The Michelin-star Indian restaurant re-opens in Mayfair
The two-storey restaurant has put in place a number of precautions.
Staff have their temperature checked each day and wear face coverings. Their shifts are staggered to encourage social distancing in staff areas.
Diners meanwhile will be asked to leave contact details with the restaurant. This is so Gymkhana can trace you in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak.
In addition to the above, the restaurant has adjusted its layout and has single use or digital menus. Contactless payment methods are preferred.
Diners can opt for the tasting menu or a la carte. Sample dishes include aloo chat with tamarind chutney, Goan prawn curry, guinea fowl and pork cheek vindaloo.
Inspired by India’s elite sports clubs, the restaurant has a classic look, featuring ceiling fans, hunting trophies and mirrors set against dark timber.
A mirrored staircase connects the ground and lower ground floors, both of which have a bar.
The ground floor’s booth seating is separated with low rattan screens, which means diners sit back to back rather than side by side – ideal during times of Covid-19.
