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.

Excellent cozy indian restaurant close to the train station with a central location. The service was warm and welcoming and the food very comforting and cozy. Thank you. I had the palak paneer (rice and naan included) and a chai. Huippu ravintola Oulun keskustassa rautatieaseman...läheisyydessä. Lämmin ja ystävällinen palvelu. Henkilökunta selkeästi välittää asiakkaistaan. Ruoka oli juuri mitä kaipasin täyttävää ja hyvää. Kiitos!More

Had a surprisingly tasty dinner in this place. Had my meal medium spicy. Also, close to the railway station, which might be convenient for some.

Tasty food, very good quality, much meat and meat was good quality. Exellent service. Best Indian food place in town. Much other places try to save and put bad quality and little meat, nor here.

While in town for the Irish Festival, myself and three friends had a great meal here. We had been unable to get a table elsewhere, so I rang here on the off-chance, and enquired in my rusty Finnish if they could accomodate us. We went...straight there, and were delighted! Our waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgable. We were all amazed that each dish came also with basmati rice and naan bread, and a plate of tasty poppadums with chutney and chili sauce came straight away. Portion sizes were very generous, and I suspect that 3 dishes between the four of us would have sufficed: none of us liked to waste such tasty food. Unfortunately, one of our orders was mistaken (with the chicken version coming instead of the vegetable), and so the one vegetarian in our group was unable to partake of the fourth dish. Although I didn't have the lassi, I am reliably informed by my friend that it was among the best she had ever had. I will definitely return on my next trip!More

Best Indian Restaurant in Oulu. We went in the super cold December night. But it was a memorable dinner. The food is tasty and the quantity is good. The owner and the chef is very friendly. Great hospitality.

Thirteen euro for a lunch isn't expensive in this part of the world. Offer starts at half past ten in the morning, so you can easily call it your brunch instead. High quality on, maybe, ten hot alternatives, half of them vegetarian, plus bread and...a handfull of cold dishes. Well worth its price. Very friendly service.More

It was a perfect evening. The food was really good. The main dish had really good flavour! We got a greeting from the kitchen and a dessert and as much bread we needed.

We went here for a lunch. There were variety of options to choose from, and they were super delicious. The moment we stepped in we felt welcomed and every employee made sure we felt it the whole time we visited the place. Most friendliest people...and the most delicous and fulfilling lunch in a while!More

I made a brief visit to this small, cozy Indian restaurant before the departure of my train, and I gotta say, I was actually impressed by it. The food was surprisingly delicious and the staff was super friendly and talkative. Extra points for fresh naan...bread and a tasty dessert. If I had had more time I would've stayed here longer for sure!More
