Time Out says

The latest addition to the 'Phat' fam is made for hungry diners on a budget

The “phat” restaurants are an unofficial Brisbane chain that also includes Phat Elephant on Adelaide street. As the latest edition to the family, Phat Boy pushes the playbook in a more adventurous direction. Their interior features colourful posters and rocks in steel netting that form native stone walls. 

The set menus are great value at $35 or $45 per person, depending on your hunger level. Both include delectable spring rolls and satay chicken skewers, but the larger one comes with a truly masterful pad thai chicken served in an egg net. Presentation is a real highlight at Phat Boy, with everything served in unexpected formats. For example, the Kung Tung is an enormous seafood stir fry drenched in chilli sauce and poured directly onto your table. Tuck in with your hands, medieval feast-style.
