    Their queuing system is absurd (queue for ages, sit on a bench, go the the bar and THEN you can eat) but their food is just excellent. Get the cheese naan, the okra fries and anything from the grill.

    Gorgeous space for a drink and meal. Friendly staff. Okra fries all the way. If you're game try Gola ice (dessert). It isn't for all tastes but i enjoyed it and think its a great way to finish a meal.

    Great food. Can't go wrong with the biryani and the bbq dishes. Also malai kulfi not to be missed to top off lunch. Great ambiance at the new location..... despite the tounge in cheek xenophobic sign

    The third and BIGGEST outpost, it's a beautiful and welcoming warehouse space with insanely tasty food to boot. Great for big groups, so order to share. Get the crispy prawn koliwada and okra fries. Read more

    Possibly my favorite Indian restaurant in London. Styled as an old Bombay it sets itself apart from typical dirty curry joints. Absolutely awesome food and ambience. Bit far out, but worth the effort!

    You feel as if you’ve hit the streets of Mumbai at Dishoom, where piquant paneer rolls, lamb samosas and chicken tikka are served in the vast but perpetually crammed former Western Transit Shed. Read more

    Amazing place. Amazing atmosphere. Takes me back to irani cafes in Mumbai. Decent vegetarian and gluten free options. Attention to detail in decor is amazing. Good choice of cocktails.

    Went in a large group for breakfast. Food was delicious. Service was ok initially and got better.. recommend the kajriwal or the keema par edu. we ended up staying for lunch too lamb nihari was great!

    A Bombay Cafe with great Indian style tapas food, friendly staff and quirky decor. There might be a wait for a table but if your in no rush it's well worth it!!!

    This place will blow your mind and palette! It's Indian street and popular fare at its best! I was tripping on the Dal, keema pao, biryani! Great service, eclectic shots & cocktails. Must go!

    It worth waiting. Cheese Naan, spicy lamb chops, biryani, raita is my favourites. Chocolate pudding with chilly ice cream is a must try. Pineapple tart is the other option.

    good drinks+great food at reasonable prices. Even the 1 hr queue was made pleasant by free drinks and polite servers who endeavoured to get everyone indoors as soon as space freed up at the bar. LOVE!

    Wow. Exquisite attention to detail throughout, from the drinks menu, the decor to the food. Black dahl and lamb on the bone were cooked to perfection and went really well with roti and naan. Go here!

    Almost everything is good here. The kings cross outlet is huge and seems the servic is suffering a bit due to sheer volume. Though can't go wrong with the food, specially masala prawns and the biryani

    Yum yum yum. I think I ate everything here! The virgin colada is awesome! Very unique, I would definitely try it. The ruby chicken is a classic, very tasty. The kulfi for dessert was very creamy :)

    First, we followed the HP recommendation to avoid diner time 6.30 and 9.30 pm which was fine - no queue. Awesome atmosphere, mix between India and industrial vintage style. Great food for middle price

    New Dishoom at Granary Square may be the best one yet!! Beautiful décor and gorgeous food!! The house special of lamb shank curry is pretty damn good.
  • Blog O.
    Based in a humongous warehouse, this Dishoom offers plenty of space, great for groups. Love the bottomless Chai tea. Though it's a bit of a nappy valley, watch out for hordes of prams at entrance.

    Favourite place in London. Recommend the Murgh Malai, Lamb Biryani, and really just about anything! Always with a Kingfisher and naan, obviously. The Raita is great for folks who don't like too spicy.

    The food is just fantastic! My favorites were the crispy okra fries and the ruby chicken curry.. Exquisite flavours! The staff are super friendly and I tried the amazing house chai on the house :D

    Great quality food and not too pricy, even though it's not the most authentic Indian food. The venue is beautiful and the service efficient. Order cheese naan, chicken ruby and fish tikka.

    Really good food at very reasonable prices (the exact opposite than many other restaurants). Everything I had so far is above average to great. Probably the best Chai. Great environment and staff.

    Best Indian restaurant in London. Pau bhaji, house black daal and the Viceroy's old fashioned are must tries. Great places for groups and dates.

    Infuriatingly they won't let you sit in Granary square during your inevitable wait. Beat them at their own game by ordering an excellent old fashioned + letting the huge ice cube melt. Second drink!

    Great space and food. Very popular & long waiting list w/o reservation. You can wait in the lounge where the friendly staff make everything to make the waiting pleasant

    I don't even know how to describe this place. Indiany-but-not-normal-Indian food. Exquisite attention to detail; have yet to find something on the food or drinks menu I didn't love. My favourite.

    Tasty indian food. Brunch hour with refill chai tea is very nice. If it's ur first time, try ruby curry with garlic or cheese nan and calamari is very good!

    Food is great. We had to wait 1h10 at the bar but always worth the wait. The service is nice too. Gluten free and vegetarian options. Great atmosphere and design.

    I am by no means an Indian food expert, but it's the best Indian restaurant I've ever been to. Ruby chicken was great. Naan + spicy chutney was magical.

    Brilliant all day long! Great breakfast including bacon naan. For lunch or dinner make sure to try the prawns, paneer curry, dhal and chicken biriyani.

    Great atmosphere. Chilli cheese toast great, plus chicken tikka but in fact everything everyone had was very good. Not your traditional Indian if that's your expectation

    Although it gets busy, this is a huge branch and you needn't wait long for a seat. Their best thing is brunch: try the sausage & egg naan. It's too damn good.

    Much better for breakfast than dinner. The bacon naans and masala beans make for an interesting alternative to most breakfast options, whereas dinner seemed like standard slightly overpriced Indian.

    Atmosphere, Omelette & Chai were lovely and many more things on their menu that I'll be back to try
  • Fatima A.
    I can't stop coming back for the spiced chai and egg nan rolls (special tip: order the side chicken livers and put them in the roll... divine!)

    Defiantly try the keema pau. It's a must have, flavours are delicious and the bread is made from fresh. 😋

    So good. Black Dahl cannot be beaten. Just make sure you get here before 6.30pm or you will be waiting a couple of hours for a table.

    8.5/10 Great North Indian food. The place is nicely decorated. The menu is limited compared to other Indian restaurants in London and waiting time can be ridiculous (sometime over 2 hours).
  • Huzaifa K.
    The bottomless chai (Indian tea) is awesome! Had 5 cups! Great ambiance - we'll be back!

    Faultless service and food quality. Atmosphere even better. Dishoom chicken tikka is a must try. Staff very good if you have food allergies too!
