Dishoom, the much loved Indian café and restaurant chain, has just opened its first branch North of the border and they’ve come to Edinburgh.
Already hugely popular in London, Dishoom Edinburgh is now open every day from early until late, serving Executive Chef Naved Nasir’s breakfast menu followed by the all-day sharing menu of authentic Bombay comfort food including small plates, grills, biryanis, salad plates, rolls and curries.
Their new home is a three-storey 1920s listed building on St Andrews Square. There is an open kitchen on the ground floor, a first floor dining room with views across St. Andrew Square, and a basement bar.
The restaurant will feature a ‘story’ inspired by Scotsman Sir Patrick Geddes (1854-1932), a botonist, ecologist and social reformerwho was a long-term resident of both Edinburgh and Bombay.
Dishoom Edinburgh also marks a return to Edinburgh for Dishoom co-founder Kavi Thakrar, who went to university in the city.
This is the fifth restaurant in the Dishoom stable, which currently has outlets in London’s Covent Garden, Shoreditch (pictured), King’s Cross and Carnaby Street.
