Looking for a late evening meal that needed to be gluten free... and we found an amazing Chinese restaurant (gluten free Chinese is a rarity). Staff were really helpful... and the food was to die for. Best Chinese ribs ever; delicious main course; vegetables and noodles lightly cooked. Will definitely be back, although it's a long way from Merseyside.

We were regulars at the Jade between 5 and 15 years ago (when it was flawless, run by Michael), but we hadn't been back for a long time until July 2016. It is much more sparsely decorated / furnished than before: wooden tables, no table cloths, quite basic inside. However, and most importantly, the food was superb, much better than... More

I have been going to the Jade Fountain for years. The food has always been excellent as has the service. I say this as someone who really appreciates good Chinese food and is very fussy having lived in Hong Kong for 7 years. There is now a fixed price menu which offers outstanding value. You really can't go wrong here!

We came here for a family meal with two young children. After an initial shakey start the waiting staff made us feel welcome. The food was average, but the table service was friendly. At the end of our meal I let my youngest get down from the table and walk a very short distance, away from any other customers, when... More
