Overall Jin Wah is a great place to enjoy some Asian food in a casual and relaxed atmosphere with plenty of tables and space. They are also open later then most restaurants in Beaverton. While most of the staff speaks little English and can sometimes come across as a bit abrupt during rush hours or on the phone while taking to go orders, they are friendly and efficient. The owner is a familiar face on the floor as he chats with his regulars and checks to make sure you are enjoying everything. I would definitely say they are a bit more attentive to their regular customers so becoming a familiar face will only enhance your experience. Now, the food. Talk about inconsistent. The only thing really consistent about the food is that it tends to be a bit oily, so ask for no oil. (If you ask for no oil, you will still have oil in the dishes; unless you ask for steamed.) However, I still gave Jin Wah high marks because the dishes that are good are positively delicious- plus the dim sum at lunch is delectable. With dishes you haven't ordered before, either split with a friend to see if you like them or try the lunch menu for smaller portions and lower prices. It is best to build a core list of dishes that are consistently delicious, then experiment with different dishes here and there. I would like to recommend a few dishes my boyfriend and I enjoy. The salad rolls are far superior to any we have ever had and are extraordinarily delicious. They are light and refreshing, yet can fill you up. The wonton soup is amazing--rich chicken broth with delicious and plentiful wontons. P_tstickers are very good, but what you expect from a good Asian restaurant. The #702, Noodle Soup, is flavorful and filling, but order the EGG NOODLES, NOT the rice noodles. The Scallop and Eggplant Clayp_t is divine--one of my favorites.
Pros: variety, dim sum at luch, salad rolls, parking, casual atmosphere, inviting, space,
Cons: inconsistant dishes, oily, heavy
