Food was good but the tables were not placed to provide social distance. A group was seared next to us and I could reach back and tap the other group on the shoulder. Other tables were seated the same way.

I have been going in there for 30 years because the food was hot and tasty and not just the typical chopped slop on the plate in brown sauce. The sisters were always friendly. Then in the last several years something happened. Food comes out...reheated, dry. I used to love soy sauce chicken but now it tastes like mushy boiled in a steamer, no flavor with just soy sauce poured over it. Used to be flavored with 5 spice. I think they use the microwave to dry things out and heat them up. Chicken and duck used to be browned and juicy. Now white, boiled and mushy. BBQ pork used to be juicy and crisp on the outside. The place is always empty anymore. Something must have happened. SadMore

We stop here every time we visit Denver. The barbecued pork is sold by the pound, and is delicious. We buy several pounds and freeze some. They have mouth watering, freshly made buns with a barbecued pork filling. The dim sum in the restaurant is...quite good.More

I happened to order take out on some baked pork buns. Been going to this restaurant for many years. While waiting, I noticed that food was being handled by the same hands that was just used wiping down the countertops...hands not being washed. Disgusting. Minutes...after leaving the restaurant my wife noticed that all of the baked pork buns were COLD! I couldn't drive back by then with all the traffic and home was about 1 1/2 hour drive. I called the owner and she started yelling at me and started speaking in Chinese/English. I explained to her that I was a loyal customer for over 15 years...and why she is serving me cold baked pork buns. She stated that the pork buns are cooked at 9:30 in the morning. Then I said, I bought these at 5pm! I explained to her that the health dept. would not approve this, then she recanted...no it's actually 12pm...I said, "STILL!" that's not acceptable! Not going back there again...just lost a loyal customer!!More

My husband and I wanted dumplings. I said to try the china jade in the far eat center on Federal and Alameda . We were surprised at the wonderful food. My husband said the sweet and sour Pork is the best he has ever eaten...anywhere! We travel a lot so that is a compliment for sure!I love the dumplings! We love going here. TRY IT!More

My wife and I had a quick lunch here. We ordered some Chinese traditional Tofu and eggplant with pork inside. All of them are tasty and delicious. And the place is close to many Chinese stores, which is very convenient as our first stop in...Denver.More

I have fond memories of the China Jade. A friend and I used to go there for dim-sum. Many years later I returned and it was nostalgic, but not nearly as good as it used to be. The entire restaurant was empty when I arrived...and I had to wave down a vacuuming waitress to be seated. It was three hours before closing and the entire time I was there the two staff members were cleaning like it was a punishment: sprays and vacuuming, and dust rags, and buckets of water. It was off putting to feel like I was in the middle of two deranged people manically Spring cleaning. The dumpling soup was bland as paste. It used to have such great flavor. The egg rolls were thin and lacking in any distinctive flavor. They were just pure crunch. The potstickers were delicious- fried just perfectly and full of flavor. Overall, I was bummed at the service and the obvious down turn of food quality.More

i have tried almost all available dim sum restaurants in Denver area and this place is definitely the best one. As a Cantonese I know what is authentic and what's not. Also the most important issue for us is they do not use MSG; not...like the other restaurants nearby their dishes are having too much of those non healthy additives. even though this place is not fancy but I still highly recommend it for everyone. Also should mentioned is that they have the best roast ducks in town.More

Usually I don't review restaurants but I saw another review titled "Better than Empress" and I strongly disagree. We had eaten at China Jade years ago before we discovered Empress and came back to China Jade only because Empress was closed for remodeling. We go...for lunch and get 2 combination plates and 2 dim sum. The dim sum, deep fried shrimp balls and steamed dumplings were excellent. But the combination plates did not compare. First, both the egg drop soup and wonton soup lacked much flavor. It was served with steamed rice compared to fried rice. And the egg rolls did not compare to the best egg rolls we ever had at Empress. the entrees, sweet and sour pork and beef with green peppers were very good and the sauce on the beef was excellent. Overall, we rate this only average.More

I've been here for take-out. Their hanging roast meats are classic Hong Kong style in flavor. Cost is very reasonable. 1/2 a roast duck is under $10buck. They can butcher it for you or you can take it home 1/2 whole, which is what I...prefer. Then I can bone it and use the carcass for soup stock. The dim sum is quality overall. Not a fan of their shrimp dumpling though. The rice skin is a bit chewy and I like the filling to be chopped with bamboo shoots. The star item here would be the baked char siu bao. A total winner. Large doughy chewy sugar glazed madness stuffed with a filling of roasted red pork and yummy sauce. A must try~ if you are lucky and they are just out of the oven, it's a wow! Singapore rice noodles are spicy, curry flavored and totally addictive. Try it! You'll love your choices.More
