There are a lot of healthier choices here. The side sautéed greens was delicious and the highlight. The veg green curry was full of veg, but not very tasty. I ordered 4/5 spice and there was no heat at all. Also needed salt and richness, but I did omit the fish sauce. The waiter forgot our edamame starter, but brought... More

This is definitely the best oriental food restaurant we have ever found in San Jose. They offer Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Thai menu items, and all those that we tried were excellent. Service was good, as was the white linen atmosphere and oriental decor. It was not terribly expensive, with dinner for 4, sans booze, running to about $80.

I moved to Costa Rica last year, and the food was literally the best I've ever had since then! We ordered Tom Yam Tale to share, and they served in 2 bowls even though we didn't ask. It was very kind of them. The soup had all kinds of seafood and was very delicious. I had Fish Pad Krapao, and... More

We found this restaurant online. We enjoyed the food. The service was EXCELLENT. Romeo was our waiter, he was very kind and spoke very good English as we can't speak a word of spanish. After having lunch, we didn't feel for dessert as we were very full. But Romeo bought over a sorbet ice cream on the house he said... More

We had reservations for dinner and were originally assigned to a table in an outdoor courtyard area of the restaurant. It was an unseasonably cool evening, so the host quickly rearranged things to seat us at a warmer inside table. The food and drink offerings were extensive and outlined with photos on a laminated menu of the type that is... More

I’m glad to hear your positive comments about your meal experience at Tin Jo and at the same time I’m shocked to hear about the sweet peppers (that aren't suppose to be there) poking out of your salad! I did my investigations and found out that your salad doesn't have red pepper as an ingredient... the two pieces you took... More

It's no wonder the local citizens have made this one of their favorite restaurants. That's why you should have a reservation if you plan on enjoying the food at Tin Jo. Everything ordered was wonderful. My wife had the Steamed Chicken with Vegetables. She thought the chicken was very good, but there was something about the vegetables that made them... More

Found this place on trip advisor, looked like it was going to be tiny from the outside. Turned out to be the best place we ate in San José. There are a few different rooms to choose from as to where you eat, each is themed to the different cuisines on the menu. We ate in the garden room which... More

Description
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
