6 of us went to the Jade Fountain last night and as always the food was delicious. We went for the all you can eat menu which was great value and there are hardly any dishes which aren't included. The starters were amazing, so good we had the save ones twice! Followed by crispy duck and really we should have... More

Based on excellent reviews, we went to the restaurant once and were well impressed with the service and the quality of the food, therefore expected the takeaway to rise to the same standards. Unfortunately, they seem to have a completely separate kitchen for takeaway, as the spring rolls were burnt, and the rice noodles with prawns completely ruined! Someone forgot... More

Another visit at lunch time, was another great success. Great hot food, quick service and all at a reasonable price. Well done Mike, back to the best in town. This time we took four friends who agreed with us that the food was delicious, the service quick and attentive, but not over bearing, and the overall experience something they would... More

This restaurant has been serving the local community for a very long time. It is nicely decorated, provides good service and is very reasonably priced. Week days are quieter, weekends can get busy with parties. There is a nice bar area with seating and the takeaways are excellent. This a very reliable restaurant but not fine dining.

We opted to go for the taster menu which is such good value and unlike other eat as much as you like places the food is brought to you as you order it. We started with some soup which was the fist time we had tried it and both the chicken and sweetcorn and hot and sour soup was lovely.... More

I attempted to visit the Jade Fountain this evening with my daughter and disabled husband who has complex acute digestion problems. Due to his condition he wanted to only have a main course - which he would not have been able to finish - and my daughter and I were looking forward to trying the 'taster menu'. When I enquired...

Urgh. We arrived - with 2 dozen hens in full swing - and waited an age for even a simple drinks order, which was wrong. The food was passable, oily, and tbh for the price I will go back to the Mayflower for a takeout next time.

Prompted by my parents raving about their meal we succumbed and ordered from here to break up the monotony of curry ;) Having lived in Shelford recently we did this with some trepidation as the Chinese there is ... variable ... and the Indian superb! We really had nothing to worry about. The food was really tasty, prepared quickly and... More

We come so often to The Jade as we're lucky enough to live 2 mins away. Amazing food, superb hospitality and unbelievable prices! Highly recommended and suggest booking in advance for the weekend as this local gem just very busy due to their fantastic reputation.
