“Birthday Lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I went to this place for my friends birthday Lunch last month. I found the food very greasy and not done well, the owner was looking anxious and tired unable to handle the crowd of 30 people which had been booked a week in advance. Plus, the hall upstairs had total lack of air. It was a dark room with dim lights.

Earliar, once I went with my husband and the waiter brought me crappy paneer tikka. He even gave me the bill right away instead of asking if I wished to go for main course or I needed anything else. Pathetic service...

“Nice food, great prices, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Just had a meal here. Staff were very friendly. Food was lovely and very affordable - really enjoyed the lamb and the naan. Portion sizes were big as well. The service was quick. Couldn't have asked for more from a solo visit to a restaurant. Kitchen is open quite late in the week which is a plus.

I just loooove this place! Friendly service and quality food at reasonable price. Meat Thali is worth trying!

“Great nepalese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been eating at Satkar many times and I have never left disappointed. The meals are tasty and big, definitely worth the money. Naan bread is one of the best in town; definitely better quality than some other nepalese restaurants in Helsinki. It is very popular during lunch time, but there is no need for reservation as the place is very big with additional room upstairs.

“Great location but mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Helsinki probably has too many Nepalese restaurants. After visiting one Nepalese restaurant I had a meal at Satkar just to compare the two. This one just next to the public transport hub and had an interior that looked authentic but its food was far from it. I ordered a lamb dish which was ok but the other bits that accompanied it lacked both quality and quantity. I was very hungry and was happy to compromise. But you are reading this and that means you may have time to explore more.
