Dishoom heads for Edinburgh

Dishoom, which opened its fourth site in the Carnaby area of Soho in London recently, is taking a 6,800 sq ft unit also facing St Andrew Square In Edinburgh the group and will open in the 1920's-era former Forsyths department store building at St Andrew Square this winter

Dishoom serves Bombay breakfast, lunch, afternoon chai, plus dinner and tipples based on the legendary all day cafés of Bombay which were started in the early 1900s by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran.

The opening is a significant step for the business taking it away from its London roots but marks a homecoming for the restaurant's co-founder Kavi Thakrar, who went to university in Edinburgh.
