“Jinja - a different meal for Santa Fe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

During a recent family trip to Santa Fe, we visited Jinja. I had Pad Thai and my wife had a chicken special dish. All large portions which fill us up. The atmosphere was pleasant and upscale looking. The waitress we had was super and very very friendly. We ate around 2 pm and half the place was fill.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is a sweet restaurant in a strip mall. I love everything I've eaten there. It's a little dark, but the food and drink are so good I will overlook that every time.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Jinja was one of these places that we were going regularly when we lived in Santa Fe, and that we are going every time we are back in New Mexico. Food is delicious, they have a great selection of cocktails and the atmosphere is great. It is on the pricy side, but it is definitely worth it.

“Jinja - we'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

During a recent family trip to Santa Fe, we visited Jinja. Please don't make the mistake of getting it confused - expecting more of an Oriental/Chinese buffet. Jinja was very pleasing to the palate - and everyone at our table had something different. Pad Thai, Shaking Beef, Pot Stickers, and a curry noodle dish - all very high on our list of favorites tried that day. All large portions that filled some big appetites up easily - although, we didn't have to pack any home with us either.
The atmosphere was pleasant and upscale looking. Again - great way to distinguish vs. a Chinese buffet.
The waitress we had was OK - at times slow & at times a little agitated (it seemed). I'm sure we all have "off days". The service didn't reflect negatively on the quality of the food.
As you may have read - prices are higher as well - again, different than an Oriental buffet option.
