Fantastic steak and great atmosphere

We went there twice for the steak and it was perfect both times. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit.

The meals we had were very good , very fast service and the owner is a English man who is very friendly. The price for food... More

Hands down the best burgers on the island! They're big, juicy and full of flavor. I was a little sticker shocked on the prices 280-360 baht for a burger. But they were so good and the drinks were reasonable and also big so it off-sets the price a little bit. Being a backpacker, I couldn't eat here every night (or... More

Pizzas were great here, homemade and tasty. Really big too! We couldn't finish them. The only downfall was that the staff weren't over friendly and lacked a personal touch.

Really a very good place to have a beer and some food. Cool menu with variety of options that will satisfy anybody! You can also see into the kitchen as you head to the toilets and it was immaculate in there. I ordered Pad Thai Gung and Tempura Gung (prawns) were lovely although a bit heavy on the spring onions.... More

We dined at the Fat Monkey tonight and was so pleasantly pleased. The western food (spaghetti bolognese for our little boy) was excellent. The Thai food (for the adults) was tasty and excellent. The wine was decent (which is so hard to find here in KL). The staff was very nice and the ambiance was nice ("authenticish and not run... More
