We waited quite a long time for our food and when it came I was really disappointed. They literally put a quarter or a salad on my plate. It wasn't even cut nicely and they drizzled some sauce over it. It's not a quiet place either and the tables stand really close to each other.

Great place, with modern and newly renovated interior. What makes them stand out is that their menus are very original and with a mix of oriental/european cuisines that will definetly suit every taste. They also have one of the best burgers in town (If not the best). The wine selection is excellent, try to go with the waiters recommendation, or... More

Great for drinks (try their Bombay tonic), with cozy but stylish atmosphere, but has also a great kitchen. Tried the small snacks which were all excellent.

Came in to an empty restaurant. Took 45 mins to get apetizers, which were great though. Main course after 1:10h, which was good too. Overall the food was great but the service seems to be slow.

We spent a wonderful evening here! The food was awesome even for a vegetarian (usually this is not the case in Finnish restaurants). The waiter did everything by the book, A+ for her! She even recommended a wine that became my new favorite :) We'll be back for sure!

Basic restaurant with basic choices of burgers, beefs etc. I ate pike perch which was ok - nothing special but well prepared and very reasonably priced. Over all a good choice if you want to avoid the awful chain restaurants.

I've had several lunches here and quality has been steady good al the time. Now here is new interior and menu so try a'la carte too. One good point is that other half of the place is bar and has often stand up nights. Book tickets beforehand

I was at Intro last Saturday, it was a huge disappointment. I ordered steak which costed 26€, it was sirloin, it was OK, but sirloin steak in Finland that cost that much is a humbug. My steak was wrong at the fist and second time. After a second time I decided I am not going to wait that the chef... More
