The Fatty Bao, (a part of the Olive group of restaurants, India’s most premier stand-alone restaurant company) debuted five years ago at one of Mumbai’s most vibrant and dynamic suburbs- Andheri. The popular Asian Gastrobar, opened with a brand new touch – an Izakaya and Noodleshop – inspired space, an Asian menu brimming with fresh new flavours, signature cocktails and a rustic yet intimate space.
The view from the entryway gives you a clear idea of where you may like to sit in the three distinct seating options that are available. Choose to sit by the bar dotted with comfortable stools for drink or dinner or at the high tables right next to it, giving to you as a solo diner or with a friend, ample room to be close to where all the action is at the bar. The bamboo lined bar with deep set cove lighting sets the mood for a great meal. The red and green themed bar is lined with Asian character motifs, framed images and artefacts to lightly intersperse alcohol choices with the theme of the restaurant. You could also choose to sit on the high stool table arrangement to the right of the restaurant. Placed directly below a cluster of Asian themed lamps, it’s the perfect spot for a small group or a young family to have a good time. A modern take on popular Asian fans in the form of light fixtures, line the walls. These are placed over eclectic panels of origami art work and mirrors to reflect the similar décor elements at the bar. Past this section and a wooden semi-arc is an area with regular style seating, for those who prefer deep bucket seats and a table. The underlying material theme of rattan, wood and bamboo continues into this space as well. The wooden board flooring that runs down the center of the space to an artefact wall showcase has several multi-colored POP elements of origami designs. The overhead framed mirror reflects this space enhancing both the visual and aesthetic appeal. While one wall of this seating area continues with the theme of framed panels, the other side is reminiscent of delicate screens of a Japanese tea house.
