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.

Not one but two clueless and borderline rude servers ruined my first and only Dishoom experience for me. Enduring attitude from one was enough to put me off from returning; a second that repeatedly ignored me when I asked for directions to the bathroom sealed the deal.
I realise the majority...more
I looove a good Indian place and when my friend told me that London is the place to go for the best Indian restaurant, I was all down for it. This place gets extremely packed and will get a crazy lane if you go too late, so we made sure to get there by 5:30pm and got seated quickly.
I think we pretty much ordered the whole menu since it was like a tapas style where the dishes come out pretty...more
I want to tell the owners of Dishoom to open a branch in NYC and I'll gladly run it for them!
We've been here 5 times over the course of two years and love the authentic, Bombay street food-style small plates done just right.
5 star dishes on the menu:
-- Vegetarian (potato + peas filling) or the lamb kheema samosas - both are excellent and a safe bet.
-- Okra Fries: crispy, savory, yummy....more
