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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Truly delicious food, attentive service. Great menu including an excellent vegetarian selection. The staff explained that their spices were toned down for their Finnish tastes but offered to adjust our order to our taste. They delighted in our love of Indian food. We visited in...the evening when it was quite quiet, however they do a lunchtime buffet which was clearly popular. It is a little away from the busy centre of town and an unassuming restaurant but well worth the detour if you love Indian food.More

Food was yummy! My apprehension that Indian food is not good in places like these was all shattered by this visit. The host of the restaurant was very friendly and he added to the visit. VISIT RECOMMENDED !!!

Excellent high quality Indian restaurant in the heart of Helsinki for coulinary visits to Indian cuisine. High quality authentic Indian tastes and menu options. All options well though for customer. An excellent introduction to new comers wanting to familiarise with Indian cuisine, dishes, tastes and...spices (with a guarantee to authenticity of the cuisine). All food materials clean, tasty and of high quality. Must mention chicken, meats, sauces and vegetables. An enjoyable and unforgettable visit to authentic Indian tastes with good taste and signature. A guaranteed first class experience. Recommended. Worth visiting for journalists for press articles (Where to go)(restaurants, tastes and places).More

Monal is a few steps from Roba. In spite of a bit worn out look of the interior we experienced a tasty and well prepared special dinner. Service was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely visit Monal again!

We have enjoyed lunch during a weekday. The ambience was a bit meager but still with an welcoming touch. Not many people were there but the food is nice so don't worry about that

I bought take out from Monal one evening while visiting Helsinki. I was absolutely satisfied with the good taste of the food and of the naan that comes included in every meal. When ordering take out, you get 10 % off the price and given...that the naan is included as well, the price becomes very resonable! The plastic packaging makes the dinner safe to carry home without spills.More

I was staying in Helsinki with my son, and we found this was the nearest Indian restaurant for us, it was a Monday night and the restaurant was empty, which wasn't a good sign, but we had read some reviews, which were good, the staff...were very pleasant and very helpful, the popadoms were free of charge, but they weren't very nice, it was liking eating what you make at home, and only mango Chutney. The curries we had were excellent, so our overall experience was very good.More
