We just walked in because of the professional look of the restaurant and were so pleasantly surprised. The food was so great, each dish was a true work of art. I had the duck breast mango salad, the perfect balance in different ingredients gave it a heavenly taste. My GF had the Salmon which was a delight on its own.... More

Went to Fat Monkey for dinner. Excellent mojito, starters, burgers and desserts. The pizza was overdone though... We did not taste the Thai food here. Very nice decor and atmosphere. Definitely worth the price!

This review is for pizza and pasta. It was above expectations, pizza was well made and pasta as well. So if you are looking for some European food in Thailand i would recommend this restaurant. It took about 45-60 mins to get food. 500B per person with some drinks.

Fat monkey was the absolute perfect choice for our special Christmas dinner on Lanta. It was a splurge for us but the food and friendliness of the staff made it completely worth it. We sat at the bar because the restaurant was full but that made the company even better with ex-pat locals and the owner hanging out and talking... More

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
