Welcome to Dabbawal, Indian street food pioneer, the UK’s Best Casual Dining Restaurant (British Curry Awards 2015 and 2017), and everyone’s favourite neighbourhood kitchen. Colourful, buzzing kitchens bring you the fresh tastes of the street – Indian snacks and chaats, tapas-style grazing dishes, classic curry plates and unique street combos. The urban kitchen concept was created and named after the famous Dabbawalla lunch delivery men of Indian cities, long before the craze for street food hit the UK.

The heart of every Indian home beats in the kitchen, and at Dabbawal, you meet and eat any way you like. Tapas-style street combos, side dishes, and curry plates are fresh, relaxed and laid back; your food comes as it’s cooked and you share – or keep everything to yourself. The Bombay Bomb is a best seller, Bhel Puri is always a big talking point, along with the Railway Lamb Chops. If you're looking for a Indian restaurant with a twist, then try Dabbawal, located conveniently in the heart off the city of the iconic Grey Street and close to the Theatre Royal, making it an excellent pre-theatre dining option.
