had lunch here yesterday, and it was really really delicious....food was fresh, and spices were really tasty and full of flavour....you can judge that this place is good because it was full of people and at one point there was even a queue at the door waiting to be seated.... 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.

We had dinner here and found out that the food very typical nepalese that you can get at many restaurants in Helsinki. Nothing special that stood out. Basic nepalese cuisine. The tandoori chicken I had wasn´t properly done, a bit raw inside.

The lunch offering of Base Camp is varying, very quickly served and large enough portions. We sampled all surrounding indian/nepalese and found Basecamp to be among the good ones, for lunch. I have not tried the evening menu, so no comments on that. I will certainly use their lunch offerings again.

Tried this place in Helsinki because we enjoy the cuisine and wanted something different. The food was fine and came to the table hot (which was a big plus on a chilly night). The dining room is cozy, but our tablecloth was dirty. The service was fine and the waiter made several good recommendations. We ordered a lamb and a... More

I agree with pradipd25 that this restaurant is overrated. My husband and I decided to give it a try, because the reviews here look great, but unfortunately it was a let down. I will focus on reviewing food quality only, so here it is: - I don't know what the name of the complimentary snack is, but it is way... More

Yes, this is yet another of the generic Indian restaurants that proliferate around Europe masquerading as offering Indian cuisine, when all that they can offer is overcooked, over spiced, over salted food that has very little resemblance to the wonderful Indian cuisine. Of course, they get away with it, because for the most part they cater to the gullible Western... More
