A thai kitchen and a "farang" kitchen guarantees good food for every taste. The bar serves great drinks and music, and people "feel at home" here. It is a busy place, and in high season you may have to wait for ½ hour for your food, especially around 8PM. But who cares - you sit outside, have a drink, relax... More

If you have been on a cruise ship,then you know the quality of the ingredients and food, then think both are an island in each way, the food at fat monkey is excellent and could easily have a franchise on a cruise ship. Cocktail desserts are good, flaming sambucas to finish. Sorry if I never asked you if I could... More

We went for a snack before dinner and play pool as they have free pool table. In the end we ordered a lot of snacks and drinks because they were great quality. We had a few burgers, really really big and amazingly tasty!!!

My husband and I visited Fat Monkey's several times and it was always fantastic. The range of gourmet food they have is like nothing you'll see again on a little tropical island...the gourmet burgers and pizzas are great, but there's also lots of very good Thai dishes, so there's something for everyone. It was our favourite restaurant on the island.

Went to fat monkey today for dinner. I want to give a huge compliment to the waiter and the cook. I have an allergy and she pretty much triple checked to make sure i can eat what i ordered. Great food (careful very spicy pateng) great staff. Thanks again
