Dishoom has confirmed it will open its first Birmingham outpost on 1 April within the city’s £700m Paradise development.

The opening, which was first reported by BigHospitality ​last year​, will be the Irani café-inspired Indian restaurant brand’s third location outside of London.

It will hold 330 covers across its dining room, bar and terrace area, and overlook Birmingham Town Hall.

Dishoom opened its first restaurant in London’s Covent Garden in July 2010, and currently operates five sites across the capital.

The brand – which announced last year that it was on the lookout for more sites​ following a significant jump in profits – made its regional debut in Edinburgh in 2016, and opened a restaurant in Manchester in 2018.

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 launched its debut cookbook last year – 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.

Dishoom will join wine bar and restaurant group Vinoteca​ at the Paradise development, which is located in Birmingham’s city centre between Chamberlain Square and Centenary Square.
