This new restaurant at Khan Market is a dramatic transformation of culinary scenes

Urban bistro by day, gastro bar by night, Klap at Khan Market hopes to contribute a dramatic transformation in the local culinary scene, and ignite a new love for life.

The restaurant offers 2 spacious floors and a fabulous terrace in Khan Market - itself one of the city’s iconic cultural melting pots, that brings together industrialists, intellectuals, and artists alike.

Klap is the brainchild of 3 enterprising friends: Chef Gurmehar Sethi, Alekh Vardhan, and Navdeep Singh Sethi.


“Can I give you a meal in a single bite? This thought is the constant source of inspiration for me to discover food grammar that I can play with,” said Chef Gurmeher Sethi who seek to bring together unpredictable ingredients and serendipitous flavours, served up with panache in a World Cuisine Tapas Bar.

Chef Gurmeher Sethi orchestrates a multi talented team and enthralls with a refreshing signature style, across British, Italian, French, Indian, Mexican, Thai,  Japanese, and Korean cuisines.


Armed with qualifications from Les Roches Switzerland and Le Cordon Bleu London, Chef Sethi acquired developmental work experience at the Oberoi, New Delhi, and Le Cordon Bleu, Bangkok. He went on to work in some of the finest world kitchens, namely, Nobu;  Atlantis; The Palm, Dubai; Mayfair Hotel, London; Banyan Tree Resort, Phuket; and Leela Palace Kempinski, New Delhi and Udaipur. Klap is his second venture after Ziu, in Delhi NCR and the UAE.

At Klap, Chef Gurmeher Sethi’s food is light, and almost ‘palate cleansing’ in its freshness. At the same time, it’s filling, packing a punch in the layer-by-layer element of flavour surprises. ‘Two fingers, one bite,’ is the style.

A party for ‘one’, a party for ‘all’


The restaurant’s layout encourages a generous dose of sunlight, bringing to mind a ‘family home villa’ in Italy. Terrazzo (Italian for terrace) flooring seems to be inspired by that aesthetic, but it’s also a charming ode to the fact that terrazzo is an all too familiar flooring style in Indian homes. Textured hand-plastered walls, mixed-material furniture, and faux leather upholstery in pop colours add to the casual, homely vibe, but with an air of approachable luxury.

Table arrangements encourage comfortable and intimate sharing - of everything from quick bites to hearty supper bowls. As the sun sets, they seem to undergo a magical transformation, with the allure of secret speakeasies, tapas bars, and izakayas - all global variations of social ‘watering holes.’ This 2-storied ‘terrazzo land’ is connected by a contemporary-aesthetic staircase. There are also 2 bars, and Klap is amongst the first in the city to offer cocktails on tap. Enjoy limited edition bar menus - which include mocktails, of course!

Klap’s terrace is great for savouring the vibrant green frontage, including a ‘heritage peepal tree,’ - a cherished sight in the concrete jungle. The restaurant also has a mini garden of microgreens, edible flowers, and peppers - you may spot or taste some of them in your food and drinks.


“I’m a numbers person, but I’m putting an additional spin on it at Klap. With knowledge and qualifications in Nutrition, and a knack for customising just the right calories-evaluation, I wish to give the culinary experience an enlightening upper-hand,” added Navdeep Sethi.
