Food & Drink at Dishoom

BEGIN THE DAY with a bowl of Date & Banana Porridge or a Bacon Naan Roll. Savour the fragrance of freshly-baked pau, the rich salty taste of butter melting on a bun dipped in hot chai, the warm indulgence of Akuri, the wistfulness of a moment.

At lunch, waiters find joy in delivering trays of abundant food to your table. Roomali Roti Rolls, baked and filled to order, humble and delicious Mattar Paneer, or fresh salads. Refresh your afternoon with a drop of Chai and a small plate or two, while a thin coil of sandalwood smoke rises from gently burning incense.

Bombay breakfast, lunch, afternoon chai, dinner and late tipples.

And as evening falls, the café fills with calls of old friends meeting, chatting – a lovely and lively hubbub. To the table come smoky, melt-in-the-mouth grills, slow-cooked and aromatic biryanis, robust and spicy curries. Plates are passed around, shared, enjoyed.

Then, retreat to the Permit Room, ease yourself into a chair and order an East India Gimlet, a Viceroy's Old-fashioned, or our very good Dishoom IPA. Take a long draught. Exhale contentedly.

Our ingredients and how we choose them

WE CHOOSE THE PEOPLE we work with very carefully, especially when it comes to sourcing ingredients.

At breakfast, you’ll enjoy free-range eggs from Clarence Court, sausages from Maynard’s Farm and bacon from Ramsay of Carluke. Plant-based patrons might opt for a vegan naan roll made with sausages designed with Chef Neil Rankin.

We have signed up to the Better Chicken commitment, a new set of standards improving the welfare of chickens farmed for meat.

Our all-day menu is Halal, with our lamb and chicken coming from certified suppliers, and the animals are humanely stunned before slaughter.

Our coffee is brewed using Direct Trade beans by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee. All our bottled water is from One Water, who donate all profits to sustainable water projects around the world. And our tipples feature the Dishoom IPA, brewed by Mondo Brewing Co., served alongside first-rate beers and ciders from local breweries.

Dishoom's Bacon Naan Roll Recipe

The Bacon Naan Roll has something of a cult following; it must surely be our signature breakfast dish. The freshly cooked naan is graced with a little cream cheese, tomato-chilli jam and fresh coriander, and wrapped around a few rashers of smoked streaked bacon from top supplier Ramsay of Carluke.

The Magic of Breakfast

It’s a funny thing, hunger, isn’t it? Not the everyday hunger that most of us feel before mealtimes, but real, gnawing, empty-bellied hunger.

Next-level naans

Not long ago, a team of enterprising and energetic Dishoom chef-wallas sauntered into the kitchen and put their heads together. They were musing over how to make breakfast bigger, better, more exciting, more delicious for all.
