Went for lunch after hearing it was a good option for vegetarians. We weren't disappointed! We were greeted promptly and asked if we wanted Spanish or English menus, were seated in the garden room, which is beautiful, and our waiter, Roma, was extremely friendly and helpful. Had three very good vegetarian meals - the Indian vegetable curry was particularly good.... More

We came for a birthday and had a phenomenal meal! From the second we walked in we got true VIP treatment. The apps-we had chicken egg rolls, samosas, pork steamed dumplings-that were delicious. The ginger margarita was outstanding, really!! Dinner was equally delicious-chicken and beef krapao was savory with crispy vegetables and super tender meat. Crispy orange chicken and pad... More

Due to its downtown proximity and good Trip Advisor reviews, I gave it a try. I was served a complimentary starter of pickles and fried won ton chips. I had a shrimp won ton soup which was a little bland and under seasoned for my taste, but that was followed by an Indian style vegetable curry which was quite spicy.... More

The restaurant itself is so amazing that I almost forgot that I was there to eat. It has a spacious and natural feel to it that needs to be experienced to be appreciated. The menu is outstanding in terms of variety and alternatives....plenty here for those with a gluten intolerance and for vegetarians. I loved the little touch of suggesting... More

This is a restaurant that I will visit like sometime in a while. To me is expensive and even thought they have a very large menu, from different cultures, is hard to understand and waiters are kind of bored to give you the best suggestion based on your taste. So, visit them and let them know your experience. I believe... More

A special place for those who have never been to these distant lands, a fabulous setting, but what counts is the quality of the dishes served, an elaborate menu representing the Asian world, what a beautiful inspiration. We chose 3 dishes, one from China, one from India and one from Thailand, the orange chicken was crispy cooked to perfection, but... More

The dishes are tasteful and the variety of dishes is quite good. The ornaments and the place are modest but somehow classy

Beautiful restaurant, fine service, OK food. We visited on a Sunday for lunch. The restaurant was packed, the atmosphere lively. The service was welcoming and quick. The menu covers a large part of East Asia, but seems to be a bit 'hit or miss'. Our Thai curry and Beef Teriyaki were not great. But the place itself is nice.

Our mission is to serve delicious, healthy food in an environment that is conducive to sharing and caring. We believe that food should nourish us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our dishes are inspired from Asian countries: China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Thailand. We have an extensive vegetarian and vegan menu as well as a gluten free menu. Our Asian themed rooms gather together all the art work we have collected as well as those created by closed friends and frequent diners. Tin Jo is our third child and we are very involved owners. We love to interact with you, our customers and it is our sincere wish that your visit to our restaurant satisfies not only your senses but also uplifts your spirit. With Gratitude,Maria Hon and Robert Faulstich
