“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

In the mood for Chinese and we made reservations after reading some reviews on Yelp. We were seated immediately when we arrived and sat at a table on the patio. We had a nice bottle of wine with dinner. My friend and I each ordered a chicken dish of some kind (can't remember) but both were delicious. The servings were generous, but not like most Chinese places that just pile way too much food. The sauces were light and well seasoned. There was a mix up with our dinners going to the table behind us, but that got fixed quickly with a few good humored comments from those at the table that almost got our order "that looks very good maybe we should have order that." Worth the price and the service was very nice, friendly and quick. A nice place

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

There is a statement that says,"you cannot rush perfection". It was certainly true in the case at the Jade Inn. There were no set menus, so we found all six of us, delving into the the world of food on offer. While we waited a bit longer than normal for our meal,(who cares, no rush in Port), when it came, it was undoubtedly, the best Chinese meal we have ever had. Lemon chicken, crispy beef, chow mien, vegetables, duck, beef in black bean sauce, a seafood dish, pancake rolls, sesame toast, and a pork dish with various others. It was a delight.

“Good food, reasonably priced and very efficient service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We just wandered in off the street with our 2 children and were so glad we did. The staff were very accommodating and the food was fresh, well cooked and not drenched in oil like some other Chinese restaurants. I would definitely head back to Jade Inn.

“Expensive in comparison to superior restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Food was enjoyable enough and service was pretty good however paying just on $100 for entree and main for 2 is the most expensive Chinese I've had.
