JKS Restaurants Is Opening a Punjabi Spot in Mayfair

The restaurant will showcase food, drink, music and culture from the Punjab

Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi already have three Indian restaurants in their portfolio – Trishna, Gymkhana and Brigadiers – and this summer they’re adding a fourth with Ambassadors Clubhouse. Named after their maternal grandfather, a former Indian ambassador, the restaurant will be inspired by his summer house in Dalhousie (also the inspo for another Indian restaurant opening this summer) and the family’s Punjabi heritage.

The Heddon Street restaurant will boast 140 covers split across two floors, with an outdoor heated verandah and three private dining rooms. With Indian patterns, bright prints, a gold-domed bar, booth seating and counter dining inside, it’s set to look the part too.

Both classic dishes and rare regional recipes will be reflected on the Ambassadors Clubhouse menu, from kebabs cooked in the tandoor, sigri and tawa to pilaus and biryanis to curries cooked in cast-iron karahis and clay matkas. You can expect dishes like:

  • Paan Patta Chaat
  • Mooli and Dahi Kebabs
  • Nalli Chapli Kebab
  • Karahi Saufiyan Langoustines
  • Punjabi Atta Chicken
  • Haryali Rara Rabbit Keema

North Indian fruits and chaat masala spiced salts will feature on the drinks list, in a range of Punjabi Margaritas and larger celebratory serves like the Patiala Peg made with Johnnie Walker Gold. And the party vibes will continue on the lower ground floor, which, from September, will be running a DJ programme spearheaded by Punjabi cultural curator Sukhchain Sohal.
