"Completely incredible food and service"; "reminds me of Mumbai"; "one of my favourite pop-in places" – readers simply can't get enough of Dishoom and its "wonder colonial decor". Whether it's a breakfast of bacon naans and chilli
jam (with bottomless chai tea during the week)
or dinner with "creative" Asian-themed cocktails such as the Bollybellini, this branch of the four-strong group delivers in spades. We're hooked on the keema pau (minced spiced lamb in a buttered bun) and the signature black dhal, but other items are well worth a punt – including the mahi (fish) tikka, the fried batura bread with chickpeas or the famous chicken berry Britannia (a biryani riff with cranberries), with kulfi on a stick to finish. The only problem is getting a table in the first place: bookings are only taken for groups of six or more, otherwise you need to queue. Even so, this is a "must-visit".
Foodies swear by this one dish, serving the signature almighty hot and tasty bacon nan at Dishoom, a tradition old Bombay cafe. I’ve already visited the Dishoom Covent Garden branch and headed up to the one in Shoreditch. Walking along Shoreditch High Street trying to get in through the locked doors, a small sign tells you the entrance is by the side road of Boundary Street.Dishoom Shoreditch is split into two buildings and the side I was sent to was smaller, intimate and casual. Setting up my mini office for the morning, the mission was try out this bacon nan. Each one of these are freshly baked, made by...

A few years ago if diners wanted some authentic Indian house chai coupled with Pau Bhaji reminiscent of Chowpatty Beach then there was only one place to go: Dishoom in Covent Garden.However, after years of braving the tourists dwelling by Leicester Square Station and waiting in line for a table inside what had become a coveted dining location, Dishoom multiplied, not once but twice over opening restaurants in Shoreditch and then King’s Cross. Yet significantly Dishoom didn’t duplicate in a chain restaurant fashion, instead they grew with style and added a distinctive edge to each of their locations.Dishoom...

It wasn’t any of the 159 Michelin-starred restaurants in the UK that ranked top of readers’ favourite eats, it was an unassuming chain called Dishoom. Styled after Iranian-style cafes in Mumbai, now with 3 branches in London, this is one of those places you can always rely upon. And more importantly, somewhere you can all agree on when you’re trying to find a spot to go with friends.The Kings Cross venue is their newest (Opened in Nov 2014) and it’s huge! Far bigger than their original Covent Garden outpost and their Shoreditch spot, this is cavernous...

Dishoom has been at the top of my ‘want-to-go’ list for AGES having heard only rave reviews from friends, but it always got side-lined as they don’t take reservations for dinner, which I always find a bit tricky! But the time had come. So Michael and I met Sophie and Simon at Dishoom, Shoreditch at 7pm on a Friday night. We had been warned about the queue, but we were committed to the long haul, all-in for the end game...

Dishoom, literally a stones’ throw away from my office in Shoreditch, had long since been a haunt of ours for after work drinks. Somehow over the last year or so, our post-office sessions had taken us to a pub down the road, but I think that had more to do with the arrival of new faces, replacing our favourites who went on to open the new Kings Cross site or moved on to new adventures.

I couldn’t not do anything on my actual birthday though, could I? So I headed to Dishoom in Shoreditch for dinner with a couple of friends. I have heard so many great things about Dishoom, and after seeing the new site open in Kings Cross I put it to the top of my list. Dishoom is an all-day Indian street menu in a Bombay-style cafe with cool vintage décor, marble tables and a veranda.I wanted somewhere informal that still had a bit of a buzz on a Monday night, and I walked into such a vibrant place! It was packed at 6:30pm, on a Monday. The laid back cafe style was perfect and after a cocktail in the bar...

What better to warm up on a cold day than some Indian comfort food? I first visited Dishoom a couple of summers ago and loved the Indian-Persian style food. Two Sunday's in a row were spend having lunch at the Kings Cross branch for Sophie's birthday and the Shoreditch branch with my parents. You can read about breakfast at the Shoreditch Dishoom here...

Dishoom is an Indian street-style caf&, located in Shoreditch. Although we suppose it is technically not, Dishoom would more appropriately be described as a restaurant. Dishoom does offer casual dining, however they have really mastered the interior of space, especially the verandah area. Forget matching tables and chairs, think bohemian comfort, with cosy places to sit and enjoy great food.
