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.

We had dinner there and really loved it. The place is nicely decorated, the menu quite varied, the service very attentive and the prices reasonable. I had a nice oriental salad with chicken and my wife a shrimp dinner. Both were excellent and the bill was about $35.00... Great price for a quality dinner for two.

We visited after a recommendation from our B+B host when we left Trinidad, Co. Well, we weren't disappointed! The food was great - the starters could be shared between two (we had one each!) but the mains are a good size for one. Good to have a break from burgers and Mexican....

Jinja is a regular go-to place for us, both to eat in, usually with another couple, and sometimes to take out. This time we had drinks and shared four appetizers with friends. Potstickers and lettuce wraps were terrific as always. Calamari and Vietnamese spring rolls also very nice. Everyone was pleased; and noone had room for a main course or... More

Tried this restaurant tonight, and it was terrific. We are from Manhattan, and have at least 12 great Thai restaurants within a ten minute walk of our apartment. We were delighted to discover Jinja, with terrific food, friendly staff, nice decor. It's in a shopping mall, but don't be dissuaded by it's somewhat suburban exterior. The interior has a nice...

Dining at Jinja is an exotic experience with beautiful atmosphere and great Pan Asian Cuisine. The decor is reminiscent of a TIki Bar and restaurant. The service is great and so is the food. My favorite thing there is the Citrus Avocado Tempura (appetizer), and the Malay Coconut Soup. I have been dining there since it opened, and when in... More

Eight of us went for lunch, and it was delicious. I had the rice paper salmon, small size. Note: you get a choice of a small size or a large size on many of the plates. The small size was plenty. The salmon was perfect, and the jasmine rice was very flavorful. The menu offers a lot of choices and... More
