I found this place by recommendation. I usually pass the restaurant but never thought of going in. Today we did. Loved it. We had an amazing meal. The price is good and the portion is big. From Malaysia, I love spices especially chili. This restaurant uses a lot of spices. Highly recommended!

We walked to this Restaurant as it was at the back of our Hotel, although dimmly lit there was a nice ambience in the place , food was very good and authenticly presented. It was quiet when we visited but there was plenty of tables for busy times also. Well worth a visit if you like a nice curry!

We had a very nice dinner together and enjoyed the excellent food. The Naan was excellent! The food with one 'pepper' is not too spicy, so don't be afraid to go adventurous. We walked in without reservation on a Saturday, and there was enough space. The restaurant is located behind the Hilton Hotel.

I have been regular customer for almost ten year. The quality has varied over the years; now it's better than few years ago, but not as good as when I started to visit the place. Lunch time could be crowded, you can take it away as well. If you like it hot, ask extra spices and you will get it.... More

We went here in our first night in Helsinki- food was so tasty - price was not bad as it included rice and bread. Pleasant staff. Very close proximity to Scandic Paasi hotel. I had the Chicken Thali and would highly recommend!

I eat at this restaurant every time I visit Helsinki and have always come away impressed with the quality of the food and the quality of the service. This time I tried the Alu Tusa Tarkari, a very generous and delicious asparagus-potato curry served with Basmati rice and an amazing Naan. The person who served the food, Khimananda Khanal, was...

At first I thought it was closed as I couldn't see anybody through the windows. Then I crossed the road and noticed the upstairs and people eating, so I went back. Very glad I did. Great service with good English spoken and what seemed a genuine interest in what I thought. Nice crispy poppodum with a tasty 'pickle'. For my... More

Could not have been better. Amazing Naan, large portions, food came quickly and was fantastic. The chicken was very tender and the sauce was perfect. I've had Indian before where it's too greasy and this was not the case.

I would recommend you chicken curry with basmati rice, naan and mango lassi. I was delighted with the taste, smell and also the view as the food was served on a brass plates. I can't wait to go there again during my next stay in Helsinki.
