Second visit just as good as the first. Took friends with us this time. Had great fun working through the varied menu options for both starters and mains. Good advice from our waiter regarding quantities with no attempt to make us over order. All the dishes were clearly made to order, fresh, vibrant and so full of flavour. It was a taste sensation.

Food was delicious, all the staff were super helpful and knowledgable. The only downside is the place - looks like a budget faux Spanish restaurant. But hey, the food is good.

Thank you David for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your evening. Just to let you know, the restaurant used to be an old Italian trattoria belonging to Seb's step dad. We are self funded and so therefore very slowly re-decorating as and when we can afford it. Hopefully it won't be too long before the interior changes. We look forward to seeing you again in future. Best wishes from everyone at Farang.

I went late one week night for a meal with my girlfriend and thought the meal was good, although not spectacular enough to tempt an immediate return visit. There were delicious and inventive touches using seasonal fruits and ingredients displaying an understanding of Thai cooking and flavours without pandering to the usual recipes, which I greatly appreciated.

Great find! The food was delicious and the waiters were nice - it’s not a massive place so it can be a little cramped but we went late (9.30) so people started to leave and it was less hectic. But well worth the trip from Chelsea!

Delicious authentic Thai food (spicy for those of you who don't like spice!), great service (even when some of our guests were +30 mins late!), a great bottle of house red, and some absolute bangers playing to get you in the mood. Wonderful Thursday night dinner with friends and incredible food. They were also very accomodating when one of our guests had a shellfish allergy.

we went on Saturday at 0945 after the theatre. The place was almost empty, it did not look as great as when I came early on when it is busy, the food was medicore on this occasion, as the place became more empty we even had less attention from the staff. All in all, it was ok.

Fantastic food with delicate flavors. Absolutely loved the use of fruit and the balance of flavors. Service could have been more attentive. We had to ask multiple times for the bill. Also, the pandan-banana ice cream didn’t taste like banana, and they should have done something more creative with it then put it in a bowl. Hire a pastry chef! Would love to go back and try a beef curry - has the shrimp one. Photo is of shrimp and fruit on betel leaves. Delicious. A little stingy to charge for a 4th one. Just do a portion of 4!

We ordered the kale, sea bass, tiger prawns and a vege dish/vege starter. The vege curry was the best and the garlic roti was exceptional.

The food was good but it seemed to have a lot of collateral in/on it which made the enjoyment of the sauce difficult to fully appreciate - the flavour and taste was very good however.

We had the sea bass which, imo, was overpriced for what it was - I was expecting the picture on the website for some odd reason which had a whole fish but you actually get a slab of fish on top of a bed of crunch and drizzle of sauce. That was disappointing and definitely not worth £18.

Flavours, taste and curries are good and we may have enjoyed it a bit more had the restaurant had air conditioning but it is still worth a visit.

Food is amazing and so fresh but our waiter clearly put in the order late so the pacing was very delayed and we only got on plate at a time in a strange order with some mains before starters. Great value for the food though & delicious quality.

Dear MariaFrancesca, thank you for taking the time to review. As well described on our menu our food does not come in a particular order and we do not have starters and mains. The idea is to replicate a Thai family style of dining. Also, some of the dishes need more time to prepare. We hope it did not spoil your experience. We do hope to see you again, best wishes from all of us at Farang.

Some of the best food that we've had in recent years. We both thought that going for more small plates over the curries was the better option as it meant that we got to experience a wider range of ingredients and flavours. Prawns in betel leaves was by far our favourite dish but everything was very good (as was the service). The roti bread was very salty which maybe took something away from the the more subtle flavours so I would only order that with curry if I went back. The restaurant is always busy and the volume of the conversation is quite high so I'm not sure that people with sensitive hearing would enjoy it.
