Flack: (saving) on expenses - Dishoom, London WC2

Reviewer Nicole Legett, account director, Sister PR

- What's it good for?

It is inspired by Bombay's disappearing Persian cafes so expect an informal atmosphere and sharing dishes.

- Signature dishes

Not your typical 'curry house' Indian cuisine. Try inspired choices such as desi fish fingers with tamarind dipping sauce, roomali rolls or Dishoom calamari. For die-hard curry lovers there is a 'Ruby Murray' of the day.

- Who's the boss?

Dishoom is the vision of three young Indian entrepreneurs, Shamil Thakrar, Amar Radia and Adarsh Radia. Family photographs adorn the walls alongside 1960s Bollywood posters.

- Tips please

Try the breakfast. The bacon naan rolls with homemade chilli jam are a real treat with a cup of warm spiced chai. The booths are spacious and great for a working lunch.

- What's the damage?

Prices are very reasonable, from £1.90 for small plates such as chilli cheese toast and keema pau to £9.70 for spicy lamb chops or grilled masala prawns. Expect to spend around £25 per head including drinks.
