The cafe is quite open and unromantic. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is really good and well spiced rather than being stupidly hot. It is quite expensive and even plain rice doesn’t come with the main meal and is extra, which is annoying. 2 courses being £100. The menu is quite limited but what’s there they do very well and would recommend for special occasions.
In summary the main courses should include rice or a vegetable dish and the serving staff should recommend/suggest additional dishes to the customer to maximise sales. 👍

Went there for Sunday brunch with two other people. We have been to 2 other farzi cafes in the past, one in India and the second one in Dubai.
Unfortunately, we were badly let down. For a restaurant that charges standard london prices in a fairly fancy location, the least we expect is the front of house to have a smile on their face.

The lady had the least welcoming manner, and totally put us off from the word go. She did not even look at us, just asked us to follow her to our table.
We did casually raise this with the manager who explained that unfortunately the staff member was a bit over worked. Though we understand, with due respect, this should not reflect in their manner at the customer’s cost, and is not the customer’s problem.
The manager was a very nice man himself, and spent time listening to us, and we suspect he had a word with that staff member as she was even grumpier as the meal went on!

This farzi cafe is absolutely not up to the standard of the others we have been to.

We were spending a day in the West End. We love trying new restaurants and food and decided to book Farzi Cafe.

To be honest we were given mixed feedback about the food from friends but thought to try it for ourselves.

First impressions was great in terms of ambience and decor. We were given a table by the door which was not great as it was bringing in a very cold breeze, but the staff quickly moved us to their private dining area. We had 2 mocktails the chai and lychee and selero with a pinot grigio white wine.

The dining area was perfect for us as it was warm and cosy. We ordered various items from the starters. OMG we loved the Chicken Bao buns, the prawns and the the vegetarian Dal arancinis were to die for and the lamb chops were delicious.

Each dish had different spice infusions.
We also had the avacado starter, like a chaat dish. Very refreshing on the palette.

The mains were delicious, both Chicken Currys we ordered were tasteful and full of flavour. The rib eye steak was nice but probably a bit sweet for our liking as we love more spicy and pugent flavours.

Definitely we will be visiting again.

The staff are warm and welcoming. Interiors are decent, but not comparable to other Indian restaurants at similar price point. The starters were tasty, however there was a lot of blank space on the served plate and pitiful quantities. The mains also come at an eye watering price, but the taste is not comparable to other top tier Indian restaurants which are at similar or even lower price point. I won’t be going again on my own money

It was such a pleasure to eat good Indian food after a long time in the capital. Being a Chef I often find Indian food deconstructed in a variety of ways forgetting the authenticity of the cuisine. Farzi Cafe met my expectations more than and beyond... and the staff and the food was excellent!
We choose a festive treat this time and the Paneer and the sauce was top notch and took me back to my roots, My son was celebrating his graduation and this was a perfect venue to celebrate and the Bartender was so kind to explain the process of the cocktail he was making using Indian Whiskey. Overall will be back with my family and friends to taste the other treats on the menu in the New Year. I would recommend anyone who loves Indian cuisine to come to Farzi and experience the real taste of India. Thankyou to all the wonderful staff, Chefs who made our visit so memorable.

The customer service at Farzi cafe is appalling.
When ordering I had asked the gentleman serving us to not
add ice to our drinks. We had ordered for drinks -
Solero, Chai Lychee and Berry Crush.
This was ignored by the person making the drinks as they
done the exact opposite of what I had asked. The bar
woman over heard me and my sisters speaking about the
drinks and she had nicely said she will remake the drinks
without ice.
When the drink was brought over I was then surprised with
the drink portion bearing in mind that it was a non alcoholic
drink. We expressed our disappointment to then have the
manager basically tell us off for complaining. He made us
feel uncomfortable and not welcomed. We requested for
the drinks to be changed to our preference as originally
asked which they then did.
For starters we ordered Manglorian Rava Fried Prawns
and Butter Chicken Baos which were very good.
The main courses were fine. We ordered Ghost Parda
Biryani which was good (recommend) however we were
not too fond of the Murg Qabuli Pulao, it was a little bland
and cold. After having them serve our main courses we
were still eating but we're interrupted and asked if we
wanted our food bagged. This was a very rude gesture
from a listed Michelin Guide Restaurant. We were
disappointed with the whole experience that we decided to
have our dessert elsewhere.

It really bothered me that we booked a table at 10:30, and we weren’t informed that we should show up earlier because “the kitchen closes at 10:30”. Logically speaking, if the kitchen closes at 10:30, then why is the restaurant taking reservations at 10:30? Why are we receiving a call just ten minutes prior to our reservation, being rushed and having ending up making a rushed choice of food over the phone? The overall experience was not bad, but the chicken biryani was absolutely disappointing, the chicken was extremely dry.
