For us and many of our team members, Eid is a really happy, special day; a day where people come together with friends and family and celebrate joyfully with food – lots and lots of food!
In this spirit, we bring together people from all cultures, faiths and persuasions at our Eid celebrations, alongside our good friends at Dinerama. Throughout the evening we enjoy live performances and spoken word from top talents within the Islamic community, mehndi, mouth-watering (halal) street food and of course, a massive Dishoom Biryani.
It's always an evening of openness, tolerance and togetherness, where Muslims and non-Muslims come together and celebrate with joyful abandon.
KIND WORDS FROM KIND PEOPLE ABOUT OUR EID CELEBRATIONS
“Super cute Eid celebration event and a reminder of why London is the coolest city.”
“Degs of Biryani; ice cream everywhere and the odd vegetable too (okra, fried); an easy, inclusive space where old, young and even younger came together in picture-perfect moments; spoken word; a battalion of face-painted children walking around; mehndi; and wave-upon-wave of Qawwali by Chand Ali Khaan – under the stars, praising the heavens. Glorious. Thank you Dishoom, you mad, thoughtful geniuses, you.”
“A biggest thank you to @Dishoom for hosting this stunning evening celebrating culture and diversity, and thank you to all the special guests for your divine love and support. What an honour – the night was electric. Can’t wait for the next one.”
Once again, we’d like to say a huge thanks to our awesome performers; Chand Ali Khan and his Qawwali group; Fahad Khalid; DJ Sharnita; Sukina Douglas; Jamal Mehmood; Asma Elbadawi; Zia Ahmed and Lamyaa Hanchaoui. You’re true talents.
We captured the magical evening to share with all those that couldn’t make it. And if you were there… spot yourself.
We have arrived at a very sad, but inevitable and clear choice. As of now, all Dishooms are now closed to diners.
Crisp and organised, Roda Irani leads her daughter through the narrow gullies of Swadeshi Market. “Come, let us get to the café.”
Its not often you get the chance to make 1 + 1 = 3, but if you ever do - you should grab it with both hands. Because these are the moments you will remember, the ones you will cherish, the ones that makes it all worthwhile.
Under a canopy of stars and lights, we welcomed our biggest-ever line-up of exceptional South Asian talent to Dinerama for our Diwali celebrations.
Coronavirus has blown our world apart, and all Dishooms are currently closed. It feels like the right thing for us to do.
While the restaurants are closed, we offer solace in our cookery book, which is most certainly still available to order. May it bring Dishoom, joy and plenty of Daal to your home. From all of us, with love.
