Very poor quality, I did not really expect too much from HRC, but Helsinki HRC was below expectations. The prices were high but on the other hand all restaurants are expensive in Helsinki. The location of the restaurant is good (Alexanderinkatu, very central)

We are HRC regulars and we visited Helsinki's new HRC... The highest compliment one can give it is, it is true to its HRC name and experience.
The staff are friendly and warm and menu has all the regular items... the burger, sandwiches and the fish & chips are like all HRCs... strangely the waiter had no clue about the HRC rewards cards....he recovered well with a quick check with the manager. So make sure you give your VIP card details when you reserve or walk in. Well worth a visit.

Waited a while before going there as I heard there were some teething problems when it opened.

Went on a Friday night, had to wait about 15 mins for a table, in which time we had a drink in the bar. Drinks (beers) were the same price as any other bar/restaurant in the city centre. Place was really busy, but seemed as if there were more workers than customers.

I had the "legendary" burger, which by Helsinki (and Finnish standards) was great. Really big, well cooked and a smokey/bbq taste. It was the best burger I've had in Finland. The whole portion cost 19€, which is expensive, but compared to the pathetic burgers other restaurants in the city churn out, it was well worth it. Service was good and ok, depending on which of the 4 or 5 waiters was at our table.

Worth a visit.
