Yes, why not

My first time in Restaurant Basecamp in Yliopistonkatu. The food was good and inexpensive. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was nice but only weird thing was the low tables and chairs. I'm 170cm tall and even for me it was somewhat difficult to sit comfortably.

Nothing spectacular but can't really complain about anything either. Good basic Nepalese restaurant. Food was ok too.

Located in the centrum of Helsinki, Basecamp offers a variety of mouth-watering Nepalese dishes. With relaxed atmoshpehere and friendly service the place is in my opinion the best Nepalese restaurant in Helsinki. Paneer and zander foods are especially appetizing.

We were the only guests on a Sunday evening, so service was very efficient and friendly! First glance at the menu, you think it's rather expensive, but then you realise that the price includes a large serving of rice, a small salad, raita, nan bread and beans/dhal. We had lamb meatballs and a medium hot chicken curry with cauliflower and... More

I've been here few days ago with my girlfriend because of the Syö Helsinki. The place is really nice and the waiters are nice. The food is good and the atmosphere really nice. Prices are too high for being a nepalese and i'm sure that it is because of the position (Kaisaniemi).

The plates presentation is also good, and naan bread was... More

I truly enjoyed the sense of humor of the people working in Basecamp. Yet, the real reason to go here is the food.

It had been at least 6 months since I had eaten Indian food. This was one of those evenings when you just wanted to get something to eat and get back to your hotel to sleep. So I took my group into this restaurant on a whim... and it turned out to be a very good decision! Cold beer (Nepalese... More

Came here for dinner and it was pretty good. All the meals were as you would expect, perhaps a bit Finned down in taste but still good. Generous portions, it is finnish prices so still expensive compared to the real thing! Service was quick and easy.

BaseCamp is a Nepalese restaurant nearby the University head building in the very center of Helsinki. The restaurant is very tidy, restful place with very friendly waiters. The food I had was tasty, but not exceptional. Anyway, a good experience.
