Ordered a burger and green salad, burger was average at best, minimal toppings, little flavor. Green salad looked good but a dressing that was mostly mustard spoiled it completely. A second dressing was requested but we received basically the same mustard sauce again.

We are sorry about you didn't enjoy this experience. We will try to improve it when we can. There are people from different Western countries and their expectations are often slightly different. Please come back to Farang Bar and try a different item.

There’s nothing remarkable about this town; nondescript at best, so whilst nothing special, this appears to be as good a place as any to hang out for a drink. Was glad to just be overnighting.

Staff is very friendly and nice. People in the bar were very friendly. Thai food was good- the cocktails were lovely. I meant everything was ok - not that special or unacceptable.
