Geisha Gardens was a tea room, gift shop and bonsai garden operated by our dear friends Hal and Jinny Jenkins. Visitors came from all over the world to stroll the gardens and enjoy the restaurant which offered such delights as "The Glorious Geisha Burger" and "The Chunky China Dog" as well as authentic Japanese foods cooked on hibachis. The gardens were gorgeous with huge lanterns, pools, Japanese style bridges, a gentle stream and if you were lucky you would see the occasional peacock! (see the photos below) Hal, Jinny and Geisha Gardens are gone now but their spirit lives on in our memories and the stories we share. Joey, Brenda and several of the current Joey's staff are happy to have called them friends. If you'd like to read an article we found about Geisha Gardens in the Miami News from 1965, just click here.
