Got to love the food in Shalimar! I always have to pay a visit, while I am in Jyväskylä. They have everything in balance, at least in vegetarian dishes. My favourite is Palak paneer, it is hard to beat! Naan bread is delicious, raita is authentic. Warm recommendation!

Thank Sanna-Kaisa

Excellent and tasty Indian food. Situated at the corner of train/bus station this little pearl of a restaurant serves very good tandoori dishes.

I visited Ravintola Shalimar on a recent trip to Jyvaskyla. The food was excellent! My only complaint is that the restaurant was not open late enough to bring my husband back with me for dinner. Highly recommended

This may be my favorite restaurant now, it's located at Matkakeskus (= the combined bus and railway station) in the city center. Take-away portions are big in my opinion, and they are only 10€. I love palak panir (homemade cheese and sauce, comes with rice), try that!
