Neither Fire nor Pandemic Can Keep Me Away

Gymkhana is a one Michelin Star Indian restaurant in London. I have always wanted to come here. Last time I was in London, a fire kept it closed, the previous time it was impossible to get a reservation, then the pandemic hit and travel stopped. I did try their sister restaurant Trishna on another occasion and it was fantastic.

We ordered a lot for two people. We should of just did the tasting menu, but we had a lot of leftovers for the following night, and the food was even better at the hotel. We ordered:

pappadums with various sauces

venison stuffed naan

duck egg bhurji with lobster

chicken tikka

tandoori masala lamb chops

chicken butter masala

…and for dessert kheer, chai and gujarat rose petals…

Overall, service was good and the ambiance was great. The food was delicious. Not only was the curry and spices on point, but the meats had a seared flavor that showed off the level of detail and extra processes they took to ensure maximum flavor.
