Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had the buffet woth sushi and it was 14,50 euros! The vietnamese dishes were good, sushi more like so so. Great for a quick eat but wouldn't come here to enjoy a proper dinner. Located conveniently right under the market place.

Buffet lunch was really good. I liked the summer rolls which was so fresh and the special sauce was amazing. I already bought a jar of summer rolls sauce just for 5€. Cheap, delicious, and best service.

have to recommend :) All meat food was exceptionally well made. It's quite same as asian food but still really different. Have to visit Thailand if everything is as good as in this restaurant. Variety is so good that the plate got really full!

I am always amazed by broad selection of all-you-can-eat lunch in Finland with affordable price (10-15 euro), considering the high price of food ingredients compared to other European countries. The Alley is kne of them. I like their fried pho and fried foods, as I...am too lazy to fry things myself. They also give additional discount for students.More

Many different tofu dishes for good prices and you will leave here with a full stomach. I've basically tried everything on the menu and personal favourites are the summer and spring rolls with great sauces. The dishes are big and well seasoned according to Vietnamese...customs.More

Very fresh buffet table, that looks small but has loads of variety. The food could have more spices! The mangolassi is very delicious!

Went for lunch to this small Vietnames restaurant in Apaja, under the Market place of Kuopio. I was excpecting the normal ethnical restaurant buffet lunch, but got really surprised about the quality and variety of the food! I do not eat meat or poultry, but...I still got plenty of dishes to choose, and everything was hand made and so delicious! There are different kind of cold salads, I totally fell in love with authentic Korean kimchi! In the warm buffet, were so delicious veggies, tofus, noodels, spring rolls etc. And many dishes with meat also, though I did not try them, but others said they were delicious, too. Really good mango smoothie, Jasmine tea and coffee for dessert. All for 10 euros in the lunch time. Actually I ate too much, because everything was so delicious! I had to return next day and surely this place will be one of my favourite lunch restaurants in Kuopio! The service was really nice and attendative.More
