The food was excellent. You could tell it had been freshly prepared that day and was full of flavour. We got a good sized portion but was still very reasonably priced. The setting was small and cosy and had a good atmosphere. The gentleman that served us was very pleasant and spoke perfect English. Definitely a must when in Helsinki... More

Being a vegetarian, especially in Scandinavia, where not a lot of produce grows can be a challenge. So I was excited to actually find a veggie stop. the portions are huge and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Good for meat eaters as well. Only open for lunch not dinner

Being vegetarian can make travel difficult, especially when you're on a layover flight. We had just enough time to spend a couple of hours looking around the "centrum" and to have lunch. Happy Cow said this was a good place to eat and they weren't wrong. The food wasn't just good, it was excellent. Really good. For 10 euros, we... More

I went here with a colleague twice whilst we were at a conference and we both loved it! The friendly staff who were happy to tell us about the daily special in English, the wonderful food, which was great value - 10Euro for all the specials plus,bread and salad. And the buzzing atmosphere.

One of the best vegetarian restaurants I've ever visited. Place is very small, but staff is extremely polite and helpful. Food is neatly served.

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
