If you want to have Russian-style food in Helsinki, this is definitely the place, a classic! A good choice would be e.g. "Iivanan miekka" ("Ivan's sword"), which has lots of delicious different items in it, and you surely won't be left hungry. Personally I've ordered it about 10 times over the years, and still not got tired of having it.... More

Restaurant Saslik about 15 minutes walk from Helsinki city center. Superb meat dishes, huge skewers and good selection of wine. Try the baked Alaska as dessert. Highly recommend!

We had bear pelmens, lamb etc. and everything didn't only taste amazing but was also delivered to the table with good russian hospitality. The atmospehre is authentic with the singers and vodka pourings and even the pricing is very high, it's worth it.

Traditional Russian restaurant where you eat and drink a lot of vodka. You can not get any closer to Russia without traveling there. Saslik is situated just few steps from the Russian embassy so if you need a visa is just minutes away.

We had a business meeting in Saslik and everything was great. The food is amazing and you won't be hungry after dinner for sure, the portions are huge. Service was really kind and everything worked smoothly.

Blini weeks were tempting us for a family gathering at Saslik. Food was very tasty and heavy. Not an everyday meal, but impressive and savoury for a special occasion.

Having never eaten here before, we were really looking forward on the experience. The food was good, but I have to admit that we were expecting it to be a bit better. I do believe there is better Russia restaurants in Helsinki. However, I have to say that the service was outstanding! I might rate the food with only 3... More

This restaurant accomodated our party of ten with a private room. We had a great time, and the food was very good (some of us had the bear, which tasted a little of blueberries). The staff was very friendly, and we stayed for quite a few hours, having both starters, main course and desert as well as plenty of vodka.... More
