Besides serving vegetarian and organic food, they also know how to make it tasty! This is something that not every veggie place is able to do.

Lunch was excellent! Not filled with spices to create flavor, as found in many vegetarian places, but great, healthy food with generous portions.

What can I say. An amazing restaurant with amazing staff and amazing food! The restaurant is on a side street just off the busy city centre but it has a lovely calm feel to it. The food is fantastic with everything fresh, tasty and plentiful, we would have had one of the desserts but couldn't find room for it. If... More

I agree with the reviewer below - very friendly helpful service, cheap for very generous portions, great atmosphere. We were unsure when we arrived about committing to a vegetarian meal, but the very detailed introduction, explanation and advice the guy serving us gave in perfect English and his lovely personality made us decide to try it. We had the combo... More

After spending three weeks on a boat with only carnivores as my fellow passengers, I was thrilled to find a restaurant in Helsinki that served delicious vegan and vegetarian fare. I felt like I was coming home and the warm, friendly welcome and assistance I received from the staff at Zucchini certainly cemented that feeling. This small, cosy diner has... More

It's a pity the Zucchini vegetarian restaurant is not open in the evenings or weekends, since it is my favorite lunch place in all Helsinki. If I have the chance, I always go there. Never had a bad lunch. The menu is short, but then you don't have the difficulty of choosing - and it's always been delicious. It's not... More

During a recent visit to Helsinki I decided to try out lunch at Zucchini. Nothing in the place was is in English (except a “watch your step” sign in a doorway between seating areas), but the friendly guy working the counter explained to me what the daily special was. As far as I can tell, the main entree of the... More

We had two lunches at Zucchini There is a meal of the day which is advertised in Finnish in the window and, as our Finnish is not at all good, we looked forward to the surprise. Both meals were delicious, with well thought out and co-ordinated ingredients. There was more in a serving than I could eat. It is always... More

Travelling in Europe looking for vegetarian food can sometimes be a struggle so when we saw this one with good reviews on TripAdvisor we tried it out. And we weren't disappointed. Excellent food, friendly atmosphere, good location. There were only a few dishes to choose from, but what they did they did well. I had the main meal, which was... More
