“Excellent Pan-Asian Food”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We have been going to Jina Yoo's for more than five years now. A couple of years ago we were a little unhappy with the consistency of the food prep. Fortunately, the problem seems to have gone away and we have been very satisfies on our recent visits. The menu is creative, and the Pan Asian food served here is comparable to what we have eaten in some really good restaurants in big cities on the East Coast. Very good sushi, great cocktails, the Drunken Salmon, Jina’s Balls, the B.A.P.T. and an unusual bibimbap are some of the noteworthy items. Great atmosphere for quiet dining, and expect a table-side visit from the friendly restaurateur.

“Nice Preparation-Good Experience”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Dinned on New Years Eve and was impressed. All the dishes were presented well and the flavors were all that I expected and more. We will go back for sure.

“Best sushi in Columbia - always a treat!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is now a must-have dinner when I visit Columbia.
It is well worth the effort to find this slightly-out-of-the-way place.
Lovely restaurant, great service, and sushi rolls that are amazing.
The crab rangoons are a must.
Monkey Goes Nuts (we always end up ordering ANOTHER one of these!), Alaskan Volcano, and Tiger in the Jungle were our choices this time -- all wonderful.
The pear midori martini is great as well.

“Good sushi, good service, lively atmosphere.”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I visited with my college-student daughter and her friend, and we had a wonderful late-night dinner.
The crab rangoons were wonderful.
We tried the roll with lobster -- it was really good, as was the roll topped with melted pepper jack cheese.
But the hands down winner was the Monkey Goes Nuts roll -- we like it so much the first time, that we ordered a second.
The specialty cocktail made with the pear sake was great.
Our server was friendly and able to answer all of our questions, and Jina's visits to our table were a delight.
We will be back!!

“Jus okay”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Nice place and the service was good but the sushi was overpriced and just average. No real flavor to it, we had the two specialty rolls at $14 a pop and just were not impressed at all. Save yourself and don't go here if you're looking for good sushi.
