Harden's says

Originating in New Delhi in 2014, the Farzi Cafe chain from the House of Massive Restaurants now has nine branches across India and in Dubai. The London opening serves up traditional Indian dishes in a contemporary style - buzzwords from the PR include "post-molecular", "laboratory-style", "playfully inspired" and "sonic homogeniser" (it's used to make cocktails, apparently). The drinks list is called The Vedika Menu, which is apparently Sanskrit for “restoring knowledge” - in our experience, cocktails often do the exact opposite...

Summary

In the heart of the West End, this decidedly glam newcomer scored better in our survey than the mixed rep it received in press reviews. The first UK outpost of a 30-strong international chain hailing from India and the Gulf, its repertoire of tapas-y offerings are very much of the funky, evolved school of Indian cuisine, and reporters salivate over “an amazing choice of inventive dishes” that are “far better than you would expect” in this touristy locale.

"The food is exquisite here, subtle seasoning, beautifully presented. The smoked goat is to die for. My only advice to anyone looking to dine here is to order dishes one or two at a time. The kitchen sends out your entire order at once, which means some dishes have become quite cold by the time you get around to eating them.. cold lobster was not nice."
