I love russian food! This place has tasty lunch, with soup, salad, main dish and dessert with coffee or tea. Quite small place, a hidden jem. Yum!

Authentic russian basic food, no fuss! very friendly and true to the feeling. Try the pelmeni they are the classic of the place as the name shows. But also other dishes are good, like filled paprikas.

We took a long walk to Kallio from the city centre and this restaurant was part of the itinerary. My partner had the stroganoff, which was not what we expected, but we trust that it was authentic and that our prior understanding of the dish (as North Americans) was not. In any case, it was good. I had the pelmenit,... More

Being a Ukrainian I definitely know how should an authentic classy borscht taste like or how rich may be a homemade meat or fish rissole. The Pelmenit restaurant does not compromise in the food taste - it is as good as one can get for the price offered. Everything we've tasted here during our short stay in Helsinki was a... More

If you like Slavic food here you can get it. Dishes are a bit small but you can ask for more if you like. It costed 9-12 euros per dish.

Pelmenit is located in a part of Helsinki that most tourists are unlikely to find. The district is certainly a bit rougher than central Helsinki. Nonetheless, it is worth the trip. You'll get friendly service from the owner, a selection of beer to drink, and very tasty food with portions that will leave you feeling stuffed.

Every now and then you find a place which feels just right from the first second you step inside. Pelmenit was that place to me. Friendly first impression, cozy interior and then you realise that your eyes are watching other people's portions. And what about the food itself. We both took Pelmeni portion. The portion was absolutely tasty and at... More

Pelmeni is great place if you are very hungry - the portions are indeed big. The food is anything but sophisticated and the restaurant is not exactly cozy. The borscht soup is not my favourite but the pelmenis are excellent. There's no separate kids menu.
