Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

FatCat is a chill environment, but in my view just one of many in places in Pai. I believe there are better spots in town. Food and drinks is ok but nothing special.

Nice surroundings and atmosphere. Good chicken sandwich, but unfortunately my tempeh burger fell short due to a spoiled patty. As someone who loves tofu and tempeh, I was disappointed as it was uneatable. Hopefully they changed the patty for the mushroom one as an alternative....It was quite good and tasty, although not the best vegan burger I've had. Overall, decent food but with room for improvement.More

Stop at the Fat cat bistro for a bite to eat. Lots of vegetarian and healthy options, teas and coffees. Try the mushrooms burger (no meat). This is a very relaxed, basic but fun place.

Be prepared for the 'slow food' style (which wasn't a problem for us - no rush) but you wouldn't want to come here if you are on a tight schedule as everything is prepared to order and really fresh. This makes it all extra yummy...but we could see some people getting a little tetchy with the wait whilst we were there. We would highly recommend coming here for breakfast as it has the nicest atmosphere in comparison to some of the other trendy cafes in town.More

Great place to eat for vegans and meat eaters alike. They have a really interesting and varied menu and happily accommodated any requests we made for extras. We had the tempeh burger and it was the best we'd ever eaten and also the tea leaf...salad, again which we still think about now! They have a stone oven downstairs and understand they even cook their bread in it which is a nice touch. The setting is extremely cute and very Pai, in a tree house style building with low seats and high tables. Perfect place for late morning brunch and ended up being one of our favourites which is quite a statement for Pai which has a plethora of nice eateries. The only reason we didn't give them a five is because the espresso was a little watery but had that been on point, we'd definitely give them a five!More

Visited Fat Cat twice during our three day trip to Pai and I would go again and again and again. Overall the food in Pai was incredible, but Fat Cat really tops the list. My friends and I have been traveling around SE Asia for...a few months now and this is still one of our favorite spots. The mushroom burger is the best veggie burger I’ve ever had, and the avocado toast was incredible. Everything we tried off the menu surpassed expectations and the ingredients were local and fresh. The treehouse-like atmosphere was relaxing, comfortable, and fun and we really made ourselves at home. Cannot recommend this place enough!!!More

I must say i was very dissapointed with the „smoothie bowl” i ordered. it wasnt a smoothie bowl. it was banana and oats mix, kinda baby food, bit blant, the fruit served with it dont really go with it.. And i waited for it for...ober 20mins, people who placed their orderds after me got their food first. On the positive note kombucha was great and one of the best vegan brownies ive ever had.Lovely cats of courseMore

Nice cafe with delicious breakfast. They offer almost everything like sandwiches, eggs, french toast, muesli, porridge etc. Compared to other cafes in Pai where we had breakfast, we found the coffee was not the best (that's why we give 4 out of 5). Everhing else...(location, taste of the food, staff) was perfect!More

We had an awesome breakfast with oatmeal/coconut and rice porridge/coconut both served with fresh fruits and seeds. The coffee and fruit shake are also very tasty. Everything is organic, for both, the body and environment. I give only 4 points cause the plastic straws doesn't...fit in the concept at all and it is so easy to replace them for a metal one.More
