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.

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.

Visited November 10th with my partner. Decor a little shabby but quite charming. Service attentive, excellent English. Drinks very reasonable in price. Had one lamb dish and a chicken thali; both portions were very generous, meat was perfectly cooked and sauces well balanced and extremely flavoursome. Very reasonable bill as rice, naan et cetera included. Excellent.

Visited this restaurant yesterday evening with my team. In short the visit was very average. I chose a lamb curry with 2 chili signs next to it and it was totally not spicy.

It is located at the same block as Hilton Strand. Extensive menu with seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. Wine menu reasonable, available by 3 sizes of glass and a bottle. Naan bread comes with every entry meal. Milder spices adjusted for Europe. Good place, great taste. Happy to return.

Food was delicious traditional Nepalese food and we had a nice table by the window upstairs. Student discount was a nice extra for already reasonably priced meals.
