Jinbeh keeps the focus on family at Lewisville, Frisco and Las Colinas restaurants

Closing the doors for about a month and a half was a heartbreaking experience for the owner of Jinbeh, a restaurant with more than 30 years of history in the North Texas area.

“Every restaurant that’s been around for a long time can tell you they’ve hit lows, and they’ve hit highs, but they’ll  find ways to hang in there,” Jinbeh owner Aya Matsuda said. “This one was a monster—it was a beast—because we were forced to close our doors.”
