I was recommended to attend this restaurant by my friend who has eaten there before. I was right away pleased with the family atmosphere, made me feel very cozy and welcome. The food was tasty and the portion sizes made pricing extremely reasonable. Definitely recommend it for someone visiting Santa's village!

We were glad this restaurant was just next to our hotel. We patronise the restaurant and like the ala carte dishes....the dishes suited our taste. On our subsequent visits, we tried the value for money buffet and it did not disappoint too. The dishes were quickly replenish and the dishes were not oily or overly spicy which most buffet will...

My daughter was sick since we arrived in Rovaniemi, high fever. So we tried to find her comfort food (Chinese or Indonesian food). Based on reccomendation from our hotel receptionist, my husband decided to try the restaurant. We ordered white rice, egg fried rice, chicken corn soup, that's all good!

What drew me was the large number of non Finns here - most diners were of Chinese origin. I ordered soup and dumplings to start. Both were excellent and tasty especially the chicken and sweetcorn soup. The waiter spoke good English (I cannot get over peoples remarks about how their English was not good enough - this is northern Finland... More

They disappeared in couple of hours. None of us has any allergies and we have eaten Chinese / Other ethnic food before many times! The services of the... More

This place was packed with a tour group, but we just went to the counter and asked for the buffet. It was 9.90E and it was all downstairs. So, it was quite a spread....just ask for hot sauce. I believe tea/coffee was also included. Quite a deal. Lot of seating downstairs.
