‘To churn and reflect’
Manthan is a reflection of chef Rohit Ghai’s life in food. From the markets of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh (where he grew up) to professional kitchens all over the world, Ghai has experienced myriad flavours and cookery techniques, all of which come together in his new Mayfair kitchen.
"I’ve never cooked this way before in London - dishes that truly speak to my past, as well as my present."
Rohit Ghai, Chef Patron
This is Ghai’s second restaurant with business partner Abhishake Sangwan (the first, Kutir, opened in Chelsea in 2018). The duo have led some of the UK’s more decorated establishments, earning a Michelin star in the process, and now return to Mayfair where they first worked together 10 years ago.
"Co-founder Abhi Sangwan has carried that theme through to the drinks list with a cocktail menu inspired by the seven oceans of the world and featuring fresh exotic fruits, botanicals and infusions. The Menaka, with wild hibiscus-infused mescal, vanilla, bitters and jasmine & white peach soda, was smoky and sweet and went down a treat."
Abhi Sangwan, Co-founder
Manthan’s menu represents home-style cooking and professional techniques. Flavour-packed street food-style bar snacks and sharing plates sit alongside mouth-watering grills, curries, and a selection of Ghai’s mother’s signature dishes and family recipes.
We also serve cocktails that have been created to complement our dishes. Inspired by, and named after, the seven oceans of the world, these signature serves feature fresh exotic fruits, grilled and then muddled in the kitchen, as well as a range of botanicals and infusions.
