Farzi Café is an Indian restaurant located in the second phase of Citywalk in Dubai. They are best known for their contemporary presentations, culinary styles, and the homey ambiance.
It is a quirky, chic, modern Indian café where guests can enjoy a sensory experience through the finest modern Indian cuisine and cooking techniques like molecular gastronomy.
I remember it being the talk of the town when it first launched and even the rulers of Dubai were there to visit that added more to my curiosity and excitement.
And a few months after it opened, I was able to finally visit it yesterday. From outside, it looked really nice and when I entered, I was even more impressed at the interior. One thing that caught my attention was the funny quotes in the frames that they hung on the wall. The chandeliers and the lights on the walls are also amazing and definitely eye-catching.
We then checked the menu and again, the pages are filled with puns and funny cartoons. Since we arrived at around 10 am, it was still in time for breakfast so we settled for a few of their best sellers.
First, we tried the quesadillas. It was so cool when it arrived because it was served in this birdcage like tray. It was so tasty and I would definitely order it again.
Next up was the eggs benedict and this time, although there was no fancy plate or tray, it looked really nice and it instantly became one of my breakfast favorites. The eggs were cooked just how I like it and I can’t be any happier.
We also had the beef with potatoes and as expected, it was also highly pleasant to the taste.
Next up was the Power Nut Poha. This is just regular sausages but instead of the normal egg, they used one cute quail egg. I love the presentation but there’s nothing fancy in this one but it was definitely appetizing.
In between, we ordered some drinks and we had this refreshing cucumber cooler and the popcorn drink. It’s new and unique for me but I quite like it.
For the dessert, we only tried their version of the French toast and although it looked simple, it was enticing and luscious.
Overall, even though we didn’t really order the dishes that had molecular gastronomy, I personally really loved the Farzi dining experience. The quality of the food is top-notch, the service is impeccable and they were knowledgeable about the products and I love the look and feel of the whole restaurant in general.
I would unquestionably recommend it for the food especially the breakfast offerings and I think the molecular gastronomy is just a bonus. If you haven’t been, then you should clearly check it out as I believe it’s one of the great restaurants in the city.
