“Great value in an expensive town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

This is good quality Nepalese food. Portions are generous and there is an excellent range of dishes. This restaurant is certainly to be recommended if you wish to avoid the trap of paying over the odds for Finnish food in the old part of Porvoo.

“Great food with good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Porvoo is my home town and eventhough I've lived elsewhere for the last 20 years I still visit this nice town with my spouse every now and then. During the las 12 months each time we have visited we have been eating at Khukuri. We found the place accidently by just walking by it and decided to give it a try. And it was and still is worth it! The place is cozy, quite small but not stuffed. The service has always been friendly and fast enough. And the food.... Has never let us down. Try lamb curry, it's the best we've had in Finland! Really happy to have a place like that in Porvoo!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

I went there with my boyfriend a few days ago when we visited Porvoo.
We picked the restaurant after we had read the reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed at all.
The place is not that big, but both dishes we ordered were really good. My dish was called special biriani and had rice, chicken,shrimps, cheese and vegetables. The other dish had mutton in it.the lassis were also very good, especially the unflavoured one, which reminded the taste of kefir. Pricewise the bill was average for Finnish standards.

“Nepalese lunch with style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Dropped in for a lunch. High quality interior, white tablecloths etc. Friendly service. A lunch to choose from five alternatives (one fish, one venetarian). A starter salad included, and coffee/tea. Fast service, dishes are served 10 min after ordering. Hot Naan bread included. Food is good, not an overwhelming experience - but good. The salad includes also mangolassi - it is worth tasting, and also the tea; it is nepalese tea flavoured with ginger and cardamom.
