"NO DREAM IS TOO BIG, NO DESTINATION IS OUT OF REACH"
Zahra Khan is the sole founder of two of London’s best-loved culinary destinations – Feya Café and DYCE. At just 29 years of age, she is a mother of two daughters, an exemplary graduate of the iconic Tante Marie Culinary Academy and a pioneer in the movement towards female equality in business.
She opened her debut eatery Feya Café on Bond Street just months after the birth of her first daughter in 2018. Following unprecedented success, the award-winning DIY dessert parlour and interior masterpiece DYCE was opened in quick succession, followed by flagship Feya Knightsbridge in December 2019.
Combining two of Zahra’s loves, both Feya Café and DYCE channel a beautiful blend of art and food to create an escape for those visiting to unwind and dine on colourful artistic dishes in an enchanting setting.
Her extraordinary talents as an entrepreneur, chef and mother have earned her nominations for the NatWest Everywomen Awards 2020 (The Artemis Award), London Business Mother of the Year 2020 (Venus Awards), Business Owner of the Year and Businesswoman of the Year (National Women's Business Awards 2020) and Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 (Federation of Small Businesses UK).
Originally from Pakistan, Zahra knows first-hand how heavy the weight of tradition sits on Asian women’s shoulders. She was fighting on two fronts: against the traditions of her culture and the stereotypes set out by a society determined to pigeonhole Asian women as home cooks, not industry-leading chefs.
Zahra now employs a 75% female workforce across her three restaurants, but she knows there’s still a wealth of untapped talent in underrepresented communities.
Empowering women just starting on their career path, Zahra has now established the Feya Cares initiative, with 10% of profits from sales going to the Young Women’s Trust. Learn more about Feya Cares here.
Ambitious, fearless and uncompromising in her vision for her business and the industry, Zahra Khan is the one-woman powerhouse that’s changing the face of London’s restaurant scene forever.
Zahra and the rest of the Feya team are proud to have worked and collaborated with many brands, organisations and charities. From hosting events, to catering events, Feya continues to bring joy and inspiration to all their partners.
