Critically acclaimed Chef Rohit Ghai and Abhishake Sangwan will return to Mayfair - the neighbourhood where Rohit made his name and they first began to work with one another – to launch Manthan.

Manthan, meaning to churn and reflect, is inspired by Ghai's extensive international career to date, and dishes will reflect his culinary experiences – both professional and personal – in kitchens all over the world as well as the street food markets, he has frequented for over 20 years throughout India.

Drinks-wise, a concise cocktail menu has been compiled by Abhi, formerly of Trishna and Bombay Bustle. The name Manthan also refers to the churning of the oceans and references Hindu mythology.

Interiors of sleek dark wood and marble finishes, and seats are arranged around a central statement bar, providing the perfect backdrop for convivial dining, drinking, and snacking.

    The ambience was great, service was good but slow, before finishing the main the manager approached us and told us we have to harry as someone booked the table and it time to go, here I felt soo uncomfortable and unwelcome as if I was kicked out, I didn’t like that that is why will never go back for that amount of money I could go somewhere else and have some more respect. Food is good but very spicy when I asked why so spicy, said that the chef signature to be too spicy, if you like very spicy that good for you

    We have eaten in many high end Indian restaurants in London but Manthan was a cut above all. They have a small menu but every dish is meticulously prepared with so much attention to flavour profiles. We are vegetarians and had the beetroot cutlet which are to die for - nicely spices and so much flavour in each bite. The black daal with fried fenugreek - yumm and the egg korma with (what I think were) melon seeds - WOW. Even the pol roti which I had never eaten before was such a smashing hit that we ordered another one. Planning to come back - the food was excellent.

    Our table was next to the door which meant that we got an icy blast each time anyone walked in or out of the restaurant. The staters were fine but the mains were designed to show off rather than because the dish was better.

    Loved the food. The lamb chops was outstanding. As was the pyaz pakora chat and the prawn starter. Avoid the masala tea - milky and sweet. Service was great and our water glasses was kept topped up at all times and empty bowls and dishes cleared quickly. We were initially told that the table would be needed after 2 hours and though the restaurant was full we were not asked to leave and stayed right up to closing time! Overall lovely little restaurant though would not recommend with kids. Perfect for a couple or with a group of friends.

    Surprised my partner with birthday dinner at Manthan after reading an article recommending authentic Indian restaurants that weren’t Dishoom. This was such a breath of fresh air dining experience! The ambiance, service, decor, & food - were all top tier. The menu recommendations were wonderful from our waiter & it’s definitely worth trusting them on pairing flavours as they’re knowledgeable about their heritage regarding ingredients. The entire experience felt quite private & calm, thanks to the layout of seating & gorgeous creative detail - despite the restaurant being almost full. The food was delicious - the best Chicken Masala Tikka we have ever had & the Saag Paneer was equally as tasty. We ordered several other dishes & everything was spiced to perfection, tender & just beautifully presented too. Manthan even did a surprise dessert with a happy birthday note & candle! When we left I asked my partner to take me back for our next celebratory event, as it was just so great! Thank you Manthan! :)

    The food was excellent, although a bit too spicy for me. Osso bucco was very tasty and the prawns for a starter too. What was amazingly tasty was the chocolate brownie desert. What a perfect closure of a wonderful dinner in an elegant atmosphere along with a superb service 👌

    Average. The service was non existent, we were served dishes whilst they were taking orders from another table, literally. Food was so so, we liked the fish and meat chop as starters. Mains were very fatty, we didn’t like them at all (lamb, dhal and chicken tikka) and they both tasted of fish (fish oil?). Chocolate desert was good and we really enjoyed that. Upon leaving they grabbed our coats, handed them in and opened the doors to leave. I had to say sorry it’s raining and we have to put the coats on and take our umbrellas at which point they closed the doors and waited for us to dress and leave… Overall we’ll never come here again, me & my partner both agreed but at least we didn’t feel hungry as portions were reasonable.

    Stay away from this place. Rude waiters, condescending service. One waiter wanted to get into a fight with us when we raised concerns about his attitude with our group. It seems they only prefer a certain sort of clientele at their place. Never felt so intimidated and discriminated at a restaurant in central london
