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.

My hotel was about a block away and coming back from sightseeing, we realized we forgot to make reservations..It was a Saturday night and there was a long line out the door. For a table of two, they told us the wait was going to be an hour but we were starving so we ended up eating elsewhere. Definitely make reservations people!

We then decided to come here for breakfast Tuesday morning...more

Finally came to eat here after rave reviews - we were the first in the queue outside (arrived at 5:25) but within 5mins there were 10ppl behind us. We ended up only waiting half an hour - got to wait in the bar inside so weren't left in the cold for too long although I know of people who've waited over an hour in the queue outside.

I had the Bangha Lassi - absolutely delicious! Could be a...more

I have fallen in love with Dishoom. They might have exploded in number of stores, and it may look a little too popular indeed, but the design and decor is very beautiful - and so are the foods. It's both beautiful and delicious. Very delicious actually. I can't say anything bad actually.

The house chai was extremely rich, intense and tasty - oh, and it is bottomless too. My breakfast lassi...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
