The staffers are friendly, the prices are low and the food is first-class. I had one of my most enjoyable meals of the year here. Dishoom well encapsulates the current trend for quality without fuss.

Ben McCormack

Squaremeal

Dishoom was a game-changer: stylish, affordable and with a defiantly youthful outlook that was more focused on how Londoners wanted to eat in the 21st-century than outdated British attitudes to both Indian cuisine and India itself.

Tom Parker-Bowles

Olive Magazine

There was a freshness, vibrancy and zing to pretty much everything we ate. We left with a spring in our step, rather than the usually post-curry shuffle.

Haley Forest

Thrillist

London holds its breath and wonders how long the dream that is Dishoom can last. And yet it would appear there is no slowing them down… Consistent, mind-blowing food with some of the nicest staff you’ll find anywhere and a vibe that is pretty close to perfect.

The Nudge

Dishoom, has become something of a darling of London’s restaurant scene. No other place seems to have captured the public imagination quite like it.

AA Gill

Sunday Times Style

We drank very good chai, the spiced milky sweet tea that is India’s national drink. The naan rolls were all excellent: sausage with chilli, tomato jam and cream cheese is an unimpeachable breakfast with sweet tea, as is two runny eggs in a spiced roll.

Zoe Williams

The Telegraph

Gorgeously kitsch, fast-paced and with delicious Indian-fusion snacks – what’s not to like about this Bombay-style café.

A thing of loveliness….this is the breakfast bacon naan from Dishoom and it is bloody GAWJUSS. My new favourite breakfast. With a drink, a fiver.

Saptaparshi Ray

Outlook India

A stunningly original menu that cries havoc and releases the dogs of flavour to cause mayhem among typical fare of both Indian and British-Asian dishes: from desi takes on the bacon sandwich to chicken berry Britannia, a twist on an already mish-mashed classic, and the Kejriwal, a spicy, eggy take on cheese on toast, a joyful aberration.

Dishoom is such a fun, modern interpretation of an Indian restaurant that waiting is no great chore…

Breakfast of a sausage naan roll with chilli jam would be a champion way to begin the day. Biff! Bang! Wow!

CNN Mumbai

Dishoom revives Bombay cafe culture… Bombay’s old Irani cafes are dying a slow death, and the only people doing anything about it are in London. Painstaking attention to detail and cultural referencing… nothing is overlooked.

Maunika Gowardhan

Red magazine

I’ve seen many Indian restaurants come and go, but Dishoom was the first one that really got me excited. Coming here always transports me back to my childhood. Every morsel reminds me of eating my way around the streets of Mumbai… this place is helping to preserve a tradition that is rapidly dying out.
