Of course we had to see what the buzz was all about, so I booked this restaurant to treat a foodie friend of mine. Hard to say which one is the original, is it Bas Bas Bistro or Bas Bas Kulma. I booked a table...to Kulma (which is not actually in the street corner as the name suggests). Tables can be booked only a month in advance and be quick about it! Despite the covid restrictions I don’t think this restaurant could fit any more people in this restaurant… Then the food: good food, but the menu idea needs tweaking since my friend got her sea bass and pork portion at the same time. You really cannot eat two mains at the same time if they’re fish and meat. For me this was not a problem since I ordered pork and carrots for mymain dishes. Also there could be wine recommendations for each dish to make life easier, especially since our waitress told us this was her first shift. Also had to remind the staff that we’d like our wine with the food and then again the glass of port ordered with the dessert. I thought that the food was too salty, especially my main dishes, but my friend thought that it was a bit salty but not too much. To be honest, I didn’t get why this restaurant is so popular.More

The restaurant was fully booked due to Valentine's Day eve. We are not the easiest couple, because we have quite a list of nutritional limitations. But with excellent help from the waiter, we found suitable portions for menu. Food was delicious and the service was...excellent. White wine from Czech Republic and French apple juice were recommended and we found both to be very tasty.More

Excellent food paired with the best service and nicest people in town. Every course melts in your mouth. Wines per glass were nice, nothing spectacular since they do not offer pairings. Next time will go with a bottle. Can’t wait to visit again! Four stars...because our table was not ready when we arrived for our seating and due to Covid restrictions we had to keep up the pace to eat and drink our fill quickly before they stopped serving/had to close up. This influenced the experience..More

Absolutely brillant. No hype, only a great service and a great menu. We were 3 so we took the whole menu and shared. Their home made non-alcoholic drink was also great. I’d give 6 stars out of 5 if possible.

Nice athmosphere and fantastic service. Food is very tasty and looks good too. I propose to take 4 course dinner with a good wine. Remember book a table on-time. Until to the next time.

I was a bit hesitant to visit this restaurant as I was not sure if it’s worth all the ”hype”. My first impression was super relaxed, warm and welcoming. The service was great and you can see the passion they have for good food and...wine. They were really welcoming towards our kids. If you are lucky enough to get a table, go and enjoy this great restaurant!More

Very friendly and yet still professional service. Recommended wines were a perfect fit for the food. Food and wines were absolutely delicious. The atmosphere at the this place is very easygoing and fun. I could see that the staff was having fun while working. They...had a constant smile on their faces and joking around with each other. No sense of hurry or stress even though the place was fully booked throughout the night, as it always is. The pricing is very reasonable, obviously not the cheapest dinner in the town, but it is really very reasonable compared to the high quality. You would easily pay a double price and not get as good food in some of the other fine-dining places in Helsinki. We usually like to go to a different restaurant every time when we want to enjoy a high-quality dinner, just to get a many new experiences as possible. But I think I will make an exception with this one, and return here many times in the future.More

We had a great time with my girlfriend. The service is best what I have experienced and all the foods in menu are delicious. Then you add great wines and you will have perfect dinner. Just amazing place and worth of every penny. You can...trust the employees over there they know what they are doing and you will enjoy.More
