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.

The food here is delicious and of high quality - particularly the avocado pasta Beware if you do not eat meat. We ordered a rice dish which said it comes with ‘Don’t chicken’. We thought this would mean it’s vegan chicken considering the rest of...the menu appears to be meat free However we were given real chicken. This was quite stressful as we are vegetarian. They swapped it out for tofu for us and did apologise. They said that it happens all the time which suggests they need do make the menu clearerMore

Lucky to find this place, around 1km from the main shopping area, def worth the walk! The best super porridge, with granola, strawberries, caramelised bananas and Nutella!

Both the Buddha bowl 14.50€ [quinoa, sweet potato, cauliflower purée, beetroot hummus, red cabbage, carrot, soybean avocado, chili & coriander with "Nirvana" sauce (chili, lime, ginger)] and the melon salad (melon mix, vegan feta and puffed glass noodle 7€) we ate were delicious as well...as being healthy. You order and pay at the counter. They bring the food to you. You can help yourself to free sparkling (or still) water. The clientele are young Finns, mostly female, slim and healthy looking.More

The food is delicious and healthier. One of the best meals I have enjoyed in Helsinki. We had late night dinner, the service was good and fast.

Overrated. Took over 1 hour to get the food, and the place wasn’t even half full. The food looked way better on the pictures on the website. Would not spend a sunday here again unless more staff at the restaurant. Dry bread. Hinta laatu suhde...ei hyvää.More

Delicious food, generous portions and friendly staff. Toilets were clean and thoughtful (hairspray and tampons free to use, amazing and thank you!!). And to cap it all reasonably priced, given its in the cente of Helsinki!

Brilliantly priced for breakfast. Very good quality yoghurt with nutty seedy muesli sprinkled liberally over it. Then topped with lots of fresh raspberries and a drizzle of honey was a winner. It was a massive bowl too, no skimping here. The scrambled eggs were good...and the poached egg on grainy toast with lashings of avocado was fantastic. Hot chocolate was good, berry smoothy delicious and thick (I added it to my muesli) and the espresso coffee was A1 according to my connoisseur husband. Lots of tables inside and out with shade too. Obviously a popular place as it got quite busy around 10.30am.More

This is a relatively small place. You order at the desk (but only after they have secured a seat for you) and the order is then delivered to your assigned seat / table. I went for a late breakfast on Sunday (on Sunday they only...offer items from a special breakfast/ brunch menu, no lunch items). The place was busy and lively. Despite the fact there were about 4 people ahead of me, as a solo person I was seated within 3-5 min. I ordered Morning Quickie - health shot, avocado toast and coffee of your choice - in my case Cappuccino. There is a self service for water - both still and sparkling are available on tap. I got the health shot and Cappuccino at the time of order, toast came within 5 min. Food was good, nicely presented. The place is lively (on the noisier side) and has an atmosphere.More

I am very pleased that we have popped in to dine in this place. The food looks very appealing, is full of veg so it makes you feel that you are good to your gut and the prices are really decent. The portions are also...rather generous so it is hard to leave this place feeling hungry. They also have this great deal with wine, which I can fully recommend.More

A nice stroll from our hotel we found the Green Hippo. The vibe was relaxed and casual, the staff were friendly and the service was really quick. We both ordered the porridge which was perfect for the cold morning. The coffee was excellent too.

We had a small health problem and the workers were efficient in giving us the help we needed. Had it not been for them the situation could have become much more serious. Undoubtedly an outstanding service. On the other hand, the food was delicious, the...coffee superb and the decoration beautiful. Highly recommended. I can only say thank you.More
