This place is never busy when I go in, but that is a shame really because the food is very good indeed. Staff are friendly. If in Helsinki, if you fancy this sort of food, then you will not be disappointed.

Was ravenously hungry and tried this restaurant without having checked any reviews. Ambience is very pleasant and the restaurant was very busy on a Tuesday night. Waiter service was prompt and food served on time. I love spicy Indian food so I decided on the...More
