Dishoom Diwali Festival

We have always loved sharing the magic of Diwali with our friends and families.

On Saturday 23rd October we honoured the special occasion of Diwali with an atmospheric twilight celebration under the West Handyside Canopy in King’s Cross. There was extremely cool live music (huge thanks to Sabiyha RasheedVibs Bhatia and VikaashAlisha Kadir and headliner Shammi Pithia and his band), fantastic street food and marvellous entertainment for visitors of all ages.

We captured the magical afternoon to share with all those that couldn’t make it. And if you were there… spot yourself!

Haleem – a slow-cooked delicacy

I love to truly understand and appreciate the origins of a dish, and learn how communities have adapted a recipe over time to make that dish unique to them.

Closing our doors to coronavirus

We have arrived at a very sad, but inevitable and clear choice. As of now, all Dishooms are now closed to diners.

Our reopening news

These past months have brought strangeness and uncertainty for so many of us. Since we shut the doors of our restaurants in March, we haven’t felt like ourselves at all. The very point of Dishoom is to welcome you through our doors and to serve you the most delicious food and drink we can summon up in the warmest possible way.

Goodbye 2019. Hello 2020.

These are the last few days, the dregs of 2019. It’s my habit to sit here in the Permit Room at this time. I am the be-stubbled and dishevelled regular, cherishing his precious drink at the end of the bar. Weary, I sit here pondering the year, attempting to figure out what it was trying to teach me. What wisdom can I glean from it?
