The Jade Inn was spotless and heaving, with not a spare table, so we were grateful we had booked. Enjoyed the light banter with the Chinese girl, who seemed to run the place. Enjoyed the meal - I had black bean chicken Chop Suey, husband had Sizzling King prawns with satay sauce. We were starving as we had to wait... More

Polite and friendly service, lively atmosphere and very good food. I had Schezuan king prawns with rice, excellent portion size and totally authentic flavours. Maybe a little overpriced but definitely still worth a visit.

Jade Inn is one place we go to a number if times when in Port Douglas. The food is always good and the staff are friendly as is the atmosphere. Bookings are advisable, some nights many people are turned away, no tables!

The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't outstanding either, especially for the price paid. I felt the food could have been found in any food court across Australia. Between two, we spent about $70 for dinner. The service started off really well, but then slowed down really quickly and we were only one out of two tables seated in the... More

Lisa was our waiter and was beyond impressed with her customer service! She was so polite and could not speak more highly of the food! Eager to try, we ordered the deep fried boneless duck with chilli plum sauce, special fried rice, lemon chicken and the black bean steak. It was the best Chinese I've ever tasted. The duck was...

Eat here three times and can not fault quality service and taste. Do try. They have a very wide range of dishes available. We tried six over three nights and loved them all

We love Chinese cuisine so tend to have this quite often. The food at the Jade Inn was nice but by far not the best we have had at the price they charged. The place was jam packed and we actually felt like we were sitting on top of everyone else. Service was ok but you could see the waitress... More

We went to the Jade Inn on the first night of our stay in Port Douglas and overall it was a really good meal. We got a table outside because none were available inside and our order taken promptly. The only negative for the night then became apparent, we waited for our meals for around 45 minutes which wasn't too... More

We had a reservation with a request for an outside table for 7 pm. We arrived on time to find no table available. I don't think they considered our request for an outside table as every table was taken. We had to wait quite a long time for someone to finish their meal and even then, they were in no... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Port Douglas. On both occasions the food was good. It is what I would call standard Australian Chinese fare. The staff were helpful and friendly. On the second occasion they were very busy and our food did take a very long time to come (45 mins between entree and main), but it... More
