It's a good place to try Finnish food in good price (c. 20 euro for all you can eat buffet). Food is like home made, staff is very nice and all that in nice interior. Moreover, the owners are Polish-Finnish couple so if you're by any chance Polish you can nicely chat with the host!

Konstan Möljä is the perfect place to go if you want to experience really good and traditionnal finnish and karelian food. I studied a semester in Helsinki but only discovered this place after more than half of my stay. Nevertheless, my first experience there encouraged me to go again. The four times I have been there, the quality of the... More

If you want to try traditional food go here to have a great evening and awesome food.! It's a buffet for 10 euro. But you get everything for special for Finland.! There are just some sweets at the end missing, for example the traditional cinnamon roles... That's a only negative point. Because when you are eating this food you need... More

Very good food served in a very rustic environment. The staff was really nice and helpful - One lady even taught us how to mix the right toppings for each main course!

If you like to taste a Finnish home made food you can find many higher quality restaurants for that. Konstan Möljä is not located near the centrum. Decoration is very nice and staff too. Food is "home cooking" Karelian style. I had a buffet.

This place won't get a michelin star for gastronomy but it gets my 4 stars for honest home cooking and service with a smile. Buffet with something for everyone.

Buffet where you can try many types of local food including reindeer meat, salmon and side dishes. I was expecting a bit hyped place due to the recommendation in Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor ranking, but I found a quiet place with nice decoration and really feels and tastes like home food. Great introduction to finish cuisine. The owner was... More

I have been to Helsinki several times now, but this is simply the best restaurant I have visited! Original Finnish cuisine, cooked by a very friendly couple. The pans are put on a table and you can take as much as you want for just 19 euros. There are starters, soup and several main dishes. The food is delicious, as... More
