“Good place to have quick lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Good place to have quick lunch. Portions are large enough, to say the least. Only downside is the smell of grease that will stuck to you clothes.

“You won't leave disappointed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Forget about over-priced chain restaurants and head to Komppeli instead. Though the list has minimal options, there's usually something for everyone (also salads, fear not) and a grill cutlet (grillileike) with fries is never a bad choice. The coleslaw is fresh and tasty with only a few ingredients to it, but the tomato soup gets boring after a few visits. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all, but after a few lunches it just starts tasting like tomato mash straight from a can. A slice of bread for a change, perhaps? The later you arrive, the more probably most of the lunch options have already run out - especially if it's meatball day.
Don't hesitate to sit down with total strangers, they won't bite you. Everybody's just after a tasty lunch and at times you might get into a conversation with someone (how un-Finnish of us). Most probably you can just enjoy your food without anyone bothering and get a good look at different kinds of people coming and going, either in uniforms or in office jeans.

“Heavy workers lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

If you're looking for a cozy or romantic place on a tourist trip to Turku, you're in the wrong joint....However, if you just want to fill your stomach and watch Finnish workers and state employees from the police station next door, this could be an option. It sure is "off the beaten track". The place only serves lunch and I think they close already around 5 pm. It's a tiny place and you won't have any privacy and get prepared to share a table with others. When you come into the place you go directly to the counter and order one of the options on displayed on the bord. You pay and get your cuttlery and go for a table. They then bring you first a soup that is included and a simple sallad. The portions, mainly different steaks, are huge, so you won't leave hungry for sure. The prices are reasonable, more or less normal lunch delas.
