Personal Favourites

Farzi Cafe – Soho

Farzi Cafe creates modern fusions on traditional Indian cuisine. With delicious food and amazing cocktails, I've found a new fav in London!

Farzi Cafe is one of my favourite places when I’m in central London. Located in Haymarket, Soho, Farzi serves contemporary, pan-Indian dishes. A real hidden gem within the crazy touristy Haymarket area of London. They gained instant public and critical acclaim for their inventive, evolved menus which focus on the finest quality ingredients. Furthermore, we were invited to review Farzi Cafe and were instantly impressed by the incredible modern luxurious looking decor and extraordinary bar. We were greeted by the general manager Francis who above all made every effort to ensure our experience was as special as possible. He made our meal feel effortless and as enjoyable as possible, we also very much appreciated his menu and cocktail recommendations.

The Cocktails

All the cocktails were on point. With the impressive decor of the bar, we enjoyed a star signed themed cocktail menu and exquisitely presented drinks. Having spotted some truffle gin, we also got the bartender to make up a truffle Negroni as a treat. I was impressed by the cocktail recommendations based on our flavour preferences, moreover I’d even return to Farzi cafe just for drinks alone.

The Food

The food was the biggest highlight. The general manager Francis recommended us what to order throughout our meal. We first started with the Hass Avocado Chaat and the Dal Chawal Arancini which were super delicious. Then the buttermilk chicken bao and wagyu bao were mouthwatering. After that, for mains the goat shawarma biriyani was spectacular. Although not unique, the chicken tikka was terrific and a comforting classic. I also very much liked the braised lamb shank. Lastly for dessert, we had the chocolate chai bubble with chocolate truffle, vanilla and strawberry compote layered with crispy chai bubble. I am a huge dessert girl, and this was magnificent! Make sure to leave room for dessert!
