We couldn't believe that we could get authentic Thai and Chinese food in Lapland until we visited Arctic Asia. It was like eating in any great Chinese or Thai restaurant in the world. The service was great too.

A week long in Finland and this was the restaurant who gave us best vegetarian food. Period. They customized many different vegetairan dishes on Ala Carte for us. The stir fry vegetables was very delicious and well prepared. We had a hearty meal here.

This restaurant in Northern Lapland was really a positive surprise. I ordered "Chinese soup with reindeer meat" and it was delicious, little bit spicy but not too spicy for me, one of best exotic soups I have had. My main food was chicken with chili...More

They were friendly, food was very fresh, good quality ingredients, decent option for vegetarians, large portions, a bit spicy (u can ask them to make it less spicy). Highly recommend Panang and green curry !

Dear Mari, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the food, we are very proud of our chefs. However, I think there might be some kind of a misunderstanding with regards to notifying you about the up-coming reservation. Indeed, you were kindly told a few times...More

We were a large family group of 17 so we came for the buffet (available until 6pm) as this meant we could eat straight away. The food was good quality although the range of choices was limited: soup plus 2 types of rice and 4...More

Nothing special at this restaurant, and not really asian food taste. Poor choice of the buffet and a la cart. Not traditional decorated. You won’t starve but you won’t leave impressed from here either.

Don't get your expectations up. This place caters to asian tourism. But I must say that I the taste is pretty authentic. Buffet is a small selection, but it is ok. The alacarte menu is more expensive that the buffet, but their portions are quite...More
