Restaurant is fairly expensive but not that expensive when comapared to other fine dinings. I've eaten there now 3 times and I don't have anything bad to say about the place. The food is great, the tasting menues are really larges so you definitely wont be hungry after that and the service is superb! The recommended wine menu to go... More

Amazing, classic asian fusion kitchen. Superb fine dining in a great atmosphere. Prepare with a thick wallet.

I've eaten at Farang now twice - tried the tasting menu in January and the lunch last month. The dinner was only ok, it started well but some of the courses tasted very bland. Also the roti bread was replaced by a dry piece of normal bread, and the sugar peas in the dessert reminded me of a frozen meal.... More

Having just visited the adjacent museum we stumbled across Farang and decided to have lunch three. We were not overly hungry so we chose an entree and a main rather than one of the tasting menus. The food was great but as we were about to order dessert an even more appealing main course appeared on the table next to... More

Visited Farang with friends, two couples. Had the larger tasting menu with the recommended wine package. Good choice. The food was wonderful. Extremely tasty and well prepared. It is difficult to match wines with oriental food, but the wines were very OK. The concept was good and it worked well - small, tasty mouthfulls arriving at a steady pace to... More

As an Asian myself, I have high standards for Asian cuisine. In the many I've tried in Helsinki, nothing came close to being anything worth going back, heck, even worth paying for. Farangs exquisite approach to Asian dishes ignited my palate. The flavors, presentation and quantity deserve 5 star rating. Granted they are a little expensive and hard to get... More

On business in Helsinki, I dined solo at Farang after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and recognizing my craving for an Asian meal. The 6-course vegetarian tasting menu is near-perfect (only minor issue was an unpleasantly bitter tempeh that fortunately did not detract from the rest of that course). The grilled eggplant with peanut sauce was outstanding, as was the zucchini... More

We were visiting with 12 of us and we were served really well. Try the tasting menu - you will be surprised to find out new excellent tastes. High end, high quality are keywords for this place.
