If you like that fusion cuisine and open to different flavours that's where you should try. I think price for the value is good.we ordered three courses ( sea bass, clams, shrimps & rice ) for two and we hardly finish them. Don't forget to try their special cocktails and the Finnish beer Sihteeri! Make a reservation before going.

This is by no doubt the best Thai food I've ever eaten. Rich in flavor, texture (and price...). The cocktail I had as an aperitif was also good, but I found their beer selection to be a bit poor. The tasting menu is definitely worth taking, however it contained one vegan course that I found to be a bit bland.

Been to Farang with my business associates and i found that the food was actually very nice. The taste was a pleasant blend of asian flavours and i really enjoyed. We happened to take only the vegetarian dishes due to the presence of a majority of vegetarians in our group. cocktails were just o.k but the mains and the desserts... More

If you want to be pleasantly surprised and have a fancy experience, this is where to go. 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 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.
