A short history of Mayfair – and Manthan’s place within it



Playing its own part in the evolving history of Mayfair has been Manthan. Opening its doors in 2021 on the 49 Maddox Street site previously occupied by such beloved eateries as Lucknow 49 and The Hamilton’s Café, our own Indian restaurant in Mayfair has already been firing imaginations among both locals and visitors who appreciate professionally prepared, home-style cooking. 

The gastronomy on offer from Manthan is grounded in Indian culinary tradition while embracing contemporary developments, which in many ways feels analogous to 21st-century Mayfair itself: a neighbourhood that effortlessly blends the best of old and new. 

It is even more befitting that the duo behind Manthan, Michelin-starred chef Rohit Ghai and his business partner Abhishake Sangwan, have their own rich history in Mayfair, having first worked together in this part of the capital a decade ago. 

Why not, then, make a reservation at our much-talked-about Indian restaurant in Mayfair, to learn for yourself what all the fuss is about when it comes to our delectable cuisine and elegant and rewarding dining experience?

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.
