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.

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

I can confirm the quality and excellent taste of food served here. When compared with other indian restaurants, I visited, this one is clearly the best in terms of taste balancing. Here you can taste a perfect blend of all the intended flavours. Secondly, the...service was excellent. We were dining there during weekend, so lunch menu was not available. But still we were offered seconds (they were not needed as the amount of food was perfectly enough). Also the waiter was attentive and informed us that if the food is too spicy or too mild he could exchange it for a different version, more adjusted to our taste. Again this was not needed as the food was perfectly balancedMore

We happen to have chosen the right restaurant, cozy, not very big only about 6 4 person tables but the service is excellent and fine Indian dining. Knowledgeable about the food, patient service and taking the time to explain and great help in choosing the...menu selections, flexible in adjusting the spiciness of the ingredients. Absolutely when we travel to Oulu again we will it at the same place. Thanks for the great experience.More

While hunting for an Inidan Lunch thanks to Google we landed up at this place. We had a great vegetarian lunch and Owner Mr. Rawat went out of the way to make us comfortable. We enjoyed his hospitality and the whole team took care of...our needs. It was a great experience and would love to go back to this restaurants if I lad up there again in Oulu. Keep it up.

a small restuarant - not busy when I visited but with speedy service and tasty food. I came away feeling full after the inclusive meal - poppadum, choice of starters and main courses with water, small dessert and tea/coffee. Recommended.
