Beautiful food. Not at all your standard Thai. Beautifully balanced and exciting flavours - one of the best Thai meals I’ve had in London.

This place is unique on so many levels. There is a great variety of food. Many flavours and textures. Service is very efficient, and fun. Ambience just right. I feel lucky to have Farang on my doorstep.

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.

Thai food here is like no other bog standard Thai restaurant. Creative, authentic, fresh, hot and yummy. I love the Gai Prik, and the salads are delicious too. A jungle curry is a must for the depth of flavours and of course, the chilli.

The food was absolutely delicious. Only one dish that didn't feel very authentic Thai (we lived in Thailand for 3 years so were delighted that so much of the food tasted so delicious and Thai!) which is remarkable.
Service wasn't very attentive (hard to get attention) but when we got the attention of someone they were lovely, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
Food was truly fab and we will be back on another special occasion.

When we entered the restaurant, the atmosphere was not what we expected - it was empty and the inside did not look like much. However, as the place filled, the atmosphere changed dramatically (it was packed at the end of the evening).

The food we had was some of the best Thai food we've had! Very interesting spice combinations and everything tasted fresh and well balanced. It is not the typical Thai food one gets in London, and the restaurant is about Thai street food. I wonder if it has some Isan influence?

As a group of four, we had four small dishes and two large ones, which was more than enough. One of us is allergic to wheat, so we basically ordered all gluten-free dishes on the menu. All the dishes were excellent, and our three favourites were the Gaeng Massuman Neau (green curry with braised beef cheeks), the Crispy Belly Pork Salad and the Miang.

The great meal was let down a little bit by the service. Our waitress came every few minutes to take our order as soon as we arrived, while we were clearly not ready for ordering, and there were a few simple mistakes, like missing cutlery or serving a bottle of beer without a glass, and trying to take away plates while they still had food on them and we were still picking away at them.

Overall, a great culinary experience and we will come back!

This was my second visit to Farang, the first being a couple of months ago, when I was blown away by the excellent food. On this visit the food was very good but not quite as good as before. Some of the dishes we had were the same as on my first visit and some were new to me and in all cases the food was just not quite as zingy and well balanced as previously. However the Miang kham and the fishcakes were wonderful and very much lived up to expectations. As before, service was good (our waitress was lovely) but the noise levels and (dis)comfort of the seating were definite negatives. I would definitely return but will probably choose to first explore other places in a similar price bracket.
