A Bombay Cafè in London | Dishoom

The original Bombay Cafés have almost disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all – rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallahs and courting couples. Fans turned slowly. Bentwood chairs were reflected in stained mirrors, next to sepia family portraits. Students had breakfast. Families dined. Lawyers read briefs. Writers found their characters. Opened early last century by Persian immigrants, there were almost four hundred cafés at their peak in the 1960s. Now, fewer than thirty remain. Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites.

 

Dishoom draws upon the heritage and tradition of these cafés, with our all-day menu paying homage to the food of Bombay.  The term “dishoom” is the old Bollywood sound effect produced when a hero lands a good punch, or when a bullet flies through the air. Successfully managing two venues, in Shoreditch and Covent Garden, the owners have just opened a new restaurant right behind King’s Cross.
