Sharing Plates: Shamil Thakrar and Nitin Sawhney


In 2010 Shamil Thakrar, alongside brother Kavi and friends Amar and Adarsh Radia, co-founded Dishoom, a London restaurant based on Bombay's Irani cafés, inclusive street food spots popular in the twentieth century—which are now nearly extinct. Since then they have opened three more Dishooms in the UK, including one on Carnaby Street in central London, where the latest installment of our series Sharing Plates takes place. 

For this episode New York-based director Charlotte Rabate captured Thakrar with his friend, British-Indian musician, composer and producer Nitin Sawhney, as they talked about food, music, family and a lot else.
