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. :)
