Inspired by the Colonial Indian social and sports clubs bearing the same name, Gymkhana is set to open next month in Mayfair. The restaurant will be a second venture for  Mr. Karam Sethi, who earned his first Michelin star last year as Patron Chef of Trishna London.

The dishes will combine British ingredients with Indian techniques and will include club style nashtas, club sharing plates of tandoori kebabs and sigri grills, and seasonal curries and biryanis in the Dum Pukht style. Traditional Indian breads will be cooked on the tandoor and tawa skillet and there will be a feast menu available for groups with game bird feasts, Goan suckling pig, Lucknowi kid goat raan and tandoori guinea fowl.

Gymkhana will specialise in modern interpretations of traditional East Indian punch tavern drinks and it is for the first time in London, a bar will feature a range of spirits, tonics and mixers from the sub-continent, including feni and arrack.

Mr. Karam Sethi, Owner, says “the social and sports clubs of India have always been renowned for serving excellent tandoori and chatpatta food. Their dining culture is about sharing frequently with copious amounts of alcohol and I wanted to capture that sense of opulence and celebration at Gymkhana.”
