“the only vegetarian restaurant in town”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I love this place. It is basically a lunch eatery (yes indeed it is a pity that it only open around lunch time and on weekdays). The food is always surprisingly simple, but tasty and rich... and healthy too. There is only one choice per day - but it changes continuously - of main dish and soup. Lovely cakes too. The (minor) downside is the size of the place that make it easily very crowd. Often it is needed to share table...which adds up to the cozy atmosphere.

“Delicious food and friendly service at a great price”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We managed to squeeze in two visits to Zucchini during our two week trip in Finland and Estonia even though they are only open for lunch and we traveled outside of Helsinki for many days of our trip. The food was so delicious, we had wanted to eat it for every meal during our trip. They only offer the daily specials which include a combination of an entree, side and soup. You can get only one of these or get all three together with a side salad for a very good deal considering the quality of the food. Staff was super friendly, was able to speak to us in English, and very helpful at explaining what the different options were. We didn't even ask what the daily special was the second time we visited as everything was so tasty the first time we visited, we knew we couldn't go wrong with whatever the meal was for the day. Seating was cafeteria style, but we were able to find a place quickly even when the restaurant was crowded. I highly recommend this restaurant to vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

We didn't have room for dessert either time we visited, but these always were very tempting and featured local berries and other seasonal flavors

“Healthy and tasty lunch restaurant”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Visited at 2pm, the place was pretty crowded and we had to look for a table. No air conditioning, it seems, so the restaurant was hot even though it was only about 20 C outside. A good, varied, healthy lunch and a very reasonable price.

“Best vegetarian restaurant in Hki”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

I have always got excellent vegetarian dishes here. Tasty and balanced which is not always the case with vegetarian food. The owners are supersweet and the athmosphere is great. I will return!
