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.

A very nice experience of Indian food in London. This place gets my five star and no wonder why are they so busy.

I waited 2 hours in line on a Tuesday night to get into Dishoom for dinner, and I returned 14 hours later for breakfast. It was THAT good.

If you're in London, DO NOT MISS DISHOOM. You WILL regret it. To any critics of London's food scene, I say: go to Dishoom because you're wrong.

Lovely ambiance with marble tables and cute lighting, friendly servers, and an interesting mix of clientele....more

Really is as good as everyone says. Great food done in an imaginative way.

Went with my partner and although we both loved the atmosphere as it had a real buzz about the place, can't help think it's probably best going with a larger group - perhaps not ideal for couples on a date!more

Fantastic food, drinks and atmosphere.

The only dampener on the meal was the supervisor on the basement floor. She came to our table 4 times to ask how our meal was going,...more

Wife and I started our holiday in London last week and a friend recommended this place was worth a visit. I couldn't agree more. We both had no problem admitting this was the best food we had on the trip and the best indian food we've ever had!!!

We had the ruby chicken and the vegetable samosas - both were so good. Also the dishoom IPA was a great beer - the best I've which was brewed...more
