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.

Great food! Nice atmosphere! Friendly service.

Chicken Ruby was delicious, but the Lamb lollipops were amazing. It had wonderful flavor.

Luckily you get to order appetizers and drinks in their bar downstairs in the meantime. The lamb samosas were quite good to start out with, but only a teaser to what was ahead for our meal.

It wasn't even 5 pm and this place had a line outside already. Granted, this resto is smack dab in the middle of tourist mecca in London, so you really can't fault it for brimming with tourists. With all the accolades it has received at Yelp, Zagat and TripAdvisor to name a few, a long wait here is inevitable.

By and large, London is known for having subpar food considering its status as a world class city. But the one culinary area they universally nail it is Indian food. Dishoom is a shining example of this.

I've had my fair share of different Indian food styles. From upscale concepts to all-you-can-eat lunch buffets less than £10. Dishoom sort of does both. Elevated Indian fare that you'll pay...more
