Wasn't too impressed with the Tin Jo special I ordered. The pakoras were good. Prices somewhat expensive.

I recommend the steamed wonton as a must entrée if you go to Tin Jo. The dishes are delicious but I have to give this one a standout place in the menu.

First the restaurant itself is impressive, check out the Garden room. Service was great, and the food was great, very tasty, but I wouldn't call it authentic. It's also a bit more expensive for a mid-priced restaurant in San Jose, two of us with a...More

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
