Amazing food...

A must place to go if you are fond of quality food. We went as a Gp of 17 people and tried almost all type of non-veg ranging from chicken to fish to shrimps to pork. Each was great in its own way. But the best of the lot was pork which is exceptional.

Terrific set menu, with wine option. The food was very authentic and combined extremely well. The food is not spicy, I assume for the local clientele.

If you like that fusion cuisine and open to different flavours that's where you should try. I think price for the value is good.we ordered three courses ( sea bass, clams, shrimps & rice ) for two and we hardly finish them. Don't forget to try their special cocktails and the Finnish beer Sihteeri! Make a reservation before going.

This is by no doubt the best Thai food I've ever eaten. Rich in flavor, texture (and price...). The cocktail I had as an aperitif was also good, but I found their beer selection to be a bit poor. The tasting menu is definitely worth taking, however it contained one vegan course that I found to be a bit bland.

Been to Farang with my business associates and i found that the food was actually very nice. The taste was a pleasant blend of asian flavours and i really enjoyed. We happened to take only the vegetarian dishes due to the presence of a majority of vegetarians in our group. cocktails were just o.k but the mains and the desserts... More

If you want to be pleasantly surprised and have a fancy experience, this is where to go. Obviously expensive but definitely not a rip off, unique tastes and despite small bites, you won't be left hungry. Beware though of the omnipresent waitresses (I can fill my water glass myself, thanks) and of the dreadful toilets.

We tried their tasting menu, and the taste from all the courses were fresh, new and delicious. Traditional Thai and Vietnamese dishes served in an extraordinary fusion way that I have not experienced before not... More

We had fabulous dinner in Farang. Great asian flavours with succulant meat. Refreshing drinks ( thai rum with ginger, lime and mint) and attentive service. Seasonable tasting menus (3) for those who want to have a bit on everything on the menu. Farang was full already at 6pm so make sure you book a table early enough. Mental note to... More
