I’m sorry I just cannot recommend this restaurant from the hot and sour soup to the cashew chicken it was horrible and it doesn’t even look like chicken it’s fatty leg meat dark and gnarly! Nothing tasted fresh.

After living in South Orange county for over two years, I hadn't found a Chinese restaurant that I would call good - until coming in to Jade China. They have excellent service, and food quality to match. This is where we will be going for...the foreseeable future.More

Ordered the cashew chicken lunch special. Some of the chicken pieces tasted strange, as in not fresh. Some also had gristle, and were not edible. I left most of the chicken on the plate uneaten. The vegetables seemed to be fine. Egg flower soup was...fine as well. Service was courteous and prompt. Unfortunately though, the food was a disappointment.More

Jade has decent Chinese food, but the service is very slow. Their quality is ok and not the best, but if you are in the mood for decent Chinese food and you don´t mind waiting, then check out Jade.

We first experienced the wonderful and luscious food when having food delivered to our home. Three times we ordered and each time the quality was excellent. Often times when eating Chinese or Asian food - the spices all taste the same as if they used...the same cooking oil for all dishes. Not the case at Jade China! So many choices - whether you like pork, beef, chicken or fish or just vegetables you have so many options. We also wondered into their restaurant for lunch . Their lunch deals are great and the portions large enough to ask for a take home bag! Atmosphere is very nice in the restaurant and parking is a breeze!More

In a strip mall and from the outside looks small. But inside it is large and very pretty. The dinner was so delicious. I ordered shrimp it was so good. The sweet and sour soup and egg roll were great. They serve you a large...glass of wine . I would definitely go back.More

We ordered takeout and the food was very good. The staff were efficient and helpful. Location somewhat difficult to find as it is in a large plaza area.

We were really looking forward to a good new dining experience at Jade China. One of the four of us had tried it and highly recommended it. Unfortunately, she couldn't join us today, so the three of us went ahead and tried it. The restaurant...is very dark and tucked into a mini-mall. The menu has a lot of choices and a large set of lunch combos at a reasonable price. But you get what you pay for. None of the dishes were outstanding. The egg drop soup was okay, the egg roll was fine. The Mongolian beef was hidden under a mountain of brown onions, not green ones. The Lemon Chicken was a bit dry. The Sweet and sour Chicken was probably the best of the lot. Our waiter was friendly, but not attentive. One of our group had a chipped glass. When she called his attention to it, he took it away, but he did not replace it and he never refreshed the other two waters. At the end of the meal, our half empty soup bowls were still on the table. He had not cleared them away. We don't know what happened from the time our friend went and when we patronized the restaurant. But none of us plan to return.More

We had family visiting from out of town and wasn't sure where to go and we were also bringing a 4 month old infant, so our choices were limited! We decided on Jade China. We ordered a variety of food to share and all was...excellent. Having the baby was not a problem as they had a table with ample space for a stroller. Everything worked out great! We'll be back!More

We gave this restaurant a great review seven months ago and have bee returning to eat there about twice a month. We noticed the service slipping the last few visits and we chalked it up to just having a bad day. We usually go in...the late afternoon when there is almost no one in the restaurant. We were the only diners our last visit although while we ate they got 1 take out order. They seated us and gave us menus OK but then no one came to wait on us. We were really thirsty and wanted some liquid. After at least 10 minutes I finally had to summon the wait staff. There were 4 of them and three of them were eating while the other was on their cell phone. I almost had to force them to come to our table to wait on us. The meal was ultimately served in courses haphazardly and they were inattentive. I had to roust them a second time and noticed they moved from eating to playing a Chinese tile board game. Their focus was on that game not service. We still like the food but the service is bad enough to keep us away. We would like to talk to the owner and tell him what is going on as the wait staff needs training. This is why so many restaurants do not make it is because of bad service.More

We ordered online and picked up. Order was ready & waiting for us when we arrived 15 minutes later. My husband liked the egg rolls, but I didn't, they are the thin type and I prefer the fat type with more veggies & stuff inside....Also had the Hunan lamb which is sliced/chopped in a brown sauce and served over a nice big bed fresh sautéed spinach! We both enjoyed this tasty dish and it was a huge portion! The only negatives about the lamb was it had too much fat left on it and the texture was a bit over-marinated. The Sautéed Three Delight, which is shrimp, beef & chicken with assorted fresh veggies, was good. Very generous with the cookies. The almond cookies were good, the fortune cookies were rubbery. Has a nice ambiance inside and was super clean. Looking forward to when they complete their “Gallery” web-page with pics of each dish. Happy to have found this new place. Will be trying more items soon. Hoping they will continue to improve with feedback.More

I was pleased to find this establishment that serves really tasty Chinese cuisine that doesn't cover everything in a gooey sauce. Everything we ordered was delicious and had a lot of fresh vegetables that weren't overcooked, a trend sadly common these days. Although I could...have used a little more spice, the food was better than most, especially the chain joints. The best part is they deliver, which will definitely be a plus for us in the future.More
