Nice lunch in a nice surroundings. Had a chicken burger on their terrace outside and it was very tasty. They also had a vegetarian buffet as an option.

Nice interesting place, cosy interior. The staff was welcoming, serviceminded and friendly, and the meny read like an interesting cross over meny. However, the quinoa kimchi burger that i ordered was partilly charcoaled beyond edible.

Was blown away by the fantastic vegan options at this classy, cool place. Had a tasty foccacia then tofu caesar salad to start, followed by chargrilled seitan and harissa cauliflower. The fresh flavours, presentation and service were all incredible. I also enjoyed the virgin cocktails...and vegan crem brule desert. I will make a point of coming back here when next in Helsinki.More

A place to visit with your friends or as a couple! The restaurant is cosy and offers a relaxed environment with friendly staff. Had the menu, vegan caesar and chicken, and was very happy with my choice! Would recommend! In the summer, they also have...a great terrace to hang out in. :)More

We had a Saturday brunch here. Reserved a place and we had 1,5hours to dine. When we arrived, I was slightly shocked at the worn and very stained carpet at the entrance. Quite a negative first impression. Inside the place looks nice, good atmosphere. We...were seated at the back. Lighting was a bit dim for my liking. Food was good and they had lots of different options available: hot food, cold food, salads, fruit, bread etc. Also dessert and tea/coffee. Most food was vegan, with 3 non-vegan options (one hot food with meat, one cold salad with salmon, and some eggs). This was all quite nice, and at a very affordable price. A visit to the toilet was unpleasant. The toilets have the original doors from what looks like an old nightclub/pub - full of graffiti, holes and smell a bit of alcohol (I have a good sense of smell). Also the was basin was cracked and lighting was terrible. I checked the other toilets and they were the same. Because of the toilets and the entrance I would most likely not return to this place. Maybe some people would find them "cool", which is why they have left them like this. So for those of you who don't mind stains and holes, this is a good option for a cheaper Saturday brunch. In the pictures on tripadvisor the place looks much lighter and gives a very flattering image of the place. I think they would really benefit of a small renovation.More

The food itself is a solid 5/5. The restaurant offers a great variaty of vegan meals. The drinks are also super tasty! Definitely will visit again soon. A small minus is the service. It takes a forever for the foods to get to the table...(even when it’s not a rush time or many others dining), and another forever when the waitresses even arrive to your table to take your orders. The food is so good though so it is worth waiting for. The atmosphere is nice and decoration very pretty.More

One of the best everyday lunch spots in the city, especially during the warm season. The food comprises of two warm dishes server with rice and bread, and a huge salad buffet with loads of vegetarian/vegan sauces and salads. It's genius that the warm food...has meat, but only a small amount. So you can enjoy a light lunch that doesn't knock you down for the afternoon (disclaimer: ONLY if you can resist the all you can eat nature of the enticing salad buffet that has so much to sample). As with all lunch places, you will get bored if you go too often. Contents and the quality of the salad table are not constant, but you probably won't be disappointed on your first visit. Unlike what is customary in Helsinki, the coffee/tea is not included in the lunch. And one more thing, in addition to the nice buffet they also have couple of a la carte lunch options that change every week, costing a couple of euros extra. The place is usually very lively, and has a big terrace that is a good option weather permitting. Usually you can find a spot though, but it can get a bit full during the noon peak. Loved by locals and easy for tourists, I can fully recommend you try this place UNLESS you're looking for a substantial dose of animal protein :)More

Onda has an almost all-vegan lunch buffet, where there’s lots of different salads and spreads that are all vegan, and two mains out of which one is vegan and the other one not. Everything is really healthy with tons of flavour, and the venue is...a cool converted building in hip Kallio neighbourhood.More
