DISHOOM

Dishoom is a culinary staple to Kings Cross, an all-day Indian street food menu in a Bombay-style café, over-loaded with luxurious vintage decor, marble tables and ceiling fans.

Creating and serving and array of breakfasts, lunches, afternoon chais, dinners and tipples, Dishoom has acclaimed national recognition for its delicacies. It has been listed in The Michelin Guide as of 2014, The Good Food Guide in 2012, 2013, and 2014, and in The Best Breakfasts by Time Out London, amongst others. Dishoom prides itself is being a traditional Irani café supposedly set in the Bombay horizon, similar to the historic ones in Central India, which now seem to be slowly disappearing through life’s modernisation. There is a real sense of homely-ness and community along with the most relaxed and inspiring, traditional atmosphere to be felt here – a definite visit for time out in N1.
