“Mediocre at best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We went to this place where we found a very quiet chinese restaurant, next to a large boulevard in Etterbeek.
While I agree that it is nicely decorated and the staff are trying to make their best, the atmosphere was rather bizarre for this type of restaurant.

Apart from my so-so Beijing duck, 'the specialty of the house', the other dishes were sub-mediocre, dominated by an unfresh taste. They brought a 'milk and cereals' type topped with rice for each one of us, which was replaced at some point (??), along with an old metallic heater, aimed to keep the food warm. The waitress came afterwards at our table and pack, without any notice, the peking duck in wraps, even though I have already started to roll some. Annoyingly enough, at the end, she insisted that we should let her reheat the soups, which we've let aside, creating another embarrassing moment for us.

“Mediocre restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We went to Le Jaspe one evening for dinner. It is a small resto but pretty nice. The food has nothing spectacular. Let's say the pekin duck is a safe choice. I had the chicken with chinese mushrooms and it was unseasoned. I also ordered ravioli chinese soup but I didn't like it. It had some chicken but also a strong smell of pork. For those who like pork I think it's ok.
To sum up, it is a mediocre chinese restaurant.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

A very good Chinese restaurant, but a little on the pricey side. Food and service was excellent - I therefore would recommend this place. But call ahead to make sure they're open, and to make sure that there's a table available.

It is a high quality Chinese restaurant. The food is tasty and the prices are reasonable. Better book: it can be full even on weekdays.
