Most of the tables in our restaurants are kept unreserved so we can accommodate anyone who visits us – you may have to wait, depending on what time of day you visit, but we’ll be able to find you a table.

If there’s a wait when you arrive, we have a cocktail bar where you can have a tipple until your table’s ready. (At very busy times – 6.30-9.30pm – there may be a queue to get into the bar.)

Breakfast and Lunch

We take reservations for groups of any size for breakfast and lunch.


For dinner (after 5.45pm) we only take reservations for groups of 6 or more. Smaller groups are always welcome to walk in.


We don’t take any reservations on the Verandah at Dishoom Shoreditch or on the outdoor tables at Dishoom Covent Garden.


We’ll try our best to accommodate any requests made in the booking notes, but unfortunately we can’t guarantee it. Please email if you want to discuss something specific.

Larger Groups

If you’re planning to bring a group of 12 or more people, please contact our reservations-wallas by emailing


Finally, please note that we can only hold your reservation for 15 minutes. Sorry.
