Really lovely space, cosy and not too busy on the night. Very attentive staff. Lovely menu - good choice of dishes. Everything we had was delicious- kid goat momos were amazing. Mains were great too but portion sizes on the smaller side so order one more dish than you think you might need if hungry - sharing plates. The lamb chops were heavenly as was the crackling spinach - an absolute delight. We finished with the sizzling brownie - beats a traditional brownie hands down. All in a really lovely meal - would definitely recommend and planning to return.

We have eaten around the world and this was simply wonderful food. Good spice, unique dishes, good cocktails. Small and in a great neighborhood.

The food was good, although quite spicy. However they brought all the food at once and extremely quickly, but took so long to bring the wine that we cancelled it and went elsewhere for drinks. Overall good value for money (although very little alcohol on our bill) but they didn't take Amex which was inconvenient. Would recommend for the food but not for the vibe and the service isn't amazing.

Portions are really small for the relatively high prices they're charging and the taste overall is decent nothing mind blowing.
Compared to other much highly regarded Indian/fusion restaurants , I found they are certainly over priced which makes me doubt I'll be visiting again.

Amazing restaurant.
Tables were a little small especially since the dishes are small you need to order a few “tapas” style.
Ambience was amazing staff very attentive.

Looking forward to going back.

Very tasty food. Service over lunch was ok - we went at lunch when there was hardly anyone. Portions aren't huge and I find £17 a bit expensive for a mid-week lunch so probably won't go there regularly but the crackling spinach is very very good.

We met here for a 2 person lunch - Weds 1.30pm. We were suprised to see only one other table in use- the place was really quite which worried me. I should not have being concerned- the air con was on- lovely and cool- fantastic calm atmosphere and you could hear yourself think/ talk.

We ordered a selection of MoMos, a fish curry and some lamb chops and all were SUPERB. Washed down with a couple of chilled beers- Perfect.

The staff were lovely and attentive.

I hope this place gets peoples support and truely its a great little restaurant that should do well with food of this quality.

Food was pretty good, we had 5 dishes between us which were all very tasty, the crackling spinach in particular. It's been tricky to get an evening booking here on a Friday so I booked weeks in advance for 6pm and as we were running a little late they reminded us we had the table until 7:30. We did finish by then but noticed there were quite a few tables empty by then which is a bit odd given the lack of availability online.

Good food served by good people. Would recommend the kale chart, chicken Manchurian, schezwan rice, prawns. The mango shrikhand dessert was good too and they have a nice range of local indian drinks including lassi and thums up !

This is an indian-chinese place.

Came to around £40 a head for drinks, food and dessert.

Would suggest you order a good mix as some dishes are very spicy.

Amazing food and service. Fairly busy on a Tuesday dinner.
The food reminded me the Chinese fast food available is India.
All dishes are carefully selected on the menu offering a blast of flavours. Can’t wait to return back.

This was GQ magazine's top choice for pre-theater dinner in the West End. Don't expect a fancy white linen restaurant, just the best food you'll have in a long time! Momo buns were spectacular, loved the curry sea bream, and a very reasonable price of 77 GBP for 2 people who stuffed themselves silly and drank 2 glasses of wine (service charge included).

The service is really good, but the food was nothing special. My favourite item was the crab and the panner dish. The Manchurian chicken was not as good as I was expecting. The mango lassi was lovely.

Absolutely delicious!

The lollipop chicken was amazing. We had to order another portion! Cruncy, tasty and slightly spicy!

The lamb chops were gorgeous. Super tender. Super tasty. Really enjoyed them.

The manchurian chicken was nice. Will try the rib eye dish next time!

The bread was delicious.

The watermelon juice was brilliant but needed ice!

Great food.

Service could have been better hence the 4 star. We did not feel welcomed when we entered.

The chef bringing out the food was however fantastic!

Food was good however the experience felt so rushed.
So all six dishes were out in ten minutes and staff kept clearing table at earliest opportunity.
Not allowed time to fully enjoy the experience.
Staff tending to address my male component opposed to me(female).
As a dining experience, I wouldn’t recommend.

12.5% service added to an already overpriced meal

Fantastic experience! We shared 5 dishes - the flavours were unique and everything was delicious. We sat at the counter and chatted with the owners - great story of bringing a unique flavour and type of cuisine to the city. Lovely people. We'll be back!

I would absolutely recommend the food. The lamb chops in particular. The service let it down especially being offered still or sparkling water five times while not being brought the drinks we ordered. May go back once the waiting staff have settled in.

When did Fatt Pundit ever deserve 2 star let alone 4 or 5 star reviews? The food, service and atmosphere were shambolic at best and deplorable at worst.

I booked there for my 60th birthday lunch with my son after a mention (no review) by Fay Maschler, the Evening Standard's food critic.

Our booking was for 1.45pm last Saturday. There were only 2 diners inside, and the Berwick Street building looked shabby.

However, on the back of the online rave reviews (!!??) we decided to enter.

We ordered: Lollypop chicken, beef and chicken momos for starters. Bream curry with fried rice and crab for our main courses.

The Lollipop Chicken was lovely but the momos had a peculiar medicinal /fragrant taste to them. I could not eat them so my son ate them all to be polite.

Along with the starters came the fried rice which should have obviously been served with the bream curry. I sent it back for later- it went up and down the dumbwaiter lift between the seating area and kitchen several times.

The restaurant became busier - but no more than 15 or 16 by the time our main courses arrived.

The waiting staff didn't have a clue which table ordered what,( I sat opposite dumbwaiter) and they looked confused when consulting the orders, and still the fried rice kept appearing on our table without the fish curry!

Bream Curry sickly sweet, and crab was mushy and tasteless. Fried rice nondescript. Food lukewarm.

We couldn't wait to leave.

The portions were very small, and along with a mediocre Mojito, the price of an extremely sub-standard lunch was £60 including 12½% service.

I would have complained bitterly about every aspect of our experience, and not paid the service charge, but my son is easily embarrassed and would have been angry if I had "caused a scene", especially on such an occasion.

As soon as we got home I cooked an English fry up. A fraction of the cost of our lunch at Fatt Pundit and infinitesimally more tasty.

On the plus side ....the loos were clean!

Food was amazing and so was the service, can’t wait to go back.

There was one really off putting aspect though - the waiters/waitresses don’t get any of the tips, it all goes to management, so we took the service off and tipped cash.

This is a fun place with very good and innovative food. I like spice and they delivered! The crispy okra was one of the best veg dishes I have had. The cocktails are something different and I chose to give the bartender a freehand. It was a good decision. Service very friendly and personal. I will return
