I've been there only once but the place definitely deserves a good recommendation. There are usually 3 different kind of dishes to choose from as a buffet style; soup, non-vegetarian and a vegetarian option. The price for the buffet is pretty standard, but definitely better than most buffet's you can find in Helsinki. The meals feel that they are home... More

The place looks a bit old fashioned and simple but they cook very tasty lunch in "home made" style. You can pick your lunch from a "swedish table" i.e. you can eat whatever you find appetizing from the table (usually two main courses and the salads). Bread and coffee included.

Raiku is really good lunch restaurant in Hakaniemi. I have always visited on fridays, so have had meatballs each time (their regular food on Friday). Buffet price also includes salad buffet, soup and bread selection. On latest visit they had really nice onion soup. Raiku is worth visiting - there isn't much to see on interior but food is good.

If you don't like the food here, there is something wrong with you. Always fresh salads and tasty soups, and the mains makes you wanna move in.

The best homemade Finnish style lunch in town!! They use only good ingredients, which is quite rare in this price range. Service is sometimes a bit cold, and interior is a slightly rustic, but these things are part of the x-factor of this restaurant. Don´t be too serious about it.

Basic but tasty food from simple, good ingredients. Soups and salads usually the best. Nothing fancy, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Raikussa saa kelpo ruokaa hyvistä raaka-aineista, ystävällinen palvelu ja simppeli mutta rento meininki.

This place is just awesome. They serve lunch from 11 am to 4 pm. Everything is self-made and delicious. 10 € gets you the full menu (most of which contains meat however, so not that good for vegetarians perhaps).

Last time I went here this summer, service was really rude when trying to figure out what is eatable considering some allergies/intolerances. Previous times food has been ok but nothing special, you can find a better lunch from Kallio area.
