“Fantastic food in good setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

For someone who likes and knows his/her South-East Asian food this is the place. Exceptionally well-cooked small dishes made from great raw materials. Although a bit pricey, the value you get is fantastic. Service was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. Unusually, Farang appears to have made a point of having sufficient staff so that you as a client don't feel you are chasing for their attention. The room hosting the restaurant is probably worth its own history. I really liked the combination of Asian food in a Jugend-style setting. Go there if in Helsinki.

“Smells and Tastes to take you away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Farang was recommended by a friend who knows her Asian food. Indeed, we got the spectrum from Vietnamese to Thai to Indonesian...Since we were new to Farang, we opted for the classic tasting menu and the Vege tasting menu. Just a few comments:

SMALLER PORTIONS: taste means a taste. (For example, the green papaya salad needs NO cherry tomatoes. Less of everything else.
WHAT'S WITH THE ELECTRIC OUTLETS ON THE CEILING? it looks messy and unfinished.
WHAT'S WITH THE SMALL TABLES?
WHAT'S THE ATMOSPHERE YOU'RE GOING FOR HERE? Seeing the washing up on our way to the bathrooms detracted from the over all atmosphere
WHAT'S UP WITH THE BATHROOMS: a little more attention here...

Very nice service. There's work to be done on the ambience but the staff is helpful. A bit more attention to the wines: the choices for the tasting menus were a bit on the sweet side.

“Absolutely one of the best restaurant experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Only visited Farang once but it really was a night to remember. Had the tasting menu with 9 courses. Absolutely everything was exceptional, food, drinks, service, everything! Highly recommended! Only negative thing to say is that the place is kind of hall-like, so there might be some noise. Didn't really bother us but might bother some people a bit..

“Arrogant service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

At 13.30 we were refused to serve lunch. Waitresses suggested to have some shokolates instead. Not on Door nor in Internet any information about limited lunch hours.
