One of the only places to get Thai food in San Jose. Their menu is pretty diverse and the food is delicious.. reasonably priced (but not cheap). Nice atmosphere too.

I have eaten at Tin Jo's several times and have walked away having enjoyed the multitude of flavors each time. The service is friendly and responsive. You can order from a choice of Thai, Japanese, Indian and more. You can choose your level of spiceyness form 1-5. This restaurant has several theme rooms based on various Asian countries. It adds...

Tin Jo is probably the best Asian restaurant in Costa Rica as it is so tasty and it offers mild to spicy for almost all the dishes so you can choose the spiciness of your dish. Not only is it a great restaurant but the owners are delightful.

absolutely amazing food and staff. Waitress was Sandra. She was very attentive and between her limited English and our limited Spanish,it was difficult but she did an amazing job. Orange chicken was so fresh. Pad Thai chicken was great!

Excellent food, service and reasonably priced. My only 'complaint' was my Vegetable Indian Curry wasn't as spicy (hot) as expected, however, it was just as enjoyable. I sampled the other 2 dishes my friends were having and they both were just as tasty.

We were in San Jose craving Asian food and found Tin Jo. It's located in Chinatown. The food is a fusion of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian. The place was packed on a Sat night. If you are looking for authentic Asian food, I think this is as good as it gets in San Jose.

Being an Asian, it has become part of my family's practice to try out Chinese restaurants in the different places we visit. Tin Jo with it's own history of their family moving to CR in the long past and establishing as one of the traditional dining place in CR, I found myself going into the restaurant's small front door to...
