Take the full menu with recommended wines! It's an amazing experience. We eat at Farang a couple of times a year and it's always well worth the high price tag. Highly recommended!

This one of Tomi Björks restaurant takes you to trip in Asia, cross Asian flavors are well combined and balanced. There is 3 different tasting menus on the list plus alacarte. The first menu is amazing but this time tasted seasonal menu ja it was totally spot on. Great thing is that vine can get as half portions. This place... More

Only one dish in the tasting menu that I was positively surprised. I guess 4 visits with no major menu changes has me left feeling slightly disappointed 😞. This is not to say the food 🍲 wasn't good just that I'd been there already...

Without question the restaurant offers medium to high quality South-East-Asian style kitchen and you eat with your eyes - the portions of the tasting menu are nice to look at. However, I think they are due to the amount of orders prepared earlier and some of them were not really warm enough at time of delivery to the table. I... More

Farang used to have a reputation as a best Asian restaurant in Helsinki, due to the rich tastes, high quality ingredients and unconventional dishes made with care. Food is good, no doubt, and the restaurant is worth visiting, but I would not rank it as best Asian. If you'll visit Farang often enough you'll notice that dispite of the the... More

I visited Farang in a Wednesday evening to celebrate my mothers birthday. We both chose a tasting menu "KHLONG PHRAO". It was simply awesome. Exquisite tastes, fresh ingredients and a simplistic beautiful setup. Service was impeccable - friendly and very professional. Interior design was beautiful - again simplistic. The only problem was a high noice level.

We had very nice evening with family of four in Farang. Service was very nice and we sampled lot of different portions. Sea bass was the best and we loved soft sea shell crabs. Only thing we did not enjoy was the massaman that included cinnamon for our surprise. Everything else was perfect. Will definitely visit again.

I had been waiting to visit Farang for a few years and my expectations were sky high. I am glad to say they were met - mostly. Firstly I must comment on the excellent, efficient chat function the restaurant has on their website - booking a table was easy and the customer service on the site excellent. It is nice... More

Nice Restaurant, food good with a twist. Tasting plates are pushed by the waiters a bit too much... look at the Al a carte menu before deciding. The place needs some "mood music" to lift the atmosphere.
