An all-new café, coming soon

With greatest delight, we are beyond excited to share that in on 30th November we’ll be opening the doors to the brand-new, most fine and gorgeous Dishoom Canary Wharf!

Our newest home, nestled in a little corner of Wood Wharf, will bring to life the glittering-shimmering, big-business, metropolitan scene of ‘70s Bombay. When fortunes were made and lost, swindles plotted and uncovered, and dreams were dreamed and broken.

For now, our Chef-wallas are busying themselves cooking up new dishes; the Daru-wallas are inventing (and tasting!) merrymaking drinks; and design, music and artwork are coming together to tell all manner of stories. It's going to be brilliant (perhaps the best yet!), and we can't wait to welcome new patrons and old friends for everything from breakfast and mid-morning chai to lunch, afternoon tipples, evening feasts and late-night snacks. To join us before we officially open our doors, and make best use of 50% off all food, do come along to our soft launch.

Our soft launch will run until 3pm on Tuesday 29th November. Bookings are now full but walk-ins are welcomed warmly. Simply drop by at any time, we're so looking forward to seeing you.

In the meantime, we suggest you lose yourself in the first chapter of our newest founding myth...

Thursday 12th April – 1973, BOMBAY

"It is almost light outside. It must be about six. He’s been awake half the night trying to figure out what to do. Lying on his bed, he stares through the rotating blades of the ceiling fan which only serve to stir the close warm air of his room. He needs to think – he’s running out of time. But his eyes feel salted and his head throbs." Continue reading Chapter One and watch the trailer here...

A Little Magic

“Who wants to see some magic?” Chef Arun calls out. He flings the rolled out dough into the air, sending it soaring above the counter. It spins and twists, a graceful dancer in the air. The children watch its arc, their eyes wide with wonder, until it lands gently back in the chef's hands. The children shriek in delight.

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.
