Dishoom launches first delivery-only kitchens

Indian restaurant group Dishoom has launched four delivery-only kitchens across the capital.

Having initially established a delivery service with Deliveroo from the group's locations in London's King's Cross, Kensington and Shoreditch during lockdown, Dishoom says it has now chosen to move this operation off site so as not to overburden its recently reopened restaurant kitchens.

As part of its Coronavirus safety measures, Dishoom adds that it is no longer offering takeaway or collection from any of its restaurants.

Instead, the group will be operating delivery-only sites in Battersea, Whitechapel, Swiss Cottage and Park Royal, allowing it to cover significant ground across north, east, south and west London. 

Each delivery kitchen will serve a curated selection of dishes from the Dishoom menu 'that are both much-loved and can abide a little travel'. 

They include favourites such as chicken ruby; house black daal; jackfruit biryani; and mattar paneer.

In an email update, Dishoom says that the group's executive chef, Naved Nasir, is currently developing ideas for 'an all-new Dishoom delivery menu'.

Having closed its entire estate back in March following the Government-mandated lockdown of the hospitality sector, Dishoom has now reopened all of its restaurants with the exception of its flagship site in London's Covent Garden, which remains closed for now while it continues to undergo a major redesign and expansion​​.

Earlier this month the group also opened its first Birmingham outpost​ within the city’s £700m Paradise development.

Dishoom opened its original Covent Garden restaurant in July 2010, and currently operates five sites across the capital.

It made its regional debut in Edinburgh in 2016, and opened a restaurant in Manchester in 2018.
