We stopped here for a quick snack so we didn't get to try a large part of the menu. We just had some samosas. While those were not that expensive (for Scandinavia) the beer prices were really high. While it would be good to try more of the menu if we stayed in Joensuu again, we would reconsider ordering the... More

I visited Jecika tonight and was the only one in the restaurant. I ordered chicken marsala and asked for naan bread. The guy said the naan bread would take 15 min so I passed. However, after 5 min I heard the famous microwave bing! I should have ordered the naan bread at least something would have been fresh! I really... More

Not a good lunch! They have a lunch buffee for 8€. Unfortunately the food is mostly tasteless and sauces taste like water and chili. The day I went there they had also "Finnish" meatballs. Just awful! Definetely not home made. Pakoras were cold, chewy and tasteless. I remember the food being pretty good some years ago. What has happened???

Jecika is right in the very center of Joensuu, just where Cumulus hotel is. Don't expect a luxuriant New-York-like Indian restaurant: Jecika is simply furnished. However the food is really nice and genuine, and fairly priced. The owner is absolutely helpful and smiling and all together it makes a very pleasant dining experience. No doubts best place where to eat... More

Jecika is an exceptionally good place. It is the only Indian restaurant in town, but still they are able to provide real Indian-taste food. The menu is quite wide and also Indian drinks available. We had a tasty Tandoori-Chicken and were very satisfied to the service and reasonably priced food. I can recommend this anyone who is willing to taste... More

The restaurant menu was very impressive as it had quite many verity of Indian food on offer. The food is moderately priced. You can also order Indian beverages with your meal. Given the fact that its the only Indian restaurant in town, it still serves good Indian food. I mean there is no fooling around about food.
