My food looked like dogs vomit and the taste wasn't any better. I have eaten in railway stations Namaskaar and the food was really good there! This time I made the mustake and tried this terrible fake place. Would not recommend!

Some what tired Indian style kitchen. Some of the smaller "street kitchens" are better. 5-10 years ago Namaskaar had some spirit and attitude, but I'm not sure if I just had a bad day or is it already yesterdays news.

It was a New Years day and not many places were open so we just hopped in since we love Indian food. Butter chicken didn't taste like butter chicken at all.

I liked the food.I ate lamb of the day and it was really good. Chicken is also ok. You get good value for your money. Pretty cheap prices

Food was ok and service quick. I forgot my wallet but later when I came back to enquire, staff politely hand it over to me. Very honest, I must recommend.

Namaskaar is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Helsinki. It is not the cheapest one. I order always meat or vegeterian thali with naan bread. Lassi is also very good. I can warmly recommend this restaurant.

AKA "India Express." Good value in the central train station. Quick and clean. Staff and menu in english. Nan is fresh prepared, but seems a little "lighter" in texture than in similar restaurants in London or NYC.

If you are coming from the UK for example you will be very disappointed with the quality of Indian food in Helsinki. The food is underspiced, for the Finnish taste, and there are no free popadoms. Due to the under spicing everything tends to taste the same however in an average world there are worst options than this in Helsinki.

Lunch at this restaurant was ok. The service was very fast and the food was ok, taking into consideration that it wasn't expensive.
