Several years from our previous visit, but this time, a few days ago, we had the feeling that there had not been any major changes. They still serve a rather large selection of very typical Greek dishes. We could not remember if the interior was still the same. However, the plates were nice-looking. The dishes are tasty - so if... More

We visited Zorbas with extended family including persons who spend about three months per year in Greece. The interior feels genuine. We were kindly met and the service was nice. We shared two two-person mixed starter plates for five which was just about right, not too much. A nice variety of greek starters. The main courses (Greek salad, souvlaki, moussaka... More

From the moment I walked in I was impressed with the service and incredibly warm welcome. The waiter was very polite and helpful, providing a menu in English but still providing an explanation of the dishes. The mixed grill was excellent - all the meats (ox, lamb, chicken, pork were perfectly cooked as were the vegetables and potatoes. A very... More

Food is good, but the major is an extremely friendly and professional waiter serving you there. This is the best service I have seen last months.

Expensive for the size of portions. Taste was ok, but no reason to come back. 3 prawns in main dish is not much. Service was between good and bad. Clean toilets anyway.

As to restaurant, the hoster is so hospitable. all of the things are so good such as caciki, taramosalad,kalamaraki and so forth. The prices are so affordable in the district of Helsinki. I strongly... More

Excellent authentic Greek food. Best food I've eaten in a long time. The location is good if you're checking out the Kallio area.

I have visited here a few times. The atmosphere, food, funny waiters and prices all together make this a good choose. Here you can feel like being in taverna in Greece. I recommend to pick different kind of starters as a main dish or vegetarian plate or fish with salad.
