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 food here is very good and the prices are reasonable. I was pleased with the portion size and the quality of the meats used in the food. I was disappointed in the small size of the Mango Lasi and the naan bread. One of the things a I love about naan in the UK is that it normally comes in a huge piece. The naan served here is about the size of a normal tortilla cut in half.
Amazing! Great service and food allergy friendly options (they had a special dairy free menu for my friend). Best indian food in London. They don't take reservations after 6 so I would suggest taking the last reservation (5:45) to avoid the long lines later in the evening.
The Chicken ruby was unreal.more
Dishoom serves up some of the best Indian food I've ever had. The mango lassi. My god. Maybe it was dehydration from walking around all day, but nothing was better than mango lassi at that particular moment. Smooth, creamy, dare I say... mangoey?
We tried a number of dishes, but the stand out was most certainly the grilled lamb chops. The flavor was on point - perfectly grilled and topped...more
Chicken ruby - tender and heavenly. Heavenly tender.
Paneer - too dry and too bland.
Chai tea - nicely spiced, but could be larger.
Chocolate mousse - ordinary and not worth the £5+
Pistachio kulfi - subtle and not too sweet. Like.
Garlic naan - only 1 piece per person?!?more
Dishoom is a tribute to Hindi movies made in the Mumbai (Bombay) film industry also known as Bollywood. Dishoom is actually the sound effect one heard during the fight scenes in old Bollywood films when the good 'uns and the baddies used to punch each other to oblivion (or until the very competent police finally arrived).
We were booked at Dishoom for NYE dinner by my wife's uncle and aunt....more
