A taste of historic Bombay with a British twist at this atmsopheric Irani café which opens from breakfast until late.
Dishoom's first foray beyond London has proven to be incredibly popular with Edinburgh curry lovers over the past year, as the queues that regularly snake around St Andrew Square show. Inspired by the Irani-style cafes of Bombay, Dishoom’s menu has quirky yet familiar dishes, ranging from breakfast bacon naan to full-flavoured biryani and mixed grill favourites. Signature dishes like the house black dhal and mashed vegetable extravaganza that is the pau bhaji are well worth sampling alongside tikka, kebab plates and good old-fashioned chana chaat salad. With its art deco interiors and Anglo-Indian design, the Permit Room basement bar is ideal for cocktails with a modern Indian twist, whether you’re settling in for the evening or waiting for a table (Dishoom has a no-reservation policy for smaller parties). If you're looking for Indian cuisine that ups the ante as far as flavours go without losing the comforting elements of the traditional curry, Dishoom can go straight to the top of your list.
