The name Farzi means “creating an illusion”. While there are some pretty entertaining presentation-tricks up their sleeve, the food at Farzi Cafe is also quite lovely.
Here’s everything we had – I’ve marked out the dishes we particularly loved. Those are the dishes you absolutely cannot miss when you visit Farzi:
- Mango Yoghurt Shots
- Fresh Burrata Salad – AED 57
- Tempura Dynamite Prawns – AED 49 (fave)
- Deconstructed Shepherd’s Pie – AED 62 (fave)
- Dal Chawal Arancini – AED 31
- CTM: Chicken Tikka Masala – AED 52 (fave)
- Gulab Jamun – AED 52
CTM is one of my favourite dishes – if its on the menu, I WILL order it. Sometimes, restaurants get it right, most times though, something is always missing. Farzi have NAILED their Chicken Tikka Masala recipe – so much so, that its prompted me to go on an obsessive quest to find my own perfect CTM recipe. So if any of you out there have a recipe you’ll swear by, help a sister out! :)
We went on a weekday for lunch, and the restaurant was full – always a good sign.
Overall, Farzi Cafe is a good, and impressive option to keep in your back-pocket for a celebration, or date night!
