Farzi London is well-known in India for its molecular gastronomy and tableside theatrics, but its much-loved London outpost is better known for its stunning dishes, which are best described as avant-garde with a twist.
The team have put together an incredible dining concept which looks at Indian cuisine in a whole new, or you might say old, way. Instead of sticking to the modern perceptions of Indian dishes, the kitchen seeks to open your mind and take guests on a culinary journey across what was once known as an undivided India. Countries such as Afghanistan, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and many more, originally sat under the same banner as one nation, and so Farzi London looks to draw inspiration, flavours and techniques from across the whole continent.
Experience the succulent, slow-cooked Nalli Nihari stew which comes from Lahore, as well as the sizzling kebabs usually served on the bustling streets of Lucknow. We particularly like the sound of the chaats from Old Delhi's market district, Chandni Chowk. You'll also find an impressive attention to detail when it comes to cooking techniques and no effort has been spared to protect time-honoured traditions like Dum cooking which uses slow-release steam and Sigri with a charcoal grill.
If all that has your mouth watering, you’ll be thrilled to learn that Farzi London boasts a private dining room with no hire charge and no minimum spend. This is unusual enough, but given Farzi London'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.
