I work in an office nearby, and Himshikar is a favourite place for lunch among our staff. The dishes are usually great value, also the sides like the naan bread are well prepared, and we always get a friendly welcome. It's in a very busy street, so it doesn't look that inviting from the outside, but it's worth looking in!... More

This place looks a bit grim from the outside, but if you go upstairs it is OK. Service is friendly. Food is OK, not exceptional, but good value - if you order a curry you get all the trimmings with it including naan, rice, daal and raita. So don't order any extras!

Had a very good meal at Himshikhar this evening. Was looking for somewhere simple and reasonably priced as travelling alone on business. The restaurant itself is not fancy in terms of decor but clean and the welcome and service through the meal were good. Meal came with rice, naan and papadum included and was plenty. Just over 20 euro for... More

Whoh.. I was so suprised. Amazing shrimpfood they have there. Naan -bread is very good. Definately will go again. Decoratively it wasnt really good. Music was ok but suddenly it started playing some club house. Staff was nice and the size of meal was big. Very hard to walk after.

It was so cold in Helsinki and this restaurant was only 2 minutes of walk from my hotel and I tried. I didn't expect much, but this was really an AMAZING food. I would love to go back in Helsinki just to go to this Nepalese restaurant again!

I just got back from Himshikhar and had a great dinner there. Fast and friendly service. The food was very authentic and plentiful. I am afraid they think I did not like it because there was so much on the plate that I could not even finish half. Prices are very reasonable. I often go to Nepali and Indian restaurants,... More

You will get big portions of tasty food in this place. Don't order several dishes because almost every dish goes with rice and bread. Enjoy!

Friendly, fast service and flavourful but mild Nepalese food. The lunch menu is varied and reasonably priced.

We were treated courteously and found the restaurant quiet enough to have good conversation. Dinner was quite good with lots of choices. The service that was interested in the fact we were having a good time. From a very experienced traveler I highly recommend.
