Date Night at Gymkhana | London

Dining out on fancy a.k.a no basic Nandos dinner dates has become a bit of a rarity for us. It isn’t that we don’t want to because trust me – there are so many restaurants out there that I would love to go to – but quite simply, we’re just a bit smarter with our money.

K told me about Gymkhana a few months ago and it is notorious for its difficulty in booking reservations. You can’t book more than two months in advance and even then getting a decent dinner time reservation was harder than it seemed.

After managing to get an early dinner reservation at Gymkhana it did not disappoint. The Michelin star restaurant welcomed us with a warm smile and the 5 star experience began.

The menu was small but not too limited, and the staff were great at recommending the most delicious dishes.

it was pretty easy making our way through the menu with the help of our waiter who was always on hand to refill drinks and check we were satisfied with the food we had ordered.

The starters were amazing and as usual we ordered way too much. In fact we were pretty lucky we didn’t go too heavy on our main courses as that Potato Chat could definitely feed a family! My favourite was the Paneer Tikka, because who doesn’t love a bit of cheese?

The Chicken Butter Masala is second to none and is the best we’ve had. It is a pretty safe dish to have and is always flavourful. No wonder it is one of Gymkhana’s best dishes!

It is no surprise that Gymkhana is one of London’s top restaurants for Indian dining; with both impeccable service and mouthwatering good dishes, you need to book your reservation.

Well, if you can that is.
