Really tasty food and good service. This restaurant is located in a mall in Kamppi (5th floor). Views would be great, if you get a table by the windows - we didn't, so the surroundings were not that good. But for the food, I highly...More

HOKU is a casual restaurant located in the Helsinki Kamppi district started by Ryan Shibuya. Ryan was born and raised in Hawaii and wanted to share some of the great foods from back home. Nothing fancy, just good food in a casual environment.
