The name of the place has changed to Giwa. We visited at lunchtime. On the menu there were various bibimpap dishes and bulgogi. Pork bibimpap was tasty. The bulgogi meat was a bit overcooked. The place seemed quite popular. We got the last available table.

Really good Korean food with reasonable price. Menu is short and focuses on cold/ hot pot bibimbap (see picture) - I recommend the hot pot with red sauce! Sauce is quite spicy so add carefully :) I had hot pot kimchi bibimbap (without egg) for lunch 12.9e which included salad, miso soup, coffee/ tee and cookies. Big portions, normal eaters... More

Atmosphere, service of the restaurant was good. We were happy with everything except the food quality which is the most important determining factor, so after all not a good dining experience. Unfortunately I have to say that I would not come back again since with the similar price or even less, I can get authentic and much better bibimbap from... More

Nowadays known as Giwa serves quite a narrow list of Korean food, but it is soo good! We had the ribs and bibimbap in a hot stone pot and everything was super delicious. The service was friendly and we were really satisfied with our experience. I would definitely recommend to try it!

Makki-Makki is located on one of the parade streets in Helsinki in a beautiful jugend style house. The service is really welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is smallish with a limited Korean style menu. We had egg bibimbaps that tasted really good with the sauces provided. All in all, Makki-Makki has a good quality/price ratio.

Had couple of dinners here and will have many more. They are koreans and specialised in bibimbap. Try the one with kimchi on it and put some red sauce... delicious! One bowl and you end up super full.

I really like this Korean restaurant. I've only had bibimbap here but it's really nice - almost like in Korea. Friendly staff too!

High price, not enough quality than I expected as a Korean. Only Bibimbab you can have, not many choices of menu.

The food was good but the amount of beef they serve in the bim bim bap and the bulgogi is ridiculously small. Otherwise, it was great service and food was fresh.
