Our Eid party 2018

Thanks to everyone that joined us

For us and many of our team members, Eid is a really happy, special day; a day where people come together with friends and family and celebrate joyfully with food  – lots and lots of food!

In this spirit, on 19th June people from all cultures, faiths and persuasions joined in our Eid celebration alongside our good friends at Dinerama. Throughout the evening we enjoyed live performances and spoken word from top talents within the Islamic community, mehndi, mouth-watering (halal) street food and of course, a massive Dishoom Biryani.

It was an evening of openness, tolerance and togetherness, where Muslims and non-Muslims came together and celebrated with joyful abandon. It was a super cool evening. One we’ll never forget.

KIND WORDS FROM KIND PEOPLE

“Super cute Eid celebration event and a reminder of why London is the coolest city.”

Degs of Biryani; ice cream everywhere and the odd vegetable too (okra, fried); an easy, inclusive space where old, young and even younger came together in picture-perfect moments; spoken word; a battalion of face-painted children walking around; mehndi; and wave-upon-wave of Qawwali by Chand Ali Khaan – under the stars, praising the heavens. Glorious. Thank you Dishoom, you mad, thoughtful geniuses, you.”

“A biggest thank you to @Dishoom for hosting this stunning evening celebrating culture and diversity, and thank you to all the special guests for your divine love and support. What an honour – the night was electric. Can’t wait for the next one.”

Once again, we’d like to say a huge thanks to our awesome performers; Chand Ali Khan and his Qawwali group; Fahad Khalid; DJ Sharnita; Sukina Douglas; Jamal Mehmood; Asma Elbadawi; Zia Ahmed and Lamyaa Hanchaoui. You’re true talents.

We captured the magical evening to share with all those that couldn’t make it. And if you were there… spot yourself.
