“Not what it looks like”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Looks good from outside, but food was soaked in oil and the burger was fluffy as hell! The salad tasted like plastic!!!! Really not worth it to go! Stuff is unfriendly!

Dear Lukkeee, thanks for visiting us at Farango Restaurant during your stay on Koh Tao. After reading your review, we do regret that our food did not reach your expectation.
However, we are very picky on the food quality that we provide to our customers. This maybe the reason that we are the longest run restaurant on Koh Tao and still one of the busiest one on the island. We still did take your review in consideration so we have tested some of the items that you mentioned such as the salad with plastic taste. Well, we did not really find out this plastic taste you did mentioned either on the salad but not also in our seasoning with is made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Italian Balsamico.
We hope to see you again next time on Koh Tao in our Farango restaurant and to satisfy with our cuisine such as our 150 reviewers with their 150 Excellent and Very good review.
Best Regards
Farango Management

“Great food, Not so good staff”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We ate here after previously trying out Sairee Sairee restaurant. The pizzas here are good and there is a good choice of toppings available.
We ate here two nights of our stay in Koh Tao and on both occasions service was lacking. The staff are good at sitting you at the table and that's about it.. we waited a very long time on both occasions we ate here before we got menus and our orders taken, although there is a large amount of staff, they seem to just be standing around doing nothing.
But both times we came the pizzas were of a high standard, much better than the other Italian.
I would recommend eating here but just be mindful that the service can be lacking.

“Good pizza”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice during 9 nights on the island. The pizza was fresh and tasty.

The island and in particular Sairee beach has a lot of places to eat, but sadly most of it is western garbage, and the food has been a huge disappointment throughout our say here.

I'm glad to say Farango's is clean, safe and nice!

“Good food”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Very helpful - turned up with 10 people and they had no trouble sorting out a table for us.
Great pizza, although a little pricey - but they are large, so you get your moneys worth!
Several friends had the pasta, and they said it was excellent. Would recommend!
