Probably the best restaurant in Tampere and it's Malaysian... food is top notch, service polite and with a smile. Prices are very reasonable for Finland. Will go again :-)

We ended up in Borneo by looking the stellar reviews and the place didn't disappoint. The lunch buffet was really good! The food was mostly quite spicy (hot), for example the satay chicken had quite much kick in it. However, that was perfect for the hot summer day. The rice (white and curcuma-colored was nicely cooked and shrimp chips ok.... More

Food was good, but the restautant is quite small. Hard to find a table on a saturday afternoon. Prices were average.

In my opinion one of the best restaurants in Tampere. I like about the atmosphere there, it is a small, more private place. The meals are fresh and have a large variety of tastes. The service is very friendly.

You can have either a lunch buffet on weekdays or to have a dinner in the evening. Food is a bit too spicey for me. Plus if you are seated next to the kitchen your clothes will smell like boiled in it. Service is good.

We have eaten here so many times and the food has always been excellent. The service is very good, the restaurant is very small but that doesn't matter because you can always get take away. One of my favorite restaurants in Tampere.

This was my first touch to Malesian food - and it was really good! I want to have more, soon! We took take away, and the portion was so huge I had two proper meals. Really good value as well, main courses around 15 euros.

I've been coming here for lunch for a long time already and occasionally take away and dinner. This is my favorite asian restaurant in Tampere and has never failed. Quality of food is always great. Hearty service every time as well.

I have been to this restaurant before and had dinner there, giving it a very good review back in 2012. I had the opportunity to lunch there in February 2014 and have to upgrade it to excellent. The same small shabby chique restaurant is still there, but at lunch time they have a Malaysian buffet at 10 Euros flat, including... More

Did stay in Tampere on business and looked in Tripadviser to avoid the standard hotel restaurant and Borneo did sound good. After a small walk i did find the restaurant just a few steps from the bigger road. From the outside it does not look as i had expected. But do go in , the restaurant is very small with... More
