Went with my husband on our anniversary, just for the momos. They tasted just like the ones we ate in india! We ordered the lamb and vegetable ones, both really tasty. Naan bread that came with the momosoup was the best naan I have had in Finland. Nice selection of Nepalese beer.

I often visit the place during lunchtime as they offer very good budget choices with salad. The place has the best naan bread among Nepalese restaurant in Finland I have visited. Chicken dishes are strongly recommended! Service is really fast and staff is very attentive. Kitchen could make as spicy food as u ask for. All is good.

I visited this place with my family and my in-laws. The service was not very good. Although the restaurant was almost empty they took lot of time to deliver the order. The taste of food was also not up to the mark. The rice was poorly cooked (not completely cooked).

First of all, I would rate it better than 'Average' but certainly not 'Very Good'. During our visit to Hakaniemi market square we were looking for restaurant serving Indian lunch/food and discovered this place. I ordered Lamb meat balls with mint gravy and my wife ordered garlic chicken curry. Both the meals came with small portion of lentils and some... More

Momos were very nice and the accompanying soup too. The Alu Govi was a bit too oily and spicy for my taste but it was ok. Very close to our hotel. So we may come again.

This place is very near to the Hilton hotel I was staying. Large menu of Indian dishes. there were only a few people but the food was good. The waiter recommended a spicy chicken dish (kukhuraku shiraz) which was very tasty. It came with an excellent nan. Big portions, so no need for an appetizer. I also liked the Nepalese... More

I found this place by recommendation. I usually pass the restaurant but never thought of going in. Today we did. Loved it. We had an amazing meal. The price is good and the portion is big. From Malaysia, I love spices especially chili. This restaurant uses a lot of spices. Highly recommended!
