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???

No doubts best place where to eat... 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.
