My parents have been eating at Fatty's since 1979 and to this day, it's the first place we stop to eat when we return to Hawaii. We usually get the same thing - Won Ton Min (soup), Singapore Noodles, and Beef and Broccoli. We love this place. The won tons are excellent - the best I've eaten.

The prices are very reasonable and the staff is very friendly - they speak a variety of languages and usually always understand your order!

There is limited seating inside and a few seats outside (for waiting).

The ladies were friendly and the menu was easy to read and easy to order. Not a sit down place. But once we sat down to eat the take out, it was quite good. Not exactly the BEST, I'll give you that but definitely a nice place to go when you're just jet lagged and need some sort of comfort Chinese food.

We read about Fattys online and decided this would be a place we would try. The service was fast and the ladies were friendly. The food however was in the garbage can within 2 minutes. It was not something I could stomach. The noodles were bland and the sweet and sour was mushy and the flavor was unappetizing. We were super excited about trying to eat more local or "authentic" type foods when in Hawaii. After this experience we stuck with Cheesecake Factory, Hard Rock and other more known places. The prices compared to everywhere else were great, but we had to throw it away and buy lunch elsewhere. It generally has great reviews so it might be worth trying yourself, but it was so disappointing that it ruined our foodie experience. Just temper your expectations.

Every visit to Waikiki has us going to Fatty's for lunch or dinner or both on our first day and many more times during our visit. A genuine no frills authentic Chinese restaurant which the staff say has been going for some 30 years. Dont go if you want waiter and table service and alcohol. You sit at the bench and watch as the staff work at a frantic pace to serve your meal from a limited menu. You may have to wait outside until a seat becomes available but it is well worth the wait. Tucked away behind the international Market Place on the right . Look for the Fatty's Chinese Kitchen sign above the entrances . The final point is that it is inexpensive and if you don't want the wait you can bbuy take-away. If you like Chinese food you will love Fatty's. We do.
