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. (Minus the alley thugs from DC Comics :)
We believe strongly that our great selection of beers, ciders and wines would mean absolutely nothing if they wouldn’t be served with a smile or two.

Located just around the corner from the vibrant Hakaniemi square, we also 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 - as our main chef Mika put it - "it would just make me lazy".

Our kitchen is open until 9:30 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, 'til 11 pm from Wednesday to Saturday, and on Sundays the kitchen closes at 8 pm. On Saturdays and Sundays we also serve one of the best brunches in town.

Popping in for lunch is also an appetizing option on weekdays between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm. 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.
