We ate at two Dishoom restaurants during out week in London. Loved it, especially the Okra fries, the Black Dal, and the spicy shrimp appetizer.

Love this place, and the Bacon Naan roll is unique and a must stop in London. Service is always friendly and quick. Book ahead though can get very busy, even at breakfast. I prefer this location to the Carnaby Street branch - always find the...More

When I was there, they did say they do weddings and such. So I would think you could. At least a portion.

Description
The original Bombay cafes have almost all disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallas and courting couples. Fans turned slowly. Bentwood chairs were reflected in stained mirrors, next to sepia family portraits. Students had breakfast. Families dined. Lawyers read briefs. Writers found their characters. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost four hundred cafes at their peak in the 1960s. Now, fewer than thirty remain. Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites.
