If you want good authentic Chinese food at a reasonable price, check this place out. But understand going in that the atmosphere is average at best (restroom is below average). For food, try the beef stew, oxtail, Singapore noodles, fish with black bean sauce and onions, and the honey glazed walnut prawns.

Jade Fountain Cafe is a favorite of our family. The dishes are prepared properly and flavorfully seasoned. We have been dining at this restaurant for the last 10 years and would highly recommend newcomers to town as well as local residents looking for a great restaurant looking for Traditional Chinese entrees.
