Chef Sebby Holmes launched Farang back in 2016 after trading at street food markets throughout London. A year later he took up temporary residency in Farang's current home in Highbury & Islington. After excellent reviews, he took on the space permanently after his step-father retired and since, has gone from strength to strength.
Farang was recently inducted into the National Restaurant Awards top 100 and awarded a MICHELIN Bib Gourmand, which we have kept four years running. We also received the Thai select award from the UK Thai Embassy which certifies authenticity and the freshness of our ingredients.
We’re a young team of enthusiastic individuals, who over the last few years have bought our passion and skills to the table.
Parties of six and larger, kindly contact the restaurant directly for reservations. These larger groups will be offered the shared feasting menu only and a deposit of £10 per head needs to be taken to confirm the booking, which will be deducted from your bill.

    On a wet and cold Thursday Lunch time we finally reached Farange wet and weary . We were warmly welcomed and seated in the comfort of a small but perfectly formed restaurant. The Thai food was exceptional, from the baked Kale special to the amazing seabass specialty. A must visit for anybody that likes Thai food cooked with care .

    Farang waa a lovely venue to visit for dinner. The food felt authentic with a modern twist. It was evident to see that the chefs have visited Thailand and really captured core essences of each dish. Would highly recommend the Aubergine small plate and also the Pork Belly small plate. 5/5 !!

    The food at Farang was very well cooked and presented and the ingredients really very good. You aren't going to get these ingredients in many Thai restaurants in London We had ordered three small plates and hadn't finished one of them when are big plate and curry were also served. This didn't really fit and waiting 5 minutes till we had finished would have been nicer . The 3stars for the food were just that it didn't suit my taste,there was no wow factor I like a glass or two of red with a meal but they only had Italien wine on the menu of which I'm not a fan so had a beer instead

    We had a wonderful meal and had been wanted to go for months. We live locally and pass it busy all the time. We ordered 3 small plates and a lovely curry- so much food! The starters were generous and tasty- with a special nod to the Gak Prik! The curry made our taste buds blow , my only little niggle would be a lack of meat in the curry.

    The food was incredible and the service attentive but not intrusive. The recommendation of the turmeric roti was an addition I didn’t know I needed until I had it. Good value for the flavour bombs! Just wish they gave an option to add tip on card reader as we didn’t realise until too late it didn’t include service and it was deserved and had to scrape what cash we had.

    Lovely atmosphere inside, the miang bites and whole sea bass were amazing! But the chicken satay was essentially just some satay dip and a cracker which let the rest of the dishes down.

    It’s the second time I’ve been back to Farang and the food is just as good as I remember it. Unbelievable flavour and textures, lovely service, and although not cheap, I think the price is reasonable for the quality of cooking. Only warning - the suggested serving sizes are for people who are very hungry!
