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.

All dishes were amazing and it was an awesome... more

However, I personally prefer the more "hole in the wall" Indian restaurants located in Brick Lane. Nonetheless, Dishoom marks as a great place to dine for delicious food. I... more
My bf and I were touring London for 4 days and stumbled on this place on the first night. It was a Thursday and the line at 5PM was literally wrapped around the street. It was the longest line we'd ever seen, but it sure stirred some interest and we made a reservation for that weekend! From what we've heard from friends, it's not easy to get a reservation a few days away so we were pretty... more
Things to do:
1) Order the House Chai
2) Order the Bacon Naan

For drinks we ordered the house chai and mint tea. The chai was the best... more
