Hoku never let's you down! Perfect place for lunch and dinner is always a great option too. Flavours in the dishes are super tasty and portions are exactly right. Staff and service also excellent. Best seats next to the window/terrace, great for a date night!

A very popular place for lunch, the food is excellent and the prices are not too bad. Nice views from the window tables.

I loved this restaurant. Started from renovation of Kamppi I occasionally came to this restaurant. I had an important friend coming to Helsinki then I booked a table almost a month earlier. We arrived early and told our booking. A lady led us to the table UNDER THE STAIRS. I requested table close to the window and this is the reason I booked the table. There were plenty of tables available close to the window and the staff just said that they are reserved. So how is my booking? I am upset about this argument with this staff and this is very rude to us. Please Hoku, you can do better than that in terms of service. Anyway food is nice still.

Had lunch with friends at Hoku, the place is always full but luckily 5 of us were able to get in during the busy lunch hour, thank you to all the friendly staff. We had salmon teriyaki, siika nanbunzuke, kalua pork and tiger prawns. All dishes were delicious and we enjoyed very much. With 14€ you can have a great lunch with great view and includes coffee.

The main courses where great at this place and we were lucky with great window seats. The riesling was a success too. However service was slow and not too attentive and the appetisers and deserts were ok but nothing more. So all in all mixed feelings about this place. It needs to step up its s@#t a bit more
