I have often been to Dishoom for lunch as it offers good Indian (not Anglo-Indian) food at a sensible price, and is a decent venue for client meetings. However, I recently discovered that they have decided not to take walk-in custom and will turn you away without a reservation, even if the restaurant is half empty. Coming for a Sunday lunch with my wife, I was told in a particularly dismissive and rude way, that I could not be seated without a reservation for at least two hours, even though the restaurant was half empty. Interestingly as I walked by an hour later it was still half empty! I complained to management who confirmed this policy and seemed disinterested about the rudeness of their staff. So be warned…no reservation, no service.
One to avoid in my opinion. if you are in London you just don't need to put up with this!
