Repackaging the vibrant Bombay café scene for hip Londoners, Dishoom is a lively all-day pit stop with a varied menu roaming from toasted bun maska and chai for breakfast to lunchtime paneer rolls, plus assorted grills, biryanis and curries. Recent highlights have included buttery pau bhaji (mashed vegetables), juicy masala prawns and the deliciously creamy black dhal – not forgetting ‘to die for’ lassis. Vintage Bollywood kitsch adorns the bright monochrome dining room and clued-up staff generally keep the party swinging – although service can wobble at peak times. Fans think the buzz and authentic snacks ‘make you feel like you’re in Bombay’, while doubters reckon Dishoom is a ‘gimmick’ that doesn’t live up to its hype. But on balance, most diners conclude that this quirky modern take on Indian street food ‘definitely hits the spot’ – and we agree.
