This was probably one of the best meals I have ever had. The cuisine was excellent, along with efficient and courteous service. Situated in a village one wouldn't expect this type of quality experience. Highly recommended

I had dinner here now twice. The food is just amazing! On both occasions we opted for the taster menu - eat as much as you can from the menu. The garlic and chilli calamari is superb. In all honesty everything on the menu that we tried was great. Mike the owner and his staff is so friendly and accommodating.... More

It is not the most amazing place ever, especially due to the rather 'cantine-like' feel, but the service is extremely attentive, the food is tasty, healthy and delicious, and the service is very quick and reliable. It's not the fine-dining place, but the great local restaurant for a safe and delicious meal. I recommend it highly, but not for a... More

We have just had a wonderful meal at the Jade Fountain, Sawston. It was a Saturday lunch time so not many people in the restaurant, the service was fast and the food hot and delicious. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone, but it does get noisy and packed at peak times, only because of the great food.

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.
