The decoration was nice. BUT We had to wait for our food for a long time and then it came the duck my husband ordered was cold... More

I first saw the place when one person living here was giving me a lift to long beach but stopped for a beer as he saw a friend sitting there. I really liked the place and the atmosphere so we decided to come back with my boyfriend once we would feel like eating non thai food :) that day was... More

This place serves the best cocktails I've had in Thailand. There is a tendency to really over-sweeten drinks in this country, and use inferior alternative mixers. Not the case at Fat Monkey, I was thrilled to discover last night! Superbly-made cocktails were the order of the day. I sampled the Coconut Margarita, a very well-seasoned Bloody Mary, a White Lady... More

Went here with my girlfriend when we stayed on Koh Lanta. This place has great Thai food, but the burger I had was amazing. Still the one to beat. Great atmosphere and people as well! A must visit!

We first sheltered in The Fat Monkey to get away from a rain shower. The atmosphere is brilliant - comfortable seating, attractive plants, little pools with fish swimming around and a free pool table at the back. I especially enjoyed the music playing - the owner has made a play-list of mostly mellow cover versions of popular music as well... More

We came for dinner and cocktails and were not disappointed. The place itself is amazing and we felt well looked after. We accidentally got brought a wrong dish, which got replaced without discussions but it took a while until it arrived so one of us had already finished, but that was the only tiny tiny negative thing i can mention....

We were SO happy to have stumbled upon The Fat Monkey's sister restaurant, The Fat Pig, our first night on Koh Lanta (see separate review for Fat Pig along the Saladan Pier). This is how we found out about the Fat Monkey. Sara was absolutely incredible. She greeted us with a smile every morning and night that we ate breakfast... More
