Pleasantly surprised to find such well prepared and well presented Asian food in a shopping center, especially in a town whose focus is New Mexican. Do not hesitate to try anything on the eclectic menu. I adored the Vietnamese coffee.

Cute, comfortable place with an extensive asian themed menu. Recommended by my Korean sister in law who really misses her asian food in this town where Mexican dominates. Hubby and I shared as asian chicken salad and calamari. Fresh salad, not bagged. I had to be talked into the calamari with some lime kind of dipping sauce if I remember.... More

Stopped in Jinja for a late lunch; really enjoyed our meals (lettuce wraps, green curry & small halibut) which were colorfully plated, fresh-tasting and flavorful. Not cheap, but quite good.

We love this place and have never been disappointed! After sitting at a restaurant nearby for 15 or 20 minutes without so much as water (someone did ask if we had been waited on, we said no but that didn't seem to make any difference!), we decided to head over to Jinja...good decision! Had lettuce wraps, the Sweet and Sour... More

Nice atmosphere, not casual feeling at all, but they didn't seem to blink at our exceptionally casual attire. Food was good, not "Excellent" IMO. Kids plate options were great and came with a drink and a scoop of tasty ice cream. But the Vietnamese coffee gelato shouldn't be missed.

There are times when you just need a break from tortillas and green chile… when not even pizza or French/Italian flavors will do. And for times like that—for a perfect palate cleanser—we often go to Jinja. Today was one of those days. We met another couple and wound up ordering four different entrees… shaking beef, kung pao chicken, teriyaki chicken,... More

Great food, comfortable atmosphere, and free potstickers for signing up online. Not sure how long they will have or honor this offer, but it was very nice for our group of five. The atmosphere was comfortable in that there was nice background music and we were able to visit with on another. The service was very good. The food was... More

A very good restaurant, Asian fare with southwest flair. We especially enjoyed the southwest spring rolls and shrimp. A good bar too

Waitress & greeter were very professional. Both did a good job & were pleasant. My wife ordered Pad Thai and I ordered Sweet & Sour Chicken recommended by the waitress. Both came out timely and were nice and hot. Food was very tasty. S&S Chicken was not too sweet as with many Asian restaurants. Pleasantly surprised in the middle of... More
