Great little restaurant with a nice vibe

We booked a table not really knowing what to expect but had a great evening. The service was attentive they serve really good house wine at a good price and the food is great.

I reviewed this place a few years back and wasn't impressed by the speed of service. Well, they seem to have improved it a lot! It's not fast food, but we were served in good time, even though the place was pretty busy. Food was great and we were properly looked after.

I liked their calamari and hake. Ask for their lamb curry, it is amazing. The pork ribs and the chicken are also good dishes. The steak was alright, just not prepared to our liking.

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.

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.

We have eaten many great meals at Fat Cat over the past few years and I can honestly say that we were never disappointed with our meals. Mike and his staff offer friendly service, delicious food and generous portions at a reasonable price. The coffee milkshakes and chicken & prawn curry is highly recommended! During holiday seasons it is advisable... More

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.
