Stopped at Jinja to have drinks and appetizers with friends. The appetizer selection was Asian fusion and the choices were extensive. We shared five plates among the four of us and were full and content. Flavors were bright and stimulating. Service was prompt and efficient. Will return.

As I sat in Jinja, I searched for nice things to say.... let's see: the hostess was sweet. The bar seemed like it had " meet up" potential. The booth we sat in was pleasant and the water was served in a clean glass. If I had only stopped at the water, this visit while not memorable, would be adequate.... More

My business lunch was a positive, pleasant, enjoyable experience at a reasonable price. The service was appropriate but not overly attentive w/ a wait staff pleasant & professional. Didn't see a Manager in evidence at any time, too bad, one should take interest in their guests! Overall experience positive & this wasn't my first time. "Eat healthy my friend!"

I have eaten twice at Jinja Bar, both times at this location. It was underwhelming, and seemed not unlike other Asian food chains (PF Changs, anyone?). The food is okay. The pork in my Singapore Noodles was badly overcooked (tough, dry). I had the Chow Fun with tofu on a different occasion, and it was pretty good. The seating was... More

I never miss eating here when I'm in town. Higher end food done to perfection for me. I always get the Shaking Beef. Can't get enough. We went during happy hour but needed to sit in the bar to take advantage of it which is new from the last time we were in. Usually like to sit by the window... More

Jinja definitely is among the best restaurants in the city for Asian food. The spring rolls were fried to perfection and tasted delicious (though a bit pricey for the size and amount you get as an appetizer). The Sweet and Sour Chicken and Beef Teriyaki were also terrific. Though portions are not large, you feel full and satisfied when finished... More

Jinja continues to be my favorite Asian food restaurant. Atmosphere, great food and excellent service make this place so inviting!! Can't wait to visit again but will probably wear a jacket as I found the air conditioning to work all too well.. If you haven't eaten here, you have no idea what you're missing!!

Private booths, low lighting, mid-priced, good service. Our favorite dish is the rice paper salmon - it comes in a lunch or dinner portion. Many entrees are served with a small of portion of lightly pickled cucumbers - delicious. They have recently doubled the size of the bar if you prefer a more social meal.

My husband and I have been here a handful of times and I felt compelled to write a review after our last visit because every time we come here, the food has been consistently good. We like to sit at the bar and eat dinner and have a few drinks and the bar atmosphere is perfect. Every single thing we... More

Love this place (and the one on the West Side). Friendly bar and conversations if you want to join in. The food is always great and the specials are worth checking out. Some really interesting shrimp dishes
