Very fresh buffet table, that looks small but has loads of variety. The food could have more spices! The mangolassi is very delicious!

Went for lunch to this small Vietnames restaurant in Apaja, under the Market place of Kuopio. I was excpecting the normal ethnical restaurant buffet lunch, but got really surprised about the quality and variety of the food! I do not eat meat or poultry, but I still got plenty of dishes to choose, and everything was hand made and so delicious! There are different kind of cold salads, I totally fell in love with authentic Korean kimchi! In the warm buffet, were so delicious veggies, tofus, noodels, spring rolls etc. And many dishes with meat also, though I did not try them, but others said they were delicious, too. Really good mango smoothie, Jasmine tea and coffee for dessert. All for 10 euros in the lunch time. Actually I ate too much, because everything was so delicious! I had to return next day and surely this place will be one of my favourite lunch restaurants in Kuopio! The service was really nice and attendative.

I really waited for this place to open. Mainly because I have always wanted to taste authentic Pho. Place had been open for a week when I had a lunch here and I think they wer still work in process. Part of the warm foods were kinda coldish and there was not everything on set. Tiny things they need to work out and hopefully already have. This place is worth visiting for as it's the only Vietnamese in Kuopio.
