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.

I'm not a huge Indian food fan but thought I'd trust the perpetual line outside of this place and I'm so glad I did. Amazing food and service and the price point was pretty good too.

-Okra Fries


-Black Daal (Amazing curry)

-Gunpowder Potatoes

-Lamb Roti (Spicy, good but not great)

-Bowl of Greens

-Far Far

Expect a long wait (we were quoted an hour which is...more

One of the best Indian restaurants in London (maybe one of the Indian restaurants in the world), and worth the wait! Don't come here unless you're willing to wait in line for 45-90 minutes, but on the plus side, they have space heaters outside to keep you warm, give you complementary chai, and they have free WiFi. So it could definitely be worse. I came here on a Friday night and waited in...more

Pricing seems very fair, and the quality is wonderful. They are also...more

1. Service- very attentive and friendly. Both times I came here, I had two different servers, and they were both very professional. They were very welcoming and they made sure you had everything you needed. It's A-La-Carte, so wait to be seated, order and pay at the table.

2. Price- this place is affordable, and not expensive at all. For two people, you'll pay about £30, but that depends on...more
