“A great fusion restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we're glad we went.

The decor is interesting with an Asian them with interesting art throughout.

Because the restaurant was busy, we were seated in an adjacent room. We were the only ones there, so it took some time for the waitress to find us and her service wasn't very attentive. She wasn't overly helpful or pleasant either.

The food came quickly and was very good. We had Singapore Seafood and Spicy Port Fried Rice.

The food was hot and well-prepared. It was priced reasonably.

I'd definitely return but cross my fingers for a better server.

“Decent food---fair pricing-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

If you are looking for a quick meal, from a wide assortment on the menu, then this is the place. Waitstaff was very friendly, and we could not believe the wide assortment of food that was offered.

“Raw shrimp and scallops, indifferent manager”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We went to the restaurant based on the recommendation of the hotel staff. My order of shrimp and scallops was delivered with the shrimp and scallops both badly undercooked and cold. The waitress returned the order to the kitchen and the second time around the meal was very good.

The manager obviously has not attended either management or personality schools and his attitude reflected that lack. He wandered past all the tables without making eye contact or exhibiting any "Glad to see you" mannerisms. As we were leaving the restaurant, he was at the cash register picking his teeth as he looked over my spouse's shoulder. Absolutely no concept of propriety. His demeanor spoiled the evening for us.

Our waitress was the saving grace of the evening.

“flavorful and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had dinner last night in this terrific resturant. The ambiance was relaxed, pleasant and efficient. The food was fresh, well made and amazing flavors. The menu was good for the adventurous and the bland members of our party. The price was reasonable for good food and good service. We have been here several times when visiting in the area. We definitely recommend Jae's.

“one of the finest lunches ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Fine food--we had the special lunch "boxes" which came with a soup (unbelievably great hot 'n sour!) AND brown rice (on request).
Both the Korean pork and chicken were great. We plan to route ourselves to come back while we're in the region....
