Dishoom pays tribute to the old Irani cafés of Bombay, known for being the first places where people of any culture, class or religion could break bread together. These café’s saw couples, taxi-wallas, students, artists, families and lawyers come together, and it was these Irani cafés who helped spare Bombay during the Indian Partition.

Inspired by these cafés, Dishoom was born and continues to bring people together from all walks of life and cultures serving up its ‘Bombay comfort food’. Since its first restaurant opening in Covent Garden in 2010, it has grown to 8 restaurants across the UK – including Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. Dishoom has a further 8 delivery kitchens with 6 in London, 1 in Brighton and 1 in Cambridge which opened earlier this year.

Not only known for its vibrant flavours and atmosphere, Dishoom was ranked 4th Best Company To Work For by Best Companies earlier this year!


Dishoom select who they work with very carefully, particularly when it comes to sourcing ingredients. Food is locally sourced where possible and their all day menu is halal, meaning their meat is from certified suppliers where animals are humanely stunned before slaughter. Dishoom have also signed up to the Better Chicken commitment, who are committed to improving the welfare of chickens produced for meat.

When it comes to drinks, their coffee is brewed using Direct Trade beans by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee and their bottled water is from One Water meaning all profits go to sustainable water projects around the world. Their tipples feature the Dishoom IPA, brewed by Mondo Brewing Co. and their beers and ciders are from local breweries.

A meal for a meal

Dishoom recently reached a huge milestone of donating 10 million meals to hungry school children in both the UK and in India, along with the help of charity partners Magic Breakfast and Akshaya Patra. They launched this initiative in Ramadan 2015 and ever since, for every Dishoom meal eaten, Dishoom have donated a meal to a child that might otherwise go hungry. This supports every child but particularly girls in India where a meal at school means they have more chance of being sent to school and receiving an education.

Dishoom store

During the pandemic, Dishoom had to diversify their offering with not only delivery but also their home kits which have proved hugely popular with customers. Each kit includes delicious, fresh ingredients and cooking instructions so that you can enjoy Dishoom at any time, from the comfort of your own home. There’s even a kit for Dishoom’s much loved breakfast item, its famous bacon naan roll! The great news is that for every home kit purchased, Dishoom still donate a meal to Magic Breakfast, providing a meal for a child in the UK, so you don't need to order from their menu to support this important cause.
