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).

                                            Both food and service are consistently excellent here - after multiple visits, we've never had a bad experience. The portion sizes correspond perfectly with the amount of flavour and quality of the ingredients in each dish. The staff are attentive and make good recommendations about pairing mains and sides; they seem to genuinely care about each customer's experience. Exceptional value for money.

                                            All the food was flavourful but marked down as it was very greasy. The lamb chops were best as they were not greasy. The music was really loud which made it difficult to talk over dinner

                                            The music could be lower. Although sitting right across from my friend, I was shouting to be heard.

                                            Loved our first visit to Fatt Pundit - AMAZING food and service! Too many lovely dishes to choose from. We did feel slightly rushed through (like many restaurants!) and were paying the bill within the hour - would have liked to feel more relaxed.

                                            I had been wanting to try FP for ages and pleased I finally made it. The food was good, and ambience was okay - would have been better if it was busier, but for early Jan 22 it was okay. The service was a bit “over attentive” - looking to clear glasses before we had finished and not giving us enough time to look at menus. And the food initially came out a bit too quickly - the momos literally arrived within about 2 mins of ordering. We asked for the pace to slow down and they obliged. This probably would be less of an issue when the restaurant is busier. Overall the food was pretty tasty so I would go back. There’s lots more on the menu I’d like to try.

                                            Most the dishes ordered were very tasty!! Service was friendly but could be slightly better when recommending dishes but other than that, will definitely be back!!

                                            Marvellous food, very reminiscent of the Calcutta Chinese cuisine it is trying to recreate. The portions were larger than we expected and we ended up over-ordering. We would have appreciated more of a warning that the small plates were not in fact all that small. It would also have been better if the rice came before the other plates -- getting the rice last meant that we had to wait to start eating the vegetable dishes, which came over the course of ten minutes or so.

                                            Great food as usual and lovely restaurant. The mock chicken was slightly over done but very good overall!

                                            the food here is beautiful! all the veggie/vegan dishes were delicious, my friend enjoyed them over their meat and seafood dish. I would definitely be returning, and will have a dessert next time. The only minor let down was the service was a bit awkward. They kept interrupting mid conversation when they could have just cleared the table a bit more inconspicuously. And we were appeared to be fine and would interrupt to check. Apart from that amazing. & I will be back for the food for sure.

                                            We initially visited the soho branch and had such a great experience we decided to take my dad. Ended up in Covent Garden and unfortunately the service and food both fell short. Not the best experience. Everything came miles apart and the food was cold by the time the bread arrived (even those didn’t arrive together). Okra fries were missed off the initial order and then when they did arrive about 45 minutes after everything else, they looked like a smaller portion. It’s a real shame…we left disappointed.
