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.

Visited Dishoom in its very centrally placed location before a matinee performance of Miss Saigon.

We ordered the Chicken Ruby, Pau Bhaji, House Black Daal, Roomali Roti, Basmati Rice, Garlic Naan and Matter Paneer. It was, as you might suspect, a lot for a party of three. But everything was wonderful, so other than portion control I really had no issue with our very large order.

A big line of people formed outside around lunch time....more

Came here for breakfast and had a great time. The decor of the place is great and has a unique mix of old school dining mixed in with new elements. We had one of the egg dishes, bacon naan and the masala beans. The egg dish was unique, hearty and cheap. Adding the masala beans as a side was a good decision and it paired well. The bacon naan was good but it didn't wow me as the other two...more

Long overdue review from November but... AAH! They don't mess with Indian food in London!! And when they say the English have the queue down pat they aren't kidding! We arrived to a line and had a lovely conversation with the hostess at the door. We were led inside and invited to wait at the bar, which was nice cause it was quite cold outside. We were seated shortly after!

We ordered a good...more

My husband and I came here for dinner on a recent trip to the UK. We arrived around 5:30 PM and had to wait over an hour and a half to get in... But it was totally worth it.

It was a cold and blustery day (don't worry, this isn't the start of a Gothic romance), and the waitstaff kindly provided mini cups of steaming hot chai and mint tea to warm us while we waited. Once we got in, my husband...more
