We have been going to this restaurant for probably 15 years every time we visit Helsinki. The food is really good overall, but their naan is exceptional! Fun place to visit with friends and relatives. Recommend.

Himalaya is cosy and relaxed restaurant and seems to be also popular for the locals. Food is easy to select from the numerous nepalese choices, which are not too spicy but exotic anyway. There are also nepalese beers in the list. A good place to visit every now and then.

Its a mix where Nepali and Indian cuisine meet. Cramped but seems very popular some regulars and tourists.

The restaurant is well located and clean. We came about 15 minutes before the 11-15 lunch menus to be closed. Never the less we got good food with a fast service. Generally I did not notice big difference in the food compared to the Herttoniemi’s Nepalese restaurant. I ate chicken with mild taste and collogue had some hot with two... More

Booked a table over the phone a week in advance. The lady on the phone didn't speak very good Finnish and I had to repeat everything I said. As we arrived, the waiter wasn't aware of the reservation so I suppose she still hadn't understand me. Luckily it was quiet and people were just about to leave from the only... More

In my opinion the absolute best Nepalese in Helsinki. This place has very big portion sizes and the food is always delicious. Especially the big naan breads and tandoori meats. Everything I've tried has been superb, but for years I have adored the Kukhura Saslik and always keep going back for it. They have delicious mango lassi, worth a try... More

A lovely restaurant with friendly staff, spacious with good decor. I ordered one of the Thaalees and was pleasantly surprised. A selection of dishes with rice and naan. Good value for money and the food tasted amazing. I will be definitely coming back to this place when I return to Helsinki.

After a horrible experience at the nearby " The Cock " restaurant where we walked out. Visited the Himalaya - Friendly efficient service, Pleasant ambience - starched tablecloths. Wide variety of Napalese foods - many choices. The food choices are served with a large individual plate with refreshing small salad and accompaniments. Food was delicious and plentiful. Accompanied by a... More

Chana paneer masala and shahi paneer (from finnish "leipäjuusto" home cheese) was delicious. Garlic naan was thin, juicy and crisp. Mint chutney was just right. Been eating here randomly for years, but today's spread was top notch! Dhan'yavāda!

Nepalese is like my "comfort food", and I like to get a take away meal from here every once in a while. The take away meal is really well packed, fresh and there is plenty to eat. As a restaurant the decoration is a bit dated and dark. So, not a fancy place but good food and you get your... More
