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...

My review here is biased because I love a game of backgammon. The only hit I got in the city when I searched for places to play was this bar. It was a bit hard to find but it's seclusion is part of it's charm. Good decor, decent music and the staff were great. When I mentioned the game they... More

Exactly what you'd expect from a reggae bar. Happy hr cocktails, bongs, open fire, great music and atmosphere. Dont order the crepes.

We went looking for a place to have a few drinks before places started to close and found Phat Kath. As you walk in and climb the stairs it almost looks like you're climbing into a tree house decorated with lights. We immediately regretted not coming earlier because the atmosphere is great. We only managed to get a few drinks... More

This place was pretty average for me. Whilst it has an awesome atmosphere (I loved that I got a blanket when I walked in!) the food was really average. I ordered the buckwheat pancake, which I had eaten at a few other places around the city (for a quarter of the price) and LOVED! This one however I didn't even... More
