Native New Mexicans know about this fine local restaurant chain. There are 3 currently, two in Albuquerque and one in Santa Fe. I like the ribs but have had the lettuce wraps and the Ahi Tuna. Always good. Had Kim as a wait person. It was her first week and she was everything a wait person could be - knowlegeable, personable and she added to the enjoyment of the evening.

Very cool - fusion type restaurant blending New Mexican/Asian decor. They have indoor and outdoor seating and the restaurant is really big. I like that they're open late (most places serve dinner only till 9pm - a little early for us). We had the avocado tempura - amazing with great dipping sauce and the ahi tempura roll - also very yummy with great accompanying dipping sauce. We also ordered two main dishes to share - the rice paper wrapped halibut and the chili noodles. They were nice enough to split the dishes in the kitchen for us. I was underwhelmed by both the dishes - they were okay - nothing great. Both came with some mango-type salsa/relish and a cucumber salad - I found those to be tastier than the actual dishes. Did appreciate that they serve brown rice. Overall, it was a good experience but not sure I would go back since there are so many other amazing restaurants in ABQ.

The food is always very good but the portions could be larger. A little bit on the expensive side but worth it if you care primarily about quality as opposed to quantity. Is often crowded so it doesn't hurt to call. Considered somewhat of an Asian Fusion restaurant, I am partial to the Prawns. Always first class service and a very pleasant staff.

We ate at Jinja on Sevilla Dr. in West Albuquerque. It was a special occasion and they treated us royally. The appetizers were wonderful; especially the lettuce wraps. Everyone, even our grandson, really liked the food. They do have a happy hour from 3 to 6 during the week, too.
