Expect long queues at this group’s original branch. It’s based on a Bombay café, of the sort opened by Iranian immigrants in the early 20C. Try vada pa...

We went for Dinner without prior booking. It is always busy specially in the evening so waited for half an hour for our turn. In the meantime we we went to bar and had couple of cocktails with Chakna. The drinks were awesome. Loved the...music and the ambience of the place. We ordered Pao bhaji was excellent. It is a great place is if you are looking for a good Indian food plus quick bites. No wonder, it is always jam packed even on weekdays.More

Enjoyable dining experience. We have visited quite a few times. Always a consistent experience. Prices have crept up recently.

Had got the parent in-laws here with the new family for breakfast on a Monday morning. Chai was awesome (free refills). Breakfast options could be better. All in all a good experience. The main reason for the 3* is that the lady at the front...desk was extremely rude. However would recommend.More

33 pound for 10 naan. I love this place but sadly they have hugely increased prices in the last few months . Very very sad .

All I can say is myself and my partner were absolutely silent whilst eating because the food was so tasty! The chef's special is to die for! The staff were great and friendly and made some great recommendations! Whilst we were there a gentleman was...going round disinfecting all the surfaces - handrails, handles etc and our table was disinfected between courses. I hope this place survives COVID, I am sure it will because it was hard to get a table booked! I would recommend eating here and cannot wait to return.More

Bacon Naan is the best! The best twist on a British breakfast - Indian spices, flavours and naan bread. I found Dishoom on Time Out as the best breakfast in London and I’d have to agree!

I visited ages ago, but thought to write some reviews as I know hospitality is one of the areas that has been impacted with covid-19 and I would hate to see business have to close because of it. But incredible food here, so much flavour...in every dish. Can't wait to go back again.More

Outstanding food and service. Went for the first time to the Shoreditch branch for a birthday lunch and ended up going back for dinner! Staff were fantastic without exception, as was each dish.
