Obviously expensive but definitely not a rip off, unique tastes and despite small bites, you won't be left hungry. Beware though of the omnipresent waitresses (I can fill my water glass myself, thanks) and of the dreadful toilets.

We have visitted many Asian fusion restaurants worldwide. In my opinion Farang is one of the best restaurants in this category ever compared by taste. We tried their tasting menu, and the taste from all the courses were fresh, new and delicious. Traditional Thai and Vietnamese dishes served in an extraordinary fusion way that I have not experienced before not... More

We had fabulous dinner in Farang. Great asian flavours with succulant meat. Refreshing drinks ( thai rum with ginger, lime and mint) and attentive service. Seasonable tasting menus (3) for those who want to have a bit on everything on the menu. Farang was full already at 6pm so make sure you book a table early enough. Mental note to... More

This is a very popular place and we got the last table as we just walked in without a reservation. The prices are little high for a lunch so the most quests are perhaps business men and women. Like others have mentioned the service is excellent. We were asked if there is something we can or don't want to eat.... More

This is a place located a little of the very hearth of Helsinki City Centrum, but it is still close as it lies in the "backyard" of the Finnish Parliament building. The food is great, with very Asian inspired tastes. It is not a typical standard Asian restaurant. This is much more exclusive, both in taste, appearance and quality.

Had a long tasting menu at Farang. All the dishes were very tasteful and portions were big enough. If you are not coriander fan, this might not be your place. I definately recommend to try the Farang White white wine.

Farang is not just a fancy restaurant, for my girlfriend and I its a culinary experience, that we love to share to mark special occasions. We usually enjoy the tasting menu and have occasionally chosen the wine tasting that can accompany it. Our experience has been flawless every time, with excellent food, a really nice and cozy atmosphere, and super... More

Great Asian fusion restaurant in Helsinki. Adventurous drinks, cool staff, tasty food and good ambience. Overall a surprisingly metropolitan experience in Finland.
