Jina was a fantastic host and the food was outstanding. We were warned about a potential wait for our food but this was not the case for us. Would highly recommend the Indian set menu and the vegan chocolate cake!

Had brown bread toast with the hummus, guacamole, cucumber tomato salad and avocado salad. Very simple food with not much flavor, but the prices are cheap. We also had a slice of the vegan carrot cake which was a little uncooked and didn't really taste...More

Ate falafels here for lunch. Huge portion, fresh ingredients and great presentation. Decent price for quality of food. Be patient with your order, it can take a little longer than you'd expect.

Jina's is named after the chef Mr. Jinasena. This is hands down the best Vegan restaurant in the area. My family and I had dinner here - 2 days in a row. Even though we went on week day nights, the place is packed. Be...More
