June 2019: a notice on their website says that The Gaylord is currently closed for renovation. July 2019: now the website's gone and so has the telephone number, so we have marked the restaurant as closed.

Summary

This Fitzrovia veteran, “the ultimate traditional Indian”, still cooks dishes in a tandoor oven imported in 1966, and believed to be the first in the UK. The menu has been successfully modernised in recent years, with such choices as ‘paneer jalfrezi tacos’ giving “an Indian twist to the Mexican street-food favourite”.

Summary

Half a century and counting, and this stately and “impeccably run” Fitzrovia veteran is “still always enjoyable” according to reports. Praise too for “new menu additions with a modern twist”, such as “Golgappa street-food shots – a food journey transporting you straight to the lanes of Old Delhi or beaches of Chowpatty!”

Summary

“Step back into the ’70s (if not at ’70s prices)” at this “ultimate traditional Indian” – a “favourite for authentic North Indian dishes” since it opened 50 years ago in Fitzrovia. The interior can feel “a little staid” but “wakes up in the evening”, and “service is hard to surpass”.

Summary

“Approaching its 50th anniversary”, this “’60s throwback” is a “civilised”, “old-fashioned” venue, with “quality”, “traditional” cuisine (recently jazzed up with a new menu) that fans find “a cut above”; it’s “expensive” though, and sceptics feel it’s still “in the dark ages”.
