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.

Wow, talk about being torn..

I went for their 50th anniversary celebrations, for which they rolled back prices to 1966 standards. Which meant a full meal would cost around a pound. At least that's what was promised. More on that later.
So, we booked two tables of four for lunch to accommodate our group, noting on the booking that we'd like to sit together. When we arrived, they showed us to two separate tables that were... more
I came here for their 50th anniversary special with a group of fabulously-friendly London Yelpers. Prices were reset to 1966, so the entire meal was only about 1 pound or so, before service charge and beverages. The food was good, but nothing really amazing. I had the chicken tikka masala and it was pretty tasty. Chutneys at the beginning were yummy and the naan was good. I wasn't crazy about... more
Expecting great and amazing things as heard so much about them from Indian friends. So was really looking forward to their 50th Anniversary Meal for their celebrations to try it out.
But it was a real disappointment, from the shambles of trying to book a table to the cold and unwelcome service on the day. It really did not feel like they wanted to celebrate with anyone at all, except their... more
Gaylord is one of those rare institutions in London that has been opened for 50 years. To celebrate their 50th anniversary they created a menu listing a few dishes at their 1966 prices, where curries were as cheap as six shillings (30p)
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
