Third time i've eaten at Farang, and each time I struggle to find the place, since it is down a side street and has a nondescript entrance. This aside, the venue is elegantly minimal. The service is attentive in the northern European tradition; earnest descriptions of the courses delivered with precision and enthusiasm for the food they prepare. The food... More

I was there with my wife to celebrate one of our special occasions. And what can I say, we had one of our best meals that day along with nice service in a nicely decorated place. Although the restaurant is in Finland, it is not serving finnish style foods. It is actually serving southeast asian fusion foods. Being a person... More

Great fun & delicious food for a group of 7 family & friends, all having the tasting menu. There was more than enough to eat, even for the 2 teen boys! Such a warm experience with great timing, excellent service with attention to detail, good recommendations & willing accommodation for 1 gluten free by adaptation of the tasting menu just... More

Ordered the tasting menu consisting of 8 small dishes to share. Actually the food was quite delicious with lots of interesting flavors but the waiters served the dishes so quickly that we never got time enough to swallow one dish before the next was on the table. At one point we had 2 dishes waiting for us when we were... More

Great food. Try the Soft Shell Crab and the Crispy Pork with Palm Sugar Caramel. The tasting menu's are good but I think it's best to choose from the list and share.

Subtlety is not the name of the game at Farang. They think they are hot stuff, but the ham handed preparation of the food left you wondering if you could tell what you were eating most of the time. The mussel appetizer was nice, but it was also over the top with acid and extranious flavors. The main ingredients in... More

Was there for a business dinner with a large group. Had a set tasting menu. Excellent food. Probably the best mussels I've ever had (I'm not a big fan of mussels, but these were spectacular). I didn't like every course equally well, some were definitely better than others, but that was more about taste than preparation. And a huge amount... More

It's asian fine dining - the best place from Tomi Björk. I have been there about ten (10) times, and it's one of my favorite restaurants in Helsinki. Farang menu & wines is about 120€/Person. It's cheap/good value if you compare it to another Finnish fine dining places. The first dish of the farang menu (cha plu Leaf and smoked... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The beef satay starter and pork belly main course were very good. The size of pork belly main course was enough for 2-3 people so you may wish to order a 1/2 portion main course. There is an excellent choice of cocktails. The staff were pleasant and efficient. Price is a bit steep 60euros per... More
