Very homey ambience. Nice food and good value. You can try reindeer here if you've never had it before.

“Best quality price ratio in the whole Helsinki area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

It has been great to find this place for eating. The lunch costs less than 9€ and it includes soup, meat, rice, salad, bread, water, dessert and coffee. There are usually 2 options for the meat and one option for dessert. The taste is totally homie. The price for dinner is around 18€ (I guess) and they told me that there is usually salmon. Going to this please you can expect typical Finnish food with really good taste, good portions and cheaper than anywhere else in Helsinki.
The hospitality is also remarkable.

“Excellent and one of the best choices in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

We found the place on trip advisor which said it was good, local cuisine and not so expensive. The food was excellent and had many meat dishes. As it it was a buffet there was the opportunity to try many different dishes, reindeer, meatballs and salmon were among my favorites. The restaurant was cosy and friendly and a nice place to spend an evening. overall I would highly recommend. If there was any downside at all it would be that it's a little difficult to find. On the map it looks as though it is a little far from the centre however Helsinki is a small city so in reality it is less than 1k. Highly recommended.

“Cozy atmosphere, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We had dinner and expected the quality of food to be higher for it to completely match the value and because of the ratings. As a Finn I I've had better traditional foods. The mushroom soup had hardly any mushrooms in it and was watery. The Karelian pastries were like the ones one can buy in the grocery store (not the real thing). Warm dishes were not warm enough (pots are heated from below). However, the staff were super friendly and the atmosphere was warm. It was good to see a restaurant that attracts tourists in Helsinki. From a local's point of view I would want guests to be served the best Finnish kitchen has to offer.
