We were treated courteously and found the restaurant quiet enough to have good conversation. Dinner was quite good with lots of choices. The service that was interested in the fact we were having a good time. From a very experienced traveler I highly recommend.

We were staying nearby and saw the reviews so thought we'd give it a go. Downstairs is more a bar with a couple of people reading papers, but the restaurant is upstairs. It wouldn't win any Finnish design awards but nice enough. However the food was really excellent. They gave us complimentary popadoms with caraway seeds plus a delicious quite hot dip. That was the perfect starter and all we needed because the mains come with rice, salad and a huge naan bread; very filling. We had the potato and asparagus (quite spicy) and a fish dish. Plus 2 Nepalese beers the total was €45 which is OK for Helsinki.
Definitely recommended.

North Indian mildly spiced food, fresh flavours, served piping hot. Fresh, hot nan bread. Excellent, attentive service. Staff spoke excellent English. We ate upstairs, and enjoyed the views and light from the large windows. The Nepalese coffee with cardamom, ginger and warm milk was a highlight.

Very good service and nice food. The mo mos are like Chinese dumplings, but should be left to the Chinese! The more usual Nepalese fare was excellent and great portions. Go along and enjoy some great food.

The food was absolutely delicious. Plus, the prices weren't bad, either.
I found nepalese food to be quite similar to the dishes I had in India. The flavours were authentic and not fixed to fit finnish preferences. With less than 20€ you get your dish, including rice, and for a plus, you get some crispy bread (I don't think it's naan or roti, but I don't know the name of it) which is so flavourful!

I ordered paneer, which is my favourite, but I couldn't eat the half of it! It was so filling and although the plate didn't look too big, the portion was enormous. Although we enjoyed the food a lot, the servant asked if we didn't like our food since we left so much of it. They asked if we wanted to take the rest with us, but unfortunately we were staying in a hotel and that wasn't an option.

The service there is terrific: they are so nice and friendly and you don't have to wait long for the food!
