Friendly, clean, quick and tasty food with a good choice of beers. Well worth visiting . . . and returning to.

Tried the blini and steamed meat dumplings. Superb! Wish they offered a combo or set menu so I could have enjoyed some soup without breaking the bank. Still, worth the trip to enjoy these classic dishes served in Helsinki with pride.

This place. The food is a great price and the owner makes some great food and has great customer service. The menu is super simple, various flavors/types of 3 or 4 base dishes so you get plenty of options to choose from but without clutter...More

Found this place through tripadvisor and decided we had to stop in for a meal while in Helsinki. Were not disappointed in the slightest. We had potatoes-mushrooms dumplings, blini and mash potatoes, and blini with ice cream, which were all excellent. Highly recommend!

The pelmenni with meat tasted just right, pelmenni with potato-mushroom filling should use more tasty forest mushrooms.

A small but very nice restaurant - the Bilini are great and very filling. I would say really good value for your money. The wine prices were very good for Helsinki. I would recommend this restaurant and visit again
