At the time of Kebab pizzerias and Indian and Chinese and Thai restaurants it's quite a difficult to find something little different and unique in rather small town like Tampere. But Borneo manages to do that. It's more and different compared to the other Southern East Asian restaurants and really serves good Malaysian food. The prices are reasonable, especially if you take away when you will get about 20-30% discount to the normal prices. The place is very small family run place and you will get warm service but you should notice it closes 8pm (We-Su) and serves only lunch on Tuesday and is closed on Mondays. But very good choice if you want good asian food and are tired of typical thai/chinese/vietnamese fusion restaurants, which all taste same. Probably the best asian restaurant in town

The restaurant is really small and the staff friendly. We had to wait long time for the food, because there were only two people working. But the food was really good and the price ok. There is also a take away possibility.

A small restaurant with 10 or so tables, which closes at 8 pm so the owner can get her child from child care on time! But a great taste of Malaysia! The fusion of Chinese, Indian, indonesian and Malaysian cuisine that is so typical of this country is all found back, from the roti and curry sauce starter, to the pisang goreng dessert. Very reasonably priced and a million miles from any other restaurant in Tampere, Finland!

To tell the truth, I don't have favourable image about Malaysian cuisine. Just in my humble opinion based on my personal thoughts, this is because of its lack of variation in taste, sweet taste against my expectation, for example, satty, and other reasons. So, when it comes to Southeast Asian cuisine, I favour Thai or Vietnamese more than Malaysian.

Surprisingly, the food provided by Restaurant Borneo is much better than any other restaurants in Borneo, Malaysia.
The photos are Malaysian fried noodle, mie goreng and chicken curry that we enjoyed tonight. If I could hope more, I prefer chicken thigh rather than breast meat.

As of 28 May, 2013, Restaurant Borneo has won the No.1 rating in Tampere's 219 restaurants on Tripadvisor. It is no doubt that Restaurant Borneo is one of good restaurants in Tampere.

While the lunch buffet doesn't offer as much variety as I would like, the items on the buffet are all very good. It's definitely the best lunch buffet in town. The Beef Rendang is exquisite
