Fat Choy is about a 7 month old pan asian restaurant on the SV Road at Santacruz which is soon going to be touted as one of the best budget asian restaurants in that side of the city. From the interiors to the cutlery, everything in Fat Choy reeks of a certain asian edge specially their beautifully painted walls where they have created their own version of a certain Mr. Fat Choy!
Though the entrance to the place is quite missable owing to its small frontage, once you enter, Fat Choy is quite huge. The owners of the place also have another place – Sridevi Restaurant – on the opposite road.
The menu is quite exhaustive consisting purely of asian and chinese fare with abundant varieties of dimsums, appetizers and main course. Like most pan asian restaurants, the desserts were very few and generic and not a very major part of what the restaurant had to offer.
As mentioned above, the walls of the restaurant are adorned with really cute paintings of their own version of a superhero called Mr. Fat Choy, who looks more like a cute chinese samurai. The black cutlery brings out the colour in the food and goes well with the over all ambience of the place.
What we Ate
Our hosts had taken the liberty to order the restaurants best items on our behalf (which was very good since we reached really late and were dying of hunger!). We started our dinner with a serving of lemon and coriander soup, followed by spinach and cheese dimsums, chicken satay, paneer satay, hoisin chicken, thai chicken, fried rice, thai curry noodles and prawns. The food was delicious with amazing flavours. The green thai chicken curry was our favourite with the right amount of consistency and taste. Our dinner ended with a serving of honey noodles topped with vanilla icecream, which is a staple asian restaurant dessert.
Fat Choy is a very budget friendly restaurant, with mind blowing quantity and portion size for very affordable rates with a meal costing an average of around INR 500-700 per head
