Delicious food and excellent service - well reccommended!! We had the summer tasting menu, fresh and versatile. Also the reccommended wines complimented the courses well.

We (4 adults and a toddler) had a tasting menu for dinner. In addition we had some refreshing drinks. The food and the drinks were good. The restaurant was full of people, but everything went smooth and well.

First Northern African restaurant I have ever been to in Finland, or in whole Europe actually. It is quite good, you have your lamb and your couscous and that's all I remember right now. I noticed that the place is open until midnight which is curious.

This was probably the fifth time I'm eating at Farang. I remember this restaurant being the forerunner of the Finnish fine dining scene and every dish was a pleasant surprise of tastes and presentation. The food is still good, but it's not surprising anymore and there are plenty of restaurants in Helsinki, which serve much more interesting dishes.

So the food is still good and this is the most important thing, it's just I've eating similar food four times before. The service was rather average and it was peculiar that they chose to sit different parties really close to each other even though half of the restaurant was empty. The food was brought up at uneven intervals, which sometimes meant that we were still in the middle of previous dish and the next dish got a bit cold before we got to it. They were really accommodating about drinks and dietary restrictions though.

we were introduced to this restaurant by a friend who is local. It is frequently booked out, but we were lucky to get a table for 4. From the start the waiters knew their stuff and were excellent in recommending appropriate dishes. The menu focusses on Asian food and the tasting menu we had, was one of the best Asian selections I have tasted. the recommended wine selection was also excellent and decanted at the table. the waiter was sensational with just a wee bit of cheekiness that was endearing. We were very impressed with the whole package. Believe they are opening an outlet in sydney Australia.
