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.

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

I like the athmosprere and that you can change rice to fried noodles( with a small price). They made my vegan friends also special dishes. Best Asian restaurant in Jyväskylä.

This is quite small restaurant at the centre of Jyväskylä. They have a buffet meal at lunch time. You can eat as much as you want and the price is cheap. Their food is typical Chinese and it doesn't differ from the rest. At least on Saturdays they offer sushi with lunch buffet but I haven't seen any other japanese... More

Cheap & very good food. Owners speak finnish. We went there, because my wife likes chinese food. Sat down and ordered a starter to share and 2 meals. After eating my wife had dessert and it was great! All this for just 26 euros is very cheap when comparing to other restaurants in Finland. Most of the dishes were from... More
