Buffet isn't 're stocked, Sat at the table waiting for certain foods to be cooked. I have a sea food allergy and sometimes I have been and there are prawns in the food so I was very limited

Very popular due to all you can eat buffet. We ate al a carte. The crispy spring rolls were excellent, as were the sweet and sour king prawns and green muscles in schezuan sauce. Service was good.

We like Chinese food and Jade Fountain means we get the chance to sample other types of Chinese food that we normally wouldn't try. The lunch menu offers the best value, along with the evening happy hour. However, the grand Buffett is nice but is expensive, however the selection is far greater.

Downstairs is an all-you-can-eat buffet. Narrow choice, overcooked, bland but cheap Upstairs is a la carte. Quiet, OK food. Not as cheap. Not one to make a detour for.

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).

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.
