We've been coming to Helga's for a couple of years..especially to the 'supermarket' sie and is soooo dissapointed! No more german beer etc. Cashier also not very friendly. Bought big bottle of blue cheese sauce to take home...opened it tonight and is completely off! Will not visit again and poor products

We popped in for a light lunch and ended up leaving stuffed. The unlikely venue is not too well promoted and we visited upon advice of some friends. Due to the unlikely location Helgas compensate with price and over generous portions. Various in store specials cater for most basic tastes (consider that this is a Dross grill rest) and will...

We were surprised to find only two tables occupied during a Sunday lunch. The waiter was extremely friendly and provided excellent service. The music was way too loud and the menu contained quite a few typo's. Unfortunately the food was bland and boring although the portions were huge and good value for money.

Helga's is a good idea for customers that like to eat a lot where quality is less important than quantity. Stuffy and overcrowded with a lot of things and the bottles that basically forms the ceiling of the restaurant. How on earth do they managed to clean the dust from these bottles or is this really part stuffy decor. You... More

My wife & I decided to pop in while passing by during retail therapy. Actually, I spontaneously decided almost too late to pull in to Helgas for salami. We decided to stay for brekkie, saving us a stop elsewhere. Sheri our waitron was all spirit and enthusiasm and I am glad we did stop. Her service was fantastic! Johan the... More

On arrival at 1215 for lunch, only 2 cars in car park. Ordered steak and a pizza. After 45 minutes still no food. Waitress kept apologizing. Appears pizza lady did not put enough wood on! We were actually watching her doing nothing. I went to leave after 45 minutes, offered to pay for drinks. Manager/owner said that they are a... More

Value for money and man-size portion makes this one of the best venue for a family meal. On the way out grab some of the items on sale or you'll regret later on not doing so.

This place is hidden in a food store and I am not even sure if we should call it a restaurant. Fast food corner in a dark shop may be the better name. The food is poor, the service as well and I cannot recommend this place except in cases of emergency shortly before you starve.
