“The only Nepalase restaurant I visit in Helsinki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

As there seems to be currently quite a boom with ethnic restaurants in Helsinki region, especially those for Nepalese/Indian cuisine I tend to love this place over others. I already loved it when in the old spot "where you just had to know it". Food is basically the same as in these places in general but it has something in it that makes me return for my "lamb meatballs" meal. Practically easy to find across the street to the "Tennis Palace" where the cinemas are next to Kamppi shopping center / traffic hotspot in midtown.

“A welcome change to the ripoff Helsinki restaurant scene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

In a city where mediocre restaurants - and that is most of them - charge exorbitant amounts for their food and Michelin starred restaurants do not even have functioning website when one tries to book, this little gem near the main bus station provides a welcome break from the savaging of your wallet. The food is simple Nepalese but of very good quality and at lunchtime a main course from the set lunch menu along with a fresh salad, beer and coffee will set you back less than 15€. Try it. You won't be disappointed

“A good quality Nepalese turned sour.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Back in the day Satkar was our favorite place for ethnic food but then they went for the masses, changed the location, atmosphere and quality. That was it for us.

The portions are big and very good. Be careful only if you cannot eat too spicy food.
