The iconic Gaylord experience!

Walking into Gaylord I was transported to a Mumbai I find today only in glimpses. With the grand golden polished chairs, smell of bread floating in the air, and interiors that ooze out elegance, Gaylord doesn’t feature in the to-do lists of tourists from across the world for nothing.

The restaurant, located in the heart of Churchgate, is celebrating it's 62nd anniversary this month. It was started in 1956 by Pishori Lal Lamba and Igbal Ghai, food entrepreneurs from Delhi. A.N Malhotra, the C.E.O, later joined them in business. “People think running a restaurant is an easy business, but in actuality, it is not. We have managed 60 years, and will continue the business for quite some time to come.” Malhotra says, his eyes gleaming with pride as he talks about this eatery-cum-restaurant that he has spent 62 years with.

The iconic bakery features the likes of gulab jamun cheesecake, apple pie, and bread pudding that melts in the mouth. The self-serve service for the bakery, complete with trays kept for customers to use, brings with it an irreplaceable old world charm.

A little known fact about this quaint restaurant is from its early days when Gaylord had a dance floor that would always be brimming with youngsters and elders alike. “There was an Italian band that would play for the crowd thrice a day, who absolutely loved it and couldn’t stay away from the dance floor. It was a one-of-a-kind, enthralling experience indeed,” Malhotra said.
