I have visited here few times. Food is good, there are Malaysian-Chinese (eg. mixed vege) and Malay (eg. turmeric rice, beef rendang) dishes available. Sometimes special dessert too (eg. sago pudding). The staff has welcomed me with warm and cheerful tone and a bright smile...every time I visit! That's always brighten my day. :) Downside are: lack of parking space, open only during lunch time on weekdays.More

Nice fresh lunch with variety of options (beef, chicken, pork and vege) with nice selection of salads. Value for money. Not like other ”chinese restaurants” in Helsinki.

Been traveling in Europe for quite some time now and I’m seriously craving for some dishes from home. Ravintola Borneo doesn’t just serve Malaysian food, but authentic ones! Definitely have to try out their signature house Rendang, that’s so home. Not forgetting to mention the...good service here. Well, that’s what Malaysians are well known of!More

Lunchtime business buffet, with excellent Asian dishes. Fried rice and thai curry were very tasty. Only E8.50 for main, salads, dessert and coffee. I would return time and again if it was in my country. Reservations also possible at lunchtime.

Fresh ingredients, good quality food. Really tasty. The service was polite and the place is clean. It's too bad they only serve lunch. A little bit more expensive than most lunch places, but well worth it! Will be going here often.

Well laid out Resturant, slightly more expensive than other local lunch restaurants, but excellent food. No licence for alcohol. Well worth a visit.

The place was spacy and comfy and clean, style was modern. There were also bigger tables in the back for groups. The buffet selection was wider than average and the salad portion was also great. Warm foods were all quite spicy, and the spiciest were...marked so. Includes coffee/tea and dessert (mousse, cookies etc). Would go again.More

we go here for lunch quite often, dispite it being slightly pricy for a buffet. their food is always good, the rendang is amazing and you get a mini-desert with your coffe. They have managed to turn an old officebuilding into a cosy restaurant with...smart interior design.More

Ok, I have no idea of what authentic Malaysian food would taste as I've never been there. However I beleive that this is the closest you'd ever get outside Malaysia. Been there several times and shall go again at least once next week. If you...are in Lauttasaari at lunch time, don't miss.More

I have had dinners at their location in Tampere, so I was delighted to find out they have a location in Helsinki, too. Sadly it is open only for lunch, but that is better than nothing. The lunch was great, food very tasty. I also...appreciated the dessert's layout, since the delicious pannacotta had been placed in miniature glasses instead of the normal lunchplaces huge intidy boMore

We have an academic event at this restaurant with a prior arrangement. We were impressed with the facilities, service and food provided. The interior of the private rooms is wonderful and the table presentation was nicely done. The food served (starter, Malaysian style salad; the...main course: Imperial pork chops, Rendang beef, Chicken curry; the dessert: Sago gula Melaka) were impressed our guests a lot especially the turmeric rice with spices. Our guests felt very exited to have their meal on top of a piece of banana leaf, that was a unique experience for them. The taste of food was delicious and rich with favours; the service was good! This restaurant is no doubt a good place for big group (>50 people) and private event, highly recommended!More
