Dishoom pay loving homage to the Irani cafés that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay. These cafés broke down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink. Since 2015 they have donated a Magic Breakfast for every breakfast served at their restaurants, over 400,000 breakfasts in 2019 alone.

Dishoom support Magic Breakfast for every breakfast they serve because they believe breaking down hunger as a barrier to education is important and urgent. The money donated all comes from Dishoom – it is not added to their guests’ bill or requested through donations in their cafés. They also work with local Magic Breakfast schools, teaching children and parents about healthy breakfasts.

The King's Cross restaurant recently hosted a fantastic takeover for children from three local primary schools. The children enjoyed an amazing morning of fun, food and learning. 

In 2020 we were thrilled when our partnership was shortlisted for a Third Sector Business Charity Award in the category of ‘Consumer Goods/Food & Beverage’.
