The team behind the London based Bombay cafes, Dishoom, announces the launch of a new site in Edinburgh due to open this winter.

Dishoom Edinburgh will open at 3a St. Andrew Square in the 1920s-era listed building. The three storey restaurant will have an open kitchen on the ground floor, a first floor dining room with views across St. Andrew Square, and a basement bar and dining space.

In a statement the Dishoom team said the space is the ‘perfect’ location for Dishoom’s first restaurant outside of London and that they are incredibly excited about settling into a city they love.

Dishoom Edinburgh will be open every day from early until late, serving Executive Chef Naved

Nasir’s breakfast menu followed by the all-day sharing menu of authentic Bombay comfort food including small plates, grills, biryanis, salad plates, rolls and curries.

Earlier this year Dishoom was named Yelp’s Top Restaurant 2016. The top 100 is compiled from Yelp’s historical review and ratings data.

Dishoom Covent Garden was opened in July 2010, followed by the Southbank summer pop-up in 2011, Dishoom Chowpatty Beach. Dishoom Shoreditch followed in October 2012 and Dishoom King’s Cross in November 2014, and most recently Dishoom Carnaby in October 2015.
