SquareMeal Review of Dishoom Covent Garden

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016Now with branches in Shoreditch, King’s Cross and Soho, Dishoom is going from strength to strength as its take on the café culture of old Bombay hits the spot with hungry Londoners. Quirky vintage styling includes bright Bollywood posters and formal family portraits, while pendant lamps and monochrome tiles keep things bang up to date in the bustling dining room. Drop in any time: you’ll find bacon naan rolls and sweet chai for breakfast, ahead of a reliable all-day menu that readers recommend as a “great standby for last-minute” dining. Highlights at Dishoom include an aromatic biryani dish of chicken berry Britannia, spiced lamb keema scooped up with buttery pau buns, and the “fantastic” house black dhal. The drinks list keeps up the good work, with lassis and craft beers, plus “different and delicious” cocktails to enjoy in the basement bar if you’re waiting for a table. “Reasonable prices” and “prompt service” too.

This gem is truly authentic - from the decor to the food they absolutely nailed every detail. We had the sausage naan roll, bacon naan roll, darjeeling tea and breakfast lassi, and we felt like we were transported to India!

Oh how I absolutely adore Dishoom and the fantastic pau breakfasts. Thank you for never going out of fashion and keeping London's bellies happy.
