I dined at Gaylord Indian restaurant in Fitzrovia with my favourite girl Ellie Matthews. Known to be the 2nd oldest Indian restaurant in London and couldn’t wait to taste what they had to offer. I over heard an old couple next to me how they’ve been dining at the Gaylord for over 20 years!! Whaaat!!! It really says something when returning customers loyally come back for more. We asked the waiter to recommend the dishes for us so we had ordered:
A Prosecco for Elle and a non alcoholic Sea Breeze mocktail for me.
5 shots of non alcoholic Golgappa’s …each (best to order 1 set between 2, 5 shots each was a little too much for us), was an interesting starter to sample and great novelty too.
Garlic and chilli naan triangles (soo crunchy and delisshh! There were so much of it we didn’t want it to go to waste so we wrapped that to go).
For our main: i had the lamb shank (omg it was juicy, succulent and the lamb just fell off the bone) whilst Ellie had the butter chicken (Gaylord’s popular main dishes you should try). Our main was accompanied with saffron fried rice which complemented the main very well. Ellie and I just dived into each other’s meals and we eventually had food babies.
Final surprise: the waiter surprised us with a flambeed surprise, I can’t for the life of me remember what it was called but if you show them my picture they will know exactly what it is 😉 it was a great party trick to end the evening and the service was impeccably attentive. Thanks so much for having us!!
