Went to eat but was almost instantly put off eat eating by some customers talking rubbish. Ordered a Leo and went. The filth coming out of some young Australian's mouth wasn't very nice. He claimed to be the owner but was probably talking rubbish. If he is the owner I wouldn't recommend visisting. If not I just visited at the... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit The Farang Bar . I am very sorry about the experience you had but can assure you that the young man you refer to is definitely not the owner nor in any way connected to the business. He was simply a drunk and badly behaved customer. I have spoken to... More

Stopped in for a rest from the road. I had the watermelon juice drink and a pizza. Both were delicious . There is a stage for live acts. Sorry we missed the show but the pizza was good.

Came here for dinner with my boyfriend after coming in on the train. We ordered the coconut milk soup with chicken, sweet and sour chicken on rice, and a ginger tea. We were extremely happy with everything. Tried to go back the next morning but they were not open for breakfast. Cool, green atmosphere. Funny asian music videos playing behind... More

There's very little to complain about at the farang bar. Al fresco dining on comfortable large wooden tables. Low lighting creates a pretty relaxed vibe. Beer at reasonable prices . Very friendly efficient wait staff. My chicken burger was excellent. Good portion size and extras like tomato and lettuce. Fries weren't cooked perfectly . They were a little soggy. Portion... More

We are a simple, friendly, family run budget-style guesthouse with only eight twin or double bed rooms. One room of three single beds. No dormitories.
We have our own restaurant offering both Thai and Western food.
Our public bar is popular with travelers and locals alike, well stocked with extremely cold beer and specialty cocktails.

We help with the full range of travel advice and ticketing.

The English owner has lived locally and on the islands for nearly fifteen years so is very well connected with many dive shops and resorts on all islands, particularly Koh Tao where he still spends a lot of time to keep information up to date.
