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.

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.

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