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.

A must stop in Helsinki for first time Finnland visitors. Authentic and tasty, friendly and cosy. From great salmon / pitatoe soup to baked salmon and hering to a nice cold starter buffet pkus free home made beer. We enjoyed this a lot.

Tripadvisor should allow a bonus rating because this restaurant had everything. Giving 5 out of 5 isn't enough. The staff here are a credit to their employer. We had a table reserved on Wednesday and we were glad we booked one because the amount of...people that tried to get in was a great sign of the great name this restaurant has. The staff are so friendly and patient and they go out of their way with everybody to explain what works well when mixing and matching the food. Our host actually lived in Ireland before so it was nice to have a genuine friendly chat about home and abroad. The food was absolutely delicious. You can see the chef takes great pride in their cooking and we observed the staff making sure that their food was plentiful and fresh and this again was a sign about how much they care. Some of our favourites were the Sauteed Reindeer, Vorschmack and the Meatballs. Definitely book a table in advance and considering the cost of some restaurants in Helsinki, Konstan Molja is great value. They do lunches too with a reduced supply but why do lunch when you can experience the main event in the evening. From the food to the interior and the atmosphere, this fantastic Finnish restaurant has to be experienced. Be decent and tip the great staff here regardless of what you think of the price. They deserve it.More

Absolutely recommended if you want to try original Finnish cuisine. While not overly large, the buffet offers a good variety of different dishes and foods, both cold and hot. Staff was also really nice and friendly. Definitely on our list again for the next visit.

Had a superb evening meal with colleagues whilst attending a conference. The restaurant serves traditional Finnish dishes. I found the food delicious and the service was excellent. I would love to take my family there one day. A short walk from Länsilinkki tram stop.

Our first night in Helsinki, and we were very hungry from our long flight and wanted to try "real" Finnish food. Konstan Molja fit the bill on every count with their all you can eat Finnish Buffet. So many delicious appetizers, soup, main entrees, and...their house made ale (aromatic, smooth and delicious accompaniment to the food). They also point out vegetarian and gluten free options. The hostess was patient and helpful explaining the many dishes and how to pair toppings with food items (such as lingonberry with the stewed reindeer) and Santir was friendly as he made his rounds to clear dishes and help you pay your check. It is a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I enjoyed the appetizers and herring more than I thought I would because of delicate flavors and seasonings; it was so much better than comparative items in the States. And a tip, a "paired down" but still plentiful buffet menu is available at lunch for less than half the cost. This is the place to go to get a wonderful overview of Finnish food and would be perfect to rest/relax after a day of walking around Helsinki and working up your appetite.More

I chose to visit as I was looking for somewhere in Helsinki to have traditional Finnish food where the price wasn't too high, what attracted me to this restaurant was the all you can eat buffet as I felt I would be able to get...good value for the price. I went on the weekend (Saturday) and was asked if I had a reservation, which I did not, however the friendly young man who greeted me seated me at a table. The place is not large at all which i had not expected. The buffet is located on a few tables right by the kitchen area. There were hot options on one table with vegetables and boiled/ mashed potatoes alongside and then cold options on another with sauces and baskets with bread on a shelf above. To the other side were a couple of soup tureens. The food was labelled on the outside of the containers so you knew what you were picking. Once seated the server explained I could help myself. I think there is a drinks menu and a dessert menu but I opted for tap water and only the buffet so did not see these. I saw several people drinking beer so this seemed a popular choice. I tried the smoked reindeer soup with a couple of slices of rye bread and a Karelian pastry. The soup was flavorsome and had small pieces of smoked meat in it which I really enjoyed. I then had the barley with saute reindeer as well as bit of the cooked salmon. I was also excited to try the fish roe they had with the cold fish and salad choices. Everything was cooked well and had nice flavours, I saw that the food levels were checked regularly and things were topped up from the kitchen when running low. As mentioned the restaurant is small, so there was sometimes a queue of people waiting to select their food, but everyone worked out a way in which to keep the line moving. The only thing I didn't see was hand sanitizer near the food to clean your hands before using the utensils, which I personally would have liked, but may have just overlooked. If you have a big appetite and want to make the most of trying different Finnish options then this is a good place to come, take a look at their website before hand which lists the food available so you know what to expect.More

Firstly I have to disagree with the previous reviewer as you must have known what to expect when dining at this great local restaurant. The 8 of us who dined on Friday night were blown away of how authentic the homely food was irrespective of...the price! Everything was hot and the queues at time whilst sometimes long, we’re never long time wise. Drinks service was swift and our waiter fantastic and friendly between rounds. We would all recommend coming here if visiting the city, and make sure you reserve a table beforehand. Just a 15min walk in the wintery conditions from the main shopping area.More

We went for the buffet. Too expensive for my taste. This restaurant was small so there was a long line for the buffet table - from the front door and from the tables. I didn’t like it - had to watch out for people passing...by all the time. The buffet table could have been located somewhere else, because the people in line had to avoid the staff and other customers by constantly moving to the side. The main course and dessert ran out after a while and we had to wait for more of them to be brought. No more water was brought to the tables, so more had to be taken from the free table next to ours. Food wasn’t anything special. Really. Had better anywhere else and much lower price. The interior of the restaurant and the music were good.More

Nice place with a typical old finnish style. All you can eat option only at 28 euro drinks excluded. It is quite cheap compared to helsinki average prices. There are several fresh fish assortments and sides plus few selections of main dishes, meat and fish...and vegetarian. It is all good, maybe not the best you can eat but very good considering that is all you can eat. Drinks prices are reasonable as well. You must try!More
