We fancied Indian food and were happy when we discovered that Dishoom had a food delivery service. It’s been a while since we’d eaten at one of their restaurants, so having Dishoom delivered to our door was appealing. The Dishoom Indian restaurant food delivery service is perfect if you can’t be bothered to cook. Also, if you don’t feel confident dining inside a restaurant due to Covid, you can replicate the experience at home. I hope you get a chance to order the Bombay style curries and other delights from Dishoom.

Dishoom Indian Food Delivery Menu
Dishoom has a menu that pays homage to the old Irani cafes in Bombay and the food they served. The Dishoom food delivery menu is a shorter restaurant version; however, we did find enough to satisfy our hunger and curry cravings.
We ordered a selection of vegetarian dishes to share. From the Small Plates, you have a choice of Vegetable Samosas, Chilli Chicken (crispy chicken with garlic, ginger, soy and chilli) or Khichia and Chundo (crispy snack like papad).
We chose Pau Bhaji (bowl of mashed veg with a buttered homemade bun) from the Lunch Plates section. It was hearty and satisfying. I particularly like the soft bun; it has a comforting quality. The meat version of this dish is Keema Paul with minced lamb and peas. The other vegetarian option was Paneer (or chicken) Kathi Roll with Chili Broccoli Salad, which is on our list for next time.
The Curry and Daal section is the star of the show. We wanted all the veggie options but, of course, had to limit our choice somewhat. We finally settled on the Mattar Paneer (rich tomato curry style sauce with Indian cheese), which was rather generous on the paneer. We dithered between the House Black Daal or Chloe (chickpea curry) and settled on the latter. Chloe was super spicy, so be warned! If you want non-veg options, the Chicken Ruby or Pepper Lamb Curries will hit the spot.
Chloe Chickpea Curry
Don’t forget to add a Steamed Basmati Rice or a more substantial Chicken Berry Biryani or Jackfruit Biryani. Otherwise, you might prefer a Garlic or Plain Naan to complete your meal.
Chloe Chickpea Curry and Basmati Rice
To make ourselves feel a little virtuous, we ordered a Bowl of Greens (grilled broccoli, snow peas and kale in chilli and lime), it was perfectly cooked, and the pour-over sauce was a nice touch. Chilli Broccoli Salad and Dishoom Slaw are also available.
Finish your meal with the Basmati Kheer (basmati rice pudding with vanilla-infused coconut milk, cardamom and cashews with blueberry compote). It sounded tempting, but I’m glad we resisted because we had over-ordered and had food leftover. The Mango Lassi is worth ordering, though if you like yoghurt blended drinks.
To give you an idea of prices, the Starters are £4, Lunch Plates cost £5.70-9.50, Curry and Daal are £6.90-13.90, Biryani is £12.50, Veg Sides are £4.20-4.90.
