Dishoom East London

With its faded elegance and street food inspired cuisine, I absolutely ADORE East London’s latest eatery - Dishoom

The interior and exteriors of Dishoom are exciting, inviting, romantic and eclectic, featuring a clever mix of lighting, sepia family photographs, an array of oyster lamps and bentwood furniture… and a superbly monochromatic colour scheme! The Indian cafe style food is apparently very good but it’s the Art Deco styling that captures me the most. The restaurant is spacious, and the Bombay/Deco interiors are cleverly placed throughout a deliberately unfinished backdrop.

Antiquities, textured glass, and a dominant marble bar all make up the speak-easy charm of Dishoom. Designed by Russell Sage Studio, the designers behind Zetter Town House, The Hospital Club and St. Paul’s Cathedral, it is an imaginative and desirable space.
