This is a small place, but with bright and zesty decoration. Seems like a one-man show -- the owner (obviously Russian) makes the food, serves it, buses tables. But the food was super delicious, not pricey at all. Giant crepes, basically, filled with delicious things....More

The slught arrogance mught be caused byblanguage barrier or shyness. Interior design is from the seventies. Pelmens and crepes are delicious. And hand made. Suits all kinds of informal guests.

Really good food and very nice and attentive service, although a bit slow, as there was only one person to do everything. Recommendable never the less.

Tried the blini and steamed meat dumplings. Superb! Wish they offered a combo or set menu so I could have enjoyed some soup without breaking the bank. Still, worth the trip to enjoy these classic dishes served in Helsinki with pride.

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...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!
