Took take out this time

This was the first time we took food out from Jade. We ate inside and it was fantastic. The take out was great. We will be reordering.

Not worth $10 let alone the $45 we paid (two entrees, 2 beers). We asked why food was taking so long (place was not busy on this Saturday night) and waiter said, "Very busy. Many takeout orders." The "chef's special" lo mein in peanut sauce was so salty it was inedible. We said so to the waiter, pointing to the... More

We called for reservations, and were told that they were not necessary. When we arrived the restaurant was 2/3 full, but only a few tables had food. We sat down and waited and watched one server for the entire restaurant. When we asked one of the two "busboys", he said that the other server was on his way back from... More

There's nothing really wrong with the food here, though I don't find it too memorable. It seems oriented to a less sophisticated palate, but perhaps we just ordered the wrong dishes. For great Chinese food, I prefer to eat in Chinatown or in Uptown, where the more authentic places are. I also like a beer with my Chinese food, and... More

This place may have the best shrimp dish with fresh vegetables that I have had in the area. You will pay more to eat here but you will not be disappointed.

Wow, Jade is permanently off my list! I tried to place an order tonight. When I told them I wanted to use my gift certificates, the person taking the order put me on hold for 5 minutes and then came back and said I could only use one. I asked to talk to the manager. The "owner" came on and... More

Mediocre at best. Save your money. The food is over priced and not the best in the area. The staff is rude. If you want Chinese food go to the city.

Made the mistake of going to Jade last month. I have never encountered such rude and uncaring servers or managers. The food was mediocre at best - the chicken was rubbery, the rice wasn't cooked properly and the appetizers were cold. The worst though was that it was all covered in grease! For a place that claims to be healthy,... More
