Founded in Gurgaon near New Delhi in 2014, Farzi Café serves Indian and global classic dishes “transformed by cutting-edge molecular techniques”.
Its launch at 8 Haymarket will be the 10th outpost for the company, and it will serve a menu of Indian tapas; soup; salads; main courses and desserts, overseen by India’s celebrated chef Saurabh Udinia.
Signature dishes will include the likes of dal chawal arancini (Indian-inspired arancini made with dal, served with papad and chutney); mini shells of sweet and sour pumpkin stopped with chutney foam and crisp okra salad; and tandoori mild mushrooms with truffle and walnut dust.
The restaurant will also offer a range of ‘molecular cocktails’.
Part of the Massive Restaurants group, Farzi Café is owned by the ‘Czar of Indian cuisine’ Jiggs Kalra and his son, MasterChef India judge and GQ Man of the Year Zorawar Kalra.
Modern Indian fine dining is well received in London, as seen by the well-received UK debut of Michelin-starred Indian Accent in Mayfair at the end of last year.
