“Old Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Namaskaar is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Helsinki. It is not the cheapest one. I order always meat or vegeterian thali with naan bread. Lassi is also very good.
I can warmly recommend this restaurant.

“Fast convenient Indian meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

AKA "India Express." Good value in the central train station. Quick and clean. Staff and menu in english. Nan is fresh prepared, but seems a little "lighter" in texture than in similar restaurants in London or NYC.

“Very Average Indian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

If you are coming from the UK for example you will be very disappointed with the quality of Indian food in Helsinki. The food is underspiced, for the Finnish taste, and there are no free popadoms. Due to the under spicing everything tends to taste the same however in an average world there are worst options than this in Helsinki.

Lunch at this restaurant was ok. The service was very fast and the food was ok, taking into consideration that it wasn't expensive.

“Nice”

It is nice place but the food was not very good. I was for lunch but I think the Ala Carte is the same.
