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.

Manali is a place where you get lots of options for dining . Most of them are around the overcrowded mall area . If you get a place which is far from the madding crowd, which beckons you with a tastefully manicured garden and if you find , for good measure , delightfully different food, well , the least you can do is go back ASAP. If you love continental food, this is THE place in Manali . Their 'Mojito" is not the typical "Mojito" but the basil leaf used in place of Mint creates its own charm. The Chicken stroganoff is delicious, Veg Au Gratin can compete with the best in the world. Trout preparations are aweeeeee..some. The Apple Pie tastes out of this world. Home made ice-creams make your defence against overeating weak, really weak. The Elderly Mr Gurung after a 25 year career with a 5 star hotel at Manali assisted by his still Vice-principal wife are assisting their chef son to carve a niche in the restaurant industry. There's no reason why they should not succeed earlier than they have targeted.

Our Group of 5 Families just found this hidden Gem in Manali just by accident ....we were greeted and welcomed by the Owners Son, who gave us detailed description of the menu along with the ingredients involved in the cooking process, also we found that the veggies in the salads and some other dishes were coming straight from the Garden Kitchen of this wonderful Restaurant.The owner Mr. Anubhav has been a wonderful host Kudos to him for running a lovely show....once again we would like to thank them for a wonderful Experience
