Unimpressive, tasteless food. Not worth the steep prices.

The food was tasty and I would recommend the tasting menu as there is a lot of variety. The staff were friendly but we were left for a long time after we had finished eating and were not offered drinks, dessert or the bill for ages.

Food was ok but very expensive for what it was. Service was very slow. Dessert offerings so expensive, £5 for a scoop of ice cream that tastes like soap? Really wanted to love it but did not.

Delicious food, very packed and quite noisy as it was a Friday night but didn't detract from the experience. A bit on the pricey side but was overall very good.

Only second time I've been here, the last being when it was still a pop up. Really professional now and food now on offer that bit more subtle.

Potential great but inexplicably over sweetened dishes. The dining room is packed out with tables and chairs to the point that the waiter kept bumping into my chair all night. The resulting noise levels are such that it’s difficult to have a conversation. Obviously a neighbourhood favourite but we came away thinking that what could have been a memorable experience was being sabotaged by some bad decisions

This place is always amazing. Every time we have friends over and they want to go out, this is the place we take them. Never had a bad dish. I struggled to find good Thai when I moved to the UK until this place opened.

Absolutely incredible place. We have lived around the corner for ages and finally went. We had the tasting menu which is a selection of 5 or 6 small plates and two main courses with sides. It was an amazing selection and really good value for money. Would definitely recommend!

The only thing I used to dislike about Farang was the lighting. They’ve since updated the restaurant with warm filament bulbs, and the place is pretty much perfect now. Amazing food. Amazing staff.

FLAVOUR BOMB! Hidden gem.

Deep fried chicken and venison curry being my favourite. (We were warned that the curry was "extremely spicy" - but definitely not - but I guess I'm Malaysian...)
The other dishes paled in comparison, but only because of the intense rich flavours of my two aforementioned dishes. (The other dishes being the aubergine salad, cod spring rolls, beef curry and pork.)
The only let down was the roti, which was over done and became really hard and chewy within 10-15mins.

All in all, great experience - will be visiting again!
PS We were recommended 5 dishes between the two of us. Stick to that recommendation!

Absolutely delicious Thai food. We had the tasting menu which was a lot of food for 2 people but gave a little bit of everything, definitely worth it.

Great food that often marries Thai methods and food philosophy with British ingredients (a beef cheek curry was a perfect fusion). Lots of fresh herbs and great use of lemongrass almost suggest a Vietnamese vibe. Clearly an old Italian restaurant setting but a lively atmosphere and attentive wait-staff. The tasting menu at £40 was almost over facing - not sure I could have coped with the £45 feaster! Will be back.

Amazing food but the restaurant itself could really do with a face lift. Tables are very crammed in together, lighting is bright and it looks like an old fashioned Italian neighbourhood restaurant - not super in keeping with the Thai food! Also food was brought out in very quick succession, which when combined with the rather crowded atmosphere, left dinner feeling a bit rushed and not particularly special - a bit of a shame considering its quite a pricey place. Food is incredible though and what I'd go back for.

No complaints about the food at all . All very delicious and satisfying! My only complaint is the high level of noise present. The restaurant was not totally full but the lack of any sound dampening material (eg curtains or carpets) made having a decent conversation with my dining partners extremely difficult and uncomfortable.

The food is very good but the choice is somewhat limited. I didn't have much fish or prawns in my main dish & there is only one type of rice available.

My wife was celebrating a major birthday and so we wanted to go somewhere special. We chose the two people tasting feast, and while expensive for what you get, it offers an eclectic taste of the kitchen’s range of flavours and textures. Food was cooked and presented to a high standard and nothing disappointed. Ambient surroundings and the staff are well-trained and efficient. While the service felt a tad rushed - there was little time between dishes arriving - we were never urged to finish the meal by a particular time although we were on our way to a local pub after 1h 15m. Alcohol and cocktails good value. Important to book in advance as extremely busy at peak times.
