San Jose's culinary scene is getting better all the time, yet for people used to great Thai on every corner, dining can leave a lot to be desired. Tin Jo offers an extensive menu with plenty of options to quiet the craving. The decor is stunning and the vibe welcoming, and the service has always been adequate. That said, be... More

My favorite. I celebrate my birthday with lunch or dinner and I always have a great experience. Very good service, nice and clean atmosphere in the heart of San José downtown. Love it!

Take a taxi to the Tin Jo. Don't even think about walking here. Very nice Asian fusion offerings, and the wine list is quite good.

We found this place to provide a welcome relief from the standard comida fare. The service was great and the atmosphere nice. However of the six dishes we tried none of them tasted authentic. Also this isn't a place to on a budget.

The neighborhood maybe little strange but food is good. The manager came to our table couple of time to secure everything was fine. The taste of dishes is very gentle that seems to be off track from real Asian dishes. But no damage at all.

I´ve been several times here, and it´s a very good place for Asian food. In San Jose you won´t find many places like this. It has a long menu (maybe too long, but until now I´ve just tried my favorites and haven´t been disappointed). Good service and good price. On weekends I recommend you make a reservation.
