Firozian Indian Tea House is an unpretentious Indian restaurant owned and personally managed by the affable Mr. Singh - an interesting Indian fellow who keeps his guests entertained with his storytelling from his vast knowledge of everything under the sun, his proficiency in chess, fortune telling (if he is in the mood) and his overall charm. Customers can choose a cozy booth where they can remove their footwear and lounge in the comfy throw pillows. Privacy is enhanced by sliding a curtain between booths. Friends and guests are thrown into the lore of the Arabian Nights.

(Mar 14, 2014) We hang out here all the time with my yoga group of students and teachers.... Nice place to talk and the desserts are really tasty... Gulab jamun and kheer..... The red bean dish, makhani is perfect with their egg fried rice.... Chai tea is great... The owners always take time to join the group..... Cozy and comfy atmosphere makes you want to stay bit longer than you should.

(Mar 14, 2014) If you are looking for a nice comfortable place to hangout, come to Firozian! The food is extremely tasty and healthy. One of best Indian places in Cebu. I recommend this place to my friends. Also try their tea, makhani and vegetarian Samosa. You'll love it.

(Mar 13, 2014) The food is really tasty.. and guess what? No MSG! Inexpensive, but good! The owner does readings too. It's a place where you don't have to blow thousands to enjoy good Indian food and hang out with your friends. Can't wait to go back :)

(Feb 28, 2014) Firozian is a good introduction to Indian food in Cebu. Two things to be cautious. First is when they ask you the level of spicy, mild does not mean Filipino mild. I ended up covered in sweat while trying to finish my butter chicken curry with roti. Second is expect to sit on the floor which has a certain atmospheric appeal but can be a turn off when the waitress tries to clean the eating area opposite you with a broom and the dust flies in your face. I never had the Indian sweets before so I tried their version of leche flan (fried!) but I found too sweet for me. Still I hope to try their other dishes, maybe somewhere there is a dish that makes me want to travel all the way from Lapu Lapu to Fuente!

(Feb 26, 2014) I have fallen in love with Indian Cuisine thanks to Firozian. We eat here quite regularly, and it's always good. A wonderfully snug environment with great food and generous portions. Omnomnom!.

(Feb 19, 2014) Let's set the context first: Cebu City isn't necessarily the place to go if you want Indian food... it only has a max of about 4-5 Indian restaurants. And also, I've lived in places where I was spoiled with great and varied Indian cuisines and restaurants. Having said that, for the few Indian restaurants that's around, you can get a bit of India at Firozian. Their drinks are especially good, with a nod going to their salted lassi and chai. A bigger nod goes to their kheer (Indian rice pudding). It's a great place to gather with friends, sit on the floor, and enjoy the company over samosas. Also a good intro to Indian food in Cebu City.

(Feb 10, 2014) I love the wifi, the pillows and Indian sweets plus the affordable teas here. Recently they have expanded and there are more things you can do here like playing chess, cards, read books, etc. Turkish coffee reading is somehow interesting too. I'm excited for the upcoming discourses to be done here soon.
