Being self labelled Indian cuisine connoisseur my husband and I were really looking forward to trying Gymkhana. We booked a table for 6:30pm on a Friday. I opted for the taster menus and hubby had the vault menu both of which were 7 courses. You would expect such a menu to have scaled down (size wise) portions, however they were... More

Had dinner here with my partner the other night for the first time, and the food is delicious. I had the babe goat starter and lamb chops for main- which were out if this world. The balance of flavours was beautiful and literally everything we are was amazing! Service also was excellent- and we were welcomed by a lovely hostess... More

I had the vegetarian taster menu and was disappointed. Normally Indian food is a great choice for vegetarians with plenty of variety and flavour but none of this was evident at Gymkhana. There was plenty of heat but no depth to the spices so the dishes lacked individuality. The paneer was soggy while the kindest thing I can say about... More

Great location, helpful and attentive staff but NOT obsequious or all over you – good spread of wines and prices – you can easily find a bottle of red for £26-40 which is great – clearly not trying to claw in the coffers by only offering expensive wine. Really nice décor – simple, elegant and spacious (especially down stairs!) The... More

Amazing restaurant. Love the setting and ambiance. Staff not only friendly but extremely knowledgeable. And the food? If you like Indian then this really is off the grid. What a treat. Great dining and overall night out. Thank you.

The food made up for an early hiccup. So I will write about the good first. In terms of desi (Indian) food Gymkhana is today where Amaya was when it opened. If the current chefs stay on there is no reason for things to change unless the management becomes complacent, what in the hospitality industry is the cardinal sin. We... More

Ate here for the second time last week and must say this is one of the best asian restaurants I've eaten in. I travel to India a lot for business and I've never had food to match that of Gymkhana. The service is also excellent with each course describe in detail as it's brought to the table. The only down... More

I had been looking forward to this for quite a while. My wife had bought me a gift voucher after I had expressed a desire to go after reading many very favourable reviews. First impressions were not brilliant - it is really not much more than a pretty swish bar .... but the food is what makes this place. The... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
