Gymkhana is inspired by the elite clubs of India where members of high society socialise, eat, drink and play sport.

The restaurant is split over two floors each with their own distinctive look and feel. The Ground Floor is resplendent in tones of jade green, polished dark timber and rich printed fabrics inspired by residential mansions of Kolkata and Pondicherry.

A walk down the mirrored staircase will take you through to the Lower Ground Floor - a room with a vivid and warm colour palette with subtle elements of north Indian architecture woven into the design.

    The food is always excellent at Gymkhana. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The wines were all well-matched to the food. Excellent lunch again. One thing the restaurant may like to consider is not allowing babies/small children...I don’t think the ambience of this type of restaurant is suitable for them.

    Solid dining experience. Specifically booked it because of the rave reviews about the butter chicken, which was good. Not my favorite Indian restaurant I’ve been to in London, but I would go back.

    I have to admit, I wasn't overly impressed with the overall experience, especially I had been looking forward to this booking for months. The food was nice, but not excellent. Two dishes stood out (tandoori salmon and the samosa chat (veg dish)). Service was fairly average, no dish explained unless I asked the waiter to do so. Tandoori chicken was a bit burnt, the Bhel was a bit stale. I would go back just for the two dishes I liked because the salmon was incredible. Have to say overall fairly average.

    My fiancé and I arrived for a 17 30 dinner reservation and were given an early evening set menu. The prices were very reasonable without compromise to the quality of food. The set menu allowed us to sample a wide variety of dishes, from paneer tikka to hariyali bream. Needless to say, we left quite satisfied and full. The restaurant itself is reminiscent of a British establishment, cosy yet sophisticated. Oh and the cocktails are divine. I would highly recommend!

    I'm not sure why it took me so long to get to Gymkhana but me an my partner had an amazing experience on a Friday lunchtime. We have over the last 20years made a number of visits to India and the there were so many combinations of spices and taste notes that reminded us of what I call the true taste of India. We thought we had order just enough for two - for me 2 courses from the set menu and one of the 4 course menus for my partner - but we had a bit of an extravaganza. The salmon is wonderful, the kid goat rich and filling, the aloo chat fabulous, game biryani fantastic etc. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable, never intrusive; they certainly facilitated a good and relaxing experience. The ground floor of the restaurant is nice but I liked downstairs, where we sat, which had a much more private club feel. All I can say is that my partner said he would be returning during the meal, outside the restaurant and back at home; no doubt we'll be returning with friends. Oh and the Kingfisher beer is the perfect drink for this incredible food.

    Always exceptional food and service and always a must every time we come to London. Some of the best Indian food we have have ever had. Just a fair warning - ask the wait staff about the level of spice in the dishes before ordering if you are sensitive to spice. Some of the dishes will knock your socks off if you order them.

    Went for a birthday! Great staff, so attentive, polite and friendly. Very accommodating when I said I had a nut allergy and was vegetarian. Food was not as good as I had anticipated, but great portion sizes and value for money. Went at lunchtime so didn’t get the full ambiance as say dinner time when it’s darker outside. Overall would go back again though!

    2nd time I have visited London with my family in the last few months, and the 2nd time we have eaten at Gymkhana. Both experiences were consistently superb.... the balance of flavors in their dishes is excellent...butter chicken, okra, eggplant, chole...all very good. One of my biggest peeves is having a great experience one time and going back the next time and the food not being the same. This is not the case at Gymkhana. Service was fantastic and the decor perfect...a throwback theme to a long ago era. Well done!!

    I wanted to try Gymkhana after reading the reviews, but the awful service made the entire experience dreadful. My reservations were at 2pm, but I didn’t leave until 4:15 since no one came to clear our table and to give us our bill. I had to ask for the menus and had to ask for water. This was by far the worse service I experienced in London. This is unacceptable for a supposed Michelin Star restaurant.

    Amazing, to die for appetizers. Didn't get as lucky with main course. Chicken chunks in masala could have been better. Sag paneer texture should be less like creamed spinach and more like curry. Nan can be better. I still cant wait to go back and try different stuff.

    We booked a table for 2 at 2:30pm to have my BDay celebration lunch. This was our first time visiting Gymkhana following a lot of positive reviews. We arrived slightly later, approx at 2:40. The waiter gave us the menus, announced that the kitchen wad closing in 5min and disappeared. We were lost thinking that we had to leave as we couldn’t order this quickly without any help from the waiter. Then we fought him and asked to clarify if we still had time to order but instead he offered us to speak with the manager. The manager arrived and explained that we could stay and still had time to order food. Stressful and rushed welcome made us feel really unwelcome but we decided to stay as we had no alternative plans. We simply quickly followed food advice from another waiter. The food was too spicy for our taste. Unfortunately the waiter didn’t tell us that it’s the “real Indian food” which was very spicy. I couldn’t finish half of my food. Overall disappointing experience thanks to a bad welcome and rushed ordering. Wouldn’t come back or recommend visiting.
