Had an excellent dinner. Good staff. Excellent food. Found the majority of the food to be American. The atmosphere was slightly Indian and comfortable. The booths made for a quiet atmosphere even though we ate in the bar area.

We had a delicious dinner here while we were on a long weekend in Santa Fe. It was our favorite restaurant of the weekend! My hubby had the Moo shu chicken and I had the Tom Yum soup (more Tom Kah style) and we shared the small potstickers. He also had a Mai Tai and enjoyed that too. The service... More

Had good experience at Jinja in the past but stopped in for a New Years meal and the service was far from good and the food was just OK and the building was freezing so have to eat with our coats on.

I ordered from them the other day-potstickers, Singapore Noodles, and Red Beef. The potstickers and beef were good, especially the beef-the sauce was delightful, like a spicy gravy, and the meat was tender. The pot-stickers were fine. But, the Singapore noodles were, well, absolutely awful, except for the beef that was a small part of the dih. The noodles were... More

Lunch today and the service was good, we liked our waiter. This was a pleasant change as we have not enjoyed the staff in the past at the Santa Fe location. The good was good as always, why we keep coming back.

I've been for lunch as well as cocktails. The food is a change from most Santa Fe restaurants. The Asian Caesar with grilled shrimp is good but there's way too much pickled ginger. I really like the pad Thai; less greasy than some in town. The mixed cocktails are fun but lack finess.

We have been here several times but food and drinks are always good and it is consistent Service is great at the bar. Both Alex and Jason (bartenders) are great and make sure you are taken care of. This is a place you must try.

Polonisian food with a twist. Well prepared, attentive service, good value. Located in a strip mall but worth the effort.
