Decent lunch salads

Lunch menu includes a salad option that you can choose two toppings out of quite many options. They were flexible to accommodate my special dietary restrictions. They also have four other options including burgers and such. Lunch includes also a soup and coffee or tea. Nothing special but close to... read more

A chain restaurant and the food isn't anything special. Quite cheap, easy access if visiting city centre but you can find much more places than this.

I happened to go to Amarillo because in the Railway station area on a Monday morning was one of the few opportunities left, especially late in time. But it was an experience not to repeat. First of all, why a tex-mex restaurant in Finland? What has to share with Finnish mood? But well, let's assume that Finnish people like tex-mex.... More

You die of hunger whilst waiting, and the food is cold. Service is crap and everything is delayed. Can't understand what their problem is.

Rather typical Finnish set-up, decent quality food with a reasonable price. Excellent chicken wings, best I have had! Good, friendly service, nicely presented food. Nothing remarkable but would go again.

I went here with a group of work colleagues on a thursday night. I have been here before a number of years ago, and enjoyed the food, but this time around I was not so impressed. The starters were a little pedestrian (we had shared some bar samplers for which the servings were a little tight) and the salad on... More

The food here is lovely! There were no tables available when we arrived so we ordered a bar in the drink whilst we waited and before we could sip our drinks a table was ready!!! The service was awesome and the food come out quickly and was hot and fresh. Great affordable place with a good atmosphere in Helsinki.

The menu has many good different option, but I think the quality will vary. Or at least, the differences between the dishes are huge. I recommend the burgers, avoid more traditional texmex dishes. Partys in the evening are good for the young people and drinks are usually cheap.

Had very low expectations for this chain restaurant. Only reason to come here was location and two hungry kids. Had to wait for food for almost an hour. The food was definately not worth waiting. Everything tastes like frozen, canned or re-heated. Never again!
