Go to for Lunch during a busy work week

My husband and I eat here pretty regularly. We do not go because it is authentic Asian, we go because its good, fresh and fast. I love that they created a menu that you can order a full or half size of entrees. I love the Coconut Malay soup and we get either the Shaking Beef or the Mongolian Beef... read more

I feel so comfortable writing this review because it is based on a full year of regular visits. Jinja is our first choice for a cozy comfortable evening, whether on a "date" with my husband or inviting friends to share in the awesome food. It is consistently the best in town, from the servers who take time to learn your... More

Oh Jinja. You have made me so very sad tonight. I usually love this place. But tonight was awful. The service has never been so bad. I was dining with a friend. First drink took forever and I had to remind the bartender about it (we were at the bar). I hadn't been here in quite some time and was... More

Jolene, I want to take a moment to let you know that Sad and Starving are not words I would ever want someone to use to describe our establishment, and I apologize that your recent experience was not up to par with what you have come to expect from Jinja. I would really like the opportunity to rectify your experience... More

We can NOT stop eating at this wonderful Asian joint. My son loves the sweet &aspire Chicken (10 yo). Daughter loves edamame and tempura style chicken. Egg Rolls are heavenly. Get the hot sauce tray to accompany. I enjoy the Moo Shu pork, the leaf wrapped fish dishes, and the Singapore Noodles. Wife links most noodle dishes. This is THE... More

Our Asian preference eaters prevailed over the ones that wanted Mexican and all were pleased. The large portions could have been bigger but our 6 left full after 4 skated dishes. Don't spend your money on the miso soup, it's bland.

Had lunch with my husband, we both got the hand cut noodles with tofu. I thought it was very bland and ordinary. Just peppers, onions, noodles, huge chunks of tofu and lots of thin sauce. We took half the tofu home & I made a nice meal by adding broccoli, mushrooms, lots of ginger & garlic. They were very good... More

For any lovers of Asian food, a quick glance at the menu would set the alarm bells ringing. It's mercifully published on their web site - so you don't actually need to visit any of their restaurants. However, a friend had given us a glowing recommendation, so we were really honour bound to go. Amazingly, the execution was even worse... More

My sweetie, Margo, and I just ate at what we believe is the most delicious Asian restaurant here in Santa Fe. Of course, we've always loved Thai cuisine.I give Jinja Bar & Bistro 5 stars! It was recommended by one of our University of Santa Monica classmates, and we're so that glad she did!
