About

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.

Came to this place with a couple friends for dinner. They had us sampling chai tea and lemonade while we were waiting in line. The line moved pretty quick and before we know it we were seated. We waited about 45mins which wasn't bad. We ordered 4 entrees for the 4 of us. We also ordered 2 sides which were bowl of greens and basmati rice. All dishes were amazing and it was an awesome... more

This straight reminded me of some of the best indian food i tasted back in India. We went on a Sunday night and were in line for around 30 mins before they invited us in the bar area, followed by a proper table in the dining area in around 20 mins (total 50 mins)! We did not mind the wait.

At the bar, we ordered Kala Khatta (non alcoholic drink, mixed with flavorful spices, traditional to... more

Very spacious and intricate interior design all around, Dishoom is a "fancier" and higher-end Indian restaurant chain in London. I've been here only once but enjoyed my meal very much and would definitely come back again.

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

3) Repeat

We arrived around 11:15, 30 minutes before the end of breakfast and was seated within 5 minutes. The place was packed. Loud, casual ambiance with both table and booth seating. Looking around, you can see the naan being made fresh behind the counter.

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