I had the Base Camp special, which is a bit pricey but one gets to taste a bit of everything form tandori and for the drink I had a Indian King Chakra beer. This set was pure perfection. The restaurant is clean, mid sized and atmospheric place. Staff was also really friendly. --- Söin Base Camp Specialin, joka on aika... More

Don't be fooled by the slightly faded and warped menu outside the door, this place is brilliant! Stumbled on it by mistake after traipsing around the centre of Helsinki trying to find somewhere nice that was open and wouldn't cost the earth. Inside is all carpets and dark wood, carved tables, although most of our focus was on the menus... More

Nepalese food is popular in Finland, hence you have many Nepalese restaurants in town - and most of them are really good. Base Camp is no exception. The food is delicious and certainly value for your money. If you like your food spicy, be sure to select something marked with the chili symbol. The restaurant is popular but there is... More

Have visited four time in Kathmandu and relly loved the food - city is very special but also lovelyby it's own way. In Basecamp you'll find similar flavours eventhough might be more Pochara style. Anyhow, very tastefull food, friendly service and authentic decoration. Also, Nepalese Everest beer available. Good for take-out as well. Reasonable price level. Been here many times... More

I went to this restaurant for the third time. The other two times it was fine, but today it was not. Service was swift but not very good and the food was almost cold. It wasn't possible to switch the rice for anything else. One portion was good but the other was a real disappointment especially compared to the price... More

First visit at Basecamp and don't know how we have missed it before. We went with friends on a Saturday night and the restaurant was about half full at 7pm. I think we beat the rush. We ordered some samosas as appetizers, which had just the right amount of spice. For main courses, we each had something different and all... More
