Great Nepalese/Indian fusion in a city where options can be limited.

Very tasty food and good service. Don't be dismayed if the restaurant is empty. My only complaint would be the shrimp dish that someone in my party ordered; but really, where do you ever see shrimp in Nepal? An abundance of seafood places in Helsinki; might as well hold off on the shrimp until... read more

One of my lunch time favorites if I am feeling Nepalese in city center. Staff is friendly and the main dishes are big and tasty. Salad buffet is a little bit off the grid with very standard items that doesn't really support the Nepalese cooking. Price very reasonable around 10 euros.

We visited Ravintola BaseCamp for dinner. Extremely laid back service and the food left a lot to be desired. We had ordered momos, daal, lady fingers and one non veg disk. The only edible dish was the lady fingers. I would not recommend this place to any one.

The Finns are quite fond of Nepalese cuisine judging by the many restaurants we spotted in the city. Similar to an Indian curry house with some slight changes, food was good and service the same. Nice little touch of having a call button on the elaborately carved tables. Worth a visit if in Helsinki

The food was fantastic. Such complex flavours. I wish we had something similar at home. The only let down was service could be a bit slow.

Looking for somewhere different to eat in Helsinki I came across Basecamp. The restaurant is nicely furnished and the staff welcoming and professional. The menu is extensive and for Helsinki keenly priced. The food is delicious, spicy and nicely presented, I would definitely come here again.

During our stay in Helsinki, my wife and I decided to take a break from eating traditional Finnish food and instead tried something wildly different: Nepalese. Base Camp is conveniently located between the train station and Senate Square. The food was very tasty, and everything comes with a huge piece of nan (which was almost big enough to use as... More

Basecamp is basically a pretty good restaurant, with excellent value for money. But - the kitchen should be nepalese, instead it is a very mild and European version of what shoud/could be nepalese. If you want real nepalese with some taste in the food as well, you should go somewhere else...

Helsinki offers a wide variety of food types, but I didn't expect Nepalese restaurants. I found two near my downtown hotel and although we visited only Basecamp, the other seemed to also be popular. I don't know anything about Nepalese food, but my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dining here. The food was tasty, prepared and presented with care, and... More
