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.

As I was dining, I was asked by 4 separate waiters for a total of 6 times if everything was alright. They gave me 4 chai refills (server name was: Moali and the manager was Sarune). Suffice to say,...more
I know, I know. It's Londoners' official favourite restaurant and yet, only three stars from me? Who do I think I am to contest the opinion of the masses eh?
Well, to be honest, I just didn't find the food to be quite up to speed. The cocktails were fabulous, and so is the decoration (those mirrors!!), the staff was lovely and pudding was quite wonderful, but the rest could simply have been...more
Dishoom! Lives up to its expectation and ratings... Is it an overpriced place? YES.. Is is always crowded? YES.. Does it live up to all the hype it's created? YES.. Is it worth it? Dishoom! YES!
