Me and my friends came to this restaurant last week. The meal was good and the service was good and the staff is really friendly. We was all really happy until something happened. As when we finished the starters , We was supposed to get the crispy duck for the second course, but we didn't get it and when out... More

Had my usual Beijing Spare Ribs, Crispy Chilli Beef and Fried Noddles to take away it was the best ever. While waiting I had a beer at the bar chatting to a member staff. I feel they have improved the customers experience having decided to employee professional people with years of experienced in the Chinese catering industry - personally I... More

We have always had takeaways from here and was always excellent but since new management the quality of the food is awful. Ordered chicken noodles it was disgusting, noodles with chicken in a clear slime on top. Would not recommend.

This place is now open again and its a friendly environment with decent food. It isn't the best Chinese food you'll eat but its good value and absolutely fine for an informal meal with family and friends. The interior is a bit dated but it sort of adds to the appeal ... I remember the place opening decades ago and... More

We should have heeded other reviews before ordering from here. Under the previous management, you could not fault the place for both its customer service and quality food. However, this has clearly come to an abrupt with the change in management. It's such a shame as this place used to be great. We will certainly not be returning! And in... More

16 people for dinner prebooked a month ago I can't express how bad the service was. Every year for 10 years we have been coming to the jade for this birthday, our visit began with having to wait for 15 minutes before seated. Our tables were separated by about a metre, we pushed them together and were scowled at for... More

My first time back since the Jade Fountain had new owners. I was really impressed with the food and service, particularly the lady who served us. I highly recommend the Chilli Beef, best I've tasted in a long while - i will be back for more.

After reading some reviews on TripAdvisor, I was slightly concerned about going back to the Jade, but as we had some gift vouchers we booked to go last week and were all really pleased with both the food and the service. We were very well looked after, the food was piping hot and tasted delicious. We all found it to... More

On our return visit to the Jade we found the food had improved 100% on the last time . Quicker service food hot and very tasty must have a new Chef or got their act together well done
