From the reviews you can see that the Jade Fountain is not on the tourist map. Shame. The standard of service is superb with owner Michael touring the tables to have a friendly relaxed chat with diners. The restaurant is spacious, simple and doesn't try to overwhelm with Chinoiserie.

Have been to the Jade Fountain 4 times and cannot recommend it highly enough. The restaurant is spacious and the staff are really helpful. The last time I visited with friends, we had the taster menu and it was fantastic value for money. You have a wide choice of starters, followed by duck pancakes and then an even wider choice...

Nice place with plenty of space and serves great food and was busy even on a Sunday evening and the staff were friendly and reasonably priced.

Have now been to the Jade Fountain over 8 times, we often go there for family birthday or celebration as the food is incredible! We do the taster menu, which is effectively all you can eat for £18 per head (£16 on a Sunday) but instead of the normal Chinese where the selection is limited and all half cold, the... More

My parents have been raving about this place for some time so we joined them to see what the fuss was about. And yep, it's very good. Service is excellent, food is excellent. Would have liked to have table clothes and a little better furniture to make you feel like your in a Chinese restaurant, but then I'm not there... More

This Chinese now offer the all you can eat buffet, but with a difference, you can have anything off the menu, and it's all cooked fresh. The salt and pepper squid us very nice, and the ribs, I enjoyed the starters so much we had more, duck was lovely, and by the time got to main meal I was a... More

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

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

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
