About
The Finnish word kuja means alley, and in a way that is exactly what our bistro wants to offer both locals and passer-byes – a kind of a hidden alley, where one can forget about the busy streets. We believe strongly that our great selection of beers, ciders and wines would mean absolutely nothing if they wouldn’t be served with a smile or two. Located just around the corner from the vibrant Hakaniemi square, we want to gather both friends and strangers together around good food. Kuja’s kitchen relies heavily on fresh ingredients, offering tastes of both traditional French and American bistro cuisines

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.

Have visited many times before, now they had redone their menu and burgers, and I don't think for the better. Fries looked like and tasted like the cheapest ones you can get from the freezer section in the shop. Sweet potato fries were a lot better though, not as good as the old sweet potato wedges though. Vegan burger had nice balance of flavours, could have had little bit more mayonnaise for the coleslaw, the cabbage taste was overpowering everything else a bit, but good overall, the buns were amazing. Kuja burger had thoroughly overcooked patty, nice bacon jam, but suffered from the patty little bit too much. Gluten free bun was okay. I like the atmossphere and the decorations of this place, service has always been good too. I hope they get back their good old menu sometime, not going to visit after this experience with the current menu.

Popped in here for a quick bite to eat. Two burgers and chips with two pints of local beer came to a total of €47.50. Burgers were large and delicious and the beer was cold and refreshing, all in all hit the spot 👍🏻

The Kuja Burger is so delicious and with that you get your belly full! The place is cozy and staffi s very friendly. Order your food and drinks and pay them first at the counter and take your drinks with you and get a free table. The food will be delivered to the table. I like the system, when you don't need to wait for the staff for the bill! You can get also Flamkuchen ( White pizzas) here.

What a great little place, the service was superb, and the food excellent. What a burger, tasty moist but not greasy. Great fries, the beer menu on the blackboard is simple and straight forward. No hidden extras , straight up, great place to eat. We did not book , but were lucky as a table had just been vacated, i would recommend booking on the evidence of this food.

Had one of the best burgers of my life and the tap IPA was delish. Nice and cosy and a laid back atmosphere. Finns eat burgers with a knife and fork so did we....

After frequenting Kuja’s brunches I knew they make good food, but I was nevertheless in awe with their twist on the traditional Finnish macaroni casserole. The lunch menu changes daily, but if you happen to visit on a day that it’s on offer, do not hesitate tasting this dish 😗👌

Kuja is the right place to eat a supeeeer burger! The meat was perfectly cooked, and the tastes were delicious. Unique neo the service was quite slow just for 4 burgers. Highly suggested 👍🏻

We ate here for dinner. My husband had two good beers on draft and I had the most amazing lemon marscapone risotto with smoked salmon. It was one of the best salmon dishes I’ve ever eaten. A reasonably priced place with delicious food and friendly service.

The price is moderate but the portions are gigantic. The quality of the food is very good and the stuff is friendly. We packed half of the portion almost every time we came. Nice calm location. Fine and tasty soup and salad buffet.

A nice restaurant with tasty food, relaxed atmosphere and good service. Great burger with fries, and fresh salad buffet, soup and coffee included. Highly recommendable for a lunch!

Kuja is in my neighbourhood, so have dined here several times over the years. The atmosphere is very warm and the restaurant is almost always quite busy. Great flammkuchen (‘pizza’), burgers and salads. For Finland, the price-quality ratio is pretty decent. What I really like about this place is that even though they are popular, they haven’t done the mistake of increasing prices and increasingly opting for worse quality ingredients; instead they have stayed true to their style and the food has been consistently good over the years. A big plus for being a dog friendly place too!

Cozy place with pleasant atmosphere. Lunch was good, but salad table was quite tiny. Nice surprise was the price of a wine glass in addition to a lunch, it was very cheap. Nice location close to the sea. Easy to go by tram, bus or subway.

The hotel staff suggested this restaurant for dinner, we are pleased they did. A little bit out of the main area, this restaurant serves very good food, my salmon and asparagus were cooked to perfection. The front of house staff member was vibrant and really made us feel welcome. Best place we ate at in our 4 days in Helsinki
