We enjoy having breakfast here as we are never disappointed. Though extremely busy, the food arrived hot, including the cuppachino which was nice and fluffy! Mike and the staff are always pleasant and helpful.

I love a restaurant that play music to make you enjoy your food. Most franchise restaurants play quick music to get you to eat and leave so they can fill your seat again. These guys don't. The food is awesome and the staff is very good. They were out of stock on a couple of things but the alternative was... More

Have probably eaten at fat cats around 50-60 times in the last year, and haven't had a bad meal. Friendly service and very good food - a variety of grills/curries/pizzas are all prepared very well and reasonably priced. I'd rate it as Mtunzini's best restaurant.

Staff looked as though they had just been employed off the street......some smart uniforms might be a good idea, but good food and very reasonably priced. Would go back !!

The friendly waitress recommended the chicken and prawn curry, and it was delicious! Sitting on the deck seeing the ocean in the distance and a palm-nut vulture flying past was fabulous.

We have eaten at Fat Cat many times and have never been dissapointed. Good food, friendly staff and a wide variety of meals to choose from. During holiday season they are extremely busy so you will not get a table unless you book in advance.

Nice dinner but it was a problem to get fresh fish, they don't have this kind of thing. The fish is frozen but they admit it.
