Very tasty (sometimes) plenty of selection But missed the chocolate fountain. One bad point is £2 for orange and tap water is shocking.

We visited the upstairs A La Carte section of the restaurant; don't be put off by the lack of customers (most people go for the buffet). I ordered the vegetarian lettuce wraps as a starter (huge portion) and the four of us agreed that it is one of the best dishes we have had in Barrow. The other food and... More

Sub standard buffet with zero authentic flavours and the feeling that it been microwaved before being dumped under hot plates. Only redeeming feature was the hot and sour soup. How the place survives is a mystery.

I love the Jade Fountain. I've only tried the buffet, there's also a waiter service section upstairs during the evening, but it was fantastic. There's plenty of choice for vegetarians from starter through to desert, the spicey veggie soup is just great!! I've been at lunchtime & evening, both times are equally as good, justice price is slightly different. It's... More

Absolute awful meal, food wasn't hot and much of the food was like eating boot leather. When I complained I was told that after I had complained about the soup being cold they tested the temperature of all food. I certainly didn't see anyone test it. We won't be going again and wouldn't recommend anyone else to go.

Food, service and atmosphere is really nice and enjoyable. But I am not sure it is worth the price. We got the early bird time:5:30-6:30 and I thought that was the full evening price. Otherwise no complaints.

Went for a casual birthday meal during the week. Was very quiet inside. Food is ok for the money. All was hot etc, and there was plenty of choice. The place is looking really really tired though.Tables that are chipped, wallpaper peeling off. It is in desperate need of a refurb. Not sure it is somewhere you would particularly want... More

Visited the jade fountain with a group of friends for a friends birthday, service was shocking! Food was being taken from under our noses, buffet cleared away before we had finished our first plate, desserts dried up (not putting fresh out, as they were closing around us) they were mopping around our feet and staff seem to stare you out...
