Winning For

The great ambience {especially the al fresco seating} and the extensive menu to choose from.

Lowdown On The Ambience

Tucked behind Jagriti Theatre, the Fat Chef is mercifully quiet, shutting out the drum of Whitefield deftly. Offering both indoor and outdoor spaces, the first thing you’ll notice as you enter is the wine counter – white and reds for sale, folks! The tables are spread far apart, allowing you a sense of privacy that’s uncommon in most restaurants in the city. The al fresco setting was a hit with us, its walls covered with thriving flora.

What’s On The Menu

We kicked off the Business Lunch with a tomato soup, creamy with a sprinkling of pepper, building up our appetite for the slew of starters to come. The Non-Veg Salad didn’t disappoint, with chicken strips, lettuce, black olives and peppers tossed in a creamy white dressing. We had mixed feelings about the the Cheesy Corn Tartlets, with the cheese slightly overpowering the corn. The Chicken Tandoori Tikka was a lot more enjoyable, with a hint of lemon, and thankfully not overly spicy. The Bhuna Masala Prawns took things up a notch, spicy with a slightly South Indian vibe, a perfect ally for a round of drinks. Cool off with Virgin Mojito – heavy on the mint leaves though, and the spot-on Cucumber Mint Cooler.

Tucking In

For the main course, you can pick from the a la carte menu. The Grilled Fish With Lemon Zest in lemon butter sauce was a potpourri of subtle flavours, served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables. The fish surrendered easily to the knife and fork revealing the juicy white meat underneath. Apart from that, the Fish and Chips we’d ordered was appropriately subdued, with a nice crunch. The Tartar sauce was a tad underwhelming, but not bad as things go. For dessert we partook of the usual, Gulaab Jamuns, small slices of Chocolate Truffle Cake, Basundi {we don’t recommend this} and the Crème Brûlée {which we loved}.

So We’re Thinking…

The Fat Chef is a good candidate for a quick meeting over lunch. The service is quick and the quiet allows conversations to go unhindered.
