Pleasant

We are so glad Michael is back, as we've been going for years (decades) and it was so disappointing to discover the dip in quality while he was absent. We went on a Sunday lunchtime recently for my daughter's birthday, and had the usual high standard meal with one exception - the battered prawn... read 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.

We love the Jade Fountain. It is always good, always friendly and always excellent value. A good number of Chinese folks frequent it, which says it all really.

Fantastic meal and amazing service. Food was fresh and plentiful and a good price. The staff were very helpful and understanding towards my mobility issues. I can honestly say that I have never felt so comfortable in a restaurant. Would highly recommend to anybody. One of the best chinese meals I have ever had.

Booked well in advance. Well worth the wait. Quick and efficient. This restaurant never fails. If you are thinking of having a Chinese, there would be nowhere as good. Nothing is missed. Dirty plates and glasses are cleared quickly. Orders taken quickly. Everything arrives just as quick. The food arrives hot and is stunning. Don't hesitate to go to this... More
