Celebrate Diwali At Dishoom
Experience the Hindu Festival Of Light at London’s first Bombay Café
For the thousands of children who celebrate it each year, Diwali means lighting candles, popping fireworks and the giving of sweets and presents for one of the most important festivals in the calendar. But how many of us are aware of the cultural significance of the Festival Of Lights and how it came to be?
Head to authentic Bombay Café, Dishoom, on October 26 for a day of celebrations including face-painting, traditional pavement chalk–art, and a special screening of award-winning animated film, Sita Sings The Blues.
Dishoom has teamed up with the DSC South Asian Literature Festival to explore the fascinating stories behind the festival. Listen closely as a master storyteller narrates the tale of Diwali; the story of Rama, Sita, monkey gods, demons, celebration and light.
Those who wish to sample an authentic Diwali feast can also do so with the special menu available from October 18–30. Foodie families can enjoy such delights as Phaldari Kofta Ruby (dumplings stuffed with vegetables, paneer and pomegranate), slow-cooked Diwali biryani or the famous Dishoom grilled Lobster tail. Sugar-craving little ones will be kept sweet with complementary Mithai, traditional Indian sweets.
