I’ve been a costumer all my life, but today’s experience was so unpleasant I might not come back. The food was ok, but the costumer service was dreadful. Food took at least an hour to get to the table, and after asking for the check...More

I felt a little apprehensive at first glance of the restaurant and the menu because it offers eclectic food from various Asian countries (Japan, China, India, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian). As a Thai, of course I tried Thai food. Surprise, it was not bad at all....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
