Another good review for this Asian restaurant. We ordered Thai, Indian and Chinese dishes from the extensive menu and they were all delicious. Staff were very welcoming and efficient. Highly recommended.

If you never had good Chinese or Thai food in Bay area, this is a decent choice. Otherwise, below average at high tourist prices

The restaurant is deceptively large considering the entrance. The different areas are decorated for specific countries, very nicely done. The food is reasonably authentic. Enjoyed our lunch.

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
