Michelin-recognized bistro Farzi Café officially opened its first Canadian location in October, bringing modern spice to Mississauga, Ontario.

The world-renowned and award-winning restaurant spans 4,000 square feet and includes an indoor dining room and a huge outdoor patio at its Square One location.

MasterChef India judge Zorawar Kalra, known as the “Prince of Indian Cuisine,” is the name behind Farzi and the person who brought the concept to life.

Kalra’s goal is to bring Indian cuisine “back in vogue.”

According to Kalra, Farzi Café London was officially recognized by the Michelin Guide in 2019.

As for the bar, award-winning London mixologist Din Jusuf is the mastermind behind the cocktail menu, coming up with a fun and engaging concept for guests.

Each “ultrasonic” cocktail is inspired by astrological signs and made using carefully selected tinctures, herbs, and spices.
