Dishoom is a new group of slick Bombay/ Irani cafes which are highly stylised with all things Indian and quirky e.g. metal cups to drink water, Indian medicaments on display, old black and white Indian family photos. The menu reads like a mix of authentic Indian favourites fused with British influences, eg bacon nan. Not dissimilar to 2nd generation Indians living in the U.K. The food is very reasonably priced, we ate like queens for £20/head. Highlights include hot sweet chai, spicy lamb chops sprinkled with pomegranate jewels, a chargrilled light chicken tikka, bacon nan and spicy chip butties. Perfect for a relaxed lunch with girlfriends post Covent Garden shopping or for a local chilled business lunch. The newer branch in Shoreditch is huge and has outdoor space and is full of trendy young creatives as well as smart Indian locals (always a testament to the authenticity of the food). This place aint no Amaya but it definitely works for a cheaper alternative.
