I can't wait to go back! It has been the best Thai I had in London. Everything in the menu from the drinks to the deserts was delicious. The food took me back to Thailand. The service was brilliant, very efficient and welcoming. As mentioned, I can't wait to be back!

Great was able to book a table that morning for birthday meal. Food was delicious, service good but £10 charge for bringing a birthday cake is a bit mean.

We had 4 small plates and 3 large plates between 4 of us and had leftovers. The minced prawn curry large plate was simply amazing.

Great food, the duck massaman was slightly disappointing for me personally, but in no way “awful” just a little too much lime for myself.

In addition to the above with rice, roti, wine and beer we were shocked how reasonable the bill way.

Will definitely be back.

A wonderful meal, the food was glorious with the same attention being paid to the sundries, with what were possibly the best roti I've ever tasted, as to the main dishes.

Food was delicious as usual, however the drinks are limited to the menu. So if you’re up for a martini with a spicy Thai kick, you’re out of luck - not on the menu. Also this space gets unbearably loud very quickly. Arrive early, before the dining room fills, if you’d like to hear your date.

Dear Lisa, thank you for taking the time to feedback. As we are a small business we do not have the capacity to offer a full range of cocktails yet . We do hope to create a bigger cocktail list in the future when we build a bar. At present, our focus is primarily on the quality of our food and a modest drinks list that can not possibly please everybody. Apologies for that. Best wishes from all of us at Farang.

The most amazing food. Some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever eaten - and such incredible value. The ONLY quibble: it’s often very full, and with the tiled floor and walls it can get very noisy. But a fantastic kitchen and serving staff.

My first time was five stars for everything . This time the waiter was very unhelpful and grumpy . When I said is this dish too hot he said this is a Thai restaurant. One of the side dishes was too hot So we didn’t eat it . I asked for a virgin mojito and he said he didn’t have sugar syrup so I had water. When I went to the loo I saw the specials board and that you did mock tails he never told us about these. We had Nikita waiting on us last time who was excellent.

Thank you for your feedback Maria. We do not actually offer a virgin mojito on the menu. As small restaurant we do not offer all cocktails as we don't have a bar manager. We will discuss your comments with the staff. Best wishes from all of us at Farang.

The food was delicious. We had the tasting menu. There was lots of food and they served it at a speed to suit our large group who wanted to chat.

The only thing that could be improved would be a wider selection of spirits and an espresso machine, as they don't do coffee.

I would reccomend only on high quality of the food but would advise to be aware of potentially very poor service (3 different servers none of which knew what was in their special's sauce and as someone with a nut allergy this was quite concerning).

Everything about Farang was fantastic.

The food was sensational. We tried a variety of small plates and a couple of mains. The smoked chicken noodles were incredible.

One downside is that the waiters do not get the tips - which is a huge problem.

Thank you Leah for taking the time to feedback to us. We are really pleased you enjoyed your meal. As the manager and employee of Farang our tips are share on daily basis between everyone at front of house team. We used to share the service charge too but it was so costly for the business and in our pop up stage we were nearly to close so, as a time we all agreed to up our hourly pay\salary and use the service charge to invest in improving our work space and restaurant. We are treated very well

Friendly restaurant with delicious small plates and interesting larger plates. However I thought the larger plates ( priced around £17-19 were not as good value as the smaller ones and actually not as good. The crab and prawn laksa was great although too much sugar for me.
Will definitely be back but think will just order for the small plate menu

This Thai is definitely among the best in London. I was going to order the crispy sea bass as I've heard it's fabulous, but changed my mind at the last minute and ordered the prawn the flavours were amazing and the complimentary rice was a very welcome accompaniment. I don't normally eat much rice, but this soaked up the broth perfectly. The turmeric roti is a must-order as it is out of this world....it was crisper than I expected, so not ideal for mopping up the sauce, but delicious to snack on!
However great the food, if the service isn't friendly or is too over-bearing, it puts me off returning to the restaurant, but here the service was spot on and I'll definitely be back.
