Fat Pasha sits adjacent to the railroad tracks on the northern edge of the Annex, in the former home of long-time neighbourhood staple, Indian Rice Factory. Sometimes people will wander in unaware of the business change—certain elements of the old restaurant, like its iconic back patio koi pond, have remained—but it doesn't take long to figure out that there's a new kid on the block.

“The Grateful Dead is always on,” says the restaurant's front-of-house manager Kathleen Shattock as she gestures to the mural behind her, which features a fez-clad figure with a more-than-passing resemblance to Jerry Garcia against a background of iconic Middle Eastern vignettes rendered in a puff of hookah smoke. Another mural on the building's exterior wall shows the same husky fellow parting the red sea.

The mural sums up Fat Pasha's concept: Old-school Middle Eastern cuisine with a rock-and-roll twist.

This particular fusion is personal for owner Anthony Rose, who is both Jewish and a total Deadhead. As Kathleen puts it, his vision for Fat Pasha was to blend creative Middle Eastern culinary stylings reminiscent of Israeli-born chef Yotam Ottolenghi with “Jewish grandmother food” such as latkes, lox and brisket.

As for the rock-and-roll? Well, that part just comes naturally. “We like having loud and ruckus atmospheres and having a lot of fun doing what we do,” says Kathleen.

    What an amazing experience at Father's Pasha. From the amazing and attentive reception at the door inspite of the restaurant being so busy to the complimentary drink offered at the bar while we waited on our table and then to top it off with amazing food, Fat Pasha is a collective experience. If I'm spelling their names correctly, Bridget and Aisla were fantastic!! Attentive and aware of oir needs and the kitchen!! Wow!! What a team. Kudos.

    Thank you for a wonderful dinner! We were very late due to Uber/Taxi issues and the staff were very accommodating and understanding. They also comp’d their legendary cauliflower when we asked if they had gotten our order properly. And above all else, the food was beyond incredible. Thanks for a great dinner!

    Did not disappoint. Food and drinks delicious. Service was exceptional. And the atmosphere cozy I started with the Rosie Cheeks cocktail which was so tasty. Right when I was feeling the buzz,the food came out. And. It. Was. So. Good. My group split a bunch of things. The whole roasted cauliflower, the Fat Pasha Salatin Platter, , squash chirchi, and Linda's famous brisket. It was all so good. We just kept trying and "mmming" and "ahhhing". Will be back soon!

    Great, but what’s with the 5% processing fee automatically added to the bill??? It’s become VERY expensive to eat out (and order in). Too many “fees”.

    Massive portions, extra generous service (gave us extra pita and a yummy veg side dish that was even better the next day), delicious food all around. Our faves: falafel, bubbe’s brisket (wish my bubbe had known how to make it like this!), labneh dip, chicken Shwarma with beautiful, pillowy homemade pita. Highly recommend! *****

    Fat Pasha is iconic. The ambiance is so much fun and the service is amazing, we had Brittany taking care of us and she was so sweet and bubbly. There’s a sense of humour about the place and I contribute that to the chef’s background. I felt very welcome as a Jew myself and felt immediately at home. The food was incredible. The labneh is literally to die for. You can’t go wrong at this restaurant!!! Everything is delicious!! I can’t wait to bring all my friends and family here and become a regular. Thanks for such an amazing night and see you soon!!

    Always a fantastic meal at Fat Pasha. This time around, we decided to go as a family (instead of as a date) for Valentines and it was wonderful. The staff were great to the kids and the kids really enjoyed their time. We did the prix fixe menu with a couple of add ons for the kids and it was plenty of food. Pita and dips were top notch as were their falafels (which the kids couldn't get enough of). The main course of short ribs on couscous was fabulous and the kids loved the flat iron steak frites. The restaurant was sweet enough to give the kids an extra little dessert free of charge for being the first guests back for 2022. The kids felt very special.

    Falafel, shakshuka, a whole head of cauliflower and a mint tea. Is there anything that sounds more tantalizing than brunch at Fat Pasha? This Dupont Street establishment has a developed a great rep for serving up one of the city’s best Mediterranean dinners, and the brunch is on point too. The back patio is great for groups, and don’t forget to order a round of labneh for the table to start.

    Located on the Northeast corner of Dupont and Howland, Fat Pasha is a funky, family-friendly restaurant that serves what they refer to as “good Jew food.” Popular menu items include the Montreal steak-spiced flat iron (served with barbarian butter), the latke platter and the Babka bread pudding for dessert – although Instagrammers tend to swoon for the colourful and now-infamous cauliflower dish. Their back patio has the feel of a warm, secluded courtyard, and is stocked with gorgeous wooden benches and tables, making it the ideal place for an outdoor summer gathering.
