“Good entree, bad soup”
Review of Jade Terrace

Jade Terrace
Ranked #58 of 85 Restaurants in Gros Islet
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Stopped in for lunch on mid-week day. Cheerfully greeted and offered inside (air-conditioned) or outside seating. Very pleasant server seemed to be knowledgeable as to menu items and which were soy-free. (One member of our three-some is soy-intolerant, a major inconvenience at most Chinese restaurants.) Sweet and sour soup was rated very good. My wonton soup was bad: the broth was tasteless and the wontons were soggy and filled with some bland, unidentifiable meat filling. The ten to twelve chopped green onion pieces were the only saving grace. (The restaurant does not have hot mustard sauce available, unfortunate, as I might have spiced up the soup a bit.) All of our entrees were good. My pork, vegetables (carrots, celery, cucumber, bok choy, green pepper) with cashews was very good: the veggies were fresh, crisp and tasty, and served with just enough light brown sauce, lots of cashews, served piping hot and a good portion. The beef with mushrooms and beef with veggies entrees both received good reviews. Prices were reasonable, fairly good value. Would recommend and will probably try again, but skip the wonton soup.

Coming from a place where very good Chinese food is plentiful and many a times quite cheap, I have to say that Jade Terrace offers tasty fare for good value and the kitchen is very fast with getting the dishes on your table. My husband is vegetarian and we dined there not once but twice. We thought their veggie chow mein (they were the soft flat noodles and not the thinner fried egg wonton noodles), the broccoli with garlic sauce ($27 EC) and their black bean tofu ($32 EC) were all very good: not too greasy, good portions, and had light flavourful sauces. The Chinese owners are from China and they seemed to have an efficient Chinese team working the kitchen. The waitress was kind enough to suggest having a half fried rice/noodle ($12 EC) order because she thought we had ordered much food. That was a refreshing change, since so many Rodney Bay restaurants try to upsell you. Also, the place seemed to be teeming with locals as well, so they must be doing something right. When we walked by Baywalk Mall on a Sunday, we peered into a door left ajar and discovered someone making FRESH Chinese noodles. Now that's called putting in some love for your craft. Recommended!!
