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.

Had to wait outside but wasn't too bad and they hand you chai or mint tea while you wait. Probably waited 30 mins for a table for 4 on a Wednesday evening.

For apps we shared be okra which was my favorite dish of the meal, shrimp, and bau bahji. Mains we had a chicken tikka masala type curry (was called something else but was similar to this) and a South Indian shrimp curry. Neither of these... more

I LOVED this place. I actually came here the day after going to The Cinnamon Club and was shocked that we got double the food for half the amount at Dishoom. Also, the quality was much better here!

First of all, they have a great waiting system. They gave us a remote that buzzes when your table is ready. When it buzzed, we went straight downstairs. I'm not sure what they use their upstairs... more

Can't go wrong eating at Dishoom.

Hot spot for locals and tourists alike.

We went on a Tuesday around 6pm, waiting an hour or so for a table, had a drink in their bar while waiting.

Cool decor.

The veggie samosas were delicious.

Cheese paneer sooo good.

Garlic and cheese Naan, tasty!

Would def return. more

This is hands down one of the best Indian meals I've ever had. I knew very little about this place other than that more than one person recommended it on Facebook. It was only later that I'd notice that Ruggy and other Yelp dignitaries had experienced the majesty of this modern Indian tapas hangout slinging traditional street flavors.

Being jetlagged and coming here at 4:30 pm probably helped... more
