excellent tasting!

We had the Farang tasting menu with sommelier recommended wines. Excellent and new fresh tastes with simple raw materials, herbs and spices. Absolutely worth visiting!

Good food and excellent service! Drawbacks: it was Friday night and our table was in between 2 others, so it was a bit noisy

This is a nice restaurant in old and a labyrinthine building. The staff were very friendly and competent and told about the ideology of the restaurant very well. The menu was a really interesting mix of eastern kitchen. Our meals were really tasteful. Really worth of visit!

We had the classic menue paired with the basic wine package. This "kit" has the same price as a four dish tasting menue at any guide michelin one star restaurant so our expectations where high. The service was excellent; friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good, but compared to the price it did not reach to the level we had... More

We had the tasting menu and boy was that a trip down food orgasm lane, everything was tasty, spicy and each dish an experience in itself. The very professional and friendly staff coached us through the menu and each course. They also suggested suitable wines and were really glad to explain the chefs vision regarding each dish. I recommend to... More

Pure celebration of flavours! Haven't still got better tasting menu in Finland (visited 2012). There are some customization for gluten free diet but does not affect the experimental journey of tastes.
