The food was great and it was a nice vibe. We came as a big group but the waiter wasn’t annoyed or anything. He was sweet the whole time and helped us out with anything we needed. We had a great birthday celebration there. I...would definitely recommend you drop in whether its for a special evening or just fancy some good food and good people.More

I have eaten at the Farzi Cafe a couple of time before lockdown and always had an excellent meal so I was looking forward to going back. I was eating early and alone so I thought I would just go with the pre-theatre supper which...at about £25 including a free drink was excellent value. The drink was their cocktail of the month and whilst it was a bit sweet for me, I can’t really complain! The food - as I remembered - was excellent. Extremely tasty and very well presented, served quickly by very pleasant staff. I had pre-warned them of an allergy and they were super vigilant and helpful about the menu and ingredients. I will definitely be returning.More

Where to start with this one. We tried to order off the theatre menu as we were well in time for this but were told by the waiters that this wasn’t possible unless everybody on the table ordered from the theatre menu even though it...doesn’t say anything to that effect. We went along with this looking forward to a high class experience. The food was actually quite good. I didn’t quite understand the Heston Blumenthal esque type dry ice affair on one of the dishes. It didn’t quite go with the standard of the service they are trying to portray especially when every waiter thought it was okay to reach across my face to deliver the food during my conversation. That combined with the same waiters off at one side banging the side of the bin to empty plates didn’t give the overall impression of a high class restaurant! Would I go again probably not no.More

Lovely modern interior. Would highly recommend the pre- theatre meal.2/3 course with a signature cocktail- Champagne based. The mangalorian prawn starter was excellent, the Zaffarani chicken was ok- found it lacked taste. The mains of the mustard salmon tikka was a little bit on the...fishy side. The chicken tikka masala was excellent. The deserts- both were good-coconut rice Kher and the fig& ginger pudding. Service was excellent. In and out in one hour which is perfect timing pre-theatre.More

Good drinks and decor, service was ok. Awful loos though (including water all over the floor!). The bar was a bit on the cold side.

We had the Sunday brunch, plenty of choice and excellent service. The food was delicious and well presented.Would visit again and recommend to friends and family. We don't eat out often so was a nice treat. Reasonably priced for London.

Me and a friend had been to the theatre nearby and had booked an early dinner for after. We had a really wonderful 3 course meal with a cocktail for £25! this is central london, staff and food excellent. Would highly recommend.

Lovely environment and décor, excellent service and nice food. Nice drinks which were unlimited for a 2 hour period! Chicken 65 and lamb shank were great, only critique is that the food could have had more spice - the lamb tasted close to a roast...dinner gravy sauce rather than the cashew & onion sauce stated. Would definitely recommend a visit!More
