In 1967 Fatty Weng’s chef started serving up Cantonese cuisine from a small roadside stall, and the rest they say is history. Several successful restaurants in a number of locations later, Fatty Weng is now a fixture in Chinatown and regarded as one of the city-state’s best Cantonese restaurants. Located on Smith Street, a trip here is a must for any lover of Chinese cuisine. Tuck into Cantonese classics like the Peking roasted duck, chilli crab, honey pork ribs, the special pan-fried vermicelli or Fatty Weng’s famous deep-fried soon hock drizzled in a special sauce made from a secret recipe, that has kept diners coming back for more and more for over forty years. To guarantee a table at Fatty Weng Restaurant, making a reservation in advance is advised.
Good experience eating in the middle of Chinatown. Good service, good food, good location, definitely be back here in the future again! Happy Chinese New Year all!
The restaurant was very helpful in seating us near the window that overlooked Chinatown and they provided complimentary birthday buns when they knew it wAs my daughter’s birthday. A wonderful experience in all!
Food and service is top notch. Location is easy to find as well. The Beijing duck is nice. Price is affordable. I will visit again
The Peking duck is crispy and delicious! Very big duck for 2 person and ended up take away the balance :) worth trying !
1. It was good that we were allowed to enter the restaurant and be seated about 30 minutes before the booking time. By the way, the restaurant had it that my booking was 7.30pm when the online booking's latest time for the day was at 6.30pm. Not sure where the mistake came from. Nonetheless, we were still allowed entrance. 2. Food quality was very good especially the chilli crab although my Korean friends would have loved it more spicy. 3. The thing to improve is really the between what was ordered and what was served. We had ordered medium size of the vegetable dish - the vege with 3 types of eggs. What was served was a small plate meant for 2 pax. although when the bill was presented, the waitress did ask me to double-check, how would I know that we were served a small plate instead. It was only after my wife and I commented that the vege dish was expensive i.e. $23 plus that I asked the waitress what size we were served and she confirmed that it was a small one. Although it was rectified efficiently and with much apologies from the staff, including another small mistake i.e. charging 2 portions of the nuts instead of 1 portion which we have asked for, it would do the restaurant (being among the top 5 best restaurants in Singapore for chilli crab especially) and Singapore's reputation better if the staff were more careful or diligent in the service. They should be trained to observe more carefully and take initiative to clarify or check if the customer has ordered that size of food. This is because there were many foreign visitors who patronise the restaurant and I doubt they would even ask or know the difference in portion of the food service. 4. But overall, it was a pleasant evening and the staff were generally very helpful and friendly.
We had dinner there on Friday 17 Nov 2017. Luckily, I spotted this restaurant on Quandoo booking site, otherwise I won't have discovered this hidden gem in a tranquil small square at Smith St, Chinatown. When each course arrived it looked tempting to the eye, and tasted even better. We had Peking Duck, fried soon hock, honey pork ribs, stew noodles with shredded duck meat from the Peking Duck, wasabi prawns, sharks fin soup, stir fried black pepper and a veg and tofu dish. Most were well presented and tempted our taste buds, and tasted great. The stew noodles was one of the best I've tasted, soft and flavoursome. Each course was served by friendly and helpful waiting staff. The portions are good. A special thank you to the manager Eric and staff Anna who were so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Thank you for the lovely experience, we shall be returning shortly, together with friends.
Had long heard of this place since they were in geylang area. Finally had the chance to visit at their present convenient location at Chinatown. Place not big but they have a second level for big groups. What is impressive is the service which left a good impression. The waitress was attentive and came immediately with a scissors to cut the mushrooms n vegetables for ease of eating for the elderly. When we were struggling with the big Sri Lanka crab, she came over with gloves to break the pieces. Overall excellent service and attentiveness to customers in pouring tea, changing plates, answering to enquires etc. Of course the food was good. Very fresh and retains original flavours!
As the 2nd level was booked for some event, the restaurant was kind enough to call to inform in advance. In the end, I was allocated the outside table which was ok, except that it was near an interactive wall which was pretty noisy. Food wise was pretty decent and the service staff was responsive. Will visit again.
we were given a table on the 2nd level which is quiet and cool. Service from the staff were attentive.Portion of the food served were to my expectation . Overall experience ; Good We had Peking duck: Veg cook with 3 type of eggs: Lemon Chicken: Steam Patin Fish in Soya Sauce: Pork in fermented bean paste : Horfun: Duck meat with dried chilie
Overall i gave a rating of 4 due to the following reasons. Though the food quality was good in the beginning, the food quality became rather salty towards the end. The service staff seem to be under-staffed hence they were slow in their service. Overall ambiance was good but the seats were quite close together and did not allow movement around.
