“Cockroaches”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Jin Jin 98 was shut down by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation April 8 after failing a health inspection.
According to the DBPR report, more than 100 dead cockroaches were found in the restaurant, with most concentrated around the waitress station, the fryer and freezer.
Additionally, 36 live cockroaches were also observed in the restaurant.
Other violations that were reported included having no proof of parasite destruction for the cold smoked salmon, eggs kept at room temperature, food that had been prepared and stored for more than 24 hours that was not properly dated and serving tilapia marked as red snapper.
Jin Jin 98 was reopened April 9 after passing its follow-up inspection, although the restaurant was again marked for the smoked salmon and red snapper violations, the report said.

“Great overall”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We just stopped in for lunch today and were pleasantly surprised to find such a gem of a restaurant. The restaurant is small, quiet and nicely designed. I ordered the chicken with cashew nuts lunch special for $5.95 which was amazingly good and my husband ordered the Teryakki chicken with rice for the same price which he said was good but a smaller portion. I also ordered a cup of the hot and sour soup and it was delicious. We definitely plan to go back in the near future. This restaurant is on the north side of Hwy 98 in a small shopping center. Almost across the hwy from the IHOP.

The food was fantastic and the owner was so nice. You must try this place in Destin. You will love the food. The owner took such good care of me that I can not thank them enough. You will not be disappointed.

“Great order in”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We were exhausted after a long day at the beach and didn't want to go out. This place is not gourmet but it was really good, quick and easy. We will definitely order from them again. :-)
