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.

Tasty Russian food. Reasonable price. Come whenever you feel nostalgic and try some fizzy Russian drinks like Dushes or Tarhun:)

Good food, small place, the owner runs the complete show alone which is quite nice to watch. I recommend it. The russian bier is no good though...

I really liked this restaurant. It is themed, with all the attributes of Russian cuisine. The food is very tasty, the portions are good, thanks to which we were full to our fill.

We decided to stop off in Helsinki before heading to Lapland. I am so glad we did because we were able to visit this restaurant. It was great to visit an authentic Russian restaurant again. The Borsch soup was just as good as the one...I had in Moscow!More

The food was excellent, the flavours were balanced and the portions big enough to vanguish hunger. Jazz music on the bacround could have been something else, but that didn't affect on the experience. We would have preferred personal service since we were the only customers....On the other hand we chose to order from the online menu... Will come back, defo!More

Somehow visit to bliinit did not work out for me. Unfortunately they still don't have menus printed even though covid times are over and my phone was running out of juice. E-menu was hard to navigate, prices were hidden. The staff was unfriendly and rude...and did not offer any help with food selection.More

First of all, every single thing we ordered was just perfect. It was Christmas Day and we were the only ones out and about, having flown in that morning. We had 5 in our party. The owner was working - he was so friendly, easygoing....This is what we ordered: mushroom soup, salmon soup, meat dumplings, roe blini, mushroom w potato blini, mushroom and cheese blini. cabbage and egg blini. Stuffed. Wonderful food.More

We got borscht and dumplings with meat and the presentation and taste were amazing. For dessert we go rooibis tea with blini with ice cream and strawberry jam. The tea came in a big cup and was freshly brewed. The blini were delicate and delicious....Definitely 10/10 experience!More

I loved my experience at this restaurant! This restaurant might not be very fancy, but the food is very good, and I like it better that way! The food is also affordable, considering that goods in Finland are generally expensive. I mostly enjoy lesser known...restaurants, and this is one. The food seems to be a fusion between Finnish; Ukrainian; Chinese; and Russian cooking, but mostly Russian cooking. The ordering is simple, easy, and digital through scanning a QR code. The owner is nice as well, so make sure to give this place a try if you are in Helsinki! Cheers!More
