Delicious buffet - Edit

Wonderful place with a big lovely buffet. There will be something for everyone, and you can just take the amount of food that fits your level of hunger. They have both soup, salads, warm dishes, dressings, fruit and cakes. You can buy drinks or take water free of charge.
Only one of the dishes out of many was vegetarian, otherwise everything was vegan.
22,80 € per kilo may sound expensive, but a lot of the food is organic and local ingredients. From their website: "We use over 65% organic ingredients, depending on availability and seasonal variety. We use local produce and support fair trade as much as possible."
This was my second time at Silvoplee, and I'll definitely be back again.

My favorite in Helsinki - Edit

Silvoplee is a great place to have lunch. The buffet is always fresh with listed ingredients so there's no confusion about what you're eating. I would eat there everyday if I could, because the rotating options are just THAT good. It feels amazing to pig out on healthy food. It's unfortunately way too expensive for me to eat very often (and I would overeat every day if I went there because there's simply SO much great food), but I savor it whenever I go. I also like the coffee bar & yummy raw vegan desserts downstairs. My only big issue is that the restaurant is always full- it's really hard to find a place to sit most of the time, even right after they open.

Pros: So so delicious, Really big variety, Clearly listed ingredients

Cons: Expensive, Crowded (not their fault- there's ample space)

healthy and bit expensive - Edit

There is great variety of salads, bean sprouts and other healthy food. Warm dishes are quite similar to each other and bit boring to me.

Cons: but too expensive and not so Cousy environment.

pricey - Edit

I can see why people like this place, but my friend and I weren't so impressed with the food we'd had, and the price, even for Helsinki, seemed a bit steep for that kind of place.

Cons: pricey

Delicious buffet - Edit

Such a good variety of different vegan options, the vegetarian ones are absolutely unnecessary.

Awesome vegetarian buffet - Edit

My friend and I weren't even hungry, but we wanted to "just have a look." We ended up getting lunch and had huge plates. The buffet is really fun because you get to try so many different things. They weigh the plate to determine your cost. Lots of raw and vegan options. There were only two non-vegan items the day we went. Very happy we "stopped by!"

Pros: Lots of choices in the buffet, mostly vegan

Cons: expensive

non organic - Edit


they still use gmo or gmo contaminated soy in many foods and call it natural.
and the old staff woman thought that everything is anyway gmo today.
and first time they said they use eco soy whip cream to the cake(and they said its without sugar). next time it wasnt eco and it was from the big american company called alpro soy (very high risc for contamination)and they use maltodextrin from gmo corn plus sugar so that the cake was without sugar was a big lie.
and for this i should pay the highest kiloprice in europe that i have seen in veggie places?
I was giving this place a new chance in 2016 december but they still use the gmo alpro soy american brand whipped soy which is not sugar free even. Very sad that they dont care about this.

Great if you don't mind paying. - Edit

I've been to Silvoplee for years. It started at something like 18.9€ per kilo, and now it's over 21€ per kilo I believe. So if you're a big eater and come hungry, you'll pay easily over 17€ for one big plate. The food is good but nothing special. Also, in my opinion, the food has gotten worse over the years. I also don't agree with their pricing policy. I believe 21€ per kilo is too much, but again, it depends how rich you are. I don't go there anymore too often, mainly because of the price, and because some great new vegan places are opening up in Helsinki.

Pros: Many vegan options, fresh food.

Cons: You'll like it if you don't mind spending.

the best one i have found so far - Edit

Of all the helsinki area vegetarian restaurants I like this one the most. Unlike in many vegetarian restaurants, the meals actually make me feel full and I don't get hungry again right away. They seem to at least try to somewhat meet daily macronutrient needs. It is a shame that it takes so long to drive from espoo and public transport takes too long.

Pros: all ingredients listed, lots of choices in the buffet, organic ingredients used when possible

Cons: expensive, gets full during lunch time, stressful to drive to and no free parking nearby

Brilliant but you pay for it - Edit

Wonderful, fresh, amazing variety. Yes, slightly expensive, but excellent quality & good ingredients are simply more expensive.

