“Our favourite Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We have been using this restaurant for over 26 years now. It is family run and the mother was always front of house and has now handed over to daughter and her husband. The food has always been excellent and remains so. We have eaten Chinese food in various countries/ locations - even Beijing - but this is the best. We always ask for NO 'msg' (monosodium glutamate) which is used by some restaurants as a flavour enhancer, and yet it is still very tasty.
We are always given a warm welcome. Service is pretty good unless there is a lot of take-away orders being taken. Even then they cope well and you don't wait too long. Once a year at Chinese New Year they celebrate by having a special menu and we are entertained to dragon dancing and other chinese dances with firecrackers as a finale.
It has downstairs and upstairs dining areas. It is always popular and tables can be a bit too close together but worth putting up with for the good food.

“Terrible service.”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We never did get to eat here as we waited for 45 minutes without even a sniff of a starter. We asked the waiter how long as he told us he had no idea!!! In the same time there was a steady stream of people in and out for take aways. Its clear where the priorities lie at the Jade Garden. The decor is poor too and the atmosphere is lacking. Needs a bit of a shake up really.

“Lovely food, dated decor..”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I like Chinese food. This restaurant came very well reocmmended so we tried it. The food was wonderful! Crispy shredded beef that beats anything else we have tried in the UK, Singapore noodles that take to straight to Orchard Road. The only let down? The restaurant could do with a lick of paint! In the way of most Chinese restaurants it is quite dark, and white walls and good lights would transform it into a stunning experience. Hence

Food : A+
Decor : C
Overall : B+
