EATING OUT: Gymkhana London

We (as in hubby and I) decided to venture down to the 'Big Smoke' to have a few days away for his birthday over the bank holiday. All that we did was eat! Eat and eat and eat! So, I thought I'd do a post on some of the places that we visited and let you know what we had :)

We arrived on the Saturday and didn't really eat properly until the evening as we arrived late afternoon. We organised a meal with some friends and family and booked a private room in the Indian restaurant called Gymkhana in Mayfair. As there was quite a big group of us we got to try lots of food!

So for starters we had popadoms and Gol Guppas with chutneys. Please excuse the mess in the background, but this place was like being at home. We had our own little space where we kind of just dumped our bags and coats ha ha!




Yummy non-alcoholic cocktails. This is a Pomegranate and Lemongrass Fizz and a Shalamar Rose - Both were delicious!


Oh my god! This was only half of it! There was so much food! We had fish, aloo tikki, cauliflower tikka, dahl, aubergine, lamb, kebabs, naan and rota, all sorts of food! - obviously I didn't eat any meat but the food was seriously good. The came desserts...


First there was Cardamon and Strawberry Kheer (Rice Pudding)


Then Ras Malai with Tandoori Pear Chutney


Then Mango & Lime Falooda, Mango Kulfi



And finally... The Happy Birthday Cake!


We had such a lovely meal, great friends, great family and a very Happy Birthday! I would really recommend this place, everything I ate I enjoyed a lot. I didn't get to eat any dessert (all a bit too much dairy for me) but I hear they were excellent!

Thanks so much for reading, more London posts coming soon!
