Dishoom Restaurant, Kings Cross 

Where: 5 Stable Street, N1C 4AB

What better way to spend a Saturday walking from Maida Vale via the Canal to Kings Cross and back again. 

That total six mile journey makes me feel less guilty about stuffing myself with the best Indian food that I’ve sampled in London. 




The restaurant is so popular that we had to queue for half an hour, but the staff were very pleasant booking us in, and handing out free drinks while we waited.

As you enter, there’s a big bar area downstairs. Upstairs we sat on a small table, and ordered the calamari which was amazing. They didn’t sell Coca Cola, but they did have the Indian version, Thums Up, which is very fittingly named.

We shared dishes, highly recommend trying the spiced potato dish. Then to finish it off, the dessert reminded me of mini milks as a kid. Their pistachio kulfi on a stick was just a perfect way to end a meal.

The last time I was in Kings Cross was when I was 18. My uni friend, Helen, took me to a club. On the streets were a lot of drug pushers, and I never ventured back since today. 

Really loved this restaurant. Five stars for food and service. It’s definitely worth the wait.
