Chinese
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).

Based on the colourful website we expected a little more from both the food and the ambiance.

I absolutely loved my time at Fatt Punditt. Firstly the staff are lovely and welcoming which always makes for a nice experience.
We opted for the chicken momo- Came with 2 delicious sauces -completely different from each other but equally as tasty
Starter was the spinach dish with yoghurt which was a mix of different tastes and textures but complemented each other very well.
Lamb chops were cooked to perfection and everyone should try them- good size and cooked to perfection.
I didn't love the chicken Manchurian as I've had better elsewhere however it was still tasty.
Lastly the delicious brownie- Another must have
I have recommended the restaurant to friends and family.

Fantastic food! The goat momo took me right back to Mumbai. The fish curry, burnt ginger rice and chicken lollipop were amazing . We went there for lunch and the food was soooooo good we decided to take a another whole order back home with us for dinner. Will definitely be going back .

Nice food packed with flavour. Some of the best lamb chops I've ever had. Rather expensive for what it is but well worth a try.

I have been following Fatt Punditt on Instagram for ages and the eat out to help out extension offer made me book it. The food was amazing. The momos were piping hot and tasty, we actually ordered more. The prawns flavoursome and soft shell crab was great.
We ordered so much food and everything was great. The spinach dish which we would normally never order as its spinach was probably the best dish we ordered. We stuck to the mocktails which were tasty.
The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful esp in these tough times.
The sizzling brownie was incredible and I honestly cant wait to go back for dinner again.

We started off with the guava and blackcurrant mocktails which were absolutely wonderful. Both were unique in flavour and super refreshing.
As portions are quite small the restaurant recommend ordering 5-6 items for 2 people. We went for the beef momos, crackling spinach, monkfish curry, ginger rice and lamb chops. We thought everything tasted great and well balanced, especially the monkfish curry. The lamb chops were also really well cooked, with a great amount of char but still remaining nice and juicy. We could have done without the momos though, as we didn’t think they were anything spectacular. We then got the sizzling brownie to finish, which seemed like an odd choice for dessert at an Indochinese restaurant but it was delicious and a super indulgent way to finish the meal.
Overall, the food is great and for the quality and location the prices aren’t too unreasonable, expect about £30pp. I would say the decor and presentation of the food could be improved but that’s not something that’ll keep me from going again.

Incredible food, really delicious enjoyed it all. My only criticism would be that some of the portions come in 3 (e.g 3 dumplings, 3 wings) for sharing it would make more sense for them to be an even number. Would recommend for a nice casual date night/lunch.

Food was delicious and service great, but felt like the price was slightly on the high side. Overall it came to £50 pp and we’d each had 2 beers each and 8 dishes to share (bread and rice counting as dishes)

Food was super. Momos were lovely, the goat in particular, and the other two dishes that really stood out were the monkfish curry and venison. Veg sides were great too, and not lacking in flavour! Only minor issue was that some of the dishes came a little too quickly, so our table was full and we were rushing to finish some to make space! Overall excellent and will return.

Excellent food. Lamb chops are amazing. I would prefer more spice. Momos are nice. Noodles come as a small plate but nicely spiced. They have a little kick.

Excellent food but portions are somewhat on the small side so value for money could be better. One of my favourite restaurants in London and make sure to try the sizzling brownie but stay away from the Manchurian Chicken!
