Dishoom pays loving homage to the Irani cafés that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost 400 of these cafés at their peak in the 1960s. Today, fewer than 30 remain.

I had a very good chicken biryani with delicious tender chicken. I highly recommend the rose and cardamom lassi. I’ve never had such a delicious drink in an Indian restaurant. It was a very nice accompaniment to the cheese naan bread.

There is a car park located in house of Fraser car park near by but suggest you park outside and drop off before parking. There maybe another local car park also near by depends on day and time you arrive
