Farang's Vegan tasting menu is expensive but worth it. If you just want to have something good, do not book a table here. But for special occasions and if you are willing to try the fireworks of flavours, go and try the tasting menu.

Pros: Delicious, Atmosphere, Vegan friendly
Cons: Expensive, Usually fully booked, Non-vegan restaurant

Vegan tasting menu was perfect

Posted on 07 / 12 / 2013

I went to Farang for my birthday and had the Vegetarian tasters menu. Entire menu wasn't only vegetarian but Vegan. Of course as pr most restaurants and menus, the menu must be ordered for the whole table. All of the following are vegan CHA PLU LEAF WITH TEMPEH, WOK FRIED CARROT AND CHESTNUTS (it's a main dish, and was my favorite, I want to go back and have it all to myself, the flavours were amazing!), HOLA HOLA- a dessert, MORNING GLORY, CRISPY FRIED SALT & PEPPER TOFU, GREEN CURRY ASPARAGUS . And of course say that you're vegan so the chefs can take extra care when preparing it. Friends have said that Farang is the best value for its quality, and I appreaciate that its the only real high end restaurant in helsinki that caters to vegetarians

Pros: Excellent food, Good value for a high end restaiurant, excellent service
Cons: Very busy on saturdays, must make reservations, could have more vegetarian options

Not for vegetarians

Posted on 07 / 28 / 2011

This is a trendy, very expensive restaurant, hard to find, with very few options for vegetarians. Add 5 cows if you are not a vegetarian. I trust the one or two items on the menu was good--but was so unbelievably expensive that I was reluctant to order such pricey food from a non-vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: might be good for meat eaters, might be good for millionaires
Cons: expensive, not geared for vegetarians
