“Excellent Pan-Asian Food for a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Good Pan-Asian restaurant in the DeVargas Shopping Center in Santa Fe. the atmosphere was "Asian" and was very peaceful and restful. It was recommended by the front desk of our hotel, and since we needed a break from Northern Mexican food. Lovely atmosphere and a very diverse menu. We had the Pad Thai, the sesame ribs and the steak and shrimp combo plate and each one was very good with more than ample portions. Good service and food for being strip mall restaurant. Our hotel people told us that the restaurant is owned by Gene Hackman and that he has two other Jinjas under his ownership, one of which is in ABQ. If I were a local and not on vacation, I would definitely go again!

“Consistent Americanized Asian Cuisine”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

It is a good safe bet for groups of diverse people to meet.The food is not at all authentic but is good to very good Americanized Asian Cuisine. The service is equally good. The bar is really good and provides excellent service. Parking is easy which is nice!

“Different...”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

An interesting Asian menu. Lovely ambiance. Good food. A bit pricey for what you get but once in a while you might like something a little upscale.

“Excellent and different Chinese food.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Not your average chinese restaurant. In particular, the orange peel tofu was unique and very good. The service was also excellent.
