First Dishoom for Scotland opens in Edinburgh


London-based independent restaurant group Dishoom has opened its first Bombay-style bar and restaurant in Scotland with the launch of Dishoom Edinburgh at 3a St Andrew Square.

Housed in a 1920s-era listed building, the three-storey restaurant boasts an open kitchen restaurant on the ground floor, a first-floor café and dining room, and basement cocktail bar, The Permit Room.

The menu devised by Executive Chef Naved Nasir focuses on authentic Bombay comfort food, served as small plates, grills, biryanis, salad plates, rolls and curries. Both the restaurant’s menu and unique design are inspired by the original Irani cafés of Bombay.

Dishoom co-founder Kavi Thakrar said, “We’re so excited to have opened in Edinburgh – a beautiful city that was my home for several years while I was at university.”

Dishoom first launched in Covent Garden in 2010 and there are now four branches across London.
