Good for a business lunch with vegetarians

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... read more

Nice place. Didn't really know what to expect as places like this (known for who started it) never seem to deliver. I have to say we both enjoyed it. Went for the tasting menu, as was recommended. My partner had the wine package and was impressed with the staffs knowledge and manner as was I. The food came at just... More

The menu and the interior of the restaurant makes a promise of something they cannot deliver. Someone might love their food, my I'm not a big fan of Southeast Asian cuisine. Despite that some of dishes were really tasty, but there was something wrong woth the service. For example I was given a drink menu but never asked if I... More

Business. Table for two. Prine time 18.30-20.30. Weekday. Tables were tightly filled with people and we got ourselves in with two days before hand reservation. With no hesitation we chose the recommended tasting menu, with one of the best suited white wine for the carousell of dishes. Results: 10 points from both sides of the table. With no buts or...

Had booked a dinner at this thai restaurant a few weeks back with my client, and must say that these people really know how to serve food! The quality of food was one of the best I have eaten in a long time, and the theme of being explained about each and every dish being served, was a unique experience.... More

You need to book months in advance... however they were very understanding about us coming 1 hour late due to airport problems. we had the 5 course tasting menu and everything was outstanding. the sommelier was friendly and knowledgeable but wines were ridiculously expensive. apparently cocktails were excellent.

Went to Farang with my fiancee and had the Tasting Menu with eine package. 8 courses, most of them good. Nothing spectacular though. The wines were not up to the standard - especially since the price is quite high. And only 3 wines for 8 courses. Would expect better selections from the sommelier.

Farang serves South East Asian fusion food, and its has become kind of an institution in the Helsinki dining scene. It was one of first restaurants in Helsinki to offer social dining. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of an art museum in the center of the city. On our latest visit we enjoyed smoked trout on Cha... More

The tasting menus are considered to be shared, which is a great way to get an overview of very different Vietnamese and Thai dishes. High quality ingredients, perfect preparation and nice presentation make it definitely worth to visit Farang, which really stands out from most restaurants in Helsinki, which is a bit a culinary backwater. Some dishes are very elaborate,... More

We were there and tried their tasting menu "Ratchanaburi" which was composed of 9 courses of delicious Asian fusion food. Great interesting tastes combined with nice staff and beautiful cocktails made our evening!
