Quirky yet elegant Farzi Cafe aims to bring Indian cuisine into vogue well and we are vogue art so now you know why this cafe made it out from every other, and it’s doing a great job of it!
The restaurant was established by late Indian food expert Jiggs Kalra and his entrepreneur son (who are also responsible for the wildly successful Masala Library).
Farzi Cafe has the same approach to Indian food as Masala Library, focusing on molecular gastronomy. However, the food is more experimental and affordable, as the restaurant is aimed at a younger crowd.
Look for dishes like tempura fried prawns, duck samosa, and asparagus and water chestnut korma. Bands and DJs regularly perform there on weekends too, so you can party on until late. (Note that children aren’t permitted in the restaurant on Friday and Saturday).

It’s made from basmati rice, cooked with a special blend of special spices in a mud pot.
