Dishoom pays loving homage to the old Irani cafes that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay.
The menu features breakfasts (including the "full Bombay"), lamb raan (the house special), tikka, biryani, chicken and pomegranate salad, masala prawns and great chai.

Everything you might hear about this place is true. The decor is fantastic, the bacon naan roll is to die for, the staff are incredibly friendly. Rumour has it the chai is bottomless! I've been many times and am still not tired of it.

Yelp, you really effed me over on this one. Dishoom was by far our most disappointing meal of our 10 day U.K. trip. London is known for their top notch Indian food so I was expecting this place to blow me away. Instead, it just made me homesick.

My friend was visiting me from the States and she really wanted to try out Dishoom after reading about it on a blog. Personally I despise waiting in line for anything but she was willing to go early to queue up, so I was...more
