We enjoyed our dinner with another couple. The booth made for a private experience where you could hear each other and the overall atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing. We had good service and had hard time making a selection from the varied menu. We started with the tempura which was a good selection for the 4 of us but would... More

When your tastebuds start to tire of green chilis and Mexican cuisine in Santa Fe, this is the place to go for a delightful change. Jinja specializes in new Asian food with a menu that has something delicious for everyone who likes Asian fare. As a "local" of over 20 years (and Senior"), I go here often. The ambience is... More

After a bit of a wait the server arrived..asked if we'd like drinks. We said sure but would like to see a drinks menu. Server "oh.... More

Hello, First I'd like to say thank you for your honest review and details about the service you received here at Jinja recently. Second, I would like to apologize for all the mishaps you experienced!

Some years ago we went to Jinja several times and got a bit tired of it. It was time to go again and with a friend. First warning, if you call for a reservation less than two hours before the time you want, you will be put on a wait list. Seems like punishment. We got there and were immediately... More

In a town that suffers from a severe lack of good Asian food, Jinja is a shining gem. This always-busy establishment has something for everyone, from the fabulous lettuce wraps to the pad Thai, to the shaking beef. The bar menu is wonderfully extensive and contains a great selection of tropical cocktails (but you can also get a great martini... More

Had an excellent dinner. Good staff. Excellent food. Found the majority of the food to be American. The atmosphere was slightly Indian and comfortable. The booths made for a quiet atmosphere even though we ate in the bar area.

We had a delicious dinner here while we were on a long weekend in Santa Fe. It was our favorite restaurant of the weekend! My hubby had the Moo shu chicken and I had the Tom Yum soup (more Tom Kah style) and we shared the small potstickers. He also had a Mai Tai and enjoyed that too. The service... More

Had good experience at Jinja in the past but stopped in for a New Years meal and the service was far from good and the food was just OK and the building was freezing so have to eat with our coats on.

I ordered from them the other day-potstickers, Singapore Noodles, and Red Beef. The potstickers and beef were good, especially the beef-the sauce was delightful, like a spicy gravy, and the meat was tender. The pot-stickers were fine. But, the Singapore noodles were, well, absolutely awful, except for the beef that was a small part of the dih. The noodles were... More
