Delightful Indian option and Bombay Café-esque diner that serves quality dishes for reasonable prices
My second visit to this branch of Dishoom having completed the set of four in London now. I tried the sausage and egg naan (stupidly missed the photo of it) as have had the bacon naan several times and although this was very nice, I would go for the bacon version. The Full Bombay was also had on the other side of the table and this was a fine picture indeed.
I forgot how magical scrambled egg and baked beans are from childhood – the staff very kindly brought out on request a small version of this for me to enjoy after the naan. With unlimited cups of chai tea (I think we enjoyed about 4 each!) the whole bill came to £26 all in, which is pretty amazing for the quality of the food and charm of setting. I booked this table for 2 last week and was the last one available for Sat breakfast and this would appear to be ever popular as a weekend event so my advice is to book well early if you are looking for a quality and original breakfast in London on the weekend. A lovely thing to re-experience and especially on the occasion it was.

This is my third Dishoom I have been to in London and this time was for a small breakfast. I was simply bowled over at how nice the ginger cured bacon with spiced ketchup with soft cream cheese in a beautifully soft naan bread was and it simply amazes me that the most average of places in town will charge the same as this option which is highly original and awesomely tasty. This was also some of the nicest bacon I have ever had full stop and had the perfect weight, thickness and fattyness. The chai (which is served on a permanent refill basis) is a lovely option as is the breakfast oats in a glass.
This is simply a gem of an option to have for breakfast (as indeed all Dishooms are sharing the same menu) and I look forward to completing the set with a visit to Carnaby St branch in the near future(!).
