Farzi Cafe Jaipur Reveiw

Farzi Cafe Jaipur/ Farzified

There was a lot of buzz and anticipation during the last few months among the food circle on the opening of Farzi Cafe in Jaipur. Farzi Cafe has created a big name over a short period of time with its chain of restaurants having a novel menu and cosmopolitan & stylish interiors. The hip urban crowd loves Farzi cafe because it offers more than just a restaurant.

Owner of Farzi Cafe is Zorawar Kalra, son of a famous Indian chef Jiggs Kalra who like Sanjeev Kapoor, Gaggan Anand, and Vikas Khanna has made Indian cuisine popular the world over. The literal meaning of the word Farzi is “unreal”. The way Farzi Cafe sees itself is “creating the illusion”. In their own words, Farzi Cafe presents Indian cuisine where culinary art meets the alchemy of modern presentations and cooking techniques like molecular gastronomy to absorb the guest into the ultimate gastronomic illusion.

What makes Farzi Cafe special?

It’s difficult to describe Farzi Cafe. It’s a unique fusion of a cafe and lounge serving Indian cuisine with a twist. The underlying concept behind this restaurant chain is “molecular gastronomy”; a fad like many others. I have experienced Farzi Cafe at UB City in Bangalore last year. Sharing pictures from my visit.

Farzi Cafe opened its door to the public in Jaipur recently at Hotel Radisson, MI Road. I heard mixed reviews which gave me good reasons to explore. Apparently, it’s been running packed and busy. I visited Farzi Cafe along with friends on a Sunday evening with prior booking.

In comparison to Farzi Cafe in Bangalore, the atmosphere in Jaipur outlet is understated with somber interiors. It somehow recreates ambience of a lounge. Whether that’s good or bad, I will leave this for the visitors to decide.

Farzi Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating; latter for those who love open air. Despite this, it can seat at max 150-200 pax. I must appreciate the choice of music being played here by the DJ who dished out hits from 90’s and early 2000’s. Played a tad louder, you might find it difficult to converse. But overall, music sets the ambience.

The food tasted familiar having been to Farzi Cafe in Bangalore as mentioned above. Dal Chawal Arancini is their most loved creation and it’s no surprise why it is so.

Ras Malai Tres leches is a real treat.

Regular Indian food consisting of Paneer, Dal Makhni was good as well. Parle G Cheesecake was too much to handle and unless you are a cheesecake fan, you are unlikely to fall in love with it.

There are no grouses when it comes to food. In fact, it is quite consistent with the one in Bangalore. Service despite being a weekend with packed tables was quick. Presentation of the food was excellent though it’s not novel since cafe in Jaipur has been serving in a similar way for a while. Socials and Farzi Cafe have been innovating presentation of Indian food but others have caught up and the delayed launch of Farzi Cafe in Jaipur means it’s no more a novelty.

So how do I sum up my experience at Farzi Cafe in Jaipur? Well, I will say it’s better than average. It didn’t sweep me off the floor on any of these parameters – food, ambience, and service. It’s crisp and worth a visit.  The choice of site is excellent and there is every chance that Farzi Cafe will continue to be popular among the youth. I’m sure weekends will always be packed. If you want to try something similar, there’s a great place on the other side of MI Road – Jaipur Adda. They too have something similar to Parle G Cheesecake! Here are pictures of Jaipur Adda.

  1. Nice one Arv! You have been creating so many more reasons to revisit Jaipur. I always had a fetish for spending time in lounges, they are quite relaxed and laid back and one can take their own time to talk and eat unlike traditional restaurants. So, if it looks like a lounge even partly, it s a go-go for me.

    Love the name ‘Farzi’ here. It reminds me of a Kanpur based sweet shop called ‘Thaggu Ke Laddu’, with its tagline – ‘Aisa koi saga nahin, jisko humne thaga nahin’.. That’s one of the best taglines I have ever come across… Lovely read, as always… 🙂

    1. Rajat, certainly the restaurant recreates the ambiance of a lounge. That way I think you will love it. The way world is evolving, traditional restaurants are dead. In fact there are hardly any good restaurants opening here​ in Jaipur. It’s all casual dining places that are opening at a very fast pace. Well, Farzi cafe is quite late entrant as it has been around for many years in other cities. I have heard about thagu ke laddu before.well that’s an excellent way to brand themselves. Guaranteed to create an impact. Are you from Kanpur, Rajat?

    1. Thank you. It’s extremely popular. I’m not sure if the momentum will die down or pull itself. Where are you guys based?
