About Dishoom

Dishoom pay homage to Bombay’s old Irani cafés - big-hearted, barmy and bustling places that bring people together from all walks of life, and where everyone is welcomed with warmth.

The Old Irani cafés of Bombay have almost disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: courting couples, sweaty taxi-wallas, students, artists and lawyers. At their prime, there were almost 400 hundred cafés; now, fewer than 30 remain.

These cafés broke down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink. Bombay was more welcoming and more cosmopolitan for their existence. Dishoom pays homage to the Irani cafés and the food of all Bombay.

Customers think of Dishoom as their own world - a world where differences are celebrated, rather than judged. Restaurants are full to the brim with Bombay food and culture.

There are currently seven restaurants across the UK, including Edinburgh, Manchester, Kensington, Shoreditch, King’s Cross, Carnaby and Covent Garden.
