Buffet style eats for Americans who like fried foods

The Jade is a restaurant geared for hungry people who want to get everything they can for a low price. The quality of the food is average for fried Americanized Chinese foods. There is very little authenticity on the menu, but most of those in attendance didn't seem to mind. I did not enjoy the... read more

Boy has this place gone downhill. Service was terrible - asked for the gluten free menu when drink orders were taken and never saw it. Saw the waitress only to deliver drinks and the bill. Asked for hot mustard twice and finally went and got it from someone else. Food was bland, tasteless and mostly cold not to mention the... More

If you like seafood, then the Jade is priced for your taste. For those of us who don't then it is over priced. It would be nice if they segregated the seafood from the rest of the buffet and charged different prices based on what you wanted. If you like seafood then you will probably like the food here. We...

the service was great and the food very tasty. The server explained each menu choice and also let us change our order when we didn't like our selection.

The Oriental Jade has been in business for about 25 years, at a prime location next to Bangor's multiplex cinemas. They are still in business, which should be a positive, but that may due to their humongous buffet or to the size of the portions served - a paradise for amateurs of doggy bags. Otherwise bland, uninspired, even mediocre food.

I can't believe I went here ( my senior citizen parents took me ). I hate doing bad reviews, but this calls for a TripAdvisor intervention. I do not usually frequent buffets, but this was probably one of the worst I've seen. The only possible way Oriental Jade gets a pass here is the timing of our visit. We walked... More

My family & I went in for lunch. We went in right after it open at 11am and we thought great the buffet would be nice hot & fresh right? WRONG. My husband said they probably put it out at 10-10:30 he was probably right. For almost $10.00 for a lunch buffet it certain wasn't worth it. It had mostly... More

we always stopped for the buffet when on our way from New Brunswick. There always was good selection, but it certainly has a lot less selection of seafood. if you like salad bar, then this is expanded, but if you like pork or seafood, then the selection has shrunk.
