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.

Philippine / asian restaurant. Lively, small place. Wonderfull athmosphere. Good food. Small but OK wine selection, goes well with the food. Good value for the bucks. Don’t be turned off by the location in the Kamppi mall. Go again? Sure!

Quite an interesting food offering. Definitely recommend to try it once. We had salmon, that was quite usual, while chicken in coconut sauce was something new.

I ate lunch here and was positively surprised we could fit in. The cuisine is not much different from any other asian food, but still there was some small differences and this will be a great alternative to routine of Thai or Singaporean food.

Very disapointing! Will not visit again. There are many good restaurants in Helsinki and this will not even reach an average status.

Complete disappointment. The menu does not correspond to reality. Even coffee they have from thermos. Desserts are served frozen. Everything is warming up. Don't follow the rules. The cook and the waiter without masks and gloves. The cook prepares and washes the dishes. I do...not recommend this restaurant.More

Very nice, exotic food, friendly staff. I go there quite often, like several times a month. The waiting time was always very low to get a table. The opening hours could be extended. Also in the beginning the beef meat was out of this world,...then I understood they changed their provider or something.More

I went there today to grab with me a take away lunch. For some technical reason my order hadn't been received, but the wonderful staff made me my meal in literally 1 minute! And this was the tastiest meal I have had in years! I...swear. Thank you Pobre for making my horrible day so much better by bringing flavors that swept me away from rainy Helsinki. :)More

Had fantastic Loempia’s as first course and then the heavenly vegan dish Vegetable Ginataan as main. The rich taste, amount of food and very high quality for after all a quite a low price surprised me. I’ll certainly come again during my next trip to...Helsinki. Note: Pobre is located at the 5th floor in Kamppi, a bit difficult to find!More

Visited for diner with colleague before departing from city. Restaurant is located in supermarket food court. Ordered different vegeterian and meat dishes also desserts. All food was very tasty and plenty of many exotic spices. I am wondering how they making asian food- this is...something very special! This place is for exotic food lovers. Restaurant is small and was full on tuesday evening- you must book a table if you go on evening.More

First time here for lunch. It is really small portion. 14€ for 4 slices of pork. It’s said in the menu it’s pork ribs but I didn’t see no ribs but 4 sliced Christmas smoked ham. Food tasted good. But I have never had something...so small. Ridiculous smallMore

I've read good(but also mixed) reviews of this place, but never been in Filipino Restaurant in Finland, so decided to give a chance. Little hard to find first, because late Saturday evening you can only use elevators to go 5th floor of Kamppi Shopping Center,...where is their Food Court area and Pobre is there. Really small place, so forget romantic evening or talking some sensitive subjects. Service was really friendly and fast. We took their 40€/person menus, which included 2 starters+1 main+1 side+1 dessert. What was confusing, that starter prawn included ONE prawn and starter dumpling(s) included ONE dumpling, but same time starter Sisig pork neck was almost like main course size. Anyway, food was tasty and fresh and even some of those starters were small, 40€/menu in the heart of Helsinki is reasonable. However, wines were really expensive. Bottle of basic white was 46€/bottle! So maybe it would be better to have just quick lunch here, instead of dinnerMore
