I just love this place, the best steam vegetarian dumpling I never had in my life. I visited this restaurant in 2012 and now they are still the best. I remember that quite a few lovely staff are still working there. Keep the good work and I will certainly come when I am in San Jose next time.

From Chinese to Thai to Japanese to Indian, this place has it all. They also have some great vegetarian options available as well. The waitstaff seemed a... More

The food was absolutely delicious and after being given the brush off at our 5* hotel's reastaurant because we asked for a vegetarian option, Tin Jo delivered in spades. Go go go - its brilliant!

It had been over a year since I had eaten either Thai or Indian food so when I was in San Jose recently and found out about Tin Jo, I had to go. I actually went twice. I had Phad Thai (my favorite Thai dish) during my first visit. It was only okay. The noodles were not the traditional phad... More
