This is not one of those fancy high-end Russian joints you find downtown. Rather they serve honest home cooking, Ukrainian cuisine I understand. Also the decor and prices are no-nonsense.

Visited Kallio and ate at Pelmenit slightly before noon time. They offered a buffet style lunch. We had children and they offered half price for them. Food selection is good, and very traditional home taste. It was also delicious. There were cabbage, fried fish in some wrap, donuts filled with jam, mash potato, minced meat with vegetable, small fish soup... More

Visited here after reading all the positive reviews and our expectations were certainly met! The family who run the place are lovely and it is a limited menu but so tasty and very traditionally Ukrainian! I would definitely recommend a visit and it is great value for money and certainly one of the cheaper places you will find in Helsinki... More

Käytiin maistamassa pelmeneitä, lättyjä ja pirozkeja. Hyviä makuja, isot annokset. Mukavan retro tunnelma, jukeboksi ja kaikkea. If you want pelmenis or some good russian food, Pelmenit is the right place!

I love russian food! This place has tasty lunch, with soup, salad, main dish and dessert with coffee or tea. Quite small place, a hidden jem. Yum!

Authentic russian basic food, no fuss! very friendly and true to the feeling. Try the pelmeni they are the classic of the place as the name shows. But also other dishes are good, like filled paprikas.

We took a long walk to Kallio from the city centre and this restaurant was part of the itinerary. My partner had the stroganoff, which was not what we expected, but we trust that it was authentic and that our prior understanding of the dish (as North Americans) was not. In any case, it was good. I had the pelmenit,... More

Being a Ukrainian I definitely know how should an authentic classy borscht taste like or how rich may be a homemade meat or fish rissole. The Pelmenit restaurant does not compromise in the food taste - it is as good as one can get for the price offered. Everything we've tasted here during our short stay in Helsinki was a... More
