Bibi Restaurant

The latest venue from the team behind Michelin-starred Gymkhana is promising to showcase food influenced by the roadside diners of India. Peter Gray previews Bibi restaurant.

Indian comfort food is the name of the game at chef Chet Sharma’s new Mayfair eaterie, Bibi restaurant. Sharma cut his teeth at such acclaimed venues as The Ledbury, L’Enclume and Gymkhana, and the acclaimed chef has sought inspiration from the roadside diners of his native India for his new venue, which takes its name from the affectionate nickname Indian adults use for their grandmothers.

Bibi will take up residence in a Georgian townhouse on Audley Street in September. Formerly home to the French coffee shop Truc Vert, the building is currently being transformed ahead of the opening, with Sharma promising that the venue will celebrate the colourful and distinctive Rajasthani architecture of his childhood.

Signature dishes at the venue are expected to include Raw Beef Pepper Fry, with dry-aged Dexter top round with a coconut ash dosa and ginger pickle; Gondhoraj Scallop with scallop roe chaat masala and jalapeño and Lobster Claw Vada.

The cocktail menu looks equally good with the tequila based Ice Gola (tequila, calamansi, apple marigold & chaat masala) and the Champagne Lassi.

Bibi Restaurant will open at 42 North Audley Street, Mayfair, London W1K 6ZR on the 16th of September 2021. More information about the venue can be found here.
