Restaurant Gaijin is Tomi Björck and Matti Wikberg’s second restaurant. Gaijin takes you on a journey to North Asia. Located in an excellent spot on the corner of Bulevardi and Yrjönkatu, the restaurant opened its doors in April of 2011. Gaijin offers unique flavors by combining traditional Japanese and Korean dishes with dishes from the North of China, in a modern way. The restaurant’s facilities are suitable for various kinds of events and gatherings. The dining room has a warm intimate atmosphere suitable for a private dining experience, whilst the bar is a relaxed lounge area with long communal tables and a sunny terrace which offers something for everyone. Irasshaimase! That means welcome in Japanese.



At Gaijin eating is all about socializing and most of the dishes have been designed to be shared. Gaijin’s chef has designed two set menus and by choosing one for your entire table, you can jump on board the train of flavors. Let our experienced staff lead the way. We have also designed drink packages which complement the flavors throughout the menu. All dishes can be enjoyed at the same time with other dishes and we encourage you to mix different flavors. Food and drink is an integral part of the Gaijin family and we’re happy to share it with you.



Gaijin’s drink list has taken its time to develop, a bit like some of the finest wines on the list. It is a sign of a passionate approach to wines, other high quality drinks and gastronomy. It has been affected by trips abroad, intuition, tips from friends, professional partners and above all, our own senses. Tasting is where it all begins and where it also ends. Tasting drinks has given us an opportunity to recognize quality and compile our own list, with one amazing drink after another at a good price-quality ratio.
