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.

Be advised that we do allow children under the age of 12 during our lunch service only

Good service overall, but there was a mix up with the desserts and they brought one we didn't order, left it on our table, but then took it back after as we hadn't yet started to eat dessert which was a bit odd...

Decor was luxurious, however, toilets are unisex and there are only 2….very very small self contained cubicles with a sink…water everywhere…..the only thing that detracted from the otherwise great ambience and experience of the place.

Interesting dishes but be prepared to pay as it’s very expensive. Also, it was so so cold in the place, such that we had to keep our coats on. Overall, interesting but we won’t be returning.

Sam was amazing and we will be back.

                                                                  Great décor, love all the frames and ceiling. Unfortunately my food experience didn't match that. We had the set menu. It was all tasty, can't deny that. However the chilli level was over the top. I grew up in India so I'm not unfamiliar with varying levels of spice used in different parts of India. However it is not necessary to have all food so spicy that I ended having acid reflux and burps quite soon after. My partner who normally tolerates more spice than me, had bad acidity at night , feeling almost sick... This is not for me.

The menu is a bit impenetrable, but that didnt matter because the server was so helpful. We chose a selection from street foods and then again a delicious mix from the main courses and grills which we shared. We ate far too much. The lamb osso bucco is an absolute must, and the daal also a winner - however we all enjoyed everything. It is all beautifully cooked and presented, and every set of spices distinct from the other - no muddy flavours and samey sauces here. The sri lankan bread went fantastically with everything but is small - order two! Despite having no room for puddings we pressed on and shared them. The garlic one (yes garlic) is stunning. We will be back.
