Shared food, the best food 

In Southeast Asia, food gathers families and friends together, around a shared table. Food adds color and flavor to both everyday life and special occasions. In the same vein, Jim Lim invites you to his table to have a good time, indulge, and share new experiences. 

Table reservations

Behind Jim Lim is restaurateur Matti Wikberg and his team at the Farang restaurant. Jim Lim is like Farang´s easy-going and uncomplicated little sister. It is a relaxed, Southeast Asian living room for city dwellers, finally with its own address in Helsinki. Stop by for a beer or some noodles along your evening stroll or come with friends and spend the whole evening with us. 

Prior to the Telakkakatu location, the Jim Lim ambiance has been around to enjoy at food-court style restaurants in Stockholm, Sweden, and Pirkkala. Most recently, Jim Lim´s dishes can be enjoyed at home via Huuva. However, Jim Lim on Telakkakatu is `the original´, where the vision of casual and vibrant Southeast Asian restaurant is given the space and attention it deserves.
