So the owners of the place have kept a 'little secret'. This little secret is a man living in a small room in the back of the restaurant. This man was forced to work for 15-hour days without pay. He had 3 days 'off' during his 7-month slavery. Never EVER go to this restaurant.

The place is okay I guess, and drinks are really cheap at least. Though I wouldn't describe the place a restaurant, it's a bar and not really a nice one. Beer is like 3 euros, and you can totally see that looking around the groud that hangs around there. There is a smoking room inside and students get discounted prices... More

I went here with couple of friends. We had few pizzas late time friday about 1am . The service was okay and the pizza was awsome! Pizza was like 7.5€ so not the cheapest but still i will return if I'm in the area of Kallio looking for descent pizza!
