Farang is one of the best restaurants for sure. The tasting menu is excellent and the service is unnatural for a Finnish restaurant.

Wow! What a great food experience! It was difficult to find the restaurant at it is located slightly away from the lively pedestrian areas but it was definitely worth the effort to look for it. They have so many choices and everything looks so good! I took scallops with mango. Very tasty and beautifully served on 4 shells. The service... More

This is the Helsinki restaurant that I had always wanted to try but just not had a chance to. Having stayed extensive periods in SE Asia in my youth, this style of cuisine has a special place in my heart. The concept is social dining as with other places by same owners. The menu is absolutely packed with familiar things... More

This is one of my very favourite restaurants in Helsinki. Every time you manage to book a table in Farang you know you're going to be pampered in every way. The service here has always been excellent: friendly, relaxed but still very polite. Try their drinks, they are great. A tasting menu is a good choice if you're not sure... More

We visited late in evening, just me and my wife (grandma taking care of our kid). My wife had visited several times and I had been looking to visit for some time. Rather large restaurant with several areas for dining. Saturday at least was very popular, the restaurant seemed full and bit noisy. There were several larger groups and then... More

The food was again absolutely excellent but service was a bit disappointing. One of our group ordered non-alcoholic cocktail but he got it with alcohol. And the staff more or less only laughed for the situation...:/

We had a team dinner at this restaurant. My rate is not excellent only because I am not a fan of this kind of food, and the person who organized the event did not ask about preferences. However, it seems to be the best restaurant in town. The service was great, and so was the atmosphere. Nice place to go... More

No. I've been here two times, and I find the service excellent. The food however doesn't live up to its reputation. Don't get me wrong, on the tasting menus some dishes are amazing. But some just aren't up to par, the taste combinations and textures simply do not work.

Had the Buriram - menu with extra portion of caramelised pork. We asked for a warm apèritif and were very satisfied with the drink - not too sweet, cinnamon and cardamom flavours but still not too "christmassy". Paid over 70euros per person (food, drinks not included) which is a lot, but on the other hand, ten delicious dishes..

From the time you enter the restaurant you will be assited by very friendly and professional staff. You will get a full explanation of all the dishes on the menue and unlike in various other restaurants they will even ask for potential food allergies. Start your meal with a cocktail from the bar. Their cocktails are not the standard once... More
