Great Chinese restaurant

The food quality is excellent, very tasty and the service really good. Taster menu is really good too. The only bad point would be how busy the place gets and hence the noise level in the restaurant

The 'all you can eat' style menu is a hit. Cooked fresh each time, you can order from almost the entire menu of starters and main courses here. Perfect for those that like to try new things. Recommend the pork dumplings and ribs in particular. Service is good and the restaurant is quite large, so there should always be space... More

I have reviewed The Jade twice before and can honestly say the food is always excellent here. The menu is varied and my only 'moan' is that they don't do chicken wings. Tonight was a party of 25 and I thought that they looked after us well and that there was always plenty of food. A couple of issue with... More

I found this restaurant initially confusing. There have been rave reviews and its reputation in and around Cambridge is high. But the reality was disappointing. Ok its cheap, but they now offer a 'buffet' menu which largely consists of 6 or 7 different sauces with the same types of meat in each one. So its like a buffet but you... More

We tried this restaurant because my wife is Celiac and they have a gluten free menu. Normally a gluten free menu has maybe up to 10 items, at Jade Fountain there are nearly 30 dishes so plenty of choice. The quality of the food is excellent, we have been twice and on both occasions we really enjoyed the food. The... More

We stay at Cambridge city so this is some distance but by far the BEST chinese food we've had. A lot of Chinese restaurants serve food thats too salty or too oily (or both). The food here is just nice. Most chinese restaurants have average to bad service. Service here was excellent and genuine. Would definitely recommend it. We've been... More

We have often buy takeaway food from The Jade Fountain because the food is so good and there is a good choice of quorn dishes for vegetarians. We went for my birthday on Good Friday and we were a big group of 13 (adults and young adults). We were made to feel special and relaxed from the moment we walked... More

I've been coming here for years and years with friends and family. They now do a set price all-you-can-eat system that is incredible value. Their Peking duck is phenomenal. The owner is lovely. I've never had a bad meal.

Another excellent meal at the Jade. Will be coming back very soon for the special all in menu. Lots of small pieces you can taste. Everything hot and cooked with love. Keep up the great food, Michael.
