Especially the dinner buffet 18 euros (June 2013) has very good value for the money. The restaurant is not in core center, but there is about one kilometer walk from central station. Table reservation is not needed, but advisable to assure there are seats. Friendly service. The owner can tell stories about the restaurant and Finland. Especially the "Marski" room for about 10 people is an interesting room, almost like a museum.

Visited this restaurant on the basis of TA reviews. We were not disappointed. The buffet was excellent and good value at 18€. The staff were friendly and the decor cheerful, if a little folklorique. I had some dark draft beer, which was delicious. All good.

Thank plightfo

Most Helsinki restaurants close pretty early but we ate here around 10pm (still very light in late June so we ended up letting time get away from us). The buffet was all gluten free and had many outstanding choices. 18 euros--a bargain in this pricey city. we had reindeer w mashed  potatoes and lingonberry and also ground lamb & herring  w sour cream and shredded beets. Incredibly good. buffet was all gluten free. Choice of mashed boiled or scalloped potatoes. Salad w lots of bits to go on top. Also chicken thighs in BBQ sauce. Baked whitefish was amazing but perhaps overshadowed by the meat dishes. We didn't know how much the addition of the lingonberry flavor would complement the reindeer (also the sour cream and beets w the lamb& herring) until the cook told us. Also had to ask about gluten SO be sure to ask questions of the staff who are all fluent in English.

My wife and I had a wonderful buffet dinner in Finnish style there. The food is warm and tasty, with a wide range of dishes you can choose from. Finnish cuisines like reindeer and meatball are served and refilled promptly. The waiters are polite and willing to explain the ingredients of the dishes. Priced almost the cheapest in Helsinki, I believe Konstan Molja is the best choice for all budgeted (and also deluxe) travelers.

Do make a reservation if you don't want to wait long for a table!
