Squaremeal Review of Gaylord Restaurant ?

Something of a legend among aficionados of old-school Indian cuisine, the Gaylord has been trading on Mortimer Street since 1966. With its distinctive blue awnings, minimalist glass frontage, ivory-toned interior and smartly laid tables, the elegant dining room puts on quite a regal show, and the kitchen responds by delivering richly flavoured dishes with a familiar ring: onion bhajias, samosas and tandooris, alongside rogan josh, lamb korma, king prawn biryani and ‘good old CTM’ (chicken tikka masala). Occasional voguish flurries such as puffed-up golgappa savouries with a shot of Grey Goose vodka raise the tempo, but desserts like gulab jamun flamed with rum catapult diners straight back to the old days. Two-course lunches are a bargain at £10, and the drinks list runs from Kingfisher beer to a decent assortment of spice-friendly wines. Takeaways and home deliveries available.

    TheFoodaholic :: REVIEW: Gaylord Restaurant, Mortimer Street, Fitzrovia -

    Gaylord restaurant opened in 1966 and is said to be one of the oldest Indian restaurants in London (although I know a couple of older ones around the centre of town). This family restaurant is owned by the Kwality Group who operate other restaurant outlets in Delhi and Mumbai. For a restaurant to still be standing strong and proud within London’s current foodie scene for over 45 years, is rather impressive. The restaurant was rather quiet when we arrived, but by the time we finished up it was packed. To settle us we ordered an espresso martin, which I think was simply a glass of Baileys – I wouldn’t recommend it (unless...

    The award winning Gaylord Indian Restaurant was founded in 1966 and is an offshoot of the original Gaylord in Mumbai which opened in 1956. The cuisine originates from North of India with a menu that is long, varied and eclectic. The décor also embodies an authentic Indian experience with artworks by the noted Indian painter Prithvi Soni.

    We dined at Gaylord recently as part of a Zomato bloggers’ dinner and Gaylord took the difficulty of choosing from its extensive menu by serving us a selection of their highlight dishes. There was food aplenty, and it was such a delight to have the opportunity to taste so...

    Another restaurant rich with history, established in 1966, they are in fact one of the oldest Indian restaurants around. Situated in the back streets of Oxford Circus, their front door is plastered with recommended timeout, squaremeal and tripadvisor stickers to illustrate that their name is worthy of recognition.

    This restaurant is in fact the sister restaurant of Gaylord in Mumbai, India...

    inher30s :: Gaylord Indian restaurant | inher30s

    Gaylord is of the old school brand of Indian restaurants, white tablecloths, smartly clothed staff and more food than you can shake a stick at. They’re launching a new menu and the good folk at Zomato (My go to foodie website) have invited me to give it a go. And when I say give it a go by the way, what I really mean is try the entire menu, every single item. I was broken.

    Indian snack style food is my absolute all time favourite, hence my love of places like Dishoom & Masala Zone and this is the sort of food I gorge myself on when visiting family in India and this does not disappoint. Shots of tangy...

    The Lifestyle Diaries :: The Lifestyle Diaries: Dinner at Gaylord's Restaurant

    I love a good curry, and so does the mister. In fact, he nearly jumped when I said I'd been invited to review Gaylord's new menu! And so last Friday we made the trip down to Marlyebone to visit Gaylord's, and boy, we weren't disappointed; the food, the service and the ambiance we all excellent.

    Just wait till you see this food, you'll be making a reservation before you can finish looking at all the photos!...
