I’ve eaten at Farzi Cafe 3 times, the 1st time as a paying customer during the soft launch opening and the other 2 times as an invited guest to try limited edition menus. I was also sent items from their 2020 menu during Lockdown. This review will be based on all my visits and experiences.
Date of (1st) Visit: December 2018
Farzi Cafe is a Modern Indian Bistro serving cutting edge food with a british twist, that opened up near Piccadilly circus at the end of 2018.
I’ve eaten the food from here a total of 4 times and each time the food has been exceptionally good. This includes one occasion where I was grateful to be invited to a review of a slow cooked roasted lamb shoulder which was one my all time best things I’ve ever eaten. Sadly, that item is only available on Eid. It feeds 6 people.
The food here is good, everything has a sense of quality and thought behind it. Dishes like my favourite, the avocado chaat is an example of simplicity and creativity, executed to create a unique tatsy dish. There’s also some British classics that have been Indianfied, like deshi scotch eggs and deconstructed cottage pie with Wagyu beef! I visited during the soft launch where I got 50% off. Not sure if they are still on the menu.
The menu has changed since my first visit back in late 2018, the lamb biryani is one of the few dishes I ate that are still on the menu. I loved the presentation, lamb was tender and tasted very reminist of mum’s biryani £17.
It’s hard to write a solid review for this place as I’m trying to base it on 4 different experiences. However, the common theme from it all is the food is of a high quality and standard, it tastes good, and I fully recommend this place. I’m going to take the easy way out for this one, as i’m having a hard time to merge 4 separate meals into one flowing review. All the dishes i’ve tried here have scored at least 7/10, there is nothing average, everything is top quality and of a high standard.
The decor and service is that of a fine dining restaurant, It’s evident from the moment you walk in that a lot of time, thought, money and effort has gone into this place. It looks fabulous and makes a great spot for a celebration meal or date night with a loved one.
