Went for lunch and they have a special roll every lunch for only $8. It was super yummy and great for a lunch under $10! The service was also very good. One of my favorite sushi places in Columbia!

I have been to this restaurant twice in the past two months and each time was very disappointed. On my most recent visit I had the Kung Pau dish and found it too spicy to eat. It was also overcooked. On my first visit i tried the pad Thai and found it to be too bland. The restaurant is also... More

I ordered the bi bim bop. It looked wonderful but tasted as of something was burnt during the cooking process and they didn't bother to start over and should have. The place was empty and the service was still slow, the waitress wasn't very friendly either. I won't be back.

The service was great-they arrived half an hour before they said they would. The food though was not that great-I've had great Chinese food cuisine and I have had bad and this restaurant is closer to the bad side. My daughter liked it-so if you have kids they will probably be pleased, but for me I would advise Pizza or... More

We have been going to Jina Yoo's for more than five years now. A couple of years ago we were a little unhappy with the consistency of the food prep. Fortunately, the problem seems to have gone away and we have been very satisfies on our recent visits. The menu is creative, and the Pan Asian food served here is... More

Dinned on New Years Eve and was impressed. All the dishes were presented well and the flavors were all that I expected and more. We will go back for sure.

This is now a must-have dinner when I visit Columbia. It is well worth the effort to find this slightly-out-of-the-way place. Lovely restaurant, great service, and sushi rolls that are amazing. The crab rangoons are a must. Monkey Goes Nuts (we always end up ordering ANOTHER one of these!), Alaskan Volcano, and Tiger in the Jungle were our choices this... More

I visited with my college-student daughter and her friend, and we had a wonderful late-night dinner. The crab rangoons were wonderful. We tried the roll with lobster -- it was really good, as was the roll topped with melted pepper jack cheese. But the hands down winner was the Monkey Goes Nuts roll -- we like it so much the... More

Nice place and the service was good but the sushi was overpriced and just average. No real flavor to it, we had the two specialty rolls at $14 a pop and just were not impressed at all. Save yourself and don't go here if you're looking for good sushi.

We had the "crabby basket" for an appetizer--best crab rangoon I've ever had, they actually use real Dungeness crab! The eggrolls were delicious as well. We had a gift certificate and a deal for $10 off $25, so we decided to get the most expensive sushi combo plate. The signature roll we chose was not great (I think it was... More
