Looked on TripAdvisor, found this restaurant with high reviews and thought we would try it. Trust me the reviews are spot on, the food came fast and was very fresh. Had sweet and sour soup, it was excellent. The main meal was also good. And lots of it, will be taking some home. Will visit again when in town.

I've never eaten at the Jade garden on Johnson St. I normally go to the Jade Garden on Nappanee Street in Elkhart, and I LOVE it there. The staff is always super nice, and they have some really great waiters. I totally recommend this place.

My family ate here Friday night. It was great. The portions were plenty, the food was delicious, and the service was great. We will be eating here more often.

Jade Garden is probably the best Chinese restaurant in town. When I walked in, the managers were so friendly and energetic. We had very good service, and the food was amazing. The environment is soothing, and friendly, and it's a very nice place. Also it is affordable, not very expensive at all. They also serve sushi which is delicious. I... More

The Jade Garden is at 1308 S. Nappanee (aka) SR 19. A great place to dine if you are lucky to get one of the 2 waiters. They hae on waitress that is a sour puss so we always ask for one of the male waiters. Also the owners are very hospitable. The menu is great and you get more... More

When we pulled up to the building we had some reservations about whether or not we would eat there. But the staff was friendly and service was quick. We ordered sesame chicken and it was some of the best sesame chicken I've ever eaten. They even added broccoli at no extra charge. I highly recommend this place!!

I heard so much about this little place, just driving past and seeing the "voted # 1" signs in bright red makes you think you must give it a try. I went to the one on Johnson St. I had trouble figuring out how to get inside as it's an oddly situated building and the door was hard to open,... More

I will never go there again. Wanted to try it because of the "great" reviews. I ordered sesame chicken and white rice and my daughter ordered shrimp fried rice. Well, it did not only looked bad it tasted horrible. I only took one taste and left everything there. Between my daughter and I we tried to eat her plate, but... More

First, let me point out that there are TWO locations for Jade Garden. While I think you will be pleased with food from either one, we have found on several occasions that the food we get from the location on Nappanee Street seems "fresher" than the location on Johnson Street. There is nothing wrong with the Johnson Street food, just... More
