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.

Dishoom came highly recommended by a friend. Fortunately she mentioned there could be a long wait - and there was - 1.5 hours. We arrived around 7pm on a weeknight. Was it worth it? Absolutely! Not only was it worth it but we came back a few days later for a late lunch and a shorter 40 minute wait.

There was amazing and their specialty cocktails, all of which we tried, were unbelievable....more

A much different indian experience ... fancy interior, fancy exterior and fancy location. The food was fantastic (Chicken Ruby was so incredibly tasty) and the desert was outstanding.

Waiting staff is super friendly and provides an amazing experience. Is it worth the 90 minute wait in comparison to other Indian restaurants...not sure but if you can get in without the long wait, it is most...more

Great food. Wonderful interiors and ambience. Lovely cocktails and good crowd. What's not to like?

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
