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.

We visited Dishoom in Shoreditch shortly after a few games of ping pong in nearby Bounce. The two make for a great combination!
Although the entrance to the restaurant is situated on a Shoreditch backstreet, the decorative interior and ambience makes it feel like you're stepping into a different world. The lights are dimmed, giving a dark and moody atmosphere, even during late afternoon. But...more
There's no way around it: Dishoom is a "thing".
If you go in the morning, you get a tasty "breakfast thing". If you go for lunch, you get "a delectable, cacophonous lunch thing." And if you go for dinner, you get "a stand in line for an hour in drizzle thing".
For Dishoom is well past discovered and isn't likely to return to ambiguity in any forseeable future.
So, you're gonna have to deal...more
So delicious - really really tender tikka masala. A bit spicy but the yogurt sauce really cuts it. Also, random - but the mint sauce they serve with every meal is UNBELIEVABLE.
Lots of hype, trendy, but good food to back it up.more
I came here for breakfast this morning as I was in between meetings since 8am! I was so hungry and I have always been a fan of Dishoom, so why not try their brekkie menu.
I ordered the big bombay and house chai. Woaaaaah talk about a big plate of food, a man beast portion to be exact! 4 rashers of streaky charred bacon, akuri - masala scrambled eggs, 2 shropshire pork sausages, masala baked...more
A meeting in London took me wandering past Dishoom, and with their expansion to Manchester soon, I just had to try it.
For a Thursday lunch time the place was incredibly busy - always a good sign - so I asked for a table for 1 and was luckily seated straight away.
I ordered masala prawns with a naan bread as a light lunch and they were fantastic!! I would definitely try them again.
