Dishoom, the masters of Indian dining with ever-popular restaurants in Covent Garden, Kings Cross, Carnaby Street and Shoreditch, are celebrating the opening of a new South Kensington restaurant with an immersive dining adventure. Co-founder of Dishoom Shamil Thakrur collaborates with theatre makers Swamp Studios, to transport guests to 1949 Bombay.
The stately Barkers Building is the ideal backdrop for the cocktails, live music and a generous three-course feast, but there's an absorbing undercurrent of activity as snippets of drama unfold around diners. Our smooth but stressed host Cyrus Irani has a criminal past and it's catching up with him.
Though neither the narrative nor the food are especially remarkable, the combination makes for an atmospheric and entertaining evening.
