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.

Both the salmon and the smooth salsify soup are so delicious! The bowl is huge though, so sharing might be a good idea :)

Soppakeittio is one of the best places to taste salmon soup in Helsinki. The soup has salmon, mussels and shrimp in it. Portions are quite big. Price is very reasonable. Personnel is friendly. Thanks.

Tasted the most delicious salmon soup here. Very good portion size, I couldn't finish mine, with fresh bread and herb dip. People round us were delighted with the spinach and kale soup and the lamb (the other two soups on offer). Friendly staff and good...service. Great value for money. Loved people watching in the market whilst eating. Get here early though because once the soup made daily has gone they shut.More

We have chosen to have lunch here based on lonely planet recommendation and came back also next day. We tasted meat and vegetable soups and all of them were great, portions were big enough also for my husband. Great soup for colder day in Helsinki!

We stopped in the Market while exploring Helsinki, looking for lunch. While there were multiple stalls that had some tasty-looking options, they all lost their luster as soon as we walked by Soppakeittio and smelled their soups! They are as delicious as they smell! We...both got the salmon soup ... two weeks later and my mouth is watering as I type this and think about it with the TONS of tender salmon in it! If there us a line, don't worry - the wait isn't too long (people moved in and out quickly) and it is SO worth it!More

Found this place during my lunch break and ordered an archipelago salmon soup. It showed to be delicious with fresh bread. For me the best part was that the soup had lots of pieces of salmon : D

Soppakeittio used to be my go-to place twice a month at least because of its delicious soup and bread. However, I haven't been there in the last few months and decided to reset the tradition again today with a colleague. The first thing I noticed...was that a delicious dark bread they used to have (which was one more reason why I went so often) was replaced to common white bread and it wasn't tasty AT ALL. I asked the staff about it and they said that this will be the norm from now on because the place has new owners and they have changed things. OK. Then I got the fish(salmon) soup I ordered and I noticed that there were about 5 small pieces of salmon and the rest was full potatoes. Honestly, if I wanted potato soup, I would have ordered potato soup. The oil used also tasted differently from what I was used to. I am giving the experience today a terrible rating because I was very disappointing. I hope the new owners of the place will rethink their strategy and keep the place intact because it really is a gem close to the city center.More

I ate at this resto twice - once at the food hall location in the city center next to the water and once a bit north at the food hall in Kallio. Neither location had more than four varieties of soup on offer. At the...Kallio location, I arrived slightly after 1 pm and all soups were still available. I was able to be seated immediately, which was a great relief as the market was incredibly busy. I had the salmon soup with potatoes and it was very good. The broth was quite light; I could tell the salmon was not super fresh but it still was enjoyable. A few days later, I had the bouillabaisse at the city center location much later in the afternoon. It was one of the few soups left, and I enjoyed it more than the salmon/potato soup from my previous visit. The bouillabaisse is not the traditional French version; it has mussels, shrimp, salmon, and root veggies. It's also served with a dollop of a mayo-type ingredient. It had a lovely taste and was perfect on such a rainy day. Soup is around 11 Euro which seems to be a standard price in Helsinki.More

Among all of the different food options inside the food hall, we opted for this soup kitchen. The menu is simple, a few soup options, but the two soups we tried were delicious. There are a handful of tables and bar seats inside the food...stand, but I can imagine it gets crowded. We ordered then sat down, and were rewarded with plenty of water and delicious bread to start with. The soup was very good too!More

Happened upon this cozy little soup stand in an indoor market. Few soup choices, but all excellent and freshly prepared. The fish chowder and tomato soup are particularly excellent. The short wait for a table was well worth it. Service is efficient and friendly. A...must stop for a quick and informal lunch.More
