Full job description

£12.60 per hour

We are proud to be recognised as one of the best places to work in Hospitality. Looking after people is at the core of what we do and we work hard to make life at Dishoom the best it can be. Since 2010, our restaurants have celebrated the Irani cafes and all of the food and drink of Bombay. We have Dishoom Cafes across London, Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham. Our Permit Rooms can be found in Brighton and Cambridge, with our newest Bar-Cafe opening in Oxford later this year! Plus, we have a range of kitchens to ensure our guests can enjoy our food at home!

As well as running busy sites with big teams, we also understand the importance of doing more. From planting trees with our teams in the UK & India, tying Rakhis with our guests, to our dedication to helping to feed children through Meal for a Meal. As of January 2024, we have donated 20 million meals (and counting) to children in the UK and India. As a Dishoomwalle, you contribute 55 meals per shift to this cause.

We are opening our newest Permit Room Bar-Cafe this Autumn in Oxford, and looking for a DemiChef de Partie to join this new team! Our Permit Rooms are a space dedicated to seriously good food, the most delicious and sincere tipples, great music and good cheer. We've just taken top spot for Best Cocktails in the Bravo awards 2024!

At Dishoom, we care about supporting you and your well-being (inside and outside of work). With this, we tend to think about our team’s well-being in four different ways:

Calling all cricket fans, we have our very own Dishoom Premier League (an in-house cricket tournament) where you get to compete with your team at Lord’s.


We’re a growing company and love nothing more than bringing our teams (and families) together to celebrate everyone’s hard work across the year.

You’ll be invited to our:

  • Family Mela (Family summer festival)
  • Huge Christmas celebration

Plus, we host regular team events across our cafes.

Team members who work at Dishoom for 5 years are invited to attend Bombay Bootcamp – an incredible once-in-a-lifetime guided tour of Bombay with our co-founders (over 200 people attended last year)!
