There are two Farang Restaurants in Phuket: one in Phuket City, next to the bypass road, and one in Cherng Talay. The food at both is almost identical, but the experience at the Cherng Talay restaurant is slightly superior.
Farang Restaurant is a long-time establishment founded by the former head chef of a five-star hotel. The menu features pasta dishes, pizza and some great meat dishes. The food is exceptional and, for the price, it’s a real shining light among places to eat in Phuket.
The pasta dishes are especially good, as is the beef sirloin. The presentation is really out of this world for such a small restaurant. Most of the dishes are fusion meals, with a few Thai offerings thrown in for a local touch. A rarity among Phuket eateries, the house wine is palatable, too.
Farang Restaurant can also lay claim to serving up the best brownies in Phuket, as well as a fantastic apple tart.
