We decided to have lunch in Tampere at 13.30 on our way through. Based on reviewing Tripadvisor reviews for 5 minutes we opted for Borneo and couldn't have made a better choice.

At arrival we were greeted with smiles and seated at the only empty place. There was a fast paced atmosphere in this small restaurant with quick turnaround of new customers replacing leaving ones. There were constantly a few new ones at the door hoping to be squeezed in. The buffet trays had many excellent choices and the staff kept filling it up with amazing pace and grace. 10eur with coffee/water included. This is definitely a place to visit at least for lunch if you like Asian (Malaysian) food !! Very good service in the midst of all the buzz!!

Probably the best restaurant in Tampere and it's Malaysian... food is top notch, service polite and with a smile. Prices are very reasonable for Finland. Will go again :-)

We ended up in Borneo by looking the stellar reviews and the place didn't disappoint. The lunch buffet was really good! The food was mostly quite spicy (hot), for example the satay chicken had quite much kick in it. However, that was perfect for the hot summer day. The rice (white and curcuma-colored was nicely cooked and shrimp chips ok. Place is indeed small but at 13:00 there was already some space available. Toilet was very clean.

In my opinion one of the best restaurants in Tampere. I like about the atmosphere there, it is a small, more private place. The meals are fresh and have a large variety of tastes. The service is very friendly.
