Phat Eatery

23119 Colonial Parkway Suite B-2 | Katy

Phat Eatery is one of the original restaurants in Katy Asian Town. The owner had been involved in restaurants in Houston’s Chinatown for several years and took a chance on building an authentic Malaysian restaurant in Katy. It was a decision that paid off, now that Katy Asian Town has grown into a dining destination.

The main dishes are excellent, in part because of all the thought that goes into all the individual parts -- including the sauces.

“That curry dip I could just drink, it’s so good,” said Shepherd. “Anybody and everybody is going to love that.”
