This place. The food is a great price and the owner makes some great food and has great customer service. The menu is super simple, various flavors/types of 3 or 4 base dishes so you get plenty of options to choose from but without clutter or confusion. We ordered 1 blini, 1 small order of dumplings and a bowl of... More

Found this place through tripadvisor and decided we had to stop in for a meal while in Helsinki. Were not disappointed in the slightest. We had potatoes-mushrooms dumplings, blini and mash potatoes, and blini with ice cream, which were all excellent. Highly recommend!

The pelmenni with meat tasted just right, pelmenni with potato-mushroom filling should use more tasty forest mushrooms.

A small but very nice restaurant - the Bilini are great and very filling. I would say really good value for your money. The wine prices were very good for Helsinki. I would recommend this restaurant and visit again

Simple good russian food as I know from my friends mother. Cooked with no artificial ingedients as the owner told us. No fancy place, just for an easy dinner and with good prices!

Not so fancy place, but plinit were really tasty and quite cheap as well. If you want to get good Russian food, then it is a place for you! Location is a bit far away from centrum.

Thank Laura G
