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!

Drinks arrived after the food and they forgot our chicken tikka after reminding them twice and made excuses. Terrible service. Food was okay.

Good ambience. Let down by food. £14 for lamb chops which were 70% fat - disappointing.

Excellent fusion Indian food. The flavours were exceptional- there were no 'masked' elements. The drinks could have been slightly better (Rhubarb Mocktail was very sharp!) but overall the elements just worked- and the flavour profile was excellent!

We'd absolutely recommend Farzi for special occasion dinings

It was a good environment but, the lack air conditioning really made the place quite overheated.

Fantastic evening at Farzi Cafe celebrating our 2 year anniversary now that lockdown is eased.
Goat shawarma biryani was amazing - chicken tikka and prawns also fantastic.
Indian Old Fashioned was a hit too!

The food was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed every dish we ordered. The service could’ve been a bit better, took a while to get the attention of waiters and the restaurant was very hot with either no AC or very little on the main floor. I had a great time and would definitely go back

Excellent food, as always. Goat biriyani is my favourite!
Daal makhni is outstanding, the naan was fluffy and soft but well cooked.
Salmon tikka is excellent and so is the complimentary butter chicken bao (although I'd prefer that with mini-naans).
Drinks are nice...happy hours makes them nicer. But small quantities in a cocktail serving with most of the space filled by a massive ice cube. So drinks are not great value.
I wish they passed on some of the VAT cut to customers but they are enrolled in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme which is great!
I recommend Farzi Cafe- authentic Indian taste with a nice fusion twist to many items. Good ambience, service and location.

The food, as expected was delicious, every dish was full of creativity and flavour. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive.. Sadly, with the CV-19 guidelines in place there was very little atmosphere. All the bar seating has had to be removed so there was none of the usual hustle and bustle to enjoy. Saying that, much happier to be able to enjoy all the delightful food and be to dine out, something we were unable to do a few weeks ago.

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!
