Very nice ambient, friendy staff and delicious food. I had some lamb balls with tomato sauce and a sice salad/hummus/couscous and it was very good. There is a DJ inside the restaurant and the whole place has this very cool vibe. It is not the cheapest place to go (35 euros for a meal and a glass of wine) but it is a great experience.

Highly recommended.

My daughter, who is a habitue took us for Father's day brunch to Sandro and we were not disappointed. The outside may be a little deceptive (looks like some hippie cafe) but the inside is quite OK, simple but nice cozy tables. There is a buffet, which for brunch consists of an enormous salad buffet, a somewhat more modest warm buffet (with exen fish, sausage and meat) and a very large and appetizing choice of desserts. So the common mistake is to fill your stomach with the salad choices and then stuff yourself to the brim with the rest, after which you roll out somewhat dazed. I found most of the salads very tasty and very varying, the warm vegetable alternatives excellent, the sausage a little too greasy and the desserts excellent although it could have had more exotic alternatives. The price is not cheap, as the place seems to be on the height of its popularity but there is enough of everything and even sparkling wine is inlcuded in the price. There was a special ambiance with lots of fathers and children, which would not be the case in normal brunches. In any case it is a child-friendly place, although most of the foods are not so much for children (my daughter went straight to the dessert table). In any case, this is a very good addition to the restaurant offering in Helsinki.

We ended up having lunch here as one of the group was adamant of the tastiness of the buffet. The full lunch is not especially cheap for a lunch, but still ok. It included a variety of salads and several different Moroccan (-like) main dishes. Some of them were tastier than others, but I'm not really an expert on this style of food. Meat-eaters please note, that all of the dishes are vegetarian.

I took my guests from abroad here for a Moroccan brunch and they were extremely satisfied and found the food delicious. I've visited the place a few times for dinner too and cant complain. Nice staff and good food - definitely worth getting the shared plates.

Went there a couple of times, once for bruch and an another time for a quick lunch. There's always this huge choice of salads, but I found them a bit tasteless, it's Mediterranean food adapted to Finnish taste (they don't like spicy food at all). Even the tajine was missing some additional ingredients and taste.
The price is ok for lunch but it's getting excessive for the bruch, it's maybe because I'm not a huge eater and I get full quickly, who knows...
