One of the best restaurants in Helsinki! Food is exellent and service is very good. If you have to choose one restaurant during your stay in Helsinki, it has to be this one. Remember to book table in advance :0)

This restaurant provides you with a very good introduction to oriental flavours. The tasting menus are well worth experiencing and each dish comes with further instructions from the wait staff. They do require a bit of open-mindedness and daring to try meats, shellfish, sushi etc. The decor is interesting and atypical, but well worth seeing.

Fantastic south asian food. The tasting menus are a good option, but volume of food can be a bit excessive. Our family’s favourites at Farang is the morning glory dish (we ask it typically with less sugar - Vietnamese style, sometimes the dish can be too sweet), and a few potions of the devine soft shell crab. Warmly recommended.

This Asian cuisine restaurant is just excellent and one of my favorites (even though the price range does not allow for regular visits :P). Every tasting menu is delicious, but if you've never been there before, I recommend the "Farang Tasting Menu" - that's the one with the famous 'Crispy Pork With Palm Sugar'. That dish is amazing - and... More

The food of my friend was OK, but mine was completely over seasoned. Our waiter brought us the wrong drinks and always forgot about us. He also was very impolite.

It's not very often I leave a restaurant feeling completely impressed. The food was fantastic, the service efficient and polite, and a really great atmosphere in there. This place definitely comes recommended.

I hadn't been to Farang yet and decided to go there with my girlfriend after hearing positive recommendations about it. While they had an enjoyable experience and other reviewers may have had as well, my experience was horrible. During the middle of our meal, our waitress and/or the kitchen forgot about us. We waited 65 minutes between our 4th and... More

Went there with friends, we all agreed that it was an exceptional eating experience. My friends tried the farang menu and, since I am vegetarian, they made an exception and prepared the vegetarian menu for me. The service is really good, solicitous and qualified. The food was impeccable: everything delicious from the begging to the end. I particularly enjoyed how... More

This place has provided once in a life-time taste experiences more than once. Fine dining restaurant, with a casual flare and absolutely top tasting food. The tastiness, freshness and flavours are key.

If you love asian food maybe the best choice in Helsinki. Waiters are extremely kind and ready to explain different dishes. Really nice experience. Prebooking is needed.
