Home Cooked Goodness

Best for local and home cooked food, friendly especially Fat Mum herself, don't be shy to ask for her recommendations. Reasonable price.

Food is nice. Simple nice. Nothing to shout about. The man behind the counter can really ruin ones mood to eat. Grumpy man. Homemade taufoo is nice. Overall food is average but nice. Drinks, alcoholic ones are pricey. One can Heineken cost RM6.50.

We ate here a number of times during our holiday and loved every meal - the food is fresh and delicious, definitely was a the jewel in the crown for an otherwise disappointing holiday in Langkawi Would definitely recommend!!

Food was served fast and was quite flavoursome. Fish and meat was a little fatty - not choice cuts. Tip: Do not drive over Fat Mum's garden hose pipe at the side of the restaurant when parking or you are in for icy treatment for the entire evening!

Great food. Went after reading trip advisor. Should go n try.. Will go again in my next trip.. She cooks her own made recipes.. We ate kangkung, her special flaming noodle, home made bean curd and squid.. Squid was just nice but the others were excellent..

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 be Fat Mom's... 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.

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! ☺️
