Small restaurant in Bedford place but big reputation. Great home made food, all cooked to perfection. We had the banquet for 2, at £18.95 a head. We were eating for nearly 2 hrs and every piece of it was fantastic. Small offerings of each selection which, although don't look like much we're well cooked and tasted lovely. Well priced food...

I went with 2 friends, we shared some of the homemade dips and pitta to start, with the lovely house red wine. Then we had the Fatfig special mixed kebab of chicken, pork and a sheftalies (amazing home made sausages) served with the hand cut proper chips and Greek salad. Wow! Just managed to finish it. Fantastic. We will defiantly... More

The staff were more than helpful to recommend us their meze plates which consist of... More

Very tasty food, not expensive, and the staff and the open kitchen made it a really relaxed and casual atmosphere. Will certainly be going back.

From the outside and the décor I wasn't expecting a lot, but the food was a great surprise. Had an array of starters to share and everything was fresh and tasty, this included the aubergine, and pitas and dips (tzatziki, taramasalata, skorthalia - never had better). The halloumi and pork was a bit salty, definitely needed a drink with it... More

I went there on a mates recommendation and from the outside wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I wrong. The service was very good - friendly, attentive but not too intruding. I had the Mousakka which was nicely presented and it came with chips, which seemed fresh and a salad with a nice tasty dressing. The coke was £1.60 which I... More

We went to the Fat Fig after a hankering for mezze and a new place. What a find! Pleasant staff and wonderful food The calamari is some of the best I have had, light and crispy and not overcooked. We also had falafel, tatziki, hoummous and warm bread. The ambiance left a little to be desired, I think if they... More
