“Fat food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My compliments to the chef.

The bar is basic but at these prices and the best US cuisine in Thailand who cares? I even tried the jalapeno poppers from a TA recommendation and was still delighted :) A reprieve from all the sub-par farang joints and theme pubs and a great 'small business' to boot. The sumptuous burgers and other specialities here, served with fries in a basket put places like Mos Burger and Bangkok Burger Company (which is terrible anyway) to shame.

Would love to see them upgrade to better seating and all-round leather upholstery in the future but I can understand their profit margins are doing just fine for now. Nice to hear some genuine indy music in the background, reminded me of being a student in the 90's. Well done Fatty's, Beer Lao and Beer Lao Dark also available? Please.

“Great value, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Really good American-style grub at bargain-basement prices. It hasn't been open for too long but it definitely has a growing following - especially among the musically inclined. It's the kind of hole-in-wall live music place that Bangkok desperately needs more of. A good vibe all around and I've never been disappointed with anything on the menu.

“Best Burger yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

BBQ burger platter 140 baht. Just like back home. All the prices are good. The other fodd I tried also quite nice. The chef looks like he stepped out of "Pirates of the Caribbean"

Exit MRT subway Praram 9. at corner of Fortune Hotel turn right. about 10 minute walking standard Bangkok style obstacle course LOL. On right side. I checked scenic view cause if you sit outside in smoking area you can see lots of traffic.

“Great spot. Good music, good food, good atmosphere, great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Recently moved to the Asoke/Ratchada/Din Daeng area and have been looking for a decent hangout since. I found Fatty's through a TripAdvisor review and decided to give it a shot. Great spot. It feels like home with good tunes playing and great burgers.

It looks like it's a bit out of the way but is really only a 10 minute walk from Asoke/Ratchada (or Rama IX MRT station) and the cheap cool beer will cool you off when you arrive. Beer Lao Dark for 100 THB? Happy Days.

“Great food, Cool vibe, Awesome prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

If you are looking for some really top-notch, authentic, American favorites in Bangkok this is the place. There are lots of restaurants serving good American food but the quality and prices at fatty's make it the clear choice.

The atmosphere is also great. It's a small place but there is often some kind of live music. (Open Mic on Tuesdays)

Service is great...it will not disappoint.
