This was my second visit to Tin Jo and it was as good if not better than the first. The staff was warm and welcoming, spoke perfect English, to my not so perfect Spanish. The restaurant was packed but we were never hurried. The food was wonderful, varied, and beautifully served.

I found some great reviews about Tin-Jo. So before leaving the states I facebooked inquiring about a reservation. They were spot on & replied quickly. We were seated promptly & they brought out crispy wontons to munch on while we decided on dinner. Fried rice was sooo good as well as curry chicken, Kung pow chicken & fried pork potstickers....

Tin Jo has it all; super delicious food from about five different Asian countries, very helpful and attentive staff, a great wine list and inviting décor. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and is handily located just a few blocks away from the national museum in central San Jose. I was pleasantly surprised to find such an... More
