Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

Harden's says

Folk of Edinburgh rejoiced at the announcement that they were to have their very own branch of Dishoom - the much-loved London-based Parsi cafe chain. Now open, since Dec 2016 in St Andrew Square.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Buzzy, bordering on frenetic” – these “wonderful replicas of Mumbai’s Parsi cafés” have exceptional energy levels for a fast-expanding chain, and offer “deeply satisfying, colonially-inspired, street-food style dishes” (including “terrifically interesting breakfasts”), plus “excellent cocktails”. The catch? – the limited-bookings policy leads to “massive” queues “out of all proportion to reality”. Top Menu Tip – “the black dhal is a must”.

Summary

A “brilliant vibe” has been captured by this “energetic” and impressively executed concept – a growing chain of Mumbai-inspired Parsi cafés; “vibrant street-food” (including a great “brunch Bombay-style”) is served in its “stunningly designed” outlets; “shame you can’t book”. In Autumn 2015, a new branch is slated to open off Carnaby Street.

Summary

“A real buzz” distinguishes these “cool” and “different” – and very popular – Mumbai-style Parsi cafés, in Covent Garden and Shoreditch; the food is surprisingly “genuine”, and “delicately spiced” too.

Summary

“A real change from most Indians”; this “vibrant” Covent Garden café – a superb “recreation of the numerous Parsi cafés in Mumbai” – has many fans for its unusually “cool” ambience, and “delicious contemporary cuisine”; now in Shoreditch too.

"Tried this place once the initial queues had died down. A different addition to the Edinburgh restaurant scene. Marked down for service and ambience as we were limited to one hour (I hate this) and atmosphere was lacking."
