I use to come here a lot. The food is normally good. I normally like to order stuff such as the stewed pork hot pot and salt baked squid which are actually my two favorites here. The one time I decided to bring my friends who happened to be Caucasian, they wanted to become rude. The moment I go ahead... More

Vast menu. Locals eat here. The last time I ate here was 7 years ago. The food comes out pretty fast and the service was adequate to good. The drinking water glasses left something to be desired, but overall a pretty good restaurant.

We went here with an old friend whom we have known since we were living in Hong Kong 30 years ago. She suggested this restaurant since it is one of the few remaining Cantonese restaurants in Chinatown. We ordered 3 dishes- fried tofu with 3 mushrooms, pork and pineapple, and the spicy stir-fried eggplant- with side dishes of white rice.... More

To be honest I am not an expert in Chinese cuisine. My wife and I picked Jade Harbor by walking through China Town and looking for a restaurant that had a lot of Chinese customers. Jade Harbor qualified. Most tables are large and populated by Chinese families. The food and atmosphere are exactly what I have experienced when I have... More

I'm sorry for all the people who had a bad dining experience at Jade Harbor! Ours was an overall excellent experience! We had reservations, since we occupied 3 huge round tables on their second floor dining area! If you want to enjoy this kind of place, you don't order your typical "Westernized" Chinese dishes! We ordered nine dishes per table,... More

Service was good and prices reasonable. Restaurant was clean with linen tablecloths and napkins. The food was ok. Everything was served hot which was good. The server was attentive and helpful with my special order.

My favorite place in Chinatown to eat a meal.Lots of Chinese families eating their food and that is a good sign. We love their whole fish and anything with shrimp.

A small Chinese restaurant with reasonable prices for good food in the heart of Chinatown. Service was quick and efficient. It was noticeable that the Jade Harbor was popular with people from the Chinese community - always a good sign to me that a restaurant is well regarded.

I feel sorry for the fellow reviewer below me who had such a terrible-sounding experience. Mine couldn't have been further from the truth. Went here for a family dinner as I was from out of town (Canada) visiting relatives in Philadelphia. Had the duck, steamed fish, pork chops stir fried in veggies, plate of steamed veggies, soup to start and... More

Went to China town to get that authentic experience, got more than i expected. Their food was good but the customer service and manners really beyond disgusting. I got my food and was enjoying it except the really small cup of rice they give you so i asked for another cup, i noticed the waiter go to where the checks... More
