After a ton of rice and beans an asian style cuisine in an asian style restaurant is just what you are looking for...besides this all dishes are really delicious (I think I have never eaten the same meal in about 20 visits...except the Saketini as an aperitivo ;-D!

“lots of asian cuisines to choose from”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

great fresh tasty food. Had the salt and pepper squid for starters and it just melted in the mouth. Sea treasures for main and lots of fish pieces, shrimps and calamari with vegetables on a hot plate with rice.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I'm a vegan, and they have plenty of good tasting and healthy dishes. They use organic produce as long as they can get it. All the items in the vegetarian menu are marked if the contain eggs or other animal products. They also serve meat and fish, so it's s good place to go if you are travelling with someone who are sceptical of going to a vegetarian restaurant.

They make exellent ice teas. My favourite was the maracuya (passion fruit) and jasmine.

“Yum”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

TIn Jo is a wonderful restaurant. The food is simply prepared and fresh as can be. The staff was courteous and welcoming. I would definitely visit this restaurant again, the next time I am in the area. It is a little off the beaten path and a bit hard to find, but if you are an explorer, you will have no trouble.
