Will be staying at the Radisson Blu and wondering if there are any places nearby offering tasty meals and drinks at lower end of prices?
You will be right at the city center so there are plenty of options for all budgets and all tastes. Check out the nearby KAMPPI and FORUM shopping malls, plenty of options. Walk towards the rainstation, on the left on the 10th floor of Sokos is restaurant Loiste. On the right, almost opposite Stockmanns depatment store is Virgin Oil restaurant.
There are two Radisson Blue hotels: the Royal in Kamppi and the Plaza in Kaisaniemi. Which one are you staying at?
Radisson Blu has four hotels in Helsinki: Aleksanteri (at Albertinkatu) , Royal (Runeberginkatu near Kamppi), Plaza (Mikonkatu) and Seaside (near Ruoholahti). Which of these are you in? And how low do you want to go in "low end" ? In Helsinki, nothing is cheap. Lower end consists of Nepalese and kebab places, some pizzerias, and Hesburger fast food. if you are in Mikonkatu, walk to underground shopping centre at Helsinki University metro station, several reasonably prized options there.
"offering tasty meals and drinks at lower end of prices"
Omit drinks, alcohol in a restaurant is expensive. Tasty meal can be reasonably priced; check out Konstan möljä if you look for something Finnish.
Great info thank you. Yes at the Radisson Blu ( fancy having 4 Radissons!) so your suggestions much appreciated.
Plaza. Thank you.
