This buffet lunch restaurant is centrally located. It is on the upstairs thus needs someeffort to find it but worth of looking! Very friendly and everything is tasty. You pay by the weight but it is inexpensive. They also have raw cakes and some wines and smoothies. Downstairs a small outdoors terrace to have a coffee. Very charming!

I took a Summer edition portion of bbq ox with veggies and tomato-ginger sauce. And it was delicious! 👌 ps. White wine 16cl was only 5,5€! (Read: cheap in Finland). Also big thanks to very kind staff!

Have eaten wok here many times. Also gluten free option available by choosing rice or another cup of vegetables. If you want it can also be pretty hot by choosing the right sauce and extra chili sauce... Maybe a bit more sauce, liquid and meat for the wok and I would give it 5 stars. Also a salad table available... More

In the restaurant upstairs you can choose from a nice selection of fresh ingredients and sauces for your wok, which will then be prepared while you wait. We all enjoyed our dishes, but I have to say that I requested my wok 'extra hot' and it seems that their interpretation of extra hot is very mild. My son had a... More

You can choose veggies for your dish and then make a decision about sauce and pick your favourite meat/cheese/etc. for your dish. The staff will fry it all up and bring the delicious combo to your table! Dig in! :)

Nothing to add to previous reviews - this is an amazing place quite well hidden in the heart of Joensuu. Would love to go there today too but it's Sunday... Have to wait until tomorrow. 😂

You can have salty or sweet in this restaurant. Sweet down and salty upstairs. Food is very good and fresh. Pricing is average and lines are not too long. After you can enjoy a movie what is in same building.

Simple looking restaurant with an unusual but very nice way to get you food. Staff is very friendly and helpful! Dishes are fresh, tasty and worth to try. Space in the restaurant is limited so reservation is recommended! Upstairs you will find the restaurant where you can get wok and salads, downstairs you can enjoy delicious desserts. Unique restaurant for... More
