Amazing food & drink

I hate the term fusion but this place really nails it. The Thai food is as authentic as you could wish for and the Western food is spot on. I'm guessing this results from using Thai chefs for Thai food & a big fat Swede for the Euro dishes. The owner/host is a wizard with a cocktail and is... read more

Visited in the low season. Provided great service and great food. The staff were good with my 18 month old daughter. The burgers and pasta were great! The margarita pizza was ok, but would be better if they didn't put oregano on it. I loved the apple and mint shake. Thank you for a great few days that we spent... More

I read several reviews about this place and naturally had mixed feelings. It was a little hard to find as the sign was on the ground and small. The staff are kind and welcoming. Ordered a burger though I was skeptical due to some of the reviews but it was amazing! Very large portion and came with large wedges of... More

Being wheat intolerant, you can only eat rice so many times. The owner of the Twin Bay pointed me in the direction on the Fat Monkey and I was not disappointed. I ordered a bun-less burger and chunky chips and was in food heaven. The owner asked me if everything was alright and it was all I could do to... More

Me and my Boyfriend had a snack here yesterday. Good portion of food and very pleasant ambiance, but its a littlebit expensive compare to other restaurants we already tried here in the Island. You should Try their French fries with their special garlic mayo :) the best I had soo far..

Quite possibly the best pizza I've had anywhere in South East Asia. They got it absolutely spot on. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick. Would recommend to anyone looking for good western food in Koh Lanta.

Our hotel Twin Bay recommended this place, we loved the vibe and atmosphere of the restaurant. The menu is rather large - the mojitos great. Chilli beef starter was delicious. Burgers are outstanding. Service efficient and friendly. Not the cheapest place on the island but great evening and would recommend.
