Farhana Indian Restaurant reviews



By Mike S.

I have been to the Farhana about 25 times and have never been disappointed. You can find it on the roundabout near Barking Park with the huge modern sculpture called “The Catch.” Prices are ridiculously low. The service is pretty good and the owner is very friendly - He knows all his customers by their first names. (Food is great too - They always get a tip from me). Give them a try !

There have been some great improvements recently to the already excellent Farhana. They have had a new door and large windows installed. The tacky hand-written signs have gone, as have the permanently closed blinds. The inside has changed a bit too, leaving a more spacious dining area. (they recently catered for a party of 36, borrowing extra tables from the Chinese next door!)the haphazard approach to the menu has gone too back to normal a la carte. Although still unlicensed - Bring your own beer/wine - nowadays you can always get sparkling water, served with ice and lemon or choose from a range of soft drinks. The food itself and friendly service remain top notch. They have also introduced a brand new desert menu.

The Farhana still isn’t much to look at from the outside - Smallish and unimposing - There are lots of smarter restaurants in the area. On looks alone, this would not be your obvious choice. 2 things make it special - the reliability and sheer quality of the food and Farouk, the owner - Such a nice person and a perfect host - Very interested in Indian food and restaurants in general …. “have you tried that new one opposite the station yet”, he asks - Any good?"

The same chef has been there for years and some of the a la carte dishes are his own inventions. Farouk will proudly explain how a particular item was created. He may quietly reveal its secret ingredient and explain how it was “tweaked to perfection” to fit in with local taste. Favourite Dish: I recommend Aloo Chat to start - Then perhaps try their “chicken Tikka Asari” or Chicken Rezala, which I absolutely love! It’s chef’s own recipe …. A tangy, creamy, yoghurt based, hot and sour sauce poured over pieces of tender, succulent, marinated chicken breast.
