  • Founder

Shamil Thakrar co-founded Dishoom in 2010. Dishoom now has 8 sites in the UK and employs over a thousand people. Before 2010, he had, amongst other things, been a management consultant for 5 years and worked in the food industry for 8 years.

They also care deeply about creating a company which is an awesome place to work.
