The normal menu food is decent. Nothing special. The breakfast options are great though. The waiting at dishoom is always too much - I wouldn’t bother next time.

We have been to Dishoom a few times now and the one recurring criticism we have is that the portions are far too small given the prices on the menu. The food is generally of a high standard - only the paneer dishes are a...More

When I was there, they did say they do weddings and such. So I would think you could. At least a portion.

The original Bombay cafes have almost all disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallas and courting couples. Fans turned slowly. Bentwood chairs were reflected in stained mirrors, next to sepia family portraits. Students had breakfast. Families dined. Lawyers read briefs. Writers found their characters. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost four hundred cafes at their peak in the 1960s. Now, fewer than thirty remain. Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites.
