Nice place for good Nepalese food. The lamb tikka masala and chicken tikka masala with garlic naan was a winner. Prices are very reasonable for being in Finland. Service was a bit slow, and the cleanliness can be improved. All in all I recommend this...place.More

Had a palak paneer with plain nan and a glass of white wine. The food was very good, cooked and served quite fast. The place itself has a nice atmosphere, with classic oriental designs, peaceful and quiet. The prices are more or less average for...Helsinki.More

Took 12 foreign guests for dinner here. The restaurant had planned a wonderful menu with three choices for starter, main course and dessert - all considering the allergies of the participants. We had a great evening, and the guest seemed to be very happy with...the choice. I was as well.More

We try this Restaurant because we like this kind of food. Sadly, the server (I think he is the Boss too) was horrible. We order two green salads to start and chicken tandoori - without fresh corriander for me - to continue. The starter was...chicken salad - with some salad and a lot of chicken on it. We ask the server about the error, because chicken for start and as a dish, this is too much chicken. The server was not gently at all, as if it was our fault - he just come back two minutes later with exactly the same plates, after just removing the chicken. No additionnal salade, so the starter was very little - for >6 euros each - and there was not enough dressing at all. Regarding the main menu, food was ok but the server seemed to be angry (about us? Not sure, he was shouting at other personnal members regularly - and there was plenty of... fresh corriander on my chicken !More

I ordered vegetarian birjani at saturday evenig. It taste some old powder -like dirty. They gave 20 % discount but the food was not eatable . Naan bread was good. So 11,9 euros from water and one piece of naan bread. VALVONTAVIRANOMAISTEN olisi syytä tutkia...keittiö.More

Great menu with lots of vegetarian options! The lunch menu is well-built as well, with a handful of options each day (always a few vegetarian options too). The food is always really tasty and the restaurant itself isn’t too big: it’s a nice, cosy place....But the thing I like most about Himalaya is the waitstaff, especially one lady is one of the most welcoming and friendly waitresses I have met in Finland.More

Cosy place and atmosphere. Food is so tasty, fresh ingredients and large portions! Friendly and so helpful and happy service. I especially recommend vegan food choices. My favorite is Aalu Bhanta and Tofu chili.

We'd been traveling throughout Scandinavia for about two weeks when we arrived in Helsinki, and we were really sick of the multi-coursed, Scandinavian meals we had been eating non-stop. We were so happy to find Himalaya, and bonus, it was right around the corner from...our hotel! Our food was really fresh, and the flavors were amazing. I'm a vegetarian, and there were a lot of options for me to choose from. Definitely come here if you're looking for a flavorful and filling meal!More
