Great decor, good food and excellent service

I have been in St. Petersburg, but don´t have much knowledge on Russian food, therefore didn´t even have big expectations when going to Saslik. But I was very positively suprised and have actually planned to visit the place again! The decor is exceptional, very warm and interestingly kitsch. The... read more

Very good food and authentic atmosphere. Private function rooms for hillarious and noicy get-togethers. Vodka selection is not shy.

Visited Saslik first day after their renovation was finished. Service was excellent as always. We ate from the "old" menu and food was OK. Only comment could be that portion size in the zakuska plates is really not that big. The whole idea of this zakuska is not achieved when you are splitting salmon pieces into to in order to... More

Great Russian food in a 100% Russian decor restaurant. Service very good with a very big choice of different Russian dishes (all of them worthy to try). Wine selection I believe is one of the best in Helsinki (still you need to pay much for good wines but at the end is your choice....). I listened once that this was... More

Great old school Russian décor with the staff dressed in traditional Russian formal dress. Service was impeccable and there were a male and a female singing traditional Russian songs. Food presentation was excellent, although taste wise it was good, not great. Be careful if a shot of vodka is offered with your soup as it is 8 euro extra! Dinner... More

It is a very lovely restaurant - I could have enjoyed an evening just looking around at the decor, pictures, items on the shelves etc. The food prices are some of the highest I have paid, but I enjoyed everything. The staff are beautifully and handsomely dressed in traditional outfits. The idea of sour pickles served with honey was a... More

Beautiful and peaceful restaurant with fantastic atmosphere and delicious food. Pricing is on reasonable level but the style of the place makes you forget it.

Great restaurant with excellent Russian food. Stuff is dressed in the Russian tradition and rooms are filled with Russian decorations. Stuff is polite, but a bit stiff. The "russian" musicians were a good treat.

This was my first visit for twenty years. No, really... The atmosphere was just as I remembered -charming. The service was friendly but the food was less impressive. The blini was good and the Baked Alaska fine but the "Klassikko" main course "from 1972" was a disappointment. Piles of sauerkraut and onion smothered any taste that the small amount of... More
