“Dishoom”, Edinburgh

This is my version of the one of our favourite lunchtime eating places in Edinburgh. “Dishoom” is a great Indian cafe/restaurant, where you can get a filling and tasty dish to keep you going during a day out in Edinburgh. It’s located on the South Side of St Andrew Square. You can sit downstairs or upstairs – we like to get a table upstairs where it’s less draughty in the winter!

In this painting I have tried to highlight the wonderful Victorian architecture which towers above many a shopfront in “Auld Reekie”. Perhaps I will try a larger version sometime, with more detail.

The official Dishoom website advertises itself as follows:


Footnote: Glad to be able to report, due to the goodness of God, that I’ve made an excellent recovery from a very serious illness which took me out of circulation for the best part of last year. God has answered my prayers in a wonderful way, as you can hear from this talk I gave, if you care to listen!
