Best gifts, warm smiles and hot chai. Should you find yourself amidst the very tall buildings of Canary Wharf between 6th – 8th December, then do come find us at our limited-edition Dishoom Canary Wharf pop-up.

Popping up for three days only from 7:30am until 8pm at the Canary Wharf shopping centre, we recommend a little stop by. Our shelves will be stacked with gifts (some new and never-before seen) and to fuel your shopping: Yuletide tunes, delicious House Chai, crunchy Khichia & Chundo and come 4pm, liberal pours of the Permit Room Old-Fashioned or Premier Padmini Negroni.

When:– Tuesday 6th December until Thursday 8th December from 7.30am until 8pm daily

Tickets:– No booking is required, simply pop by. In the meantime, be sure to peruse our gifting range here.


You are all warmly welcome to join us for an evening of festive Christmas Carolling at The Lawn Club, Monday 12th December. Expect a wonderful evening filled with jovial singing led by the Dishoom Rolling Tones whilst enjoying mince pies and House Chai. All ticket sales will be donated to Wood Street Mission, a children's charity who have been supporting families living in Manchester and Salford for over 150 years.

We're partnering with the wonderful Edinburgh-based charity Social Bite to host an evening of Carols, led by the talented Edinburgh City Singers opposite our café in the beautiful St Andrew Square. Many classic carols and festive favourites will be belted out so do come along for a fantastically-festive singalong.

We've bagged ourselves a spot just outside our café in Chamberlain Square to host a seasonal soiree. The masterly Festive Foursome (an awesome vocal quartet from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire)  will lead the crowd in a hearty singsong whilst you fill your bellies with Mince Pies and Dishoom Chai.

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.
