Not much of a boom for Indian restaurants at the moment, but Nepalese food is very popular and they offer similar type of food.

There is no lack of Indian restaurants in Helsinki. The Namaskaar fast-food chain is good for a quick bite while touring; they are all over the central area and have vegetarian options. For more relaxed dining, my favourite is the old-established Samrat on Esplanadi. Map: http://www.samrat.fi/en/yhteystiedoten

I would steer clear of Pikku Nepali.

That's a Namaskaar. Like I said, they're all over. OK for a quick, cheap feed. Nothing fancy.

Namaskaar has a place in the wing by the Eliel square. Best one in the centre imo. I use it regularly for take away.

As to catering to hotels, it's not that usual to call for food delivery, take away is more common, but mostly for private homes. When travelling wanting to eat in, it's usually the hotels own room service.

I'm ok with Pikku Nepali, Namaskaar (the only one I could remember yesterday) however is an insult to Indian food, quick and microwaved.

Samrat is very nice thou!

Peshawar http://www.peshawar.fi/index.php?lang=en is OK, but then again it's probaly out of your scope since it's Pakistani.

There used to be an independent delivery company but they ran down their operations a couple of months ago. There's not enough volume for such a business with the level of cost we have here. Pizza you can have delivered, but that's just about it.

Just bite the bullet and go out for dinner.

A Filipina friend of mine told me the rice at Pikku Nepal tasted of cockroach, which is why I don't advise the place, Mrs_MM77. After all, Filipinos are world-class experts on both rice and cockroaches.
