Dishoom will open its third restaurant outside London early next year within Birmingham’s £700m Paradise development.

The hugely successful Irani café-inspired Indian restaurant brand will join Vinoteca at the development,​which is located in the city centre between Chamberlain Square and Centenary Square.

Argent - Dishoom’s landlord at its King’s Cross restaurant - is behind the mixed use development.

Dishoom opened its first site in Covent Garden in July 2010 and has since opened in Shoreditch (2012), King’s Cross (2014), and Soho (2015).

The brand - which recently announced it was on the look out for more sites following a significant jump in profits​ - made its regional debut in Edinburgh in 2016 and opened restaurant in Manchester last year.

Dishoom has shaken up the traditional Indian restaurant model with enormous sites that regularly attract big queues.

Its restaurants are modelled on the old Irani cafés of Bombay (now known as Mumbai) in India, which were mainly opened in the early 20 century by Zoroastrian immigrants. According to Dishoom, there were once almost 400 such cafés in the city, but now just 30 remain.

The group - which recently launched its debut cookbook - offers a menu of accessible Indian dishes that includes the bacon naan breakfast roll; chilli cheese toast; chicken tikka; keema pau; and the butter chicken-like Chicken Ruby.
