Jinja's decor is rich & sumptuous with an old world feel. With locations in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, this popular eatery serves up delicious Asian Fusion with a menu that came into being after the owner and chef traveled the world, honing in on their favorite dishes. I've never had a meal at Jinja that didn't satisfy. The drink menu... More

Was visiting family in New Mexico, and instead of cooking a big Christmas Eve dinner, decided to treat ourselves and go out. I'd been here once before on a prior visit years ago (before leaving TA reviews) and readily agreed to go back when it was suggested. We were able to get a reservation the night before, and were very... More

We went with a couple who go there occasionally and it was as good as they said. The Aviator martinis are really interesting and delicious. We got calmari and Bonsai shrimp appetizers that were perfectly prepared and light, delicious. Only complaint is that we were half-way through the appetizers before the drinks arrived. Entrees arrived quickly and were delicious too.... More

Jinja Bar and Grill is often our first choice for a spontaneous meal in Santa Fe. The staff are always courteous and friendly and the food is delicious. We took friends there this evening, and they thought the food even better than they remembered. The coconut soup is superb. The citrus avocado tempura is amazing. My rice paper salmon was... More

Have dined here several times for Lunch and Dinner. Very popular with the local community. Asian fusion, and not your typical neighborhood Chinese restaurant. Food quality is excellent. Many appetizers and entrees come in "small" and "large" portions. For example, my wife and I split the small Lettuce Wrap portion that included 4 nice sized stuffed segments. Her Halibut and...

Visit the Santa Fe Jinja a few times a year and always impressed! Brought the whole family visiting for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. Had reservations for 7:00 but because of the number we had to wait a little while as the hostess said a better, more comfortable table would be available shortly. They served us appetizers for FREE... More

I came to Jinja for the first time on Friday, November 21st around 7pm for some quick appetizers and yummy drinks. The hostess informed us it would be about a ten minute wait, so we sat. Roughly ten minutes had gone by and we'd seen several other tables seated. I myself work in this industry, so I understand a busy... More

Excellent service, and every dish was perfect. A great place for a moderately priced, but tasty evening mel in our hometown. Love the flexible hours given our crazy schedules. Love the Asian Fusion choices, as well as terrific staples (pot stickers). Wine list is short, but the options have not disappointed. We are there regularly and have never been disappointed.
