Went here for a business dinner and the place was great, good athmosphere and great food. Nice tasting many with a lot of different tastes and the accompanied wine meny worked nicely with the food. Highly recomendable if you like Asian food and tastes.

Fantastic Asian food with a modern flair. Best with a group of people to share the experience. Make your reservations well in advance because they book quickly.

Four of us tried the Kao Sok? tasting menu.... Was amazing!! I was literally dying of a food overdose by the beef panang. Had to bypass it to save room for the dessert, which was sublime! Really enjoyed the pork, and also the.., actually no. I enjoyed ALL of it and I will definitely come back for more culinary OD!

Before eating here I had heard plenty of good things about this restaurant. We had 'Kao Sok' tasting menu with wines to match. The food was amazing. It is incredible how the chefs combine different flavors so well. I would have never thought that caramel and pork would taste so good together! Not only the food tasted delicious it was... More

I've been here a couple of times and can't stop thinking about the pork belly! It's the best I've ever tasted, and that's based on a large sample size. However this isn't just about pork belly. I really recommend skipping the tasting menus and sharing several of the mains. The variety of flavours is fantastic. Cocktails are good but very... More

Farang has probably been my favourite restaurant in Helsinki for several years. Last Friday night the food was again delicious and elegant as was expected. But then something happened during the service of our tasting menu. First we noticed that the courses started to appear in a rather hectic tempo, which we left without comment. But when our fifth course... More

Best service, unexpected but delightful "taste menu" that is both nourishing, filling, and beautiful in presentation. Fantastic cocktail, lovely ambiance, you leave feeling like this is how special occasions should be. Smooth, relaxing, worth every euro.

I live in Thailand, so when the friend I was visiting recommended a "Thai" restaurant called Farang (foreigner) in Finland, I was not thrilled, especially when she told me the price to expect. For example, 25 Euro for Som Tam (pappaya salad), a dish that I normally pay 0.50 Euro for in Thailand, at most. But I went along with... More

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
