Farzi Café is a modern spice 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!

Visited for Sunday brunch. Staff were attentive and helpful in explaining the menu and options. The food was amazing with innovative dishes and great flavour combinations. Can't wait to visit again.

Can’t fault the flavour of the food, it was delicious. But £9 for 3 chapati sized bits of bread? Extortionate! Service was very slow, we had to get someone attention for almost everything. Our waitress was nice enough but watching 6 members of staff polishing cutlery and glasses when we still didn’t have a menu... slightly ridiculous. We wouldn’t return.

I was recommended Farzi by a friend who had a Christmas set meal there. Our meal this time was not quite as good. The food is expensive for what it was. It was delicious with good ingredients but just felt overpriced. the Pisco Sour cocktail I had was very well made.

The host who welcomed us was great and made us feel really good about being there. The manager also checked in on us which was nice. I felt that the waitress wasn't quite across the menu and didn't steer or recommend anything and we ended up with quite a dry selection of foods, where I would hope for that price we would have had more guidance.

The food was absolutely amazing. The goat biryani was especially really tasty. There was a lovely ambience about the restaurant and as it was my boyfriend's birthday I loved the dessert sweet that was provided with a firework candle. Definitely go again.

Amazing modern Indian bistro ... both service and food was excellent. Francis was a great host looked after us very well and chose the dishes we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Recommend the Shitake & Black Pepper Paneer Tikka for main. The Daal makhani was very tasty too. The desserts were all time favourites but also very different. The presentation and the slight twist to flavours made them exciting.
Extremely enjoyable evening!! Will be back soon .

We had a lovely meal service was good, very attentive staff, the only thing I would say is we were only given the main menu and had to ask for the pre-theatre menu, some people would be too embarrassed to do this. I would therefore suggest that this one is automatically offered along with the main menu.

Overpriced and small portions. Lack of substance overall. Trying to be quirky and doesnt work. Wont be suprised if these guys arent around for much longer.

The starters were great but the mains were very disappointing we asked for biryani and CtM to be spicy and was really bland ... quite unfortunate as starters .. tandoori chicken and sweet potatoe buns were delicious

Was very excited to try Farzi cafe. Did not meet expectation. Found it a bit average. Dishes have a nice twist and look creative on paper, in reality was okay.

We went to Farzi after sampling their amazing bao buns at Taste of London in November. I was directing passers by to their stand as the food was so good and the owner gave me a free butter chicken bao as he saw me telling everyone how good it was. The food at the restaurant on Saturday did not disappoint. Possibly the best Indian food I’ve had outside of India.

Food was good, but portions were VERY small. I had the chicken tika masala, which was flavorful, but
which contained very little chicken. Prices were very high given the amount of food. I left hungry.
Would NOT recommend.

Having been to two related restaurants in India, we found the food excellent, but completely missing the theatre and fun experienced in Gurgaon and Bangalore.

The waiters were very attentive, but we were greeted by a silent, sullen front of house welcome.

All up, food was great, but the experience was disappointingly a long way off our expectations.

NYE dinner - £75 per head with champagne.
We were informed upon arrival that the table was not ready, when it was ready we were told we had the table for 2 hours (for a 5 course meal!). And five of us were seated on a four seater table. We sat down and ordered our food and the first course didn’t arrive till at least half hour after we ordered. We were rushed through our meal, didn’t even get to finish our bottle of wine.
The food was mediocre and not worth the price. I wouldn’t recommend or go back.

We went for NYE. Food was lovely, though we were there for an 1hr45 before getting our main. Also they were setting up for a party, and they had flashing disco lights which kept shining in our eyes throughout. We complained several times until they finally were turned off. They then came back on near the end of the meal and so we left sharpish. Put a bit of a downer on the experience.

Food arrived cold and bottled beer flat. Staff were friendly and helpful in replacing the beer, but ultimately service was exceptionally slow. Poor quality food.

Food was below average and given it was new year eve, I would have expected that they will use best cook as they were charging £46 pp set menu + taxes. The quantity was too low and definitely not value for money. Food was lacking massive spices and taste

Food was tasteless, waiters need to be taught that they are in service industry. Overpriced for the quality. I am such a huge farzi fan in india but London was extremely extremely poor.

We were very well looked after by both front of house and back of house.
Was very lucky to have Chef Arjun come to the table and meet my guests.
Food was amazing.
It has to be the best Indian Restaurant In the UK.
The CTM is my favourite.
It’s my 3rd visit now and can’t wait to take more friends back there.
Thanks guys.
Francis, we missed you this time. Hope to see you next time and enjoy your excellent service.

We were encouraged to have Indian food in London before a play and randomly booked Farzi. It didn’t disappoint. My blackened salmon was prepared perfectly. The staff listened to our interests and guided my table of three beautifully. Every dish we had was delicious. Our pre dinner cocktail light and refreshing. Dessert a fig and Carmel pudding fantastic. I will visit again next time in London.

The chicken biryani was overrated (less than normal) and the lambs chops were delicious and must try. The kitchen closed after we seated by 10 mins (last order) which is ridiculous.
