What’s The Deal?
A vast Bombay style cafe serving modern Indian food throughout the day, with a stylish cocktail menu to match.
We started off with the Far Far crackers (which came with some interesting dipping sauces) and delicious Vegetable Samosas. The food is almost tapas style in that it just comes out whenever it’s ready, so you are constantly grazing which I was perfectly happy with!
Mains we decided on were Chicken Ruby, one of my favourites at Dishoom and one of the few ‘curry’ dishes on the menu that comes with sauce, Lamb Sheekh Kebab and Masala Prawns (both of which come grilled). I can highly recommend all of these! Side dishes were basmati rice (to go with the Chicken Ruby), Garlic Naan (an absolute must) and Raita (to cool down the spice of the Sheekh Kebab!).
We didn’t do desserts as the above was pretty filling but the Dishoom Chocolate Pudding with chili ice cream sounded very tempting! Until our next visit…
Dishoom at Kings Cross (as with all of their locations) is super buzzy and with reservations only for breakfast and lunch, there’s usually a queue anytime after 6pm for dinner, even with the vast number of tables here. The food is certainly worth it though and Dishoom seems to have achieved a somewhat cult status for it’s Bombay weekend brunch and the infamous Bacon Naan.The Kings Cross venue is great for big groups as you can book anytime for over 6 people and they have a number of larger tables. It always seems to be bustling in here no matter when you go!
Budget or Bust?
££ – We spent just under £60 for two at lunch, including starters, mains and drinks. The menu overall is really reasonable for the quality of food, drinks and atmosphere. If you can get a table, Dishoom is not to be missed!
