Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Aivan täydellistä nepalilaista ruokaa! Ravintolan tunnelma on hyvä ja paikka erittäin keskeinen torin alla. Helppo pysäköidä P-Toriparkkiin. Absolutely perfect Nepalese food! The atmosphere of the restaurant is good and the place very central under the market place. Easy parking in P-Toriparkki.

Nice interior with harmonic background music and extremely friendly staff. Buffet table included vegetarian and non-vegetarian food with a great variety. It was nicely spicy and if not enough possible add nepalese hot chili sauce. Heh-heh. We loved this place.

Friendly service but lamb was like chewing gum, couldn't cut all the pieces. Rice was overcooked, and so were the onions In the sauce.Too much salt in the chicken. Shrimp soup too plain, No value for money. Won' t visit again.

Very basic nepalese restaurant. Not very spicy even vindaloo. Service friendly and quick. No toilet on the premises. Just in the shopping centre.

Not bad, but nothing special either. We had a weekend lunch here and it was just OK, I don’t think I’ll return.

We ordered food from Wolt, and the delivery went well, nothing special there. The suprise was that the restaurant has their own vacuum sealer for take awat foods. With compartments for sauce, rice and the meat. So 5/5 for the packaging. The food was above...avarage for the pricepoint. Nothing super fancy, but good enough to order again. Easy recommendation.More

Late lunch with friends. We found the place by accident (by using trip advisor). Friendly service and fast. Food was a disappointment- everything tasted the same. We compared the 4 dishes we ordered. No usage of fresh herbs. The majn taste was chili. We have...been traveling in india etc and we know what authentic nepalese food should taste like. So if you go here you will get food to eat but it is not authentic nor something you want to try again. Once is enoughMore

My husband and I came for dinner and were very impressed with the Nepalese food. The naan bread was the best we've ever had.

It was a monday afternoon and the whole place was closing, however the staff let me in anyway, which was nice. I made a recommended pick and enjoyed it. Usually I wouldn't enjoy Nepalese food because of the spices but this one was really suitable....I recommend this place if you want a quick meal or want to spend more time with a company. The staff is really friendly, restaurant clean and quiet, overall impression good. Just a little difficult to find since the place is in an underground tunnel linking two sides of the square.More

We bought a buffet, it costs 10 euros. If you order something from the menu you can use a student sale 15 %. The buffet is delicious, not too many options but really excellent. I loved the naani bread SO MUCH!
