Something different in Helsinki

If you are from England or the US then there are some great places to eat in Helsinki that are different from the Norm, however Saslik is different again. A Russian restaurant with bags of character and atmosphere. The Starters are great, the Mixed starter gives you a good selection but try the... read more

This restaurant should be rated higher (now 105th). Service was nice, helpful and cozy. We took Zakuska (lot of russian dishes) and Iivana's sword for main cuisine. It was fantastic Absolutely at my top 3 of Helsinki restaurants.

It´s always a pleasure to visit restaurant Saslik. It has been years my favourite place to have a long Russian style dinner in the heart of old Helsinki. Especially in wintertime the place has it´s own magic. We celebrate again our companys prechristmas party having good food and enjoyed of the greatest atmospheres in Helsinki.

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 service was of very high standard and the food was also... 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
