Fatty's is a great restaurant! If you want European cafe go into Smooth Bistro next door

For 12 years I have visited Smooth only. If you are an Ex-Pat or International visitor that is where to go! Same owner as Fatty's - just very laid back. Italian dishes and German beer / bar the best in Taichung!!

Next door to Fatty's. Same owners. Same menu if you'd like. You had a choice of Fatty's or Smooth's. Smooth's was European with a German slant. Good German draft beer. Gerhardt the man in charge was willing to have the chef make it the way you like it. Wonderful bread! Nice ambiance, good wine selection, linen table cloths. We ate... More

We started frequenting this place since 2006 when our investment projects led us to Taichung. We got to know the owner Henry (a well travelled Dutch guy) very well and spent countless times in his restaurant. Henry also owns the Fatty Italian restaurant right around the corner so the menu offers Italian and European food, but Henry and his team... More

Well where shall I begin. Lousy service from people who just dont want to be there. Overpriced in all areas. Waited far too long for menu and then to take the order was another 15 minutes. BY the time the first course arrived it was cold. The main course was no better with the steak served returned to to be... More

A nicer restaurant than their casual next door restaurant "Fatty's". They call it a European Restaurant, however I would say mostly Italian with a few other dishes. Their baked pastas were good. The creme brulee was great...one of the best I've had. I'm a very picky eater and I finished everything. Not a fan of their house salad. It's the... More
