Indian restaurant Farzi Café, by restauranteur Zorawar Kalra, recently opened the doors of its second outlet in Dubai, at Mall of the Emirates. The modern spice bistro is strategically located on the second floor of the mall, adjacent to VOX Cinemas and very close to the parking.
Farzi Café first arrived in the UAE in 2016, opening at City Walk. In the past three years, the restaurant has built a great reputation with its chic, contemporary take on the Indian cuisine. True to its name, which means “creating an illusion,” Farzi Café is today known for its unique culinary philosophy. It offers guests a sensory, high-energy gourmet experience, amalgamating traditional global and Indian classics and infusing dishes using innovative techniques, molecular alchemy and creative presentations.
“We are delighted with the ongoing success of Farzi Café in the UAE. Dubai is a strategic growth market for us, being one of the key centres of international trade, leisure and a growing hub for gourmet cuisine. Dubai is the perfect melting pot of culture and traditions and we are constantly inspired by the synergies between the culinary culture of Arabia and India,” said Kalra, founder & managing director, Massive Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. (India).
“We are constantly innovating and evolving as a brand through extensive research & development to incorporate cutting edge cooking techniques, including molecular gastronomy and creative culinary art, using the best and most fresh ingredients. The result is food that is global in nature but with a progressive Indian and Arabic approach, something we feel has never been done before. We’re excited to see how UAE diners will respond to our second venue, at the new location within Mall of the Emirates, Dubai,” he added.
Offering a playful interpretation of ingredients and an immersive dining experience rich with Indian references, Farzi Café draws influence from the prolific work of the late Jiggs Kalra, the creative talent behind some of the top restaurants in India.
