Had the chance to visit this place a normal Wednesday evening with a good friend and business partner. Was looking for some good thai food in Helsinki, and Farang came up with really good recommendations. We ended up ordering the Farang tasting menu accompanied by a large Diet Coke and a non alcoholic drink. The service in this place is... More

We are 4 people spending a dinner here and we took the 5 courses menu. We took also a surprised cocktail each of us. The bill ended up around 460 euro and it is over average price range. The dishes are very good and the atmosphere was nice. It is a mixed of thai and nordic ingredients. Worth a try.

Farang has been among my favourite restaurants in Helsinki ever since they opened. They serve Asian food with a twist, and the ingredients are always extra fresh. I normally go for the vegetarian tasting menu - it's easy, fulfilling, and definitely worth the price (59€). The service has been excellent so far - there are many waiters attending the same...

Finnish cuisines with oriental taste. The taste of the food has been always really good, no disappointments. This is the place to go if you want something different, but not too exotic. I can recommend.

I really like this restaurant and I recommend the tasting menu options if you plan to visit. I usually try something that I would not normally order as a dish. The food items were great and the drinks were amazing. They also offer wine pairing with the different courses and those are usually pretty good. Reservations are recommended. Only improvement...

Went on a business dinner. Ordered a non-vegetarian tasting menu (I liked this idea very much). The portion size were very appropriate. The staff used to tell everyone briefly about the dish being served. The wine was awesome. Although a small place but the decor was nice and warm. The mollusks were good and the most beautiful thing was the... More

I had a business lunch at Farang with 5 other persons in mid-June. At this time the restaurant was not as full as it normally is so it wasn't as noisy as in the last time (October 2014). Two persons who were with me were vegetarian and one of the reasons why I selected this restaurant was the vegetarian menu.... More
