    Food was delicious, we couldn’t decide on which dishes to have, so we ordered the whole menu for our table of 5. Everything tasted fresh with interesting flavours. Will very much be returning! Waiters were taking extra care with hygiene by wearing gloves. We left very impressed

    Great little neighbourhood restaurant serving imaginative, fresh and brightly flavoured Thai food. Ours came as it was ready, so as it happened a dish at a time, and that worked really well for us.

    I love Farang and brought my boyfriend there to try, and whilst the food was great, the service wasnt and all our food came out in the wrong order with the main first! It was very loud unbelievably hot inside too (the windows were steaming!). Will definitely go back again for food, but would love it if the service was also upto scratch.

    Booked for a Birthday. Was called and emailed for confirmation numerous times. Was also called to tell us if we didn’t arrive on time the table would be given away. We arrived on time and the restaurant was empty. Being that we booked for a birthday they placed us next to the kitchen their tills and telephone. Despite the place being empty. We were then told again by the staff that our table is only available until 8pm, despite the place being Empty! Being that we are Thai ourselves, we were told how to eat the food, which was patronising. Also we lived in the area and thought to try out our local restaurant. Big mistakes! Very pricey for mediocre food and absolutely poor service. ไม่อร่อยเลย อย่าไปกินเลยค่ะ

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
