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

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 amusingly... 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
