Time Out Says
At first glance, the interiors are smart, but rather neutral, with gold and beige accents – not exactly reflecting the colourful, vibrant and inventive dishes, but, already, Farzi Café has made a name for itself.
When we arrive, the place is packed. And we can see why. When the menu features a deconstructed shepherd’s pie, with tawa aloo and seared wagyu beef, you’re bound to attract curious foodies from around the city.
We try a flavoursome raj kachori chaat and crisp okra salad, with crispy shells hiding a tangy pumpkin and sweetened yoghurt covered in a refreshing chutney foam.
But it’s the spicy devilled quail eggs, served on top of chicken keema, with zaatar and labneh spheres that really captures our imagination, thanks to surprising yet delicious, well-balanced flavours.
The menu boasts more than 50 such creative dishes, as well as intriguing molecular mocktails, so there are plenty of reasons to go back for more.
The bottom line
Inventive dishes and good service make Farzi Café a must-try.
