This is one of My favorites in Helsinki. Traditional Nordic taste and reasonable price level. Nice selection of old "Kuu" favorites combined with some very good modern kitchen specialities. This restaurant will take you to the Moon (Kuu in english).

I was curious to taste some finnish food. I was not expecting such a delicious dinner. I had the "kuu menu": salmon soup, reindeer, cheese, cake. Everything was beyond my, not very high, expectations, including the waitress who was very kind and professional. I did decline the cake because i ate too much. Prices are high, but not in comparison... More

After some research, I chose this restaurant before I began my trip mainly because it has a specialty of reindeer. I went to the restaurant specifically to order the reindeer filet for lunch. The bread was very good. The reindeer filet was fantastic. It was one of my best meals on a two month European trip. The dish cost 29... More

The food was very nice and not too expensive for Helsinki standards. The staff weren't overly attentive but it may have been due to where we were sitting and they didn't mind us moving tables when we complained about the air conditioning being a bit too cold. We would have liked someone to explain exactly what was on our plates,... More

The restaurant serves classic Finnish dishes such as perch, char and reindeer, but in a modern way. The chef uses top quality ingredients and cooks them superbly. It isn't cheap though, and you shouldn't come if you want fast food as it takes time to produce food as good as this. We went in a Monday but still had to... More

We had high expectation coming here, given the high Tripadvisor rating. And Kuu didn't exactly disappoint - the food was good, Finnish food with a modern touch - so very much in the spirtit of our time. But I think maybe I found it a bit overrated still - that's more a statement about how many good restaurants there are... More

We had the Kuu menu with smoked salmon soup, reindeer fillet, cheese and cheescake dessert. The salmon soup and reindeer were both very good! Highly recommended! The wine prices were also decent at approximately 2x retail price. The finnish cheese was tasteless and warm/sweaty - not impressing. The decomposed cheese cake was very nice, but not spectacular. You would expect... More
