We lived in China for two years and were searching for good Chinese food here in Costa Rica. Now we could say 'we found it'. Food and service is great, location not so much. Strongly recommend.

The place offers Thai, Viet, Malaysian, Indian, Indonesian and Chinese dishes. The staff is friendly, the decor is nice, and the value for money is good. It may feel a bit tame for experts, but leaving that aside this restaurant will make you feel happy.

I love spicy food and when I found out that this restaurant has both Indian and Thai food on it's menu I knew that I had to go. What's even better is the fact that all the food they cook is delicious (but pricey) so you can sample a variety of Asian culinary styles under one roof. Provecho!

We went to Tin Jo on our 1st night in San Jose. We were starving and wanted something familiar after an awful day of flight delays. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend going there if you want a change of pace!

It is by far the best Thai food restaurant in San Jose, the staff is very friendly and committed. The Kung Pao chicken is one of my favorite plates!! Highly recommended
