There is a lot to like about this place and if it wasn't for our service experience, I would have rated it higher. The place is very lively and loud which can make conversation difficult, but it was overall a fun atmosphere. First, I loved...More

We had a wonderful meal at Fat Rice. Their signature dish is Arroz Gordo, which in English they call fat rice. We didn't actually have that, but had other wonderful dishes. Olives and garlic almonds, curry vegetable samosas with tamarind chutney, pork and ginger dumpling...More

Fat Rice has a following and a great reputation. Our party of three landed there on a Saturday evening. Front of house and wait staff were top notch. Wait time was less than predicted by hostess, all good things right? But the problem is that...More
