Cross kitchen

Cross kitchen often comes out at the top. Faring is a very good example of this - and it is cosy and easy to reach.

Can you imagine fresh and unique flavors with a nice atmosphere and interior. If you also like an Asian food, this place is suitable for you. We ate so called tasting menu 62, which included seven different courses and suitable wines for each course. It was an amazing taste experience. If you cannot drink so much wine, I will recommend...

We came with a big group and we all had the tasting menu. The food was extremely delicious and had lots of flavor. Some of the foods had a little bit too much of coriander in our opinion. The food came quite fast but I did not feel like they were trying to get us out of there as soon... More

This is a really great place. Attentive waiters great food - especially the soft shell crab and the crispy pork was a fantastic experience. One thing that impacts the overall impression negatively is that the acoustics in the room is rather bad and that it quickly get's very loud. But still a place I would love to come back to.

Absolutely one of the best southern Asian food restaurants in Helsinki! The service is unforgettably good and the athmosphere is lovely. I recommend you to order tasting menus! And remember to make reservation in advance, since this is highly popular restaurant!

Interesting - nice premises. Wide menu' with different fusion Asian dishes. Good service Large Portions. Wine list is OK (nothing too special). Indeed a premium choice in Helsinki. Of course the price is according to the type of restaurant and the standard city prices - prepare your wallet!

The place is very noisy, you can hardly hear anything. Food is better than average, but service ruins everything. Dishes are served by random waitress. Between some dishes you have not eated earlier one before new arives. With some dishes you have to wait like 30 minutes before new arives. There is potential, which is however not used. If you...

Farang in Helsinki is a very popular modern Asian style restaurant - and for a reason. We tried a vegetarian tasting menu, a collection of seven different dishes. All were excellent and provided tastes we never have experienced before. Also the non-alcoholic drinks were excellent. Highly recommended!

I visited here 4 years ago and if I had written this review back then I'd be hyping Farang like the rest. However now things felt different or my memory is flawed. After all the years it's still always full at Saturday evenings. And so it was when I went there with my wife. You can feel the tension when... More

I visited Farang together with 20 colleagues and we tried the 10-dish dinner which was very good. The dishes are small to ensure that everyone can eat all ten, which is good. Still, kitchen have managed to create so many mixed tastes into the same dish making it a great experience. If you do not like coriander at all, this... More
