Indian cuisine fans will be able to sup cocktails and sample Bombay dishes in a new immersive theatre production taking place in an as-yet-unopened Dishoom restaurant in Kensington.

Written and conceived by Ollie Jones and Clem Garritty – from theatre collective Kill the Beast – Night at the Bombay Roxy is inspired by Bombay-based author Naresh Fernandes' book Taj Mahal Foxtrot. It will feature a company of actors and musicians who transport audiences to the Bombay Roxy, an Art Deco cafe and jazz club in 1940s Bombay.

Tickets are priced at £72 each and include a welcome drink and set menu including Chicken Biryani, Black Daal and Bun Maska Pudding.

Shamil Thakrar, co-founder of Dishoom said: "I'm delighted that we are supporting these hugely talented young artists to bring to life an immersive theatrical adventure that is inspired by two of my personal cultural obsessions – jazz and Bombay.

"The jazz scene in Bombay in the 1940s is one of those undiscovered treasure-chests of treats, and I can't wait to see and hear and feel it brought to life in this new show."

Night at the Bombay Roxy runs at Dishoom in the Barkers Building, Kensington from 27 November to 11 December. Tickets go on sale 29 September.
