Average food and service

The ambience is relaxing. Food is average (Ordered a la carte noodles). The price range is also from average to pricey. My dad and husband ordered beer, not chilled although it was promised chilled. Note: The flaming noodles doesnt flame! ☺️

We have tried 3 dishes for lunch and everything was ok. The prices are in the same range as many other restaurants in the area. I wish I could have seen a more customer oriented approach from the staff, the guy who took the order looked like we have disturbed him from his siesta.

Came here for the three flavoured fish and was not disappointed. Good food and great service. I suggest grabbing a table inside if you're dining in the evening to avoid the mosquitoes. All in all we enjoyed our meal and will return

We came there as the restaurant was in our german travel book. the food (Noodle on Fire) were good but not amazing and quite expensive compared to the number of prawns (2 small pieces) that we have in our plate.

Stopped here for a buffet breakfast and the food was authentic and hand made (unlike much on the island). Raymond mentioned the difficulty he is having with the owner of his old site (almost opposite and still using his sign and trading also as Fat Mum) Make no mistake the food here is terrific and the staff friendly and welcoming....

Tastey home cooked food and friendly welcoming people. Auntie jenny and her husband were a delight. We had the buffet and the price was very reasonable also! Please do not confuse with the sea eagle which has a fat mamas sign outside!!
