party of 14 on a busy Friday evening. pre-arranged Menu was faultless. Although really busy you did not have to shout to be heard. staff attentive friendly and quick. overall a good evening enjoyed by all.

this is a favorite restaurant but it gets so busy its hard work! We met friends there and the place was packed, with no carpets or tablecloths the noise was unbearable and unbelievable. The waitress could not hear what we were trying to order and we could not hear her, we got an additional type of starters we had not... More

Visited this Restaurant on many occasions but always as a couple. This time we had a table for 7 and we had this decorated along with balloons for a birthday celebration. Mike was fantastic and looked after us with an amazing selection of dishes which allowed us all to sample food that we would not normally order. They let us... More

Michael (owner/manager) has been a fixture here for many years, left for a while (during which standards dropped). He's back - quality of food is excellent, top ups from an extensive fixed price menu for free. Really good night out.

Service was wonderful, with the Owner Mike suggesting items to order. We ordered a wide selection of starters which were all... More

A thank you to this Chinese restaurant for being able to leave it without the feeling that the food was edible but not memorable, that it had a twice-cooked flavour and that the waiters/waitresses did not give the impression that there was something else they would rather be doing. None of these "sins" are evident in the Jade Fountain, quite... More

Have eaten here many times in the past and it has always been excellent but we ate there last week and they have now introduced a fixed price menu that enables you to eat as much as you want for £16 in the week and £18 at weekends. This is superb value and means that you can have your favourite... More
