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

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
