We enjoyed our last dinner on our recent trip at Tin Jo. It was great for a celebration and not overpriced. Two vegetarians in our group appreciated the meatless options. We had the homemade pakora for starter. I recommend it!

Authentic and delicious food! The stuff were super professional and kind. The menu is awesome, a combination of Thai, Indian, Japanese and more, there's a section of vegetarian dishes and a separate gluten free menu. We absolutely enjoyed everything we've ordered.

As a vegan, sometimes it can be difficult to find a restaurant that understands the difference between vegan and vegetarian. Explaining that in a language that is not native can be frustrating, but TinJo made it easy. Not only did our waiter speak English, he...More

Great interior design with nice art. The menu is like a recipe book which we would have ordered entirely if it was possible. Very kind staff. Maybe slightly americanized in their way of waiting. Very kind tough. The food was accessible for a large public...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
