We arrived for the pre theatre menu as advertised on the website but were told this is only available through booking and on certain days, fair enough just not clear on the website, so we had to use the a la Carte menu which we weren’t ready for. Our host and waiter were abrupt to the point of rudeness. The food was good but spoilt by the ambience and unwelcoming staff

We had a table downstairs and the area is not as nice as the upper floor. The service was rather quick. The food was delicious and presented in a very nice way but not very light. The tables are a bit small so the serving steps can be a bit awkward.

We had a pre-theatre meal and it was excellent. The Service was outstanding and very attentive. The overall ambience of the restaurant was great and the background music good. A very enjoyable experience.

Some of the best service we’ve ever had, overall great experience but would say the food could be improved.

Some options lacked depth of flavour and spices. The paneer masala was a runny thin consistency with not too much flavour. Lamb shank was good but also lacked Indian flavours and spices, tasted more like a British Sunday roast.

Desserts were good, especially the mango cheesecake. Would come back because of the convenient location and excellent attentive staff, but wouldn’t rush back.

Pretentious staff, woefully small portions for extremely high prices £16 for two pieces of lamb tandoori chops is ridiculous. Had to ask numerous waiters for drinks refills. And at the end the French waiter kept reminding our guests to tag Farzi London in any photos of the food (total cringe!) And then proceeded to waxed lyrical about how they have the fanciest drinks mixing machine the country?? We came to eat, not receive a sales pitch.

Our waiter was amazing. He served 2-course within 45 min, which was perfect becuase we had to go to musical next door. Also did something special for friends 40th. Forgot the guys name but he was good. Went to farzi cafe in Dubai. The food had more of a show effect in dubai than london but still wast tasty.

First time visit and was very pleased with the food and service. Portions were a good size (though the naan bread was a bit on the smaller than I expected). Meal arrived very quickly and staff were attentive and friendly throughout without being overbearing. Would definitely go again.

very nice atmosphere and tempting choice of dishes. Only complaint was our chicken bun started was warm rather than hot. We didn't say anything thus didn't give them a chance to rectify.

It was a great meal in the theatre district - will definitely come back pre theatre. Wine pours we’re a bit too big from the bottle though.
