Very pleasant place! It is a small self-service lunch restaurant, open Mon-Fri from 11-16. After choosing from the menu, you give your order and pay, then take a seat where you will be served your meal. The dish of the day for about 10 EUR looked enormous, and since I was not that hungry, I chose a smaller one for... More

Even if I'm not vegetarian, I really enjoyed the food! Zucchini it's a small place, full with locals having lunch break. You can sit close to strangers and have conversation while enjoying the great and tasty food, not boring at all even if you're not a vegetarian like me.

Love this kind of concept, they have a "dish of the day", different one for each day of the week. The price is great too and the food very fresh, very tasty. Today I had an Onion Soup and a Chickpea Loaf with quinoa, veggie curry and salad :) Will come back for sure! The staff is very kind!

I come here regularly and this is one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in town. The restaurant is only open for lunch (until 4 p.m.) and does not offer an a la carte menu. It's basically like a canteen where one has to queue to get the food on offer. The menu changes daily and consists of a soup or... More

This is an excellent little restaurant, which does NOT serve a la carte. They make a soup, and a main, a salad, desert. Drinks. Everything is very good, and the menu changes regularly. Cannot get any better for 12 to 14 Euro. Loved it!!

I ate here last Friday, arriving right around noon when the rush was just about to start. A restaurant employee pointed out the English translation of the daily special on the chalkboard. I opted for it at €10: Jerusalem artichoke soup with parm cheese, with a variety of bread available - apricot, rye, whole grain - and a main of... More

We came across this vegetarian restaurant while wandering the streets of Helsinki. Not far from the Kauppatori Market Square and the lovely Esplanade Park. This is a cozy place with a couple of outside tables. You order at the counter - limited selection - and find a table. For 10 Euros pp we had salad, stuffed eggplant, seasoned rice and... More

Always guaranteed good vegetarian food, large portions, friendly service and nice atmosphere. The restaurant isn't big so you might want to avoid the rush hour, but then again, if you don't mind sitting across an unknown but friendly person, you'll always find a place to eat!

Located on a side street near the esplanade. Small homey, cozy. Lunch changes daily. We had spicy green curry with tofu, veggies. Aroma pulled us in. Lunch includes main dish, bread, vegetable side and water. Zucchini has been in this location 23 years, says it all.
