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.

Top 5 reviews of Gymkhana
(4.5 stars) The restaurant is beautiful, the food here is wonderful and the lunch menu (£25 for an appetizer and main entree) is a great option. The food can be a bit spicy if you're not used to spicy foods, otherwise you should be fine. Overall the main entrees are really the stars.

- fish tikka
- lamb chops
- pork cheek vindaloo- wasn't too spicy
- butter chicken
- side of greens

Walked in at 8 PM on a weekday and somehow was able to get a seat for one immediately without a reservation. I ordered the pork cheek vindaloo with naan on the side. There were three types of naan: plain, garlic, and mint. The vindaloo was quite enjoyable, but to me it just tasted like a good curry, definitely one of the better ones I've had, but with nothing really innovative or mind-blowing... more
Gymkhana is AMAZING! We didn't have a reservation got a seat in the bar...possibly the coziest, most charming booth in the whole place! The bar was in the basement of the establishment. Both floors were full of such elegance...that of which you would expect at a gentleman's club. The drink menu was extensive.
The cuisine at Gymkhana is impressive! We decided that we would go on the servers... more
Gymkhana models its look on Indian colonial clubs in the days of the Raj. But if the look and feel are retro, co-founder Karam Sethi's cooking is anything but. Based on regional cuisines from across the subcontinent, the cooking is modern in approach, and the spice can be serious without overwhelming the layers of big and subtle flavours that bring this menu to life. There is even a nice touch... more
