[Bellevue, WA] “Focusing on the gourmet diner as well as the youth of India, Farzi Café aims to bring Indian cuisine back ‘in vogue,'” states the restaurant’s website.
“‘Farzi’ can have many connotations,” it continues. “But at Farzi Café, it has just one, ‘creating an illusion’ with its cuisine.”
Eater Seattle listed Farzi Cafe on its “Most Anticipated Seattle Restaurant Openings” list for Spring, 2023.
“This high-end Indian restaurant chain was founded by mega-restauranteur Zorawar Kalra and has outposts in Dubai, London, and Canada,” Eater Seattle adds. “The Bellevue location will be Farzi’s first U.S. footprint.”
“Everything about Farzi is big, showy, lavish, and on the verge of silliness: Even a London food critic who liked the food described it as ‘palate-flooding’ and ‘hectic excess.'”
Given British cuisine, a dash of salt would pretty much be viewed as excess.
With the promise of incorporating U.S. Pacific Northwest ingredients into traditional dishes, the modern (and franchisable) Indian bistro, Farzi Café, opened Mar. 29, 2023, in Bellevue.
