Nice atmosphere and great, tasty food!! Also service was very good, even got smiles out of the waiter (which I find rare in Helsinki). Pricy but you won't mind a bit of a splurge once in a while. Their foor is definitely worth it! Will recommend this place and come again, and again :)

In a almost empty restaurant with just 4 other tables on a Friday night, This restaurant should be avoided and here is why.... 1) The waiters are all really stiff, arrogant and clearly had no personality, they do not talk to the customers and when you greet the staff they look at you as if you are mad. They also... More

Service was poor, staff unable to propery greet or offer any friendliness. Food was also subpar, started with onion bahjis which werent cooked through, and poppadoms which were burnt. The mains portion sizes were all over the place, with some much smaller than others.

They say indian hotel, food is average, but the people here are racists, they say indian hotel but do not like Indian or south Asian origin Guests, as though they do not pay any money & real money is paid by only foreigners, I prefer to stay hungry rather than experience racist behavior from a stupid waiter.

I have visited quite a few Indian restaurants around Helsinki during my stay and Samrat has by far been our favorite. They serve delicious traditional Indian dishes, and as far as I heard they have a professional chef from India. We tasted a variety of dishes and the kids especially loved the chicken dishes and the naan bread straight from... More

We were here for late lunch on week day. We ordered veg korma and lamb. The food was nice especially the raita was authentic. On the way in we were greeted nicely. However I noticed that the staff had minimum interaction with customers. No 'did you like the food', 'anything else' and not even bringing the bill to the table.... More
