Dishoom King’s Cross is the biggest restaurant from the group yet. It is spread over three floors with 250 covers in the main restaurant and a further 90 in the ‘Permit Room’ basement bar. Formerly a stable, this grand, subterranean bar serves fine cocktails and beer on tap – a first for the Dishoom group. The kitchen is open plan and based on the upper mezzanine level with some seating so diners can watch the chefs cook. Finishing touches include banquette seating modelled on second class local trains, a replica of the station clock from Bombay Central railway station, and faded black and white portrait photographs.
“We’ve worked with Dishoom since Dishoom, Shoreditch, but this King’s Cross site is the largest and most impressive by far. I particularly like the black ductwork & canopies – these were a first for us, but they really fit in well with the design scheme in King’s Cross.”
