Lovers of our Breakfast Naan Rolls, we’re so very excited to share some top news with you. You may now try our so-very-new Bacon, Brie and Cranberry Naan Roll, the first of its kind!
A hugely generous portion of creamy Christmassy brie is mixed into Naan dough before being cooked in a hot tandoor and layered with Ramsay of Carluke’s smoked streaky bacon, spoonfuls of festive sweet-sour Cranberry-Chilli Chutney and fresh coriander. Expect a generous ooze of cheese, spicy-sweetness and overall extreme satisfaction. As for accompaniments:— a Bloody Mary or Chai Eggnog is optional, Santa hats are not.
For a limited time only, join us in our cafés to try this brie-lliant Yuletide breakfast special.
All-Day Festive Feasting
At Christmas, tables are left heaving with all your café favourites alongside the most mouth-watering festive specials. A whole leg of Turkey, slow-cooked until the meat is so tender it’s falling off the bone makes a fittingly decadent centrepiece. Equally delicious No-Turkey Raan will leave the hungry bellies of meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans delighted and very very full!
Our suitably lavish Christmas Feasts will be served for groups of six people or more until 24th December. Smaller groups are welcome to order our special festive dishes and tipples, alongside favourites from the all-day menu.
And to drink...
Our Daru-wallas have devised a selection of mirth-inducing festive tipples that will pair perfectly with your meal – Punches, Mimosas, Mulled Brambles, and of course, the warming comfort of House Chai. We especially recommend the all-new Premier Padmini Old-Fashioned.
In ‘64 Bombay’s Premier Auto licensed the Fiat 1100 and the iconic Padmini taxi was born. Classically half-black half-yellow, they were instantly recognisable on the busy South-Bombay streets. Often found weaving through traffic, they were loaded to the brim with families on their way to Chowpatty beach, suited businessmen headed to Nariman Point, coy college students on their first date and more.
Today, however, this heart and soul of Bombay’s roads is little seen and competes on the streets with newer, younger on-call air-conditioned fleets. Thus, in honour of this icon, and the special Bombay-Italy link, we present the Premier Padmini Negroni. Campari, vermouth and London Dry Gin mingle overnight with dark, silken Indian cocoa and sweet pears for a silky smooth finish. Now available in all our cafés, and our online Store, it’s easier to flag than the quintessential Bombay kaali-peeli.
The origins of chintz can be firmly – and humbly – traced back to 16th century India. The word ‘chintz’ is derived from the Hindi word ‘chint’, meaning spotted or splattered. These intricate designs and endless patterns were traditionally hand-printed using wooden blocks - kalamkari - and brilliantly coloured natural dyes.
We often find it too easy to hurtle through the days, in an attempt to outpace the bustling city – be it London or Bombay – which always seems to be running away like a steam-engine train on a rickety track. Occasionally, it does us good to pause for thought, to disembark the carriage and sit on the platform awhile.
How does one create a space where people can truly connect over food? How can a host make their guests feel relaxed, at ease, and suitably cared for? Since launching our all-new Dishoom Crockery, we have been pondering the answers to these questions even more than usual. We recently discussed them with Creative Director - and frequent dinner party hostess - Kirthanaa Naidu when we invited her to create a first-class tablescape in our Canary Wharf café.
Each year, the spring equinox – when day and night are equal length – marks a transition in earth’s relationship with the sun. This event, sacred to many cultures throughout history, today thrives as a new year celebration for hundreds of millions.
In Bombay, London, and throughout the South Asian diaspora, you’ll find many folks of the Zoroastrian faith (amongst others) celebrating this new year, or Navroz as we like to call it.
