Good food, not so good service

The food at Crystal Jade is very good. The restaurant is non-descript and in a mall but the food belies the pedestrian surroundings. The restaurant has a wide array of authentic dishes and a good dim sum. The Peking Duck is outstanding. Unfortunately, the good food is not matched by the service... read more

Chinez had been our favorite here in Irvine for good Chinese food over 25 years, and it was really good, but then they left. Sam Woo is a good choice but it's pretty expensive and their BBQ take-out next door is also good but the menu is limited. We have tried most of the highly rated Chinese restaurants in Irvine...

Let me preface this review by saying that I walked into the restaurant and ordered take-out. It was crowded and it seemed like there were a lot of regular patrons. I had to wait 45 minutes for my food! That seemed like a really long time to wait. That being said. The food was great! We had a spicy shrimp... More

I agree with a lot of the yelp and TA opinions. This place can be much better. Certain dishes are really good, and appear less greasy than other nearby chinese restarants. However, the service is really bad. Always rushed, even if there is only a few tables. The food is served out of order. Even if you ask, the soup... More

We went on a Friday night and the restaruant was nearly empty. Even so, it took 15 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order and then even longer for the drinks to arrive. The exotic choices looked appealing but tasted like Kool Aid. Maybe the bottle of vodka or rum was near by, but not in the drinks.... More

Come here for Dim sum during lunch hours. Pretty good selection. Shrimp har gow is my favorite (with chives is very good also). Very nice place.

We visit this restaurant once every few months in the past 3 years. (We actually prefer to order takeout). The service is OK, price is not cheap but reasonable for Irvine. The restaurant has a small menu for a restaurant of this style and lacks the authentic dishes (it usually only has one type of Chinese vegetables), however, the seasoning... More

My girlfriend found a Groupon for this restaurant that was a really good deal so we went there for an opportunity to try a new restaurant. We were delighted with the decor inside, presentation of the food, sauces, and flavoring, The menu had many selections from House Specials that had me, a die hard Chinese food addict from Brooklyn NY,...

We had a bad feeling right when we walked in and during the 15 minute wait for the drinks we ordered. We went for their dim sum, which you order from a sushi-like checklist, rather than the fun carts that circle the room. Maybe the lack of customers warrented the new system? The tea (my favorite part of dim sum)... More
