Chinese

Top tags:

Casual
Originating from Kolkata, this unique cuisine was invented when the Hakka people migrated to India from the Chinese province of Canton, bringing with them their culinary treasures. Incorporating traditional Chinese cooking techniques with the spices of India to create something both new yet familiar, Indo Chinese is now an integral part of Indian cuisine.

Playfully named Fatt Pundit it’s a combination of the common Chinese surname ‘Fatt’ with the Indian word ‘Pundit’ (a scholar).

Don’t come here without trying the crackling spinach!! We went for the Manchurian chicken and dry chilli rib eye and it was absolutely delicious! The waitresses were attentive and smiley. The atmosphere was great for conversation catch up and not too loud. We’ll be back here in the new year- I’ve already booked the table!!

Lunchtime visit and not too busy but still a good atmosphere. Food was excellent , would highly recommend the rabbit wontons and the shredded venison. The deep fried okra was a revelation and the crispy spinach was something different and well worth ordering.

Will definitely be back.

First visit and we were really impressed by the interesting menu of small plates. We sat at the counter and chatted to the manager. Very friendly people and delicious food.
We will return!

Wish they didn’t put a single random man next to us, a couple when there were many tables free. We wanted a quite birthday meal in peace. There were many tables empty.

The food was decent
Service was 100% perfect

Really good food! We especially enjoyed the momos and the crackling spinach. The waitresses were to stressful though - it felt like they’re wanted to take our plates even though we hadn’t finished. The music was also pretty stressful - both contributed to that the ambience wasn’t so nice.

Great food at Fatt Pundit! Only feedback is that it is a bit too pricey for its portion size

Very nice service and nice food, the only thing to improve it is that all the dishes were very spicy, I asked for non spicy recommendations but even the rice was hot!

My wife's b-day dinner, coming from abroad. Table below next to 2 crowded tables with TGF people next to the kitchen! Though better than looking into the WC!! Service ad hoc but nice waitress when available. Worst dinner in 20 years of marriage.

Both the service and food were outstanding. The gentleman that served us was so lovely and knowledgeable! He answered all questions about the heritage of the restaurant and recommended the beef dish to compliment our drinks of choice. I’ve already recommended the Fatt Pundit to all my family and friends and I can not wait to go back!

We were given a great welcome by the friendly staff and from the minute we sat down we were thoroughly pampered. The flavours were sensational and my venison was deliciously rich. The sizzling chocolate brownie was one of the many highlights. I suggest that anyone who has not been here adds it to their to do list.

Good for friends get together, didn't see much of the chinese influence in the plates, rather there were both chinese and indian dishes I'd say albeit certainly Indian should not be read as "curry house Indian" Overall it was a good experience, no waiting to get our table, decently priced wine and overall affordable dinner for a friends catch-up. Only change I'd recommend is to keep the kitchen open for longer, we managed to squeeze in one last dish but could have been more

Food was fantastic! The staff stayed open a bit late so our group could have a meal after leaving a late work meeting. Everyone was so nice, and the food was so interesting. Can't wait to go back!

Food was great and delicious! Even received free noodles due to religious event happening! however the waiter explained after it comes as its made and not together by which the food went cold also the aircon was on full blast which made the food and ourselves go cold.. this was the downpoint. Otherwise food was yummy and nice along with service and ambiance!

I live in Soho and because restaurants are so busy and so commercial, its unusual to get a meal which really stands out. But Fatt Pundit truly is excellent. Food that tastes so delicious that you hate the waiter for taking your empty plate away after you've finished. So many beautiful flavours and textures. Friendly service and nice wines that complement the food. Definitely recommended.
