Tin Jo has it all; super delicious food from about five different Asian countries, very helpful and attentive staff, a great wine list and inviting décor. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and is handily located just a few blocks away from the national museum in central San Jose. I was pleasantly surprised to find such an authentically Asian place in San Jose. The menu offered lots of great choices, and plenty of options for vegetarians. Everything was so fresh and tasty. And then there was dessert! More excellent options to choose from, plus real coffee too, I was one satisfied customer.

I live at the beach in Costa Rica so when in San Jose I love Tin Jo for the best Chinese food experience.

This is my first time back in nearly 5 years, before, I'd visit as often as possible when i lived here. The ambiance, service, food and everything is top notch. The decor is amazing. I really love how all the rooms have different themes.

The service is so nice. There are menus in english and spanish and the prices correlate! lol, I have found many restaurants that do not... anyhow, the food is fresh, creative, filling, and not heavy. They make different waters infused with mint leaves, or sugar canes, or tamarindo, and all sorts of things.

We had orange chicken tonight along with other delicious things, and with all the things i've tried it was surely made with the best ingredients. The sauce was clearly home made with real orange zest, not some jarred sauce like back in the US...

If you want a great experience, go to Tin Ho!
