Very tasty food (ok,not too spicy) however very good value. For a good curry without breaking the bank. Tandoori starters and then a chicken, fish and lamb dish shared for three. Naan bread was proper pukka.

Helsinki is not a cheap city, this restaurant was a great find, they have a good variety of meals. Prices are very affordable, a main course with a beer will cost under €25. What is nice is that all meals include in the price; rice, naan and salad.

What a nice place and even much better food. Do not let the outside fool you (it looks rather shabby). As soon as you have entered the restaurant you feel that you will not be disappointed. Great Indian/Nepalese Food at a good price. We both loved it. Strong recommendation!!

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
