A small lovely restaurant that serves fusion Asian food. Everything is good with great service and presentations. Definitely the best place to take visitors.

I didn't even look at the menu! I told jina what flavors and textures I like, abd she came back with a plate of mouth watering delights. She is an amazing woman, and I love this restaraunt!

We shared lunch today at Jina Yoo's and thought we were at Roy's in Hawaii, west coast, and Vegas! But we were here in the middle of Missouri and the experience totally took us by surprise. Columbia, you are so fortunate to have this quality asian infusion!
We decided to let Jina order a selection of her favorites...3 appetizers, and one roll. The scallops over stir fry veggies was amazing...cooked perfectly. The lobster spring rolls with mango sauce...excellent. Jina's crunchy roll with scallops...excellent.
Graduates of Mizzou, class of 72, we had no idea our visit here this time would yield such an epicurean adventure. Goose hunting this week with our last night here on Saturday...and we'll be back at Jina Yoo's before we leave for home. Great experience.

I eat in way too many restaurants worldwide. I eat out probably over 200 timer per year. Jina's is one of the best asian fusion restaurants I know. However, the problem for her is her location: She is in the suburbs of Columbia, Missouri. So that is why an Appleby's or Chili's ends up being rated higher. It's a travesty. The other problem is that many patrons wouldn't know asian fusion if it fell on them, so they can't understand why there is no sweet and sour pork and chow mein. That is why the reviews will not do her justice. But if you want to try truly creative asian cuisine at a reasonable price, this is the place. The atmosphere is warm, romantic, dark. Not suitable for small kids.

Sushi is top rate. Fresh and reasonable in price. Soup of the day is always a masterpiece. Zuchini pancakes are outstanding, ribs are to die for. etc. etc. etc. You simply can't go wrong. In one meal you can try small dishes from Japan, Korea, Thailand, etc. etc. All true to their origins and yet all with Jina's creative flair.

You want a satisfying, memorable meal tonight? Go there. Then tell others.
