The Finnish word kuja means alley, and in a way that is exactly what our bistro wants to offer both locals and passer-byes;
a kind of a hidden alley, where one can forget about the busy streets. Despite us not having table service,
we strongly believe that our great selection of beers, ciders and wines would mean absolutely nothing if they would not be served
with a smile or two.

Located just around the corner from the vibrant Hakaniemi square, we want to gather both friends and strangers together around good food.
Kuja’s kitchen relies heavily on fresh ingredients, offering tastes of both traditional French and American bistro cuisines. We don't even have a microwave oven in our kitchen cause - well, why would we have one? :)

Our kitchen is open until 9:30 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, 'til 22:30 pm on Wednesday and Thursday and until 23:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, and on Sundays the kitchen closes at 8 pm. On Sundays we also serve one of the best brunches in town.

Popping in for lunch is also an appetizing option on weekdays between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. Our main chef Heli thinks up four different lunch choices each and every day, so even the most regular customers will constantly find new dishes to taste.

Feel free to become a regular too!


The age limit at Kuja is 21.

We also welcome dogs!
