Fat Chow

A Cantonese restaurant with pretty views

Time Out Says

Housed on the west side of The Pointe, you’ll find Fat Chow – an Asian restaurant specialising in Cantonese cuisine that’s spread out over two floors, with the upstairs area being licensed.

It’s beautifully decorated with funky poster-style wallpaper adoring the walls, Chinese lanterns and an overall funky aesthetic.

The concise menu is made up of soups, steamed and wok-fried dishes, small bites, house specials, dim sum, noodle and rice dishes and desserts. The vegetarian options are limited, but the chef is happy to accommodate any dietary requirements by tweaking the dishes, such replacing meat with extra veggies and tofu.

Everything comes well-presented and the portions are filling – we’d suggest ordering a few dishes to share rather than individual portions – the yaki soba is more than enough for three people.

The dynamite shrimp is crispy and packs a punch, the vegetable dim sum, though tiny are accompanied with a delicious homemade chilli sauce, but the Peking duck could be crispier.

The major downfall is it lacks any ambiance  and we leave feeling full but slightly saddened by how quiet is it. That being said, there’s a lot of potential and hopefully when the weather cools down it’ll start to draw a crowd as the views are superb and dishes are solid.
