***For large table booking above 4 guests kindly call the restaurant phone number, bookings above 4 guests require deposit****

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).

    Every dish had the perfect level of spice. One of the best meals I’ve ever had topped off with the brownie dessert. Next time I’m in London I’m for sure coming back to this restaurant

    The welcome was really poor and nobody looked up from a screen to say hi, or anything like that. We were left waiting by the door and nobody explained why this was We were then taken downstairs. Had to ask to order drinks had to ask to order food. The food was okay, but the table is too small to put the food on it Had to to ask twice for our Bill.

    I would really recommend this restaurant, many of the dishes are spicy but that’s to be expected. The coconut curry was absolutely amazing and definitely a good dish to have on the table to cool the heat down. The potatoes were also a really lovely mild dish. The dishes are expensive but the food is definitely worth it and all tastes very fresh. Overall a really lovely dining experience and I would definitely go again just for coconut curry alone.

    This was our first time at the Fatt Pundit but it won't be our last. The service was welcoming and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the range of vegetarian options and the variety of the menu. Good value as well and perfect location for our trip to the theatre.

    Food was delicious, service was quite slow but that may be because it was a lunchtime. There seems to have been some repair works of sorts going on so there was some loud power tools at times, and also a really obnoxious man who came in to complain and decided it was appropriate to raise his voice and ruin other people’s experience. Otherwise, we’d definitely come back as we enjoyed the food and variety. Definitely more dishes we’d like to try and a fairly reasonable price!

    This is our 4th visit to this restaurant, and we usually love the food and service here. Sadly, we had a disappointing experience yesterday. The service was very slow, we asked for tea cups multiple times, and our server brought them out after 20-30 minutes. We had to send back two dishes that we ordered, and one of the dishes (Hakka noodles) was cold when it was served to us. The quality of food is not as good as it used to be, compared to just a few months ago.

    This is my second visit. The first was to their Soho branch. This visit underlined the fact that one would only really come for the food. The food is standard decent Indian Chinese with one or two standouts like the lamb ribs. The only reason I guess they can charge their prices is because no one else is doing this food. Or probably it’s due to the locations. The service is more polite at this branch than I experienced at Soho and the decor is better and there is a bit more space. It does not stop them however from putting the 2s tables, way too close to each other so you can’t help but overhear every word of the next table’s conversation and business- which puts a dampener on your own. If you just want to come here for the food , concentrate on eating it and then leave that’s okay. Don’t come with a view to catch up with the person opposite.

    The first time I went was good, the second time was okay. Did not have the option to get tap water, had to buy bottled for 4.50. Felt a bit rushed, but overall it was okay. The Malabar curry was not as good when I ordered it again, but the Szechuan Honey Duck is a must try--so good!

    The server didn't tell us about the pre-theatre menu, completely dismissed my partners lactose intolerance, tried to upsell constantly including dishes that included dairy. Got the drinks order wrong. Absolutely the worst service I've ever had.

    Arrived early and did have to wait for my table,but was seated a couple of minutes before the 8:15 time of my reso. Service was good and attentive with being overly so. The popcorn cauliflower was outstanding, stayed crisp for the entire meal. The monkfish curry was very tasty, I prefer a hotter curry which this wasn’t, but it still tasted good. I will likely try and return her next visit to London

    Food was good, but overpriced. Poor service, she kept disturbing us while we were eating, the waitress tried to overcharge us at the end after forcing us to leave the table after 1.5hours with no warning.

    Really great food, decent portions for small plates, my favourite dishes were the paneer, duck pancakes, and the monkfish curry. Could do with more mint sauce for the okra. Wasn't too keen on the tamarind potatoes. The staff were very good at topping up your tap water too. Wish I had space to try dessert!

    Awful service - they were trying so hard to get rid of us even though there were multiple tables still eating, food was fine but definitely no where good enough to outweigh the terrible service. Really would have wanted to remove the ‘discretionary’ service charge to be honest

    Great food, if you’re veggie this is the place to come for lots of yummy sides and small plates! Great vibe and outstanding service by our waitress Ruby. It was also my mums birthday meal and unprompted they brought out a cake and candle for her, going above and beyond. Would recommend and will definitely be coming again.

    Booked a table same day for the evening at the Covent Garden branch. Good service, delicious food with decent portions would recommend around 4 portions for 2 people. The chocolate brownie dessert was lovely and completed the meal. We had the goat momo which was a nice starter with two sauces accompanying it and had 3 portions. Would recommend the sticky vegetables, honey duck and lamb chops (which were well flavoured and didn’t need any accompanying sauce). Also had the beef noodles which were nice, would go for the spicier version than mild.

    Amazing food and good value overall. My only qualm was having to sign a waiver upon arrival due to my nut allergies. Just instilled a sense of mistrust and unease - why would a restaurant need this signed if they have strong food safety measures? That was the only negative experience which did taint the start of the visit, but the cocktail was phenomenal, the food was lovely, and the staff were nice.

    Great spot behind the hubbub of the piazza. Great food, too. For next time I’d mix up the fried food with rice and noodles, but still enjoyed what we had - momos, okra, paneer, crab and popcorn cauliflower.
