The mouth-watering menu features everyone's favourite Thai fare dished up with creative flair including their Mixed Entrees served on a two-tier stand similar to high tea, with duck spring rolls, crispy school prawns, chicken satay skewers and san choi bow.

Interactive hands-on dishes designed to get your hands dirty include DIY San Choi Bow and Som Tum (papaya salad) and Kung Tung - a sumptuous seafood spread poured on to the table just like on the streets of Thailand.

Fans of Thai curry won't be disappointed with delicious dishes such as slow-cook beef rib and sweet potato massaman curry, crispy chicken green curry, and soft shell crab and pumpkin penang curry. In addition, there's stir-fries and noodle dishes like crispy pork with Asian greens, roast duck laksa noodles and one of Phat Boy's stand-out signature dishes pad thai chicken in egg net wrap.   

In addition, there's tasty Thai-style salads such as warm grilled beef with chilli and lime, duck and mandarin with Asian balsamic dressing, and  kale, mango and edamame with lime and coconut vinaigrette. 

If you do have room for dessert, try the highly-recommended mango mousse and sweet sticky rice with pandan ice-cream or deep fried banana ice-cream with coconut butterscotch sauce.  

Phat Boy is fully-licensed with a carefully curated wine list, craft beer and international beer including Singha Thai beer, classic cocktails and creative cocktails such as Sawaddee Muang Thai (Hello Thailand) concocted with gin, vodka, ginger syrup, Thai iced tea, egg white, guava juice, star anise and cinnamon, Tuk Tuk (gin, chilli infused vodka, tequila, blue curacao, lychee pineapple and orange juice), and Say One Mo (Sailor Jerry rum, ginger syrup, lime, mint and ginger ale).  

Otherwise, there's traditional Thai drinks like lemon iced tea, milk tea, and fresh coconut served along with soft drinks.
