“Open on Sundays when most things are not.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food here is great and also varied. It ranges from Indian to Chinese and every dish I've tried has been amazing! also, it is open on Sunday evenings when most local restaurants are not. Tin Jo is a little on the more expensive side, but trust me, its worth it.

“Great asian food, Good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel when we asked about a good Thai or Asian restaurant. This restaurant did not disappoint us! I had Pad Thai which was excellent (including rice noodles that satisfied my gluten free diet). My wife had curry which was also very good. Such a variety of Asian foods that one could eat here many times without repeating a meal. Service was very good and the price was reasonable for the quality of food and service received. I highly recommend this restaurant!

“very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were searching on foot for this restaurant and it was a bit hard to find. The locals kept telling us down 3 blocks, around the corner, etc... a spanish speaking man called it the "best". We actually sat down in another Chinese restaurant and then realized it couldn't be the same restaurant that we had read about on trip advisor. So we spoke with our waitress and she took us outside and walked us down the street pointing us in the right direction. Finally, after working up an appetite, we arrived to find that the restaurant was packed. We were seated promptly, food and service were great and John the manager was quite personable and entertaining.
