The food is good including a lot of Finnish specialities in the buffet. The athmosphere is nice with elemets from the old country side culture. Anyway, this gives a too restricted picture of the culture of Finland.

My favorite Finnish buffet in town. You can taste lots of traditional Finnish food in the restaurant with not expensive price. The owners are very kind and nice.

Konstan Molja was one of our favorite restaurants in Helsinki. The buffet was tradtional Finnish food and all of it was great, especially the salmon soup. The atmosphere is very wam, almost as if you are in someone's home, and the family cooking/running the restaurant were very friendly. Definitely recommended for anyone who wants to experience traditional Finland; another visit... More

This is a family run business in central Helsinki. It seems to be one of the very few restaurants serving traditional Finnish food. We had a buffet dinner with choices of forest mushroom soup, reindeer, lamb and anchovy, beef and elk meatballs, and salmon together with a wide choice of vegetables, a barley risotto and condiments. They also have a... More

Amazing place owned by amazing people. The food is excellent, every bit of it. For example, even a well-known salmon - I thought it was the first time i felt the real taste of it. Nothing is oversalted, and everything just perfectely cooked. The owners communicated with us in a very human and friendly way. I happened to forget my... More

People who fault this restaurant for not being all that gourmet are missing the point. This is an accesible introduction into Finnish cuisine. It is also affordable, accomodating and friendly. We showed up far earlier than our reservation time and after a couple of minutes our table of five was cleared, set and ready for action. Whether or not this... More

Food is very comfortable and tasty. In case you're a weekend tourist you definitly should visit. They serve all Finnish simple dishes such as deer, salmon, herring and so on.

It's very different in terms of its ambience, food and value for money. Not perhaps for everyone - it's all a bit cramped, and the self-service process is not entirely straightforward - but the food is beyond reproach, the proprietors are unfailingly helpful in explaining the nature of the dishes on display, and it's hard to imagine that there is...
