    Vapiano: Easy way to get great food

    Vapiano - Helsinki

    Apparently Vapiano is a global chain but this is the first time we have come across it.
    The concept is great - as you enter you are handed a credit card. You go to the station of your choice and order the pasta dish (these can be quite limited but still good). They cook the food for you right there as you watch. This particular restaurant had lots of room including an outdoor terrace which is the best place to enjoy a warm sunny Helsinki evening. You order your drinks and go back as many times as you wish, each time handing over your "credit card" for the additional items to be added to your bill. At the end of your meal, you simply take your card to the cash desk and pay the total accumulated on the card. Simple and very efficient.

    In July 2012, a meal for 2 including 2 drinks was 32 Euro.

    Favorite Dish: Pasta Nobile was very good.

    Vapiano Helsinki is now open. With its big and sunny summer terrace it is the best place to have lunch or spent the evening with friends in the heart of the city. Lot of choices of fresh pasta, pizza & salads. Good selection of wines. Prices are reasonable, pasta & pizza from 7,30 EUR.

    Favorite Dish: Pasta Scampi e Spinaci

    VAPIANO: VAPIANO comes to Helsinki

    This place used to be Eatz & Texas, now VAPIANO are coming here :)
    This restaurant networks are already in Tallinn where I visited last year, a modern trendy style of self service restaurant with typical Italian menu of pasta, pizza & bar. This place will replace the old restaurant that used to be here and hopefully with the standard good quality and service the Vapiano are famous for.

    Favorite Dish: Will be open in June 2011

  • Eatz-: Food Poisoning

    My husband and I went to Eatz, before going to a movie. He had a Leningrad Cowboys Burger, me the Nachos with all kinds of dips and cheeses etc. First it took 50 minutes before we were served our food, we barely had time to eat it before the show started, so we didnt want to complain that it was all cold. It also was of poor quality. Worst of all though, we both spent two days in bed, with diarrhea, vomiting, and a fever - of course you never know if it was that food, but it is highly probable, as we had nothing else to eat or to drink that night.

    Thats what made this restaurant a special place for us

    Following the comments from Helsinki VT members, we tried the international mix of foods of Eatz. The location is great for any visitor because is close to the Main Station Square. In summer you can try outdoor and enjoy the sun. You can choose from a variety of dishes from pizza to sushi at a reasonable price.

    Favorite Dish: Sushi Bar!

    Eatz-: Great Mexican food

    This is actually an international hodge-podge of specialties: you could get pizza, sushi, fajitas, a juice roast beef, you name it. Nice people working there, very friendly, and the service was relatively fast. Pricey? Well, average for Finland, I guess.

    Favorite Dish: Only tried the fajitas.

    This restaurant is really unique. You can order food from alot's of different cultures there. There's an australian bar and a sushiside of the restaurant. You can also get portions for 2 persons or more. Their wines are great, and the restaurant is one of my favourite.

    Favorite Dish: The sushi is made on demand, so it's really fresh. Meatdishes are also great, and the shrimpcoctail starter is wonderful.

    Eatz-: The best cross-kitchen in Helsinki

    Eatz by night

    If you don`t know for sure what kind of food you would like to have choose Eatz. In Eatz you can enjoy a Middle East, Indian, Asian, Mediterranean or texmex dinner. All tasty and filling!

    Favorite Dish: There are many different kind of kitchens where to choose in Eatz but the texmex is a great pick. I took a sweet potato chowder with canjun shrimp as a starter and it was really good. Enough spicy, you know. Then I had a Texas BBQ beef. That was soooo gooood and also it was very big portion. I ended up my evening with Mojito.

    a very nice restaurant when you are with a large group of friend and you cant decide what kind of food you want to it.
    the menu include so many different foods: asiatic, mexican, spanish, oriental...
    big portions again!
    nice place and decoration.
    + disco.
    and downstairs is more like a café, can be very nice too during the day.
    they have a huge terrasse during the summer.

    EATZ: It's a lot, but still not all that:)

    This cafe, nite club, sushi bar and restaurant complex is partly owned by former formula 1 driver Mika Salo, who can be spotted there. The food is ok, nothing special though, especially considering the price. The tiny nite club is fairly popular with salsa club on wednesdays. Even now, after 2 years after opening, the dining restaurant is so popular that you should book ahead. So there must be something about it... But the terrace is a must on sunny summer days!

    Favorite Dish: Thai, Tex Mex, Indian & Italian wannabe-menus.

  • Eatz: Eatz

    by lillamyy Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eatz is a huge place with a café, several bars, a sushi bar, a restaurant and a club area. The decor is colorful and a bit crazy, with asian influence and mosaic on tha walls and staircase. The food is a bit 'crazy' too as they have 4 different menus, indian, thai, mexican and italian, with a couple of appetizers and 4-5 main courses each. A great way to sample many things, and avoid a fight with your friends when everyone wants something different. If it's authenticity your looking for it's better to head off to specifically italian, indian etc. restaurants, but the food is quite good and the athmosohere is just great.
    The sushi bar is supposed to be amazing too, the only of it's kind in helsinki offering good sushi fast and cheaper than japanese restaurants. F1-driver Mika Salo is a co-owner of the restaurant and his wife is japanese and apparently has a lot to do with the sushi bar turning out so great.

    Favorite Dish: I've only tried their thai vegetable noodels which were good, but not amazing. My freind LOVED their indian curry (I can't remember which one she had...).

    The service leaves something to be desired but the food was good and prices were reasonable

    Favorite Dish: I had the Vegetarian Balti which was great with a naan bread
