Our mission is to serve delicious, healthy food in an environment that is conducive to sharing and caring. We believe that food should nourish us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our dishes are inspired from Asian countries: China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Thailand. We have an extensive vegetarian and vegan menu as well as a gluten free menu. Our Asian themed rooms gather together all the art work we have collected as well as those created by closed friends and frequent diners. Tin Jo is our third child and we are very involved owners. We love to interact with you, our customers and it is our sincere wish that your visit to our restaurant satisfies not only your senses but also uplifts your spirit. With Gratitude,Maria Hon and Robert Faulstich

Amazing atmosphere, incredibly friendly, kind, and smiley waiters. Food is great! Lot's of selections on the menu, definitely something for everyone. I thought dishes would be a lot more expensive (not that they were cheap); definitely, you won't be disappointed.

Our waiter Juan Ignacio was attentive and helped us with some selections and spoke excellent English - which was helpful for us. For appetizers, we tried the Seafood soup which was full of... More
