As locals we refer to this as “the good Chinese place”. Yes the lady who takes orders is brisk, but I come from a German family and am used this type of bluntness. Food is pretty standard American Chinese food. Generally pretty quick service. Best...crab Rangoon in town.More

I eat here frequently. I'm legitimately friendly with the woman that "Barks "What you want?!"" at everyone. It's hilarious to see people get flustered by someone being blunt. I think they really want the pandering American "Would you like me to wipe your mouth?" after...every bite service. Personally, I don't care if she acts like my mother for 3 minutes while I order or a surly, hard working woman. China Jade has tables to eat in but honestly, take it home with you. They're busy and all the foot traffic makes it hard to enjoy a meal quietly. The food is good but it's not "Holy crap I'm gonna live in their basement just to smell their grease trap in the morning!" good. It's also not really expensive. It's fast, there's plenty, and it's cheap. If you're looking for service and a smile I'm sure there's two dozen places to eat. If you're prepared to answer "WHAT YOU WANT?!" and eat, it's hard to beat.More

As you as you walk in the door, you get barked at for your order — no time to look at the faded pictures of food above the counter nor read the printed menu. Some food is just average, but some food looks like no...effort was taken. I ordered a noodle dish with a thick sauce. The noodles sat on shredded lettuce (no mixing) and the sauce was glopped on top of the noodles. Again, it was not mixed. As I ate in (as opposed to take out) which was a mistake, I tried to mix in the thick sauce which was nearly impossible given the ultra cheap plastic utensils. The few customers that came during lunch were treated in the same unhappy and unpleasant manner.More

I stopped in Saranac Lake as the prices are better than touristy Lake Placid. This place does a brisk take out business. I was the only one eating in. The couple running this place are Chinese. The husband cooks while the wife takes orders, payments,...and deep fries the egg rolls. Their menu (on wall or hand-held) has a big variety of dishes available. The wife's English is difficult to understand, but manageable. Food was freshly cooked, had a large portion, and tasted great.More

Went to the restaurant while traveling. Toilet was literally the kitchen. Service very rude and the food was pig swill. The lady at the counter barked orders at us. I have had Chinese food at many different restaurants, but this was by far the worst.

This is some of the best Chinese food I've had since moving here a year ago. No msg and always fresh and hot.

We were in town for just 1 night so we decided to run in to China Jade for some quick Chinese food. I always think that when in doubt, refer to the restaurant's Specials Menu, so my husband & I ordered Chicken Pad Thai to...go - listed as a Special. There was a long wait but it was a Thursday & only 2 staff on so that's understandable. However, the food we took back to our room was mostly noodles, some veggies/chicken/egg & had very little flavor. There was a lot of it but such a let down. Next time I'm in Saranac Lake we will not bother going here. Pretty disappointing.More

They were not friendly and the food was horrible. The pad thai was cold, the dumplings meat just tasted bad.
