Farang was recommended by a friend who knows her Asian food. Indeed, we got the spectrum from Vietnamese to Thai to Indonesian...Since we were new to Farang, we opted for the classic tasting menu and the Vege tasting menu. Just a few comments: SMALLER PORTIONS: taste means a taste. (For example, the green papaya salad needs NO cherry tomatoes. Less... More

Only visited Farang once but it really was a night to remember. Had the tasting menu with 9 courses. Absolutely everything was exceptional, food, drinks, service, everything! Highly recommended! Only negative thing to say is that the place is kind of hall-like, so there might be some noise. Didn't really bother us but might bother some people a bit..

At 13.30 we were refused to serve lunch. Waitresses suggested to have some shokolates instead. Not on Door nor in Internet any information about limited lunch hours.

I once some years ago had the Tasting Menu for lunch and wanted to see if it was as fantastic as it was then. It was. We had the "Classic Farang" menu with 6 courses. I had reserved a table as the restaurant used to be rather crowded. As it was lunch time it was very busy but the service... More

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend and we both had the tasting menu. From the beginning, we were greeted warmlt at the door, and the drinks were recommended with inpeccable taste - we ended up trying out several sorts during the evening, and were pleased with them all. Food was good, and even though the individual portions were small,... More

We had a tasting menu which was versatile and nice. The restaurant is very dark and noisy, the price of wine is ridiculous and they don't change your plates between the courses unless you ask for that. It's disgusting to have everything at the same plate, fish, vegetables, meet, salads. It's a successful concept - cheap ingredients sold out at... More

Was at Farang for a business dinner, recommended by a colleague. Interesting concept, nice menu and great service. You need to book tables in advance. And be ware that booking is done for a specific time slot of approx. 2 hours. For example, if you plan a long evening with colleagues starting at 6pm and going all the way to... More

We enjoyed nice dinner with group of three persons. The tasting menu was good with the exception of dessert as sweet peas really did not fit in it. My personal favourite was veel cheek - it was excellent! The service was, in general, fine but they seem to have two servings in the evening and thus we were basically ask... More

Very delicious tasting menu, 9 course one was a bit too much however, but each dish tasted excellent. Waiters are friendly and their recommendations are great. Not cheap however, but worth the occasional splurge.
