“Favorite New York Style DimSum Restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Jade Villa is for the Authentic Chinese Food lover. You can order Dim Sum all week long, but they serve on carts on Saturday and Sunday. This place is a hidden treasure in VA Beach. You would think you are sitting in China Town in New York when you taste this food. It can get quite busy on week ends, but it's worth the wait.

“Best Food”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I had never been to Jade Villa even though I had been told how good it was. Was a wonderful experience. I truly believe they have some of the best food I have ever had in any restaurant. I did not know they served Dim Sum - it was a weekend - and what a pleasant surprise. I only wish I could have tried more but I got full too fast. Can't wait to go again.

“Authentic and delicious!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Unfortunately Jade Villa does not serve Dim Sum from the steam carts on weekdays, but on weekends it is full "steam" ahead. Excellent variety and quality of authentic Dim Sum specialties. The sticky rice was quite good, as were the shrimp w/ rice noodle, turnip cakes, and shu mai. Beef sparerib tips required a bit of work to get a mouthful, but were quite tasty! It gets crowded, so come early or be prepared to wait!

“Great service and Dim Sum!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Second time going, the staff are really patient (because it's hard to tell what's what!), and the food was better to me this time than the first time!

I strongly recommend the steamed pork buns and ha-gow. Fair prices, authentic food. Love it!

“Dim Sum Delicious!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Have been to Jade Villa several times. Food is always good. Especially the fried squid with garlic and the frogs legs. Dim Sum on Sunday morning afternoons is wonderful. They come around with a little cart and you can pick what you want. Its not cheap but the food is traditional and well prepared. During Chinese New Year they have Jow Ga Kung Fu come in and perform traditional lion and dragon dances, Tai Chi and real kung fu with weapons. Super good food with super good entertainment.
