“Lovely little restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Mami is a small restaurent located on Vähätori square, right next to the river. The food is veryy fresh and local, and they change the menu often according to the season. Some of the waiters also are co-owners of the place (and seem to genuinely love their job), so they have very good reason to keep you happy! The prices are good too, considering the usual finnish restaurants. Especially the lunch is very good. On summer weekends this is a must (since not many places serve lunch).

“Good food with standard service”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Fennel soup was great. Barley spiced with basil, beetroots and Wilhelmiina cheese - was good. Lamb shank 12h with cummin sauce was otherwise good but it was too salty even for my taste, I bet many would have send ot back to kitchen but luckily I like salt quite much. I can do as good my self. Panna cotta with yogurt, served with mango and pineapple salad - was good but my mother in law makes as good as these professionals.
Service was actually quite standard Finnish style. That was perhaps the biggest disappointment.
Still, one of the bests in town propably...
The chairs are awful for your back!

“Simply the best”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Excellent, rich sallads. Everything is fresh and made espcially for you after your order. So there's no buffet table with wilted or soggy lettuce. I lunch frequently at Mami and recommend it warmly.
