The original Bombay cafes have almost all disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallas 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 Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost four hundred cafes at their peak in the 1960s. Now, fewer than thirty remain. Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites.

Amazing food with an excellent service, food was quick, the service person was polite. Always amazes me and my friends.
One of the best places to have Indian food. I would suggest book a table before coming !!
Their breakfast to me is the best! They have changed the menu slightly after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown but food quality and service still remain outstanding. I came to this branch after a while and was as normal greeted with a friendly receptionist who took...my contact details incase of any virus outbreak which was good. Reasonably busy but sadly the area is still quiet after lockdown. I would not normally be so lucky to get a table walking in! Very clean, social distancing well managed with the pandemic. Nice atmosphere, super friendly staff. Lovely. What more could you ask for? Yes, good food too. I decided to try the akuri which is a twist on scrambled eggs with home-made buns. Loved it. Generous in portion. Filling and not too spicy. To drink I had their famous house chai which is a must! Spicy and slightly sweet with additional free refills. They even offered to give me one to take away. They serve it in a small glass. I would say try and resist after one or two glasses as it will become heavy and you want to enjoy your meal. Would recommend otherwise. Dishoom lives up to the hype. I will say that the breakfast is my favourite.More
Amazing Indian food, really tasty. The is really helpful and friendly, the environment is also outstanding, I really high recommend this restaurant. The only downside is the amount of food served per plate, but I do understand it. You need to book in advance because...normally is big queue outside.More
Ofcourse! "Dishoom" One of our favorite destination for Indian food in London. As usual, planned for Shoreditch but headed to covent garden outlet but a board outside directed to this outlet in Carnaby. That short walk have helped us to be more hungry??. Managed to...get a table without a wait, though we had no prior booking. Great ambience and very welcoming staff! Had an awesome time ????More
We were treated so well from the moment we arrived, despite it getting busier the staff remained really attentive. As they found out we were celebrating our anniversary, they kindly gave us our prosecco on the house. With regards to the food, you cant come...here and not try one of their signature naan rolls - we went for the 'wrestler' which had the sausage, bacon and fried egg. Also recommend the akuri eggs and a cup of chai to finish. Superb!More
Dishoom is very popular for its breakfast but I had only been for lunch and dinner. I decided to bring my dad here for a birthday breakfast to see what the hype was about. Unfortunately, our food came out cold and the restaurant seemed to...be understaffed. We had to send our food back and the waiter apologised and mentioned that they were a little overwhelmed. At the end of the meal, the staff brought around a small dessert for my dad's birthday and stated that the meal was on the house. We were extremely impressed at how humble and responsive the staff were, which is not normal for a restaurant of this calibre. I barely even remember that we had to send food back now because all I remember is how friendly and service orientated the staff were. Despite the cold food, I am still giving this 5 stars because a meal is about the experience and the experience here was fantastic.More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
Yes, Dishoom serves Halal meat. I am not sure if there is any Halal certificate they hold. However, upon enquiring it has been confirmed by the management that they serve the Halal food.
