Just back from a lovely night out in Waterford city. Started our night out at the Jade Palace Chinese restaurant. When we arrived there was a large family at a table so the service was a little slow. We were brought water and prawn crackers so we were content to sit a while. When our waitress arrived and we ordered... More

I revisited the Jade Place on September 23 on a recent trip back home to Ireland. Disappointed is not the word. This used to be the ultimate Chinese restaurant back in the day but boy, how things have changed. My friend and I were ignored by a server ( a blonde Irish lady in her 50s) when we entered as...

A good little Chinese restaurant right in the middle of the city, close to several good pubs. Food is pretty good and variety as to be expected for any Chinese restaurant. We have been there a good few times and they are never pushy to move you out. Food always feels fresh cooked which is great.

Went here on a recommendation and boy was that person a fool. The decor is like a pub from the 80s and the table we sat at was quite sticky. The service was ok nothing memorable but the food was basic and bland. The rice and chips where reheated so massive negative mark there and the chicken was like rubber.... More

I (years ago) had bad (& ONLY) curry experience. Due to the friendly waitresses recommendation, I was willing to try the king prawn/chicken curry. SO TASTY! The chef even came out to ensure I was happy with it (I was - it was half gone)! So glad we gave this place a shot! My hubby also enjoyed his prawn chow... More

We were in this restaurant today for lunch but were very disappointed with the service and the food. The service was slow and not very polite. The food was reheated to the extent that the rice was dry and hard. Will not not go there again.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday afternoon of the Spraoi festival. Very disappointing from start to finish. Firstly we sat in the restaurant with no staff anywhere in sight. We should have known better and left... after 5 minutes two members of staff seemed come in from outside and even then we waited another 5 minutes before we were asked... More

Usually when I visit a town or city I try my best to visit at least one Chinese or Asian restaurant but when I visited Waterford I discovered that there were not many options available to me and I also discovered that many restaurants that attracted my attention closed at or did not take orders later than 9pm. I asked... More

We were advised to come to Jade Palace for something to eat on a Saturday night, no times on the door we arrived at five past nine to a near empty restaurant asked if they were still serving got a very blunt NO and had a back turned to us. Rude was an understatement

We had high expectations based on past visits, but were not prepared for the tasteless and bland fare we were served. Badly in need of refurbishment, with threadbare carpets on view. Pleasant staff could not save the night. Never again !
