Awarded a Michelin star in 2014 and winner of National Restaurant Awards Best Restaurant in the UK 2014 and Best Indian Restaurant in the UK 2015, Gymkhana is a centrally-located hideaway serving Indian food, with a strong focus on the tandoori oven. Inspired by colonial raj gymkhana clubs, the interior includes lacquered oak ceilings, glass wall lamps from Jaipur & hunting trophies from the Maharaja.

Chatpata sharing dishes are a main feature of the Gymkhana menu; other favourites include tandoori guinea fowl breast, leg & green mango chat with mint coriander chutney, wild mushroom & sweet potato shikampuri kebab with girolle raita, and jaggery sugar & black pepper caramel custard for dessert.

The lower ground floor is a modern interpretation of a 17th-century East India punch house, with an aged brass bar in the centre, oak wall panels & inky blue-leather banquettes. On either side of the room are two secluded sunken vaults, and the Gymkhana bar specialises in classic Indian punches, cocktails, and gin & tonic.

Gymkhana also offers 2 private dining vaults on the lower ground floor either side of the bar, seating 9 and 14 guests. Gymkhana in Mayfair is a 3-minute walk from Green Park Tube Station. The Gymkhana bar opens until 1am, Monday to Saturday.

    We tried some fantastic dishes on the Gymkhana menu including the tandoori fish and the duck dosa, all full of flavour with freshly ground spices. Drinks were also good with a great range of gin & tonics and cocktails. We had the lime and coriander g&t which was so refreshing with the spicy food.

    Only point to improve on was the service timings - the food came out really quickly but the drinks were rather slow. The whole experience was deserving of the Michelin star, but the service could be brushed up.

    I read about Gymkhana in a travel magazine and when my family and I were in London for vacation, we booked a table for lunch. Being from Appleton, Wisconsin in the United States, we knew little about Indian food but had to experience it being in the UK. We had the most fantastic lunch and even my kids, ages 12 and 13 were blown away by how delicious and flavorful all the dishes were. Our waiter answered our questions about the menu and made suggestions. Wow! Our lunch was amazing! It was one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant itself was beautiful and most of the patrons were Indian which made us feel like we had made a good choice. Absolutely a must if you are in London!

    This was my second visit, following my first I promised myself to return soon. The feel of the restaurant is both stylish and comfortable. The service is excellent and the food is fantastic, just wish we had a bigger appetite on this visit, we might return for some unfinished business food wise!

    Hunters Tasting Menu was very tasty, we left stuffed. Front office were also very accomodating with giving us a table for longer than the 2 hr turnaround.

    This was our second visit to Gymkhans. We LOVED the first but were very disappointed with the second. Within minutes of being seated we were told the kitchen was shortly closing,( nothing of this was said when booking)). We needed help with the menu and had to ask twice for our waiter to come to our aid and to take the order in time. The overall feeling we were left with was that we were something of a nuisance. We had also phoned ahead to mention it was a special birthday for our daughter but nothing was mentioned and not even some petit fours with a candle. Food was good but overall impressions sadly lacking and I doubt we would return. Something of a let down Gymkhana

    My wife and I had the tasting menu which was amazing value for money and represented a way for us to truly taste the magnificence of the cuisine.
    The food was really good and the service was impeccable. My wife had the vegetarian tasting menu and I had the non-vegetarian, non-game tasting menu.
    My favourite items was the Kid goat kheema and my wife's was the dosa.
    Great food, super service, good ambience and, overall, an exquisite experience.
