Lovely food and service, prices OK. Decor (inherited from previous owners) needs a bit of work, and more subdued lighting would help, but don’t let that put you off. Really excellent menu.

I really liked this place. I walked in and it feels like an old 1980’s Italian restaurant lots of heavy timber furniture. The staff were all adorable and serious about the food and describing it at the table. The food was great, we over ordered and had just about everything!
It’s not straight Thai, papaya salad perfectly pitched the prawn curry made my partner sweat on impact it is seriously hot. Macho hot. Beef shin was very tasty if a little gloopy and the new chicken satay dish was a guilty pleasure as it’s basically sweet but soup with chicken the roti was fab.
We had to be carried out without pudding.
I’ll go back for sure but possible I’ll be a little more discerning

Food is amazing!!! I’ve been to Farang more than 10 times and the food has been excellent every time. Atmosphere still needs improving, the restaurant is not fully renovated but would not stop me from going there. Service varies, sometimes very good, other times quite average.

A friend recommended Farang so I took my partner for his birthday. It was during the Christmas period so the staff might have been more stretched then usual, but I was pretty unimpressed with the experience. The service was poor, getting a drink order took ages and we weren’t given much info about the menu or recommendations when they finally took our food order. The constant stream of takeaway collections didn’t help with service as they seemed to get priority as staff packed the food. The atmosphere was also lacking, no music and the interior looks like an old Italian trattoria which is a bit odd for a Thai restaurant. Positives - the food came quickly once ordered and the sea bass and chicken starter were both delicious.

This was my second visit to Farang and it was every bit as good as I remembered, if not better! Fantastic, creative food packed full of flavour but handled really sensitively so each ingredient is given room to shine. Well worth a visit and it was no surprise that whilst every other restaurant on the road was quiet on a chilly Wednesday night Farang was buzzing. Highly recommended!

This place is always a win. Delightful innovative food. It is very busy, with good reason, it is by far the best restaurant in the immediate area and worth visiting even if you are not from near by. The food is authentic and they don’t hold back on the spice , spices are flown in weekly from abroad.

My two dear friends and I came to Farang for a celebration last week. We were blown away. The food, cocktails, EVERYTHING was so great. A chilled vibe, very unassuming, yet so so special. The food was sensational. I'm now desperate to go back with my husband and my dog (even better that they are dog friendly at certain times!).

Thank you Farang for such a wonderful evening - can't wait to return!

Farang offers a small menu with big flavours and amazing cocktails. Staff were friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The only slight downside was that it took a while for our plates to be cleared from the table at the end of the meal. I would certainly recommend to others looking for Thai food with a flair.

Food was good and very different. We had a sharing platter for 2 at 40 pounds each. The dishes had lots of flavour, were quite small but I just didn't really know what I was eating. They tell you the food comes out in a random order which is strange and it felt very rushed. I think it's well over priced. Also not many dishes on the menu. Overall the staff were nice. Nice experience but wouldn't go back. Not my cup of tea. Cocktails were nice.

My second visit this year confirmed Farang to be one of my favourite London restaurants.
The food is excellent. The turmeric butter roti is now a reccurring dream of mine.
Casual atmosphere and a touch off the beaten path only add to its charm.
