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.

Irene F. bronze reviewer 15 November 2013

Went to this restaurant with three girlfriends for lunch and the food was absolutely scrumptious, all that I had expected and more. One of the ladies is vegetarian and the choice and quality of food there is on the menu for vegetarians is outstanding. The décor and ambience of the restaurant is bright, beautiful and stylish. Nice mixture of clientele as well, from business to private creating a good atmosphere. The service is good. There were a couple of small hiccups which were quickly dealt with by the staff to our satisfaction. It is a pretty expensive restaurant but we had a 50% off main course offer which made it more affordable and with another offer, we would most certainly go again.
