Eat a burger (or two)

After travelling for quite some time and not trusting quality of meat we decided to splurge and get burgers and beers at Fat Monkey. Hands down the best bit of red meat I'd eaten in months! And being an Aussie, was a bonus to find the trusty Aussie burger on the menu with beetroot, pineapple and... read more

We have been here many times and love it! Ling Uan (Fat Monkey) has a large, social bar area and an even larger selection of drinks! The owner, Will, his wife Ning and their and staff are super nice people and always make us laugh and feel at home. Surrounded by lush tropical plants (and a swing seat, no, not... More

We had dinner at Fat Monkey twice during our stay at Koh Lanta. When we went there we had burgers, since we wanted a change from the (great) thai food we usually had. The burgers were fantastic. There were of course also other dishes on the menu! It was more expensive than the other restaurants we visited, however I still... More

We've lived on the island for 3 years and we eat here at least a few times a week. From salads to pizza (best on the island) and really really good cocktails we don't know what we'd do with out this place! Great music and vibe, highly recommended.

We had a delicious meal at the Fat Monkey with a group of friends and we are going back there for sure before we head back to Canada. There was a good selection of drinks and food. My husband had the steak that he said ranked up with a good steakhouse. I ordered from the daily specials board and had... More

This is probably the best all-round restaurant on Lanta Island. Very good Thai-food and very good western food. Their Larb Samosa are sensational. The owner is a former Cocktail Bartender from the U.K and he knows his stuff when it comes to liquers. His exceptional knowledge and accurate flavors is only found in 5 star restaurants and bars in Bangkok.... More

Overall we had a great experience with service in koh lanta. With the exception of the fat monkey. Ok let's get the positives out the way...the food is good and the atmosphere is good. It ends there. We are twice here, forgiving the shoddy service the first time because we enjoyed the pizza. The South African manager was really quite... More

We always go here at least once for their burgers when we visit Koh Lanta. They are big, many different types to choose from and are among the best we had on the island. The vegetarian burger is big and good. Their ice cream shakes are always a hit for the young ones (and some grown ups too). The restaurant... More

We had the worst evening here on our trip. Slow service & rude stuff. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Ruined our last night on the island!
