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 Rasheed, Vibs Bhatia and Vikaash, Alisha 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!
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.
We have arrived at a very sad, but inevitable and clear choice. As of now, all Dishooms are now closed to diners.
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.
