London Restaurant Find: Dishoom Shoreditch

The word “Dishoom” is the old Bollywood sound effect when a hero lands a good punch.  So it’s fitting that the “Bombay café” of the same name, in Shoreditch packs quite a punch.

Introducing Londoners to a novel take on Indian food, Dishoom’s menu is a far cry from the stereotypical curry house dishes, instead featuring sophisticated sharing plates influenced by street food and a brightly coloured industrial interior rivaling the best in London.

If you only visit once, go for breakfast – the Bacon Naan Roll, washed down with a steaming glass of House Chai, is a meal you won’t forget.  Dishoom gets very busy and has a no bookings policy at dinner, so breakfast is a good tactic for avoiding the hoards too.
