“Good food and excellent, lightning-fast service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I'm in Biloxi on business this week, and ate at Jia last night. I had a reservation for 5:45 PM and arrived about five minutes early. I was seated immediately, and given the wine list, daily menu, and sushi menu.

I selected the "Bubble Gum" roll (Tempura Shrimp, Cream Cheese, Poached Shrimp & Eel Sauce) from the sushi menu, and the orange chicken from the daily menu. My server offered to bring the sushi as an appetizer, and I gratefully agreed. The roll was brought out in six or seven minutes, to my pleasant surprise.

Just as I was finishing my sushi, the orange chicken was brought out, and served at the perfect temperature.

I enjoyed my orange chicken (with steamed white rice) but had to decline dessert, as the portion was quite large.

Overall, I enjoyed the food, but found it slightly overpriced. The service, however, was absolutely excellent--quick and attentive.

I found the restaurant to be very quiet, which might make it a good match for a business dinner, however, this might be because I was dining so early.

Overall, I found "Jia" to be an above-average choice, and because of its convenient location (if one is staying at Beau Rivage), I could see myself eating here again on a future trip.

“Good, but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

All I had was a glass of white wine and the shrimp & avocado salad, which was very good. The entrees were too expensive & I wasn't that hungry. But, I did enjoy what I had.

“Great food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We had no trouble getting a table on a Friday night even though we had no booking. The receptionist asked if we would like to dine Hibachi style which we thought would be interesting. When we went to sit down, we realised it was Teppanyaki. Love Teppanyaki so no issue at all.
The waitress was very very helpful and when she realised we were from Australia we had a great conversation. She was very friendly. The food was really good and very good value for money.
Only downside was nothing to do with the restaurant at all. We had a guy on our table who sat during the whole meal with his iPod earplugs in. Thankfully the couple at the other end of the table were much more engaging.
Certainly recommend this restaurant, especially if you had a group of friends with you. It was fun and again great food and excellent service.

“Great place... IF you order the more elevated dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I've heard many people say that Jia is overrated, only to find out that they had some lo mien or stir fry dish.

If you go to Jia, you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you don't order the higher end dishes. The roast duckling, braised short ribs, and whole crispy snapper, for example, are fantastic. The stir fry, lo mien, and hibachi taste like any other decent place out there, so spend your casino winnings and splurge on the higher-end entrees.

As far as the Beau properties, Jia and Stalla are head to head as my favorites. I will say though, that Tien at the IP is a better asian place.

“Better than good - great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We harken from San Francisco which has great Chinese cuisine. So we were delightfully surprised to find Jia with comparable quality. We would have eaten here every night, but it's only open 3-4 nights a week.
