Dishoom’s new Birmingham restaurant with explore the industrial parallels seen between the city and Bombay.
Dishoom Birmingham will open in Chamberlain Square, part of the Paradise development, in Spring 2020.
As ever, founders Shamil and Kavi Thakrar, take inspiration from the old Irani cafes of Bombay, while giving the restaurant a distinct story born out of its location. This time they have been inspired by Birmingham’s history as the “city of a thousand trades”, exploring the similarities with the markets of Bombay and the importance of its commercial heritage.
During the Indian independence movement, the championing of local trades helped a new national identity take shape. So Dishoom Birmingham will be set in 1953 as a newly independent India finds its voice as a nation.
Executive chef Naved Nasir’s menu of Bombay comfort food will be served all day, with a new chef’s special will be created especially for Dishoom Birmingham. The restaurant will also have a Permit Room bar, serving cocktails, teetotal tipples, chai, coolers and more.
Dishoom’s arrival in Birmingham will create more than 100 jobs for the city.
