Very good burgers! The burger beef was so juicy and tasty, and the burger pun was so fluffy and good! Service friendly! I would go again!

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

The burgers are freshly made each day and are very delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes a great homemade burger and fries.

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

Slow, unprofessional and unfriendly service did not make my day. ): The food is not bad. Great location in the centre of Helsinki though.

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

Went here on the evening of Saturday 25 January 2020. Friendly staff, clean environment, easy concept and overall great burgers and fries. Great value for money and yummy food. Easy location so don’t overlook it.

Fantastic burger joint located close to the Helsinki rail station. Aioli and mushroom burgers were tasty and the topped fries were good as well.
