We care deeply about your wellbeing and helping you to live your happiest, healthiest life. We know that this means different things for different people, and so at Dishoom, we tend to think of wellbeing in three ways.
Financial:– We offer some of the most generous pay in the industry (every penny of the service charge is shared between the teams at the cafés) and all Dishoom-wallas can access 50% of their salary before payday.
Mental:– Whatever support you need, all Babus (managers) are fully-trained in mental health first aid. Or if you ever need to chat with someone outside of work or home, there's a confidential advice helpline, which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Physical:– As well as the Dishoom Premier League and other sporting events, you can enjoy discounted memberships, classes and yoga sessions from the very best studios and gyms around.
We believe in developing people. We want to help you thrive and grow so that you can achieve what’s important to you. Ambitious team members are encouraged to sign up to the Dishoom University and enrol in either Babu Masterclass or Kitchen Academy.
These academies help craft skilled, knowledgeable, and happy managers.
Babu Masterclass is a 6-month management training programme for Front of House teams. You’ll develop fine skills.
Hard-working and enterprising kitchen team members become highly-skilled Junior Sous Chefs through Kitchen Academy – a most thorough and rewarding training course.

Coronavirus has blown our world apart, and all Dishooms are currently closed. It feels like the right thing for us to do.
While the restaurants are closed, we offer solace in our cookery book, which is most certainly still available to order. May it bring Dishoom, joy and plenty of Daal to your home. From all of us, with love.
