“Eat here often”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a great place, I eat here often, the noodles are fresh made, the soup is wonderful. There are also many dim sum items that are quite good. My favorite is the spicy noodles w/ minced pork. A great place to take a large party from work or friends.

“Variety, good food, English speaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Crystal Jade is a chain that we ate at in 2 different Crystal Jade locations while in Hong Kong. They seem to be located in nicer malls and are clean, have some staff that speak English, have a large variety menu with pictures and English titles. We like to find reliable, 'safe' restaurants when we travel and Crystal Jade was it! The food is good - we had beef noodles, dim sum, shredded pancake and a soup - all delicious! The only thing we didn't care for was the spring roll - it was a bit greasy and mushy inside. The prices are reasonable and serving sizes good. Tea is served with all meals. This restaurant even provides a napkin, which many in Hong Kong and China do not. We looked for the Crystal Jade in Beijing, but unfortunately, it must have closed. Service and food are worth eating here!

“Xiao Long Bao is great! Noodle textile one of the best in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great price & tasty food. Just the waiting time could be long. I 've been to the IFC & Time Sq stores.
Apart from the famous Xiao Long Bao (steam pork dumping), the noodle (in soup) is really nice. The noodle should be freshly made onsite from scratch (flour) and that's why it is very chewy.

“Can't get enough of those dumplings! Caution about the airport branch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Yummy. I can't get enough of the Xiao Long Bao dumplings or the dumplings in chilli oil or the dumplings with the soup noodles. Delicate flavour, hot and fresh every time.

I usually stop at the airport branch as I travel to and from Hong Kong and have noticed the last few times that the quality seems to have dropped somewhat. The branches at Wan Chai, IFC mall and Admiralty are all spot-on, though.

Does Crystal Jade use MSG? For some reason, I am very thirsty after a trip there. Just wondering.

“Tasty and convenient great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

One of the few places where you can eat quickly and simply and still enjoy the experience in mall such as IFC. Always fun for my family and a great quick treat after an early visit to the cinema on Sunday morning.
