The struggle to find a decent and affordable sit-down dining spot in High Street Kensington is extremely real. So the opening of a Dishoom there was bound to be an instant hit. And it is. This location is everything you would expect from a Dishoom - great Indian food, in a grand setting, with long queues. You’ll find the usual hits of lamb chops, okra fries, and dhal, but there’s also a mutton fry chef’s special at this particular location, which may actually be worth traveling across London for if you don’t live in the area.
