“The best lunch in town”
Review of The Fat Aubergine

The Fat Aubergine
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 October 2016

This is truly a hidden gem. Despite being on a busy road, this restaurant has a country garden ambience. Secure parking is available close by. The menu has a decent number of items and caters to every taste. The vegetarian wrap, served with a delicious salad, is the best I have had anywhere. My two companions each had the open bacon and avocado sandwich with a mixed salad, and not a crumb was left. A pitcher of water containing several broken berries was available on each table for slaking thirsts, but also provided a colourful touch. The food is freshly prepared and appetizingly presented. I want to go back,... soon.....

Lovely setting to meet friends and business collegues but don't be in a rush. You need to linger and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Margie is a great cook and host.

Thank you Margie for such a delicious lunch. So nice to find a place that does fresh salads to order. I had 2 different salads served on one plate, such a great idea. You have to try the Salmon Salad and the Thai Beef Salad. Little Gem of PMB. Well done team Aubergine

I really enjoyed having lunch here recently. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is fresh and very well made, and the prices won't hurt your pocket either. I live that they are willing to cater their menu depending onyour preferences eg half/half of different meals. It is a more intimate old school set up with "granny"/kitch style decor. A great place to grab a healthy meal during the day.
