Restaurant of the Month: Farzi Cafe, West End

Where: Farzi Cafe, 8 Haymarket, West End, London, SW1Y 4BP

When: January 2019


Farzi Café, from the Massive Restaurant Group, have come a long way since launching in India back in 2014. Since then they have opened another ten sites, one of which is located in Dubai. So, what does Farzi mean exactly? Farzi means fake, which references the concept’s modern-take on pan-Indian cuisine. Known in the Middle East and across Asia for its experimental, molecular stance on food with its theatre style executions, we were more than delighted when Farzi Café announced they were due to open in the English capital.


Farzi Café opened their doors in Haymarket, a few minutes’ walk from Trafalgar Square, in November. A previous Prezzo, the site is a large one – 4,440 square feet, spanning over two floors. It is said a total investment of around 4 million has been penetrated into the development of the new London branch.


We hear they have completely changed 80% of their menu to suit the UK market, and we are expecting fabulous things! Some of the dishes include their famous take on a Chicken Tikka Masala, served in a British red telephone box and guests will also be able to cook their Wagyu Steak from the comfort of their own seats. The menus available will be an A La Carte and an option of 3 set menus, ranging from £35 to £65 for their tasting menu.


I’m delighted to have worked with Farzi cafe and securing them their first site in london. The location is fantastic, just a stone's throw away from Theatre Royal, capturing the pre and post-theatre crowds. I have no doubt the restaurant will be a great success.” – Guy Marks, Senior Surveyor at Restaurant Property.
