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
