Dishoom Christmas Carols

Hosting first-class get-togethers to celebrate the year’s biggest festivals is one of our very favourite things to do. Recently, we had the privilege of having hundreds of you join us to mark the joyous festival of light that is Diwali, and now, the jovial spirit of Christmas is upon us. Lights are twinkling, the scent of mulled wine is wafting through the air and many parties are afoot, and we are thrilled to invite you to another special event.

On Thursday 16th December from 6pm – 8pm, we'll be taking over Amazing Grace, a wonderful new live music venue, and renovated seventeenth century church, in London Bridge for a fantastically festive evening of hearty Christmas carolling. 

Led by a wonderful choir and accompanied by the piano, many classic carols and festive favourites will be belted out. Friends and family are all invited to come along, sing their hearts out and leave feeling warm, festive, and full of mince pies! There's room for singers of all timbres and tones, so we do hope you'll join us.

All tickets are £5 and proceeds will be donated to Magic Breakfast, one of our truly wonderful charity partners who do life-changing work providing free morning meals to children who may otherwise go hungry.

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.
