A mix of Chinese, Indian, and Korean dishes. The decor with its artwork and intimate dining areas are beautiful, especially the courtyard. The service and food/portion size was excellent. For those vegaterians out there, many options! I had the Korean Chopche dish.

This is a highly acclaimed Asian restaurant. Certainly it was good. For me the food was a bit too much adjusted to local preferences. Still good though.

It's a great restaurant. Three or four separate rooms. With Advance notice they can surely accommodate a group.

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
