It feels very authentic. We had a very cozy private dinning room. We started with some smoked fish and that was a bit challenging for me. Main course was some really good tender beef, but overall I am not fan of the way the food...More

The place has a very "Russian" interior design. The food is very good, so is the beer, but the place is very very expensive.

Restaurant Saslik about 15 minutes walk from Helsinki city center. Superb meat dishes, huge skewers and good selection of wine. Try the baked Alaska as dessert. Highly recommend!

We had bear pelmens, lamb etc. and everything didn't only taste amazing but was also delivered to the table with good russian hospitality. The atmospehre is authentic with the singers and vodka pourings and even the pricing is very high, it's worth it.
