parking sucks but other than that this place is great, my cousin had a Chinese wife and every time he comes to town they have to go here so, I'd say the food is pretty good, for both Americans and Chinese

We enjoyed our spring roll and pot sticker appetizers, but were blown away by the walnut prawns and sweet & sour pork! The flavours are so wonderful we could not stop eating.

We gathered at Frank Fats for a brunch and had great service and delicious food. The ambiance was elegant but not stuffy with wood as the theme but plenty of natural light. Would definitely return.

Frank Fat’s is my favorite Chinese Restaurant. It never disappoints. The honey walnut prawns are to die for and the green beans in chili sauce are delicious. The banana cream pie is a must. Service is always great!

None, it's not a fancy place, but it's not a denny's either. You probably want to wear something better than beach wear as others would appreciate not having to dine with others wearing next to nothing or thong sandles.
