ordering family style! We went with 9 people and got two starters, three mains, one side, two naans, and one order of rice and it only came out to 10 pounds per person!
Everything we ordered was really tasty. I especially liked the onion bhajia (spelling?) appetizer. Warning-eat slowly...more
