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. I would say that it is a good place to have a lunch but I would not recommend it for... More

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!!

Maybe they lost something in their move up the street but this restaurant was lack luster in atmosphere and food. The staff were very friendly so no problem with the service but the food lacked any real flavour. This was my choice after reading previous reviews on here and I was slightly embarrassed afterwards. I read that they have recently... More

Pretty average fare, nothing special. But they had quite a good selection if you have kids who are fussy eaters.

Fat Mum has moved to new premises on the main road in Pantai Tengah. The food is generally pretty good but not always great value due to the smaller serves. It is typical Langkawi fare, being a mix of Chinese, Thai and Malay cuisine. Order the bigger sizes if you are a hearty eater.

Cheap and delicious food. Try the noodle on fire as that is their signature. Fish fillet type food is a little bad, as the fish feels a little soggy and not fresh. Definitely recommend this eatery.
