Hinta-Laatusuhde kohdallaan. Nopeasti saa siis heti ja hyvää on. Sijaintikin keskellä keskustaa. Käyn usein. Suosittelen. Right in the center of Helsinki. If you need a quick bite, or you have time before the next train, this location is really good. Place to eat alone also.

Its great lunch places around the Main Station. While many other restaurants do not offer lunch menus on weekends, Namaskaar keeps its meal prices all week and even on... More

The food is good, place cozy, quick service. But the food is kind of copy of indian food made for europeans, more similar what local eat in finland, not so spicy and not so rich in flavours. but still it takes good.

The indian food they serve is quite up to Finnish standars. Me personally would like to have it more spicy and tasty. But you won't leave hungry and super friendly staff always makes you feel good.

We visited this place for dinner during out stay in Helsinki. It was really late and the restaurant was about to close. Still the receptionist was kind enough to allow us to have a quick meal. He even prepared fresh naan for all of us. We ordered vegetarian (palak paneer), lentils, chicken and lamb dishes. The food as always was... More

Every time we visit Helsinki, this is our first stop. It is an amazing place for family outings, especially in the summer eating lunch outside is an awesome opportunity.

A friend of mine (finnish) goes to this place once a week, so there has to be something. I wanted to give it a try. We ordered two portions of fish thali which came with naan bread. Food was good and arrived fast. I was prepared to get really spicy food, but it wasn't that spicy. Perhaps that suits peoples... More

The place is run by a bunch of friendly Bengalis and Bangladeshis who will offer you a good dish and friendly chatter! The meal portions were very generous and it was all very flavorful. Definite recommendation to anyone looking for their Indian curry fix. Good location at the train station as well.
