“Great food”

Great food, a bit hard to find and very, very busy, light on ambience but if you want a perfectly cooked steak and sides you can't go past this place ...

“good, cheap farang food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Fatty's can be quite hard to find for first-timers, but it's worth the effort if you are in the south of Phuket after 6pm.
They offer a really good value mixed grill, lots of typical German dishes such as schnitzels, a choice of pork or chicken Cordon Bleu, and many other generously-portioned dishes.
The restaurant isn't much to look at, but don't let that put you off. It is outdoor and basic, but the service is good, the beer is cold, and the meals are the best combination of quality and value you'll find.
Say hello to Fatty in the kitchen - he's always there!

“Great Value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Offering staeks, meat and chicken dishes one of my favorites is the Chicken in batter, very reasonable pricing and large portions, the restaurant is quite small so you need to get there early or call to book a table but its worth it!

“I dare you to find better value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Fatty's is not on the busy West coast so most tourists will be poorer for not experiencing the food and delightful conversations of JP, the owner. He has been cooking in Thailand for over 17 years and moved from Phi Phi to Chalong on Phuket' after his restaurant was destroyed by the Tsunami of 2004. His food is mainly European with a definite German influence. His plates are massive and he fills all the space on them with his full range of meals. The tastes of his cooking can only be derived from a man who loves to cook and has practiced at it for many many years. The steaks are excellent, as are the pork, lamb, and fish dishes. The prices are very low and I defy anybody to find a better value meal on the island. I can thoroughly recommend Fattys and it is worth the journey across the island if you are staying on the West coast. It is situated near the main entrance to "Land and Houses" on the Chao Fa East road on the way to Phuket town from Chalong.
