Farzi Café is best described as a gastronomic experience amalgamating traditional global cuisine with regional influences, local flavours, contemporary presentations and unique culinary styles. Showcasing a signature flair for reinvention that put them firmly on the city’s culinary map, the team behind Farzi Café sees two design houses join forces to create the ultimate contemporary Indian interiors.
From the colourful potency of peacock features to a dramatic wall mural depicting a powerful crowned goddess – the new-look Farzi Café reflects its culture-rich, vibrant cuisine.
Setting stylish eyes first on Farzi Café City Walk, the brand-new interior space is bursting with light – reflected off pale marble-topped tables, warm cream walls and vibrant leather-backed seats. These splashes of neutrality make way for bursts of multiple shades of green and coral seen across the restaurant.
Rising out of the central bar, instead of floral arrangements seen in some classic restaurants, the design teams have chosen to nod to a more natural declaration of style with arrangements of long pampas grass and the exquisitely patterned beauty of peacock features or mor pankh. As the national bird of India, a peacock’s feathers are regarded as an auspicious symbol and believed to bring good luck and prosperity into a space.
Moving down to the polished stone floor, contemporary tiles are stamped with a regal design reminiscent of a fleur de lis bringing us back to Europe and celebrating India’s long history palaces and nobility. Like everything in this modern mash up of interior design, the touch is light, letting the eyes move from one reflective surface to another. Other sections of intricate tile work are seen on pillars and the bar playing with traditional, rustic and contemporary Indian design motifs.
From the new weekly weekend brunch inspired by the Indian English tradition of ‘tiffin’ or mid-morning meal, the much-ordered takeaway menu meaning city residents can savour spiced up molecular gastronomy from the sofa, to its soon to be launched Chaatwala cart and constantly evolving A La Carte menu of modern Indian bistro classics – the new interiors are just one reason to visit Farzi Café.
Coming up this winter, Dubai diners can expect more tasty tricks and turns. We had a preview and suggest some dishes that are a must try. The Minestrone Shorba, the beef tikka, paneer tikka, creamy Dahi kebab and golden arancini made from rice and dal are delicious.
We also like the pillowy bao buns stuffed with chilli-laced paneer, khichdi made with nutty pearl barley that reminds you of mum’s cooking and Rajasthani classic curry, kahdi. For desserts, we enjoyed the saffron infused sweet risotto. Almost everything on the menu is a delight.
