Located in the landmark St Martin’s Courtyard development, Dishoom is an unexpected and fresh take on café culture. Its heritage borrows from the cafés, street grills and food stalls of Bombay – such as Britannia Café, Bademiya and Chowpatty Beach. Its setting is inspired by the Irani cafés of old but is very much modern-day London. And just as in Bombay, the informal, bustling and buzzing atmosphere welcomes all.

"You HAVE to eat Indian food while you're in London!" is what I heard over and over again before our trip. We only spent two days in London, but Dishoom was definitely my favorite meal while we were there.

We got in line around 10pm on a Saturday night and were told the wait would be over an hour. Several people in line decided to jump ship upon hearing this....DON'T BE THOSE PEOPLE! We...more

The fried okra (5/5) - incredibly tasty

The chicken curry (4.5/5) - one of the best curries I've ever had. You could skip it if you want something more interesting as it's more like the best rendition of a...more

I ate at Dishoom my first night in London. For some reason I'd been under the impression food in the UK wouldn't be very good, but Dishoom took that notion and threw it out the window.

Firstly: don't be scared by the line. It moves quickly, and according to my London friend who has come here before, they grossly overestimate the time you'll spend queuing up to get in to the restaurant. Plus,...more

When we arrived we saw a long line. It was almost like the lines you see to get into a bar/nightclub. I had been warned...more

Even though we were hungry, cold, and wet after waiting 30 minutes outside to eat Dishoom, I was still impressed with their Indian food. At the bar we ordered the lamb samosas, which were absolutely amazing and tasted exactly like the ones grandmother makes. I loved how the skin was crispy, thin filo and the minced lamb inside was flavorful.

Once we got a table, we ordered the House Black...more
