  • Visitor Information

Dishoom pays loving homage to 1930s Bombay, when Iranian immigrants crossed the Indian ocean, setting up Irani cafes providing a cheap snack, a meal, or just a cup of chai. The menu refers to specific dishes from those Irani cafes and even the music - Mohammed Rafi plays one track, followed by Django Reinhardt - is chosen carefully to evoke Bombay during this time. The marble tables, bentwood chairs, ceiling fans, ageing mirrors and art deco clock (a close replica of the one in Victoria Terminus - Bombay's St. Pancras) are the backdrop for dishes like Keema Pau (spiced minced lamb and peas with a toasted, buttered pau bun), Paneer Tikka and Gunpowder Potatoes with brown skins, smoky-grilled, broken apart, tossed with butter, crushed aromatic seeds and green herbs. There are wonderfully eccentric design touches and signs of faded glamour - the rules by the door are a reference to the rules at Cafe Bastani, and the ladies' loo have life size pictures of the champion Parsi body builders from 1960. Dishoom started out in Covent Garden and now there are four restaurants across the city: Dishoom Shoreditch, Kings Cross, and in October 2015 Dishoom Carnaby made a welcome addition to the group.
