Dishoom is opening a new Art Deco and jazz themed restaurant in Kensington

Dishoom are opening a new Bombay-influenced cafes in Kensington.

The new spot will open on Derry Street, just off High Street Kensington, in late 2017, in the Barkers building.

Already in Covent Garden, Soho, Shoreditch and King’s Cross the new spot will be their fifth accommodating 200 to dine.

The restaurant will be open all day, seven days a week, and will serve executive chef Naved Nasir’s menus of Bombay comfort food such as the bacon naan roll for breakfast followed by the all-day menu of small plates, grills, biryanis, salad plates, rolls and curries.

Shamil Thakrar, one of Dishoom’s co-founders said: “The Barkers building is an incredibly beautiful example of Art Deco, and we couldn’t have wished for a better place to share two particularly awesome aspects of 1940s Bombay: Art Deco and jazz.

I’ve always loved the very specific style of Art Deco that you find in Bombay, and — as a massive jazz nerd — I was delighted when our good friend Naresh Fernandes wrote the book on Bombay’s golden age of jazz, Taj Mahal Foxtrot. Dishoom Kensington will share some of these stories.”

Dishoom will open at The Barkers Building, 63-97 Kensington High Street, London W8 5SE

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
