Until a few decades ago, sushi was a delicacy for a few in Helsinki. Today, eating sushi has become a popular trend. Helsinki’s restaurant offer is full of various sushi restaurants and sushi buffets. One of these is such a popular trend setter that it has set the standards for all other sushi buffets. Luckiefun’s is a family restaurant in Sörnäinen, originally founded in the mid-1990s. Today, Luckiefun’s has restaurants in more than 20 different locations around Finland and the pace does not seem to be fading.
Luckiefun’s story started in Sörnäinen
It was year 1996, when it was decided to set up a family restaurant called Hong Fu in Sörnäinen. At that time, Helsinki’s restaurant offer was simpler and there was no sushi buffets. Restaurants came and went but one thing was clear: Luckiefun’s future was yet to come. The actual upheaval came in 2015. At that time, the family’s long-standing restaurant needed a successor. The mother of the family no longer had the opportunity to run the place completely alone and younger skills from within the family were needed to help.
At the time, 24-year-old Luckie Bao had mostly assisted in the restaurant’s kitchen and had no intention of entering the restaurant business. However, he decided to agree, but the restaurant in Sörnäinen would need a total image renewal. Phoenixes, dragons, and other Chinese-style decorations would be replaced with a more contemporary as well as more modern look. The biggest change was the menu.
The small family restaurant became a massive sushi buffet chain
Today, Luckiefun’s restaurant is familiar to many Finns. Sörnäinen’s small family restaurant grew into a massive chain of more than 20 restaurants.
Luckiefun’s has put a lot of effort to serve the best selection of food. There is vast variety of different kind of sushi. In addition to the more traditional salmon nigiri sushi, slightly more special sushi such as strawberry sushi are on display. If you are not a big sushi lover, hot Asian food such as deep-fried chickens, a variety of wok and even a salad bar are also available. Luckiefun’s has a strong focus on vegan options and a wide selection of vegan sushi is available. The price of the buffet also includes a comprehensive dessert, which already seals a good deal. The food supply always varies according to the location. The widest range of food can be found in shopping centers such as
