Welcome to Dum Dickson

The creation of Chef Adam, the virtuoso behind many award-winning restaurants

Celebrating Indian Food

At Dum Dickson, we believe good food should do more than satiate your hunger. It should make you happy and create memoires that you cherish and want to share with your friends and family over time. We bring this philosophy to our fine dining restaurant for connoisseurs of great Indian Food. Our creations range from the scrumptious savouries you can tuck into anytime of the day or night to delectable Dum cuisine that needs to be relished slowly with a glass of our finest wines.

The Dum style of cooking originated as a culinary art form in the 18th century in India. Cooked in covered pots over a low flame over a few hours, Dum cooking lends each ingredient a voice of its own.

We bring this Indian food at its sublime best from one of the connoisseurs of the art in Canberra. Chef Adam started his culinary journey in the prestigious Le Meriden hotel in India in 1992. Over the years, he has worked in some of the finest and most renowned hotels and restaurants across India, Singapore and Australia. In Australia, his work with the Bollywood Masala in Dickson, Chalisa in Tuggeranong and Hungry Buddha in Kingston and Belconnen helped these restaurants earn the best ACT Indian restaurant of the year awards.

In 2017, he stated out on his own with Dum Dickson, which currently stands at the place of the erstwhile Bollywood Masala, the restaurant where he first started creating his culinary magic in Australia. Chef Adam brings the patrons of his restaurant the finest selection of Dum dishes as well as some of the more popular fares in Indian cuisine.
