I really enjoyed my lunch here. The food was very good and the service as well. It was a good tip from someone to go for hot lunches in Finland and just have a snack in the evening. Hot lunches like this one are really good value and give you more to go on than just a sandwich.

Great value lunches with coffee and salad included. Water provided free - you don't have to ask (should be standard everywhere). Good, attentive, friendly service. Choice small but excellent quality and healthy. Good veggie choice for main too. Nice atmosphere and clean with a good view, tastefully furnished. We returned just for the food, even though we weren't visiting the... More

This restaurant/cafe is located in the contemporary art museum Kiasma. The cafe decor is fun and they have a nice, sunny terrace you can sit and sip coffee or something stronger. They also serve lunch, which is usually good. The staff is friendly and the drinks as well as sweet pastries good. A nice place to relax after a day... More

Very nice option for a lunch or coffee break. Service of this cafe is just super! This cafe is in the art centre, in the very center of Helsinki. A great place to meet, too. The museum shop next door is also tempting...

The location is great and from the cafe you have a nice view to the busy street of Mannerheiminkatu. However the smoothie I ordered was thin as milk and with no flawour. The lunch however was good!

Lovely outside terrace by a large pool in a very central location by the Museum of Modern Art. A perfect place for a sunny al fresco luncheon. Food average to good, service very friendly. Note to the kitchen: parsley is not an acceptable substitute for coriander in Thai food.

It tasted like it too, poor lunch that cost me over 10€. It was a big portion but I would have setteled with less but better quality. The food was clearly... More

We had lunch at Café Kiasma last weekend and chose the salad buffet. The buffet looked very tasty, with a great variety of both vegetarian and meet alternatives. There were signs at the different plates that explained what the dishes contained, however only in finnish and not so detailed information. For instance, one sign read "liha"; "meat" in Finnish. Once... More

The Kiamsa Cafe was a lovely place to relax after a tour of the art displays in the Kiamsa! The selection of foods was good and there was both inside and outside seating.
