Food was great, Nepalise standard. Very polite and friendly service. Only the dessert in our menu was a disappoinment; cool and icy jelly cubes tasting cinnamon. But the local desserts are like that, very different from Finnish sweet ones. Customers visiting the Theatre close to this restaurant got some small discount also.

Very good place, I recommend! Nothing to complain about, good service, good food and a tiny but cozy place! My first time in a nepalese restaurant, ordered tandoori chicken which was really tasty and it came fast. Definitely going there again!

We love North Indian food and eat often. We expected Nepalese to be close. However, every dish had the same taste of tomato and chili. We asked for medium spicy but got food that had way too much chilli in it but not many other spices. Indian food is rich in taste, but this was not - only chilli and... More

Delicious food, beautiful decoration, calm atmosphere. The service was excellent. We ordered 2 dishes that came with bread and rice. Bothe the lamb tandoori and the chicken were very tasty, excellent sauce. Two serves more than adequate. We could not finish the dishes

Camed in 45 minutes before closing but we were nicely escorted to a table and had some delicious dishes: cheese with vegetables, lam and rind. The cocktails are highly recommended!

This is about 5-10 mins from the city center. Food is good but for an average person, the portion size is just about more than what I can normally manage to eat. The Nepalese/Indian soft music adds to the rich experience of dining here.

Yes, some people may be a little stunned to opt for a Nepalese restaurant while in Helsinki, but you really have to check this place out. The curry was spicy and amazing! and the bottle of champagne we had along with it was also delicious as well. The place quickly filled up, a sure sign of how delicious this restaurant... More

We came in on a Sunday night and by 830 the restaurant was packed and delivery personnel were coming and going like crazy. The dishes were quite similar to Indian dishes and just as delish. The shrimp curry was amazing as were the parathas. It is located in a nice part of Helsinki and away from the Esplanade area. We... More
