If you want a place where you can 'chill', where the music is not crazy but takes you to a zen mode, then it's a place you must visit. The comfy seating arrangements and a reggae decor makes this place a worth remembering and revisiting. The food is decent, but there's much better places around. So if you want an... More

I was getting suspicious when I saw the chef come out of the toilet without washing his hands and go straight into the kitchen. My friend can still barely leave the bathroom from the diarrhea he got at Phat Kath.

I had a terrible experience today at Phat Kath. We were a group of people and after asking for our food and waited for more than one hour and a half, some of us we had yet no food to eat, either some of the drinks were missing.

Reggae tunes and french dining in a jungle style setting. Just step through a doorway and you enter another world. Overlooking a huge courtyard, this jungle style meandering mezzanine will make you forget that you are in the middle of Thamel. Great food and sweet reggae tunes...Positive vibrations man...
