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).

My first visit and definitely not the last! The food was amazing, just wish the monkfish portion was slightly bigger as it was so tasty!

Came here as a Christmas present to my girlfriend, shared the vegetarian food with her, was blown away by how tasty and imaginative it was. Being from Indian background I was pleasantly surprised on the new takes of classic dishes my grandmother makes.

The atmosphere was nice, and the restaurant is in a convenient spot if you're off to the theatre!

Think i will definitely return and try the meat dishes next time.

Hands down the best restaurant that I have been to in London, although it is worth noting that it is quite small meaning that, when busy, it can be quite loud

Please get the crackling spinach when you come here, it’s absolutely delicious. Opted for the monkfish curry and Bombay prawns. The waiters/waitresses were attentive.

The food was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it! I have been wanting to go for a while and it was definitely worth the wait. My favourite was the crackling spinach which is such a unique dish! Can't wait to go again!

The food was nice but overall the dishes we ordered contained too much sugar, the service was slow and the restaurant didn’t seem to be too busy.

On a side note the seating is too close together and the people on the tables next to you feel like they are sitting at your table. They could do with reducing the tables to give the customers a better experience.

Had the most wonderful time for a friend’s birthday! Lovely touch added by the staff in terms of a personalised birthday card.

The food was nice however we just felt - being Indian Bengalis from Calcutta, the birthplace of Indo-Chinese cuisine - that the food could do with more robust flavours and portioning. The chilli chicken is strongly amiss in the menu.

Overall, nice concept, we had a great evening!

Short menu, friendly service, although they could do better ho bring dishes in some order.... there were two of us, my guest having different dishes to me, they brought more or less all of my dishes out whereas the guest was still waiting for their first dish which made it a little awkward.

Food was decent, particularly the momos, prawns and the cauliflower. But overall, didn’t feel like anything particularly special vs a solid Chinese takeaway.

Also, whilst it’s important to turn tables in london and sharing plates are the norm, we must’ve ordered 10 dishes that all arrived within 10 minutes of each other, so was a bit rushed and over crowded on our little table.

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.

A very poor ambience masquerading as authentic and rustic. Congested, got a table in front of the toilet with a dirty curtain as separation, mediocre food presented as fusion, served in steel containers, decent service but very poor value for money. Regretted it as soon as we walked in. Never again.

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.
