“Gandi or Gandhi”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

An Indian restaurant that cannot even spell the iconic name Gandhi correctly, is highly unlikely to get the cuisine right. It should be an early warning to any potential diner looking to enjoy authentic Indian cuisine. But then, as my readers here will notice, I am not exactly a fan of Indian restaurants in Europe (outside of the UK), and seriously believe that they are doing a tremendous disservice to the wonderful and rich Indian cuisine and should be banned. There ought to be a law against this type of Indian restaurants who only cater to the gullible Western diner who only knows about chicken tikka. Need I say more about this restaurant?

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Took a chance after visiting the Olympic Stadium and had a pleasant lunch at a reasonable price.
Not much to look at but friendly staff and very acceptable, uncomplicated Indian food.
Cheap and tasty is a common theme with reviewers and I agree.

“Budget lunch, ok food quick service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I am food tour guide in Helsinki and therefore I am going to different places to get good hints for my customers where to eat.

This time I was having lunch between meetings alone. Food was super cheap and I couldn't finish all of it. Portion was huge. I had vegetarian meal, it came with salad and naan. Service was really quick that is positive during lunch.
Coffee and tea was included to price. And all of this for 7 euros. Defenately good value for the money although food is avarage level.

We went for dinner and the food was ok. Decent service and prices are ok. I wouldnt recommend as a good indian place in town but it is a good place if you are near by and just want to eat a decent meal.
