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.

Gymkhana is modeled (and named) after social and sporting clubs in the days of the Raj. As such, the vibe here is both unique and interesting. More "casual bistro" than "Michelin-starred restaurant". What makes Gymkhana stand out even more is the creativity with their dishes, several of which incorporate a modern twist to classic Indian preparations. Don't leave without trying their kid goat... more
Our reservations were for 6 pm on a weekday and our table was ready when we walked in. The decor was relatively traditional and fancy while not being too overbearing. The entire waitstaff was phenomenal throughout our entire meal and helpful with the menu. We ordered the goat appetizer, duck appetizer, and also the biryani.
