Indian cuisine in a delightfully modern avatar at Farzi Cafe, CP

Fusion cuisine is at the center stage of the gastronomical revolution currently underway throughout the world. As people mix and mingle in ever greater numbers globally, fusion cuisine acts as the bridge for evolving taste buds. It is also an exciting journey for people who want to savor something new and magical, and something beyond the ordinary. A perfect example where fusion cuisine is a daily routine is Farzi Cafe, an innovative Indian bistro that utilizes a modernist approach to Indian food. The focus is on blending traditional Indian cuisine with popular components of international cuisine, all while relying on the concepts of molecular gastronomy to create an unparalleled dining experience.

Food & Drinks – The one and only mission at Farzi Cafe is to bring Indian cuisine back “in-vogue”, which it does by reengineering Indian food to not just satisfy the taste buds, but also influence the visual and olfactory experiences. The word “Farzi” essentially means “fake” in Urdu, and that’s exactly what this restaurant creates – a grand gastronomic illusion that allows patrons to experience a one of its kind, perky, modernist and genre defining Indian dining. The menu is handwritten and doodled, which adds to the classical charms of this place. You can expect the food and its presentation to be delightfully unfamiliar and hugely satisfying, as the restaurant is the brainchild of father-son duo, Jiggs Kalra and Zorawar Kalra. While ZorawarKalra is regarded as the prince of Indian cuisine, his father JiggsKalra is the father & Czar of Indian cuisine. Farzi Cafe has succeeded in its mission to showcase the evolution of Indian cuisine and putting it permanently on the global gastronomical map. The father-son duo also has other successful ventures to their credit such as the ‘Masala Library’ and ‘Made in Punjab’, which are multi-award winning brand verticals of premium Fine-Dining Restaurants. Farzi cafe stocks a comprehensive range of drinks & beverages including everything from vodka, gin tequila, whisky, cocktails to champagne &sparkling wine, scotch, and beer.

Ambience – The place has a high energy ambience that comes with a spacious lobby, a dance floor, dark wood furniture, high-tech ambient music and a plethora of quaint objet d’art. Its overall look and feel clearly justifies its tag of “modern Indian tapas bar and bistro”.

Service–Good service and polite staff. There is a sense of promptness among the staff and many things get done automatically without asking, which elevates the dining experience.
