our first meal in london was early dinner at dishoom on 24.3.2016.

this a hugely popular place, and top in many reviews, and rightfully so.

the last time we were here on 15.5.2015 our queue was 1.5hrs.

this time we went early at 530pm. still the queue was 45mins. but it was quite ok since they have a bar area which is a rather pleasant watering hole.

my family not short of drinkers just that i am not one.

wife & son enjoyed their cocktail.

i had some non alcoholic. i didn’t remember what it was, but it was ok. the environment of dim lighting & high ambient noise didn’t encourage me to try to read the menu nor hear what the server said.

still, while i won’t go myself for a drink it was quite pleasant in the company of wife & son. daughter had not arrived yet, & son went to fetch her at king’s cross after our dinner.

egg plant, calamari, prawns

egg plant, calamari, prawns

we ordered 3 appetisers – deepfried egg plants, calamari, & chilli prawns.

a server came to inform us that as they made us waited a bit longer, all the appertiser were on them.

such excellent service philosophy! the 45mins was just an estimaet & we probably waited 5mins longer. very wonderful of them indeed!

egg plants

egg plants

egg plants were very good, their popular dish.

calamari

calamari

calamari were pretty good, but i had better. prawns ok.

rack of lamb

rack of lamb

the rack of lamb was excellent, another popular dish, very tender & flavourful not so lamby…

chicken curry

the curry was very good. the chicken dices were not that great this time, not so tender.

chicken bryanni

chicken bryanni

we had lamb bryanni last time. this time we had chicken bryanni. the rice was very good, and the chicken were moist & tender.

the last time i said tops. this time i think not as good but still a very nice bryanni.

garlic naan

garlic naan

& garlic naan was good especially to mop up the curry.

we had a very good dinner. i was a bit less wowed than the first time, but still it was very good food for the palate, very enjoyable & more so because they did not charge the 3 appetisers. so a wonderful gesture.
