    Enjoyed a meal at The Two Fat Monks for our anniversary. May never of come across this great place if we hadn’t of been given a Good Food Gift Card. Great place, great food & Service in the suburb of Fairfield, I had the Gnocchi & my husband the Salmon that we both throughly enjoyed. Will definitely recommend to family & friends.

    Booking was easy using the online facility. The menu whilst not extensive had a good variety. Both meals ordered (Lamb shoulder and Asian beef salad) were quite plentiful so you weren't left hungry, great variety of ingredients and flavours leaving us "Pleasantly Surprised!" The waiting staff were very helpful and polite. Will put this one on our list to go back to.

    My family and I celebrated my birthday at Two Fat Monks and the food was amazing! Service staff so friendly and helpful. The building is a beautiful setting and I can’t stop raving about the coffee! Can’t wait to go back again.

    We've been to Two Fat Monks a few times now and the food can be really amazing and portion sizes are worth the money. However there are always long waits to be served and get your food. They really need to have a better floor management system so customers can be attended to in a timely manner as this has been an issue since the store opened. In this visit, orders came out wrong and it took a while for someone to come over and fix the problems. Won't be going back anytime soon
