Description: Fat Plate Cafe is a family-run eatery located on the left bank of the River Beas. The cafe is a brick & wood building constructed over a 3 bigha plot of land, surrounded by lush green lawns and its very own herb and vegetable gardens. The cafe seats 80 covers, the seating is divided between the indoor lounge, the veranda and the two level of lawns. The cafe was born in 2012, promoted by the gurung family who share a deep passion for food. Anubhav Gurung, the son, is the chef and in-charge of the kitchen. The food is the soul of the cafe; the menu is based around European and north Indian specialities. The chef believes in following the traditional cooking techniques and giving them his own flavour. The menu is based on the seasonality of ingredients and the chef works closely with his butcher and his gardener to finally decide what’s going to be on the menu.Rarrah meat, Roast leg of lamb, Bacon wrapped chicken with plum sauce and the Mustard chilli trout are some of the top selling items. The cafe bakes its own breads and most of the herbs and the salads are grown on the premises. Most of the ingredients are sourced locally and are bought from the farmers directly.

“Great place to hangout with friends”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

If you wanna relax in the lap of nature, away from the din of the city,then this is the place for you.We found this place just by luck-while exploring the roads of manali. The outdoor seating,beautiful lawn, colorful flowers all cheered us up.The owners are warm and friendly. Inside decor was also beautiful.It felt very homely.One of the walls was covered by the pics of all the celebrities who had been there.We ordered snacks and drinks. The quality and quantity of the food was good ('Fat' plate,remember!) though the price of the beer was high.Summing it up,i would definitely hangout at this place with my buddies if i go to manali again.CHEERS!!

“Awesome ambiance, average food.”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Fat-Plate, completely relaxing ambiance. Outdoor seating, colorful flowers, the vast travel and cookery library everything is appealing and provides a relaxing environment. Regarding food, one who has got Indian palate will find it disappointing. But at the same time, the continental cuisine are good to try. Over-all the fat plate is convincing for the English crowd than the Indian.
