“Bistro in the Töölö”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

Our society annual meeting held at Kuu Kuu's cabinet. The cabinet is ok for party of 11 or less. The cabinet is separated from the main restaurant with curtain. We had the meeting followed by three course dinner from the menu with wines. The ambient jazz type of music was on the background, not too noicy. Ideal location.

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Ravintola Kuu Kuu is slightly off center in the Töölö area in Helsinki. The place is rather small and divided into a bar and restaurant side. The tables in the restaurant are quite close to each other so don't share too many secrets with your companion.
We were greeted by a courteous waiter, but the waitress was verging on the rude side. Luckily her shift was ending.
But the food - oh, it was great! So carefully prepared and lovely, contrasting textures. A huge plus is that the servings are generous so the quality-price ratio is excellent. A small minus for desserts, which cost 10 euros each (too much).

“good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Kuu Kuu is straightforward, cosy restaurant and so is the menu, Perhaps lightning is a little bit too hard. Food is good, not too fancy and service was fast enough and polite. So not a great experience but certainly a place to go second time.

“Bring back the pelmeni!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This was a pretty decent restaurant with one great dish, the pelmeni. But now it is off the menu!! Also there was an excellent seafood sausage starter which is also off the menu.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

I decided to go here with my girlfriend on a whim. There was a lot of free space and yet the waitress took a long time to take our drink order and even longer to take our food orders.We Both ordered a starter and a main course. The starters were great but very small. The two mains were liver and and meatballs. The meatballs were ok but nothing special, while the liver was overcooked. The staff did not seem to care and were not friendly. There were a few flies flying about and the staff did not seem to care. I would not recommend this place, however it has a lot of good reviews so it may just have been bad luck.
