Unusual dinner

Loved the decor, the live music and the food. Borsh was nice and blini was big. Main course was well presented with plenty of explanations and sides. The only thing the fillet mignon I've ordered was not so warm and maybe a bit on the expensive side. Would be back? Maybe

This is pretty unique concept. An Russian restaurant only with cabinets. If you look at the pictures here you can get pretty good impression what to expect. Main taste is sour as it is with Russian kitchen. If you like it, you like this place! Music performance was a nice surprise!

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 Blinis which are really good. The main... 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
