Good meal.

I enjoyed our meal although the meat could have been a bit more tender. Helsinki is a very nice city. I enjoyed my stay there. Cheers!

I ordered a lamb curry which came with rice and naan bread. The food was excellent especially the naan which is as good as those i have tasted from fine Indian restaurants. It was comfort food for me from Asia i had been eating eating western food for the past 2 weeks. I highly recommend it.

Had a meal here with a few friends. The food was good quality, they bring a big jug of tap water which was a nice edition. Everyone's curries where good and even had deaserts. The after eight cocktail was very enjoyable

We had never eaten Nepalese food before, so have no direct comparison, but the food was truly excellent. The restaurant did not look anything special from the outside, but we took a chance. The menu had plenty of choice and we were delighted by our curries (fish and chicken) that were both tasty and came in nicely sized portions including... More

We bought a Groupon deal for 20 € that included a tasting menu for 2. The normal price of the menu was around 40 €, I think. We ordered chicken and vegetarian dishes, and unfortunately the food was a big disappointment. The food was bland and tasteless. The service was OK. According to this experience, I wouldn't recommend this place... More

I was staying at the Hilton Strand and was recommended this restaurant by the hotel concierge. The restaurant is directly behind the hotel. Small, simply decorated, modest, great service and absolutely superb food. It was also not so expensive. I have never had Nepalese food but am now hooked. I would recommend it without any reservation.

The food in Himshikhar has always been good and affordable. The location of the restaurant is not so nice and the interior of the restaurant is quite dark, but it doesn't really matter.

Himshikhar is a solid Nepalese restaurant with a great menu and good service. I eat here often. A good place to come with the whole family, also.

Go upstairs for better surroundings. Staff friendly and speak good English as Nepalese Gherkhas were part of British army. Thalis dishes well presented and very filling. Chicken dish was more distinctively tasty than lamb dish. All ingredients were fresh, well cooked and not drowned in spices! Service very quick and food hot to the table.

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
