“Very special and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Visited this restaurant based on it having the most and highest ratings on Tripadvisor. The atmosphere is indeed sort of like a living room dining situation. You can get the food you want from the pots and pans in the middle of the restaurant. They're constantly restocked. The taste and quality of the food is very good and the dishes are Finish dishes. The staff is very friendly. Highly recommendable, but do expect the place to be full if you arrive around dinner rush hour since it doesn't have that many seats. I paid 22 euro voor a beer and the dinner buffet. Quite nice for Finish prices!

“Inexpensive buffet, traditional home cooking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Small family run restaurant. All you can eat buffet. Think of home cooking Finnish style. Lots of meats, potatoes, pickles and herring many ways. A little bit heavy but good. Very reasonable especially for Helsinki.

“My favorite "ravintola" in Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I often travel to Finland and this is probably the most typical restaurant where I have been so far. There is a good choice of food in a buffet and the first time the owner explained every dish to me. And when he found out I was Italian, he even put a flag on our table and took some good wine, very appreciated! Prices are very competitive compared to the Helsinki average ones, so this is a great deal if you're on a mid-low budget but still are looking for typical food. Recommended!

“Great Finnish Food at reasonable price!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I am glad we found this restaurant as its a place not to miss! The food was very nice traditional, i especially loved the salmon soup. You can eat as much as you like for 18 euros, something not easily found in Helsinki as all other restaurants we checked were very expensive.
The owners speak English and they are very friendly.
