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.

The hype is real. There was an hour long wait when we arrived at 8:30 and continued to be the case when we left at 10:30. Once you do finally score a table, the food comes out quickly after ordering, but you can also while away the time sipping on their many delicious libation offerings.
The food is so good! Perfectly seasoned, spiced and cooked. We didn't have one bad bite. My life was...more
Dishoom was our first stop in London for dinner and well worth the wait. With 700+ reviews already here, I'll give you a rundown of what stood out to me most.
1) The line outside snaked around and around, but they sweetened the experience with hot chai tea and sherry. Once you get inside, you *may* think your wait is over but instead, you're transported downstairs to the bar area. We had...more
Before I finally got to visit Dishoom, I always wondered "what's the fuss about?"
I now understand aforementioned fuss.

GET THE BREAKFAST NA'AN. So simple, yet revolutionary and absolutely brilliant.
TRY THE COFFEE. It's no costa crap.
