Dishoom - Shoreditch

3 of us went along to Dishoom last night for the soft opening of the new branch of Dishoom in Shoreditch.  First impressions were great, the courtyard was quirky and welcoming, the inside was quite spacious and casual with great authentic Bombay style.

Foodwise, we have been to the Covent Garden branch a few times so knew what to expect, but we have to say that a special mention has to go to the Lamb Raan Bun which is the Chef's Shoreditch Special which was just melt in the mouth amazaballs!

Chilli Cheese Toast - so simple but so good

Lamb Raan Bun, Okra Fries and Bhel (just in picture)
Gunpowder Potatoes - tasty, Chicken Ruby Curry which just didn't
compare to the amazing Lamb Raan Bun
Other dishes ordered:

Chole Chawal - too salty and a little dark looking
Dishoom Calamari - cooked to perfection and just lovely
Sheekh Kabab - we thought this was good until we had the Lamb Raan Bun which just blew us away.
Kachumber Salad - not that special
Roomali Roti - great, thin, elastic bread which is perfect to mop up the sauces and wrap around bits of food.

Food: 4/5 - just a little on the salty side
Service: 5/5
Price: 5/5 - 50% off due to the soft launch so it was a bargain!
Ambiance: 5/5 - toilets are brilliant too!
