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.

Finally came to eat here after rave reviews - we were the first in the queue outside (arrived at 5:25) but within 5mins there were 10ppl behind us. We ended up only waiting half an hour - got to wait in the bar inside so weren't left in the cold for too long although I know of people who've waited over an hour in the queue outside.

I had the Bangha Lassi - absolutely delicious! Could be a...more

I understand some folks may think this place is a bit too polished or caters too much for the Anglo-Saxon pallet, but who cares if it's freakin' great? On a recent business trip to London I visited this place twice and would be going there for lunch right now if I wasn't 5,000 miles away. =(

The Dishoom Chicken Tika was superb in both its tenderness and spiciness. If you like Chicken Tikka...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

The house chai was extremely rich, intense and tasty - oh, and it is bottomless too. My breakfast lassi...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
