Dishoom Manchester, 32 Bridge St, Manchester , M3 3BT – Visit Now
Mention Dishoom to anyone in Manchester, and you’ll hear one question, over and over: “Did you have the Bacon Naan Roll?”
No. I had the new Double Bacon Naan Roll.
It’s the same naan bread, freshly baked by hand in Dishoom’s tandoori ovens and it’s the same dollop of cream cheese alongside the same chili tomato jam and warming herbs. It’s a carbon copy of the original classic, but there’s double the bacon; the same streaky bacon they mature for two weeks and smoke overnight. It’s a double bit of genius, a double thing of beauty.
The Dishoom Naan Roll is fast becoming a national treasure and the hype is justified
With a choice of egg, bacon and sausage or even a combination of the three, the Dishoom Naan Roll is fast becoming a national treasure and the hype is justified. There are no superfluous extras here; it’s simply a perfectly-balanced dish built to perfection and the popular Breakfast at Dishoom owes a lot to this magical headline grabber.
It’s worth noting that Dishoom caters for those with dietary requirements extremely well. The various ‘sorry-I-can’t-have-that’ menus are appetizing and varied and the options hold their own. In fact, the Soy Keema No Eedu with salli crisp-chips and home-made vegan toasted buns is as good as its eggy counterpart. We took our dietary test to the extreme and ordered, wait for it, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan pancakes… the Sweet Appam Stack. They were as good as you can get without all the tasty stuff and beautifully done.
The Fire Toast is a simple concept, mastered
The Fire Toast is a very worthy addition to breakfast at £2. Again, such a simple concept, mastered. Smoky, crispy, buttery toast of a dry Manchester morning. Delightful.
The intricacies of Dishoom run beyond the incredible breakfast menu. The rest of the offering is vast, but the detail and execution are staggering and this can be seen in the décor. The interior is tasteful but lavish and every inch of space is meticulously crafted. Dishoom is a living thing and on every visit the walls tell you a different story. With so much wonder to take in, Dishoom makes for quite an enchanting visit.
Main Menu Review
Dishoom Manchester has arrived. What’s Dishoom? That’s a great question, but there’s an even better answer.
Since its Covent Garden launch in 2010, Dishoom has been serving Iranian/Indian food with a British twist to extremely pleased Londoners. If you know anyone lucky enough to eat in one of the five elegant sites in England’s capital city, you’ll have probably heard all about it. Dishoom gets people talking… for good reason.
The menu is something to behold – a culinary winner, from breakfast to dinner
The grand, new location in Manchester Hall is classic Dishoom, with beautiful trinkets and items of interest shipped over from Mumbai, bringing an exotic spice to the tastefully restored, former Freemasons space. The bar is stocked with a range of great liquids, including Dishoom’s very own IPA and the menu is something to behold; a culinary winner, from breakfast to dinner.
The Bacon Naan Roll is the stand out dish and probably the one you’ve heard about, but there’s quality all over the show. The Okra Fries are moreish and the dishes with a British twist are sure to grab attention. Look out for Vada Pau (Bombay chip butty) or some Chilli Cheese Toast, but definitely give the House Black Daal a go as it’s pretty special and well worth the cash.
Dishoom should be right up there on your to-do list
Bridge Street is becoming quite the pocket in Manchester these days and there’s another compelling reason to get down there. With impeccable attention to detail and a charismatic, flavoursome menu, Dishoom should be right up there on your to-do list.
