Farzi Café is well-known in India for its molecular gastronomy and tableside theatrics, but its newly-opened London outpost is better known for its stunning dishes, which are best described as avant- garde with a twist. While the techniques might be new and the ingredients global, the focus is on authenticity, so you’ll find a gorgeous range of dishes. To start there are small plates of delights such as Udupi paneer popcorn and ground wagyu beef Scotch eggs and for mains you can pick from things like shitake and black pepper paneer tikka with cherry tomato makhni, and goat shawarma biryani. When it comes to dessert the restaurant is no stranger to creating an incredible final course for you and your guests. Pairing the flavours of India with european tecniques the kitchen produces dishes such as the chocolate chai bubble which encompasses chocolate truffle, vanilla and strawberry compote and crispy chai layers. Elswhere there is a mango semifreddo paired with the flavours of passion fruit and lime, as well as a cheesecake.
If all that has your mouth watering, you’ll be thrilled to learn that Farzi Café boasts a private dining room with no hire charge and no minimum spend. This is unusual enough, but given Farzi Café’s popularity, acclaim (including a Silver Award from us) and location in the heart of St. James’s, it’s an absolute no-brainer. Whether it’s a business lunch, a special occasion dinner or just a gathering of friends for a fantastic meal, the private dining room at Farzi Café is an excellent choice.
Like the main restaurant, the private dining room is stylish and comfortable, with forest green and gold hues, soft lighting and upholstered bucket chairs. The marble-topped table seats 10 and there are two set menus for guests to choose from. Wine pairing is available too, which the staff will be happy to advise on.
