The welcoming was very friendly and hearty. The waitress and service excellent. Ambience very nice, but the proof of the pudding was in the eating. Their beer batter fish was "heartily", will definitely go back and recommend it. Well done fat fish!!

We had the most awesome lunch at The fat fish! Our waitress was friendly and the service was really good. We had the Burmese seafood curry and the Kingklip with smoked chilli butter as mains......omg! It was absolutely delicious! Thank you - we will definitely be back!

Me and my Boyfriend went there one morning for a late breakfast. Sho but was the service really bad. The food was nice but the way their waitress treats customers and attitude is disgusting. Not well presented, the smell of cigarettes coming off her breathe and just plain rude.

In the future when hiring someone teach them customer service!! If it wasn't for the food I would never come back and will not be referring anyone to coming to the Fat Fish.

Not a very good first impression!!!

Dear Karen F

It troubles me greatly to hear you did not have a satisfactory experience at our restaurant. I do ensure you that we invest in the best training for all our staff. I will inform the person involved of the experience to avoid this kind of disappointment in the future.

Thank you
