Located close to Hawksmoor’s floating restaurant and Emilia’s Handcrafted Pasta on 13 Water Street, Dishoom Canary Wharf will seat 355 across a double-height 8,800 sq ft restaurant, bar and terrace overlooking the water.
Founded in Covent Garden in 2010 by cousins Shamil and Kavi Thakrar, Dishoom has not opened a restaurant in the capital since 2017. The new restaurant will bring it up to six sites in the capital plus three regional sites in Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
It also runs a number of delivery only kitchens, with locations including Brighton and Cambridge.
The brand pays homage to the Irani cafés that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay, offering an expansive menu of Indian dishes.
Dishoom was recently named the best hospitality company in the UK to work for by job website Glassdoor.
The group ranked at number 12 on the overall top 50 list of companies across the UK in this year’s Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.
