the price is not so expensive for a buffet dinner (about 11 eur). i like wide range of the salad selection and grilled chicken. the pizza itself tasted so-so.

Golden Rax pizzabuffet is a chain restaurant, which is why i was really surprised when I visited the Rax in Kuopio. The tables were messy, the pizza tasted poor and the salads didn't look tempting. But hey, at least it's affordable and quick!

Rax chain has buffets all over Finland. Basic idea is the same in every place. Salad and pizza in a buffet. If you like it, this is your place.

A pizza buffet where you can eat as much as you want for 9 euros. The food is ok. In addition to pizza, there is a lot of salad and some other foods as well.
