We love celebrating Bombay's big festivals. We've run a halal street food event in a Shoreditch warehouse for Eid, we've celebrated Diwali with Qawalli and for the past few years we've brought Christmas carols to King's Cross. Combining food and culture to bring people together is very much at the heart of what we do – and honestly, we just love nothing more than a big, happy, joy-filled bash!
At our carolling party, friends and family are all invited to come along, sing their hearts out and leave feeling as festive as whisky-laden mawa cake. Lead by the masterly Tommy Antonio, many festive tunes are belted out while bellies are filled with Mince Pies and House Chai. There's room for singers of all timbres and tones, so we hope to see you next year for another super evening!
In the days and weeks before Diwali, the excitement and gaiety flickers through Bombay like electricity. It is with that same sense of excitement that we announce we can once again bring friends and family together for a first-class partee. With almost two years since our last get-together, it brings unsurpassed joy to be able to finally share the particulars of our 2021 Diwali celebrations.
The Dishoom Home Feast allows you to bring family and friends together at home over a generous selection of our most-loved dishes. This all-new kit provides welcome shortcuts to favourite Dishoom dishes – you’ll receive an ensemble cast of café classics, all suitable for dishing up and sharing with family and friends.
Last year, to celebrate the opening of Dishoom Birmingham, we launched an exciting writing competition with our good friends at Birmingham Stories, part of the National Literacy Trust. Entrants were tasked with writing a story inspired by the café’s founding myth: the story of Roda Irani.
The Dishoom Bacon Naan Roll has something of a cult following; it must surely be our signature breakfast dish. Try it at home with our signature recipe.
