Let the festive feasting commence

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 Dishoom Canary Wharf story – Chapter Three

The phone keeps ringing shrilly through the flat. Nauzer holds his head in his hands, palms clamped over his ears. “Beta, the phone!” He forgot his mother would still be here. He can’t have her answering in case it is Devia. He runs into the corridor to pick it up. It stops just before he can reach it. Breathless, he looks up and sees his mother in the kitchen. 

Dishoom Canary Wharf – now officially OPEN!

Tucked away in a lovely corner of Wood Wharf, Dishoom Canary Wharf is now officially open and ready to welcome you all. The marble-top bar is ready to hold your drink, the textured, patterned (and extremely comforting) chairs are waiting to be kept warm and the hand-painted mural and carefully curated art – from Bombay and beyond – are waiting to be part of your conversations. 

Dishoom's Chicken Berry Britannia Biryani Recipe

This chicken biryani is our homage to Britannia’s chicken berry pulao, using cranberries in place of the more authentic Persian barberries, which are tricky to find. (Despite much cajoling, Mr Kohinoor has never shared his wife’s famous recipe.) It is prepared in the kacchi style, originating from Hyderabad, in which marinated raw meat goes into the pot, to be cooked at the same time as the rice.

Dishoom's Taj Ballroom Toddy Recipe

No party is complete without some delectable pours to toast the host with the most. For the crafty amongst us, bring out the shakers and strainers and the channel knife and pour your energy into building our festive concoction – The Taj Ballroom Toddy. A warming tipple inspired by The Taj Mahal Palace hotel, where Bombay’s jazz age was born.
