Fast-growing restaurant chain will create 100 jobs at new venture in Manchester

Dishoom Manchester

A fast-growing restaurant chain has announced its latest branch is to open in Manchester.

Dishoom will create 100 new jobs when it opens for business at the Manchester Hall in Bridge Street on the edge of Spinningfields later this year.

The award-winning chain has a total of six branches. They are in Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Shoreditch, Kings Cross, Kensington and Edinburgh.

The restaurants are inspired by the old Irani cafés of Bombay, and the new branch will be open every day from early until late.

Irani cafés were a part of the fabric of life in Bombay. They were opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran ant there were almost four hundred of these cafés at their peak in the 1960s.

Now fewer than 30 remain but at the time the cafés broke down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink.

The new venue will be serving executive chef Naved Nasir’s breakfast menu followed by the all-day sharing menu of Bombay comfort food.

Dishes will include small plates, grills, biryanis, salad plates, rolls and curries.

The new restaurant will also feature a Permit Room bar, serving Carl Brown’s list of drinks as well as brand-new cocktails and a range of excellent non-alcoholic cocktails, known as ‘copy tipples’.

The creative team behind Dishoom always write a story – a founding myth – for each restaurant.

This provides the basis for design decision and is always deeply rooted in an aspect of Bombay history.

The Dishoom team has already started looking for staff for the new restaurant.

The company prides itself on offering fun, rewarding and stable careers with excellent opportunities to learn, grow and develop life-long skills.

Further details of Dishoom Manchester will be released later this year ahead of the opening.
