“Blasted TV”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were really looking forward to this new restaurant to open. Last week we had a chance to visit it and went in enthusiastically. It is a small place and we sat down to look over the menu. We couldn't concentrate as there was a huge television screen that filled the one wall and was just blaring noise. The place is very small with nothing to dampen the acoustics in the one room. We got up and told them we would not be back because of the television.

No idea what the food is like as we left without ordering and will not return. I have no idea why more and more restaurants feel that instead of creating an atmosphere for a nice dining experience they need to have monster television sets. It is bad enough when there are small screens with the sound off and the text running on them but Jin's was just too obnoxious and in your face.

Fortunately, we strolled a few blocks and ate at the Mee Heng Low Noodle shop and had a delightful experience there.
