Our events bring people of all walks of life together to celebrate culture and food. Whether it’s bringing together non-Muslims to celebrate Eid, non-Hindus to celebrate Diwali, or people of every possible background to tie Knots of Protection – we create shared spaces where differences are celebrated rather than judged.

New Year’s Eve at Dishoom is a fancy affair. As night falls, the evening is given over to feasting and celebration as we allow the final hours of the year to drift away with bottles of fizz, exquisite tipples and thaals laden with dishes. We call it Bombay Vintage Glam, and it's always a hoot. For those awaiting 2020 with excitement, gather friends and join us this New Year's Eve. All are warmly welcome.
