About Us

About Jino's

We first opened our doors way back in 2003. Since then our philosophy has remained exactly the same; freshly cooked, authentic Thai food, served the way it should be – simple and without the fuss! Made the way it is in Street Cafe’s all over Thailand, in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

Often we are asked why we named our little Cafe Jino’s? Quite simply, Malinee’s maiden name is Jino!

 

Who We Are

Family owned and run by Malinee, Mark, Nathan, Jasmine and our lovely team. In 1993 Chef Malinee moved from her home in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, to Leeds. Where after 10 years working in Thai restaurants she created Jino’s Thai Cafe in 2003. A close family friend, Mark joined the business in 2018 to help make Jinos what it is today. Malinee’s Children, Nathan and Jasmine, worked in Jino’s throughout their childhood. After both working in prestigious restaurants around the world, Nathan as Chef & Jasmine as FOH, have returned to Jino’s in 2021.
