Fatty's Restaurant is world-famous, and this is a great experience right in the heart of Chinatown.

It's in an historic old building, the bustle and atmosphere of old Chinatown is all around, the food and service is top quality.

You have a choice of a more casual area on the ground floor or slightly more upmarket on the first floor.

It's a very popular restaurant so booking ahead is advisable.

Favorite Dish: We like to have a variety of flavours & textures with our food, so with Chinese cuisine we like Dim Sum, and that's top quality here.

We were disappointed with one of our other favourites here, the Peking Duck, which wasn't up to standard. Maybe we were just unlucky on the day.

Address: 39 Smith Street
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Right in the heart of Chinatown on a relatively main street, known as 'food street'.
