Farzi London is a Modern Indian Bistro serving cutting edge, avant-garde Indian cuisine with a twist.

The menu at Farzi Café London offers contemporary Indian dishes and global classics, with whimsical nods to traditional British favourites. Dishes such as Amritsari Halibut, or Ground Wagyu beef scotch eggs that sits comfortably alongside Dal Chawal Arancini and Shawarma Biryani, each masterfully spiced and creatively presented.

In addition, our cocktail menu is inspired by India’s ancient Hindu past and the interaction between Ayurveda and Vedic astrology - a blend of carefully selected tinctures, herbs and spices are used to highlight each of the 12 cocktails - including 3 non-alcoholic - on its bespoke Vedika Menu.

A selection of small producer wines, including select fine vintages by the glass, with beers from Indian craft brewery, White Rhino, rounds off our drinks offering.

We look forward to welcoming you!

The food was good. But given the price , it wasn't as extraordinary. The cocktails were a let down given the fancy names and claims of unique creations.

2nd visit here and it did not disappoint. Food was amazing and service even better, with a surprise anniversary dessert we weren’t expecting. Decor is also great, however ambience was a little quite due to Covid restrictions and didn’t have the buzz it had last time.

A fabulous venue with a great atmosphere. The waiter was incredibly friendly and all of his recommendations (prawns for starters, wagyu beef and chicken tikka masala with a selection of Indian naan for main) were on point. We had a wonderful date evening here!

The butter chicken was amazing. Best I’ve had, coming from a very Asian person with a big family, so having tasted many of these dishes in the past, the butter chicken was a delight.

Limited choice on Sunday a la carte menu, felt the food served wasn’t to a high standard and similar to food that can be found in any Indian restaurant. Drinks and quail and chicken starter were good. Expected more from a place with so much hype

It was overall a great experience and the food and service were wonderful. However, as it was our anniversary, we asked to be moved to an area where there were fewer guests squished together. We also found the Sindhi Pakwaan dish could be slightly bigger, given it is a main course. But a big thank you to Gaurav Rathod for ensuring we had a great experience!

We went for lunch with our energetic one year old and we were made to feel really welcome.

The food and service was amazing (as were the couple of cocktails we sampled). We especially liked the star sign ones (Leo came in amazing glass and the Virgo was so tasty!)

The staff were very accommodating with the highchair and then us swapping to the pram. Sometimes I get a little anxious going to nice restaurants with the baby but we will definitely be back.

I went to farzi for my birthday meal with my family. Some of the dishes were pretty goolike chicken tikka, butter chicken buns.

Lamb Chops on the other hand were a complete disaster. Fat wasn’t rendered at all and they were not trimmed the way they should be. It was extra fat that made my mother sick. For £25 thats a complete rip off.
Must AVOID

Hair was found in the chicken biryani, waiter apologised and it was deducted from the bill as we had to return the whole dish.

Birthday dessert was nice. I would not go back to Farzi again as its overhyped and much better food can be found at much lower price.
