I’ve been to Farang twice before and this place never disappoints. On this occasion it was a weekend lunch with friends. Still a good atmosphere although not the busy scene on an evening. Food was amazing. Staff very attentive.
Food is spicy and flavoursome but it’s Thai. If you want bland food don’t come here!

The front of house man was not welcoming, he had a table for 4 but I had booked a table for 5. He didn't smile and was off hand!
The food is amazing but not cheap and the restaurant is very noisy.. we had to almost shout at our table in order to speak to each other.

We tried the feast (set) menu because everything sounded so good - and it was. There was one long gap between plates but it was a busy Friday night. Really friendly staff - who evidently care about what they do - took great care of us.

After long admiring the aromas coming from Farang we finally visited on Friday evening. We opted for the tasting menu and were not disappointed! A great meal was capped off with a delicious cocktail. The staff were friendly, knowledgable and attentive.

Fourth visit in a month and I'll be back again soon. Quite simply the best Thai in London and head and shoulders above the trendy pretenders to this crown down the road in Shoreditch. Fabulous value for money, splendid menu of interesting and authentic dishes steering clear of the obvious and augmented by wonderful daily specials. Great use of quality ingredients: hoggett, venison etc. Smashing childrens menu too. Short and punchy cocktail list of a very high quality. Best fried chicken I've ever eaten.Can't really praise it highly enough.

tried Farang for my birthday, we were a group of 6 (3 x veg/vegan and 3 x meat eaters) everyone was catered for food-wise and it was the most authentic Thai I've tasted outside of Thailand. The cocktails were top notch too.

This was unfortunately really disappointing. We were a group of 6, traveling to N5 because the restaurant had had a good review in the Guardian, and 5 of us went for the "Feasting Menu" option (the restaurant staff had no problem accommodating our 6th person separately who is vegan). We chose 5 starters, which seemed absolutely fine, but then were quite surprised that for the 8 dish "Feasting" option we had to choose 2 out of 3 main courses, which seemed to be quite restrictive for 5 diners. 3 of us wanted to choose the "extremely hot" King Prawn dish but the waitress warned that unless you were really into extremely spicy food, it would be too hot. We then said to the waitress that some of us did want to try this dish, but were a bit disappointed that we were indeed given a large bowl of this dish (which was nice but truly very spicy, so most of it remained untouched) and 2 other bowls of our other choice, rather than a sampling of all 3 main course choices. We were even more surprised to find that for the pudding, we were given 3 small bowls for the 5 of us - with 5 spoons but no side plates for anyone! When I told the waitress that this didn't look right for the Feasting menu, she just asked if I thought there hadn't been enough food. That was not the point at all; the main and pudding courses were presented to us as if we had ordered a couple of meals to share - this is a far cry from a Thai Feast where 5 diners paying £35pp would be able to sample different flavours and come away feeling like we had sampled most of their menu (which is what this was advertised as). We all agreed that if we had ordered a la carte, we would have each paid a similar amount, and all of us would definitely have sampled more items from their menu.

Delicious, fresh, authentic: I would recommend the spring chicken red curry - the meat was incredibly moist and couldn't get enough of the rich, intense curry.

We had a great meal at Farang with loads for fresh and authentic Thai dishes. The menu is small but there are always specials on offer which we had the duck curry and we always order the whole crispy sea bream. Fiery and full of flavours the food never disappointments and we will be back.

I've been to Farang about 4/5 times now and each time it has raised the bar. The food is some of the freshest and tastiest around - with a seriously creative and diverse menu.

If you haven't been already, you're missing out!

Amazing outstanding memorable food. Loved it. Drinks also incredible. Service was only downfall. Took ages to order, apps came before drinks, took ages to get bill. I’ll still go back though because food was sensational.

I am extremely happy that all at Farang will now be with us in Highbury on a semi-permanent basis.
As per our previous visits the flavours were delicate yet full, a really fresh sensation and the most authentic take in London on what this regions food can offer with a bit of extra creativity. The sea bass was delicious, the skin was fried to perfection yet lovely, meaty and not dry flesh. The tempura chicken is also not to be missed.

Great food and value spent nearly 4hrs in there sat eating and drinking. It was a brilliant experience. The only downside is the outside of the building is a redressed Italian restaurant but everything on the inside was great so it can't be faulted.

Having heard great reviews about Farang I’d been trying to find the time to make the trek across London for a visit. It was well worth the effort.

The food was amazing. The staff were friendly, attentive and informative. We had an amazing meal.

I always think a sign of a good restaurant experience is when you still think about it the following day. Well it’s three days later and I’m still thinking about the amazing flavours.

I can’t fault the place. Superb.
