Fatt Pundit is an Indo Chinese restaurant in Soho. Fatt Pundit aims to merge traditional Chinese cooking techniques with Indian spices and ingredients. We love Indian food and really enjoy Chinese food so were really excited to eat at Fatt Pundit. We were also really excited because we’d been on a hiatus from “foodie-ing” while I completed my law school exams. I’m done now (well, almost) so we’re back!
Fatt Pundit is in Berwick Street, right in the heart of Soho. It’s really casual, and uniquely so. It’s stripped back, with a modern rustic vibe. The service is also relaxed but very attentive and friendly (everyone had a smile 😊).
Now, the food…
The menu is not exhaustive, but then every dish is intriguing. We had to curb our enthusiasm and not order the entire menu.
Momos are dumplings… we love dumplings, Shiima especially. So ordered the chicken, beef, and kid goat.
They were all delicious, but the chicken and kid goat were standout. The filling in both were very saucy and well spiced 👌🏾.
The crackling spinach was a tad too sweet for me, but Shiima really enjoy it. It tasted very similar well done chaats we enjoyed recently.
The Bombay Chilly Prawns were awesome. And boy, were they spicy. A tad sticky too, and the prawns were large and meaty.
Meat, Game + Poultry
The lollypop chicken were just great. Simply the best “lollipop chicken” we’ve had, and we didn’t expect it to be so delicious because it was fried. But then it wasn’t oily or too crispy… it was just perfectly cooked and seasoned.
The Barrah Lamb Chops were so tender that it just melt in your mouth. Plus, it was really well spiced with masala.
Shiima ordered the egg Szechuan fried rice to eat with the Manchurian chicken and the rice looked so mouthwatering that we forgot to take a picture 😂. And it was really delicious as well. As you might know if you’ve read any of our previous posts, I don’t eat rice expect on sushi but I absolutely devoured this. The Manchurian chicken was awesome too. The sauce was very rich and spicy and the chicken was immersed in its flavour.
The shredded chilly venison was similar in a way to the Manchurian chicken, but less saucy and obviously with a very different taste of tender venison. It came with a fluffy bao bun which we enjoyed with the venison and the Manchurian chicken.
We ordered the sizzling brownie to share and enjoyed it. The brownie and the warm chocolate sauce weren’t too sweet, and the ice cream was decent.
We really enjoyed our dinner experience at Fatt Pundit. We couldn’t have hoped for a better dinner after almost a month away from our foodie adventures. The food is fantastic, the vibe is relaxing, and the service is very friendly. We recommend for casual dates and a unique meal with friends, family, or colleagues. Fatt Pundit is fairly inexpensive as well.
