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.

Although I'm not vegan I prefer vegan food when I am eating out and thankfully, Helsinki is really good in that respect. on the 25th of August, we wanted to have dinner here with one of my friends as part of Helsinki Herkkuappro and tasted...their burgers. Let's be honest, there are way better vegan burgers that you can have in Helsinki. The main problem was about their bun. I guess unlike using vegan buns from companies like Beyond Meat, they decided to do their own. However, it was falling apart easily, and huge corn ickers were disappointing. The same falling apart problem applies to their burger bread as well. It was failing to keep all the stuff together and eating the burger was a bit of a pain. Though prices were okay and service time was acceptable as well. Still, you can find better vegan burgers in Helsinki so might be a good idea to look out for them.More

Very good, one of the few affordable places to eat in Helsiki and the quality is quite good! I liked their chicken burgers a lot. Ate here for two days in a row.

I have been dieting for my sister's wedding which was 2 days ago. Yesterday i had the biggest lunch i've ever had in my life! I've been to this place a year ago and was craving it ever since. The food was just as good...as last time, but the staff and customer service has definitely improved! The fries are great and who can say no to free refill?More

Everyone had been talking about this place so decided to check it out. We got the veggie burger and a regular burger and both were decent - decent size with sweet buns and good french fries. The food was alright but nothing that would stand...out nor make me repeat the visit. It was a nice one-time visitMore

Burgers and fries are good, but still fast food quality. Unfortunately, heavy takeout orders obstruct service so bad that customer have to wait whole restaurant time for their food. And after half an hour wait, the other burger was the wrong one. Compensation effort took...so long that we had to leave. Service was trying their best, but this concept (fast not fast) is just wrong, no-one could handle it. So don't go for a quick bite, even though this place tries to be one, it is not!More

This place is amazing if you like a good burger - which I do! Stumbled across it on day 1 and loved it, but wanted to try somewhere else on the 2 night.. long story short, I ended up back here and missed a business...meeting on day 3 to fit in before my flight home. So, yes, I would recommend!More

The place was busy in the afternoon. Service was good but the burgers, tasteless, the on site made bun, tasted like paper mache. The fries look good, bit overdone and again, no taste at all. You eat better at McDonald's/Hesburger and for half the price.

The owners stated goal is a unique experience. I think that's accomplished. Regarding the standard burger meal...The tres cooked fries while not especially my fav are unique and a welcomed difference. Ingredient quality is excellent and immediately apparent. The bun, fresh and soft internally did...however have a rather tuff skin that interfered with that first bite. Bottom line bullseye, for a few euros more than the corporates and significantly less than "burger" restaurants Friends and Burgers is a takes the win.More

Friends & Brgrs is a chain but don’t let this fool you: it is nothing like normal fast food places. They use the best ingredients and turn them into fantastic burgers. Of course it’s way more expensve than McDonald’s or Burger King but it’s one...of the places where you’re really HAPPY to pay - yes. Because what you get is so so good that you do not care at all about the price and you really only appreciate the result. Great job by the Friends & Brgrs team and their successful concept.More

A popular place that is quite centrally located, so be aware that peak times can be a little nuts. The ingredients have always been fresh. The buns are soft and warm. The fries are (usually) crispy. The staff at the till and service window have,...as far as I have experienced these past few years, have all been pleasant. They also have a fairly diverse menu, so most people (including vegans) can eat here. The only thing is that the quality has plummeted these past two months. I don't know if there has been a change in management or what, but we've had everything from soggy or cold food to completely incorrect orders. WE haven't given up on this place, but will maybe avoid it for at least a month, just to see if things work themselves out.More
