Dishoom Edinburgh is a three-floor restaurant located in the south side of St. Andrew Square. It is housed in a grade A listed building that was formerly an extension of Forsyth’s department store. The design narrative pays homage to Sir Patrick Geddes, a Scottish biologist, sociologist, geographer, philanthropist, and pioneering town planner, who spent time in Bombay and was inspired by the café culture that brought people together. The basement is home to The Permit Room bar, while the ground floor houses the open kitchen. The dining room is on the upper floor, featuring art that reflects Geddes’ time in Bombay. The restaurant’s design draws inspiration from the grand reading rooms of Bombay’s libraries, such as the David Sassoon Library and the People’s Free Reading Room.
