A decent enough place and the food is pretty OK too. It must be said that Fat Mom herself is a great personality, warm and friendly. And she is the sole cook that prepares whatever you order. However, the restaurant has a few issues working against it. 1. A man at the counter, whom I believe to... read more

I can't believe this restaurant only gets 3.5 it's the best place I've ever eaten. We went nearly every night for ten days and fat mum told us what soecilaity she would make for us the next night. The tofu made by mum was the most delicious meal ever and I'm not a vegetarian. Uncle chatted to us every day... More

In English: Fat Mum is definitely worth a visit. Mum herself is a charming lady and the not so small "uncle", is really interesting person. We visited here in February 2015 twice, the food is really tasty and the quality is excellent. Definitely the best dishes were fried fish pieces, lobster, fritted whole fish and flamed noodles. Actually, everything we... More

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