Even though it's cafeteria style, it's got a nice atmosphere. They shut at 7pm though so don't go after 6.30pm or you won't have time to eat.

All ingredients are in Finnish but the staff are extremely helpful to point out what wasn't vegan (only two of 30 options were not vegan).

Dessert game strong & a nice range of teas on offer too.

Highly reccomend.

Ps cool health food / product store 50m away across the road too.

Pros: Variety, Fresh, Nearly all vegan

Cons: Slightly expensive , They don't stay open late

Tasty buffet with many vegan options (all?) - Edit

The review is about the lunch buffet and not the café on the ground level.

It works a bit like in a cafeteria - you take a tray, plate and walk around the buffet to fill your plate. At the cashier they will weigh the plate and you pay according to it (was it 12€/kilo?).
The food was good and nicely spiced with only one of the salads (I think lentil salad) being a bit too salty, but of course that might have been a daily mistake and of course possibly subjective. There were many cold options, plus few warm ones and all of those that I checked were vegan. (Each dish had a tag with the ingredients, also good in case of food allergies) Water and bread were included in the price (and the bread really good and home-made!)

Despite the cafeteria system, the place has a cozy atmosphere and I would recommend it - even though it definitely is not the cheapest place to go for lunch.

Pros: Tasty food, Relaxed atmosphere, Quite spacious

Cons: Not inexpensive

Really nice - Edit

various and great vegan food (especially the cakes)
it's a little bit expensive while it makes you feel to be in a cheap place (disposition of the tables, etc.)

Pros: almost everything is vegan (including cakes), lot of various choices

Cons: quite expensive, a canteen more than a restaurant

Cozy and lovely place - Edit

I was too full to try and food but had caffe latte and a raw chocolate bar.
They were just ok but I like the welcoming and cozy atmosphere.

Buffet is almost all vegan and some vegan option desserts.
I'd love to go back there when I'm hungry so I can try their main dishes.

Pros: Nice atmosphere , Staffs speaks English

Cons: Away from the center

Best place in Helsinki - Edit

The spacey restaurant has plenty of options, which makes it nearly impossible to have your meal under 10e - you pay by weight and you want to try everything. They use seasonal and local vegetables, many organic and are very environmental conscious, which adds to the price. Everything is delicious!

Pro tip: if you go there near closing time you might get cake with discount!

Pros: delicious, local & seasonal

Cons: expensive

good food but high price - Edit

There is plenty of food to choose from. There is a price per kilo of food which is 22€ and a little more. The food is not labelled vegan though the ingredients are listed above each tray. It might be hard for foreigners to read what meals are vegan since the ingredients are only listed in Finnish. Overall good experience.

Pros: wide variety of food, large seating area

Cons: kinda expensive, not labelled vegan

very expensive, very good - Edit

I spent 20 euros on a large meal and large slice of cake. It wasn't terribly expensive, but there's an Asian buffet around the corner with all you can eat for 10 euros, so I wouldn't come to Silvoplee twice in one short trip.

That being said, my meal was delicious, only 2 things weren't vegan and the cashier was kind enough to point them out to me in English.

The cake I got was incredible, probably the best I've ever had.

My only advice would just be to remember our eyes are bigger than our stomachs and not to get too much of one thing unless you've had it before, because you don't know if you'll like it!

Free water and access to Helsinki city wifi.

Super tasty food - Edit

It was the best vegetarian restaurant I tried at Helsinki. There were lots of options and everything I put on my plate was delicious. Don't forget to visit the donation based yoga studio at the restaurant's basement.

Very good! - Edit

This restaurant/eatery is very modern and has a hip and appealing interior. The staff is very friendly. They do offer a great buffet which a large variety of dishes (hot and cold ones) which leaves nothing to be desired. They also have a small shop inside the restaurant where you can buy veggie/organic products. And also a very cool point: There is a special smoothie-bar where you can have made a yummy and healthy green smoothie or juice.

And i'm pretty sure the staff will read this post, 'cause we talked about it this afternoon. ;-) So next time when i am in town, I hope to see the sticker at the entrance door, that people always can recognize you're highly recommended on HappyCow! :-)

Cheers and see ya next time!
