“Not so great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

I have eaten here off and on for the past thirty years and find the food on the bland side. It is really cheap and may be home style, but my wife cooks it at home a lot better and with a lot less grease. The service is very good but the atmosphere is on the non-existent side. I find the Far East, across the street, a much better Chinese restaurant and one that I would recommend to my friends.

“OK food, good deals, poor atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

If you want some pretty good authentic Cantonese style of Chinese food, don't care about the atmosphere, and want a good deal, this is the place! Try the $22 family meal which is a pretty good deal.

“Always tasteful and consistently great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2008

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.
