This restaurant was 2 blocks from our hotel. Does not open until 6 pm. I loved the food and decor. The service was very good. We had a quiet room for a 9 person tour group. It was our last day together and really enjoyed...it. Our local guide Ingrid picked it out for us. She has excellent taste!!!More

Tin Jo is a most beautiful and high quality restaurant, with surprisingly tasty dishes! All seem to made at the highest level of expertise. Three visits in a row became an addiction! Stick with Chinese food dishes, and you will be pleased with the quality....Unless you absolutely love Salmon flavor would not order the Salmon, as it was a little sharp flavor wise. Hot and sour pork was so deliciously different from the US. Miso soup great too!More

We ended up being there twice, so good was the food. And the personnel was very friendly, and attending. It's definitely worth a visit.

In spite of having a reservation, we waited quite a while to be seated as the front desk person had disappeared. Finally got our table and had amazing spring rolls - absolutely top notch so we were really looking forward to our mains. My husband...ordered the sweet and sour pork and I had stirfried shrimp and vegetables. My dinner was very good but my husband's was inedible. The pork was mainly gristle and had no taste. He left 95% of it. On the plus side, our server was great and very pleasant. So my advice would be to steer clear of the pork and stick to seafood.More

What a shame - had the vegetable green curry which had no seasoning whatsoever and was like Vegetables in watery coconut milk. Asked If they could do anything , they can back with some hot sauce - that was it .... 2 stars because the...staff were nice and it could have been just a bad day in the kitchen.More

This is a must go restaurant in your life. The food is delicious, the place is lovely, there is a parking lot near the restaurant if you need it. They offer asiatic food. They close in the afternoon, around 3 to 5, something like that....You can check this in Facebook.More

The service was amazing! Everyone was very nice and friendly. The taste of the food was not as good as I’m used to in this restaurant. They served the food cold and when we asked to be reheated it came a little different than the...first time. It will be a while before I come back again.More

Great food and excellent service. We have Orange Chicken. Mongolian Beef and Fish Pad Krapao and we were delighted. Taste was very excellent even the white rice and the fried rice with onion and eggs. The waitress Roma treated us with outstanding customers so as...all the other staff members. Definitely a must go restaurant in San JoseMore
