“Dimsum basket is a must-try”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We've dined here many times when visiting from the Chicago area. The dimsum basket is a must-try to start off the table. We've always liked Fats and this was one of our better experiences here; recommend the ahi tuna salad and the teriyaki chicken in a pot with rice.

“Memorable Food”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Fat's Bistro is a well-known, local restaurant serving consistently delicious food. Recently I enjoyed a fabulously prepared lunch with my a group of women friends who get together for lunch once a month. Each month we choose a different restaurant and Fat's remains one of our favorite meeting places. There were 29 women who attended this month and we were able to have special tables set up away from the main dining area. Because of the size of the group we ate family style. Each of us raved about the pre-selected menu items such as Fat's famous walnut prawns, among others.

“Truly great”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Decor is wonderful. Waitress was friendly & helpful. We started with DimSum basket and dumplings. Shared several main dishes along with wine. Try to visit this restaurant whenever we are in the area.

“great chinese food, nice bar”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

if you like Peking Duck or war wonton soup this is the best place East of San Francisco. the walnut prawns are a signature dish, but i think they are too sweet.

“The food here is consistently good”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

They do many items GF from the regular menu. I've had both regular menu items and GF items off the menu, as I'm not the one who needs to eat GF. This has been nice when you have someone in your party that has to eat GF, often making it the restaurant of choice when our entire family is eating together. Service has always been excellent and they've gone out of their way to accommodate dietary needs and even particular taste. I've been eating at the Fat Family restaurants since the late 1980's and they continue to have dishes that are full of flavor. If you're staying at the Marriott Courtyard or Residence inn, this is walkable from your hotel. If you are at the Hampton Inn, you are across a busy road from Fat's, but it's worth driving to.
