“Shocking lunchtime performance”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Having visited Fatty's at least 100 times it seemed like a good idea for lunch on my day off..... Ordered wine and the mixed grill (190 and 230 baht respectively). Wine was warm and I was given a glass of ice as opposed to an ice bucket to chill the wine. They do have ice buckets, I know from previous visits. The mixed grill was so overcooked the pork medalions were the size of a 10 baht coin and the chicken equally over cooked. In the evenings the owner is either doing the cooking or over overseeing the process. Why should I be penalised with quality for visiting at lunch? Either change the price structure to reflect this huge difference or have someone to manage the quality please. The only reason the review is not 1 star (terrible) is my other visits on the whole were acceptable.

“Great food and value for money”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Fantastic big portions with a great western menu, yes people say its pricey for Thailand but when you consider the portion sizes and the quality of the food you cant go wrong. Chicken Schnitzel, Burgers and Chicken Steaks are all amazing. This is an ideal place to go to get a proper hearty western meal on one of those days when you are sick of the sight of rice and noodles.

“Big portions”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Went there for lunch today and I had chicken cordon bleu. Huge plate with fries and salad for about $6. The chicken was filled with cheese and ham and very good mom had schnitzel, very big as well and daughter had a cheeseburger. Very good food. Very hard to find, kind of tucked behind a little row if shops. Parking was hard to find because that little place is busy. Their menu is very big,any choices also Thai food. If you want German food though I'd still recommend Valentin in Rawai though, who can eat such big portions? Overall very pleasant and i'd always recommend this place. The tables had tablecloths which was a nice touch and the personnel was friendly and understood english and German.
