Hoku never let's you down! Perfect place for lunch and dinner is always a great option too. Flavours in the dishes are super tasty and portions are exactly right. Staff and service also excellent. Best seats next to the window/terrace, great for a date night!

I dined twice in Hoku last week. First I had Teriyaki salmon which was great and plenty of it. The portion was large but it still disappeared quickly as it was tasting great. So did also the accompanying salad. Being such a great experience I...More

HOKU is a casual restaurant located in the Helsinki Kamppi district started by Ryan Shibuya. Ryan was born and raised in Hawaii and wanted to share some of the great foods from back home. Nothing fancy, just good food in a casual environment.
