While Dishoom is an Indian restaurant, I like to think of it a fusion of South Asian and Western (largely because of the drinks they serve). It is one of the most ethnic ‘feel’ restaurants with great service and food in town, which is why the waiting lists on this restaurant are always full (partly because of the central location too), so make a booking and await a rather unusual fine dining experience.
The ambience reminds you of a ‘dhabba’ in India with old table fans, antique-ish shelves and photos on the wall – but all this only adds to the experience of great tasting food and a very interesting range of items on the menu.
For mains I ordered their Dishoom Chicken Tikka which was served with salad and chutneys on the side. For drinks I got their Virgin Bombay Colada – as I already mentioned it was the most unique drink I have had. It was basically a Pina Colada with a South Asian twist. We ended the meal with Kulfi. I am tempted to try more items on their menu and thankfully it is Halal too (Shoreditch branch).
You can expect to spend about £20 per person. [Halal food and drink is served]
