“Nobody Does Chinese Better”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

An example for all chinese restaurants to follow,,, A truly wonderful place, wonderful food, First Class Restaurant Experience… Service, Food, Excellent,,, A Smooth Running Machine, one of the best in SanJose and if a special occasion, even better,,, Interior Decoration is Magnificent but the food preparation and taste factor is far superior than most…. Make a special effort to visit Tin Ho...

“Great Atmosphere, Great Experience”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

One of the first places I dined in San Jose and was happily satisfied. Very intimate and ecclectic decor...great for big groups. The menu is huge and full of lots of yummy choices from all around Asia. I had the pad thai which was good, but I think I'll go for one of their meat dishes next time! Manager was very nice!

The food is excellent as well as the service. We were in San Jose for a week and ate at Tin Jo twice. The food and choices are that good.
