This restaurant was very much hyped for a long time, but I never got around to actually go. Now when the opportunity came, I didn't really know what to expect. The food was very good and beautifully presented. We had the 7 course tasting menu with recommended wines, and I have to say that it was an experience worth its... More

Frankly speaking a huge disappointment. Compared to my previous review, the quality level of these premises indeed decreased heavily. The feeling is like having dinner in a FACTORY. I am personally not interested to listen to the conversation of the next table. I had the feeling to be in a FAST FOOD chain rather than in a premium oriental restaurant.... More

First of all, it is very difficult to find. It is located in residential areas and there is no other activities nearby except a dairy. I have to ask the shop owner for direction as the entrance of thr restaurant is not well lit. We ordered a chicken dish. It does not taate like Thai or Viet except the presence... More

Unlike its "sister" Boulevard Social, I have been a little disappointed by Farang. Atmosphere ans setting are good, the menu is good but not too impressive. Wine menu is EXTREMELY disappointing so I would not recommend it. Waiters were rushed. Ratio price/quality of product and service doesn't match.

The atmosphere and service were excellent. We were with my wife for dinner midweek and the restaurant was fully booked. At no time we had to wait for food or drinks, the service worked really well and quickly. We ate appetizers, hot food, and dessert. Overall, the food could easily be divided into two, which is the idea behind the... More

Visited with work colleagues. Be warned this venue has strict seating times. Food was amazing, the service rushed, which was a shame as the food required thought and time to savour. Would I go again, of course. Just be conscious that you cannot take too long to enjoy the experience

The Buriram tasting menu was a "seasonal" menu unlike the Farang tasting menu i have tried before. Very fresh and very unique to my tastings but all dishes were really good! We got a very nice and surprisingly private place to sit. It was on the couches but still for small portions it worked great! You really want tea after... More

The food was top of the line. The apertiffs had a bit of delay but were very tasty. We had the Buriram menu and it was one of the best Farang menus I have had. More easy than the Farang menu. I recommend this! The localities in Stockholm are more fancy but the food and service are just as excellent!

Don't try to rush through dinner at Farang... instead, take your time, order one of the tasting menus, and let your server talk you through the many different small plates with unique tastes. Do make reservations ahead of time - as the place does fill up. Do ask for lounge seating if the regular dining rooms are full... The various... More
