I have visited Swagatam quite many times, and it never really fails. Good level of food and everything is tasty - maybe somewhat adjusted to finnish taste, decent-sized portions, good take-away-service. Service is good as well, and prices are pretty decent, during lunch-time even cheap. Really worth a try!

Swagatam is a family favourite of ours. First of all it seems to be always open, also on bank holidays when most restaurants close their doors. We have always been very satisfied with both the food and service. The menu has a lot to choose from. I can never remember my favourites, so I always end up finding new favourites!

There's also a lovely bakery and an alcohol store in the market area. The food isn't as spicy as some might like. Maybe this is the norm in Finland... More

First, let's have the positive things to say: the food was quite ok. But: - we had a table reservation but the table was not ready (forks and knives had to be asked separately when the food arrived, drinking glasses we took ourselves from the desk) - food took 45 minutes to come, after which we were in a hurry...
