I went along with a group of 5 friends for dinner on a normal Friday night. The restaurant was quiet except for us. To begin with the salad bar was 2/3 empty and looked very sad and very much like leftovers. The potions were very small for the main courses, which all were suppose to include rise, but only a...

Visiting this nice Asian restaurant in the Saturday afternoon. Buffet lunch was quite cheap, only 12 euros (not bad price for the weekend). There were a variety of dishes, even sushis. Staff was friendly, food was quite good. Sushi was a disappointment: it was not fresh (rice was too cold).

I had heard many good things of this restaurant and it was a huge disapointment when I went there on lunch and ate the buffet. The food did not look or taste fresh and I was not sure if I should eat the sushi if it's not fresh. The prize was pretty high for tasteless food. I don't really understand... More

Good Chinese food is hard to find in Jyväskylä, but this comes very close. The Sunday buffet is €11 and had a wide selection of vegetarian and meat options. The restaurant has recently expanded and has plenty of seating for everyone. It is a great choice if you don't want to eat more chain restaurant food.

Our family had three different portions and they all were not tasty at like - felt like there were no spices at all. Also the service was not friendly, for example our kids did not get any fork or spoons even we ordered food and drinks for them.

Eaten here many times. Food is nice and cheap, but service could be better. A small family restaurant, but they have expanded few times, so now you can come with a bigger croup also.

Sakura Gawa serves very tasty Chinese food. E.g. Sechuan pork is so delicious! This is cosy restaurant and great value to money.

This is the only Chinese restaurant in Jyväskylä where you have a large variety of dishes, which are done a little bit Finnish style. A nice buffet with sushis! Very friendly Chinese staff. They speak Finnish quite well. :)

This is the first time and also the last time I eat at this restaurant. The restaurant looks cozy with Japanese decoration but in fact, it's a Chinese restaurant. The price is a little cheaper compared to other restaurants in Jyvaskyla, but when I hold the plate, it's so dirty, maybe because it's washed by cold water and the oil... More
