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!

I have used this restaurant for several years.The food and service are excellent.I have some friends who regularly travel from London to have dinner there. The menu is varied and the prices are very good. Try the taster menu.

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

I've eaten takeaway food from the Jade Fountain a few times now, but the most recent will be the last after yet another bland, tasteless meal. I've mixed up what I've ordered, but it hasn't got any better. Having just had the chilli chicken with garlic, I couldn't taste any chilli, nor garlic, and it didn't really look like real... More

I've been visiting this restaurant for many months for take away. It has an extensive and delicious gluten free menu with 17 starters and 40+ main dishes. The Beijing spare ribs with fruity sauce are amazing. If you need gluten free then you must visit here.

Family of four booked the restaurant for 6pm. We felt rushed as soon as we sat down. Constantly being asked by the staff can we take your order before we had a chance to all sit down!! We kept asking for some time! We had been before so we knew what we liked but as we were out with family... More
