the price is not so expensive for a buffet dinner (about 11 eur). i like wide range of the salad selection and grilled chicken. the pizza itself tasted so-so.

Golden Rax pizzabuffet is a chain restaurant, which is why i was really surprised when I visited the Rax in Kuopio. The tables were messy, the pizza tasted poor and the salads didn't look tempting. But hey, at least it's affordable and quick!

Rax chain has buffets all over Finland. Basic idea is the same in every place. Salad and pizza in a buffet. If you like it, this is your place.

Usual Rax pizzabuffet. Very fatty food, sometimes only one pizza brand in the buffet. On the other hand: affordable, fast and excellent location with a view to Kuopio market place.

I ate at Rax several times during my stay in Finland. I am Italian so I was very skeptical and I seriously thought the pizza would have been horrible. I was wrong! The pizza is very good and tasty, the fried chicken and the meatballs are delicious and also the salad options are good and numerous. Sometimes they have different... More

Buffet table with pizzas, salads + seasonal extra portions (hamburgers etc.). Cheap price includes non-alcohol drinks, warm food, coffee and with 1€ extra charge soft ice-cream. No service to the table. Food is ok, not anything special. Price is cheap and students can also get student discount with Finnish student card. Place is quite non-classy but usually clean. The view... More

This is a buffet - you eat as much as you can for just under 10 euros. The service is simple and fast: you pay at the entrance and proceed. As food and everything in Finland the Rax food is safe, of good quality and healthy (to the extent a pizza could be). The choice is vast and includes apart... More

A pizza buffet where you can eat as much as you want for 9 euros. The food is ok. In addition to pizza, there is a lot of salad and some other foods as well.
