“Not that good”
Reviewed January 31, 2011

We were sent to Jeffs Chinese by a friend who had eaten their food when they were in the old location, and liked it. What a disappointment it was to me. The food was generally flavorless, and was similar to what I would expect at an average, or below, Chinese buffet. Maybe I'm just used to Chinese food with more flavor, where I can taste the individual parts of a dish and the vegetables are crisper.

I can't recommend this establishment to anyone, and will not be back.

This is a "takeaway " with a few tables
Food is OK but a little bit bland

“This is the best chinese around, they are not like any of the other ones”
Reviewed October 30, 2010

I have been looking for good chinese food and found that they have been doing chinese food for over 25 years in this area. I gave it a try and wow I am hooked. The inside is clean and the food is the Best. No yellow rice. When they say they are different then the other chinese rest. they realy are and you can tell that they care. Everything is homemade.

“No Taste, no seasoning and no flavor”
Reviewed October 9, 2010

Jeff's was highly rated by others but I found it bad. If you like ordinary, bland flavored food then this is the place for you. If you know how real chinese food should taste then go elsewhere.
