I recently went here with some friends, and we were pretty disgusted to see live fish stuffed into a small tank as though they were vegetables. Barbarians. Won't be back.

This restraunts takes way to long to serve food. Plus when they do they serve it not all at once but 20 min break. The BBQ roast pork is dry and they were supposed to have it ready but we waiter 1 hour to get something that was like a dry piece of bark.

When we arrived and saw that most of the customers seemed to be Chinese, we had a pretty good idea we would be glad we came, and we were not disappointed! Had a delicious stir fry beef dish and yellow rice.

You need to know where you're going to find this place. It's easy to miss as you are driving by. The menu is extensive - by the time you look through the regular and dim sum menu, it's clear they do it all. I tried the chicken with lettuce wrap as well as a bit of the salt spiced shrimp.... More

We were wanting Chinese food on our vacation and I contacted a local friend. He brought us to this seafood restaurant that he comes to all the time. We were a party of three and began choosing menu items ala carte. My friend suggested that we order the preset menu for four, but I thought it was too much food,... More

This a very authentic Cantonese restaurant. Highly recommended! We read many reviews in tripadvisor about Chinese restaurant in Denver. We checked those ranked at top. Only this one became our first choice!

We went here with some friends that knew the area and were not disappointed. Plenty of good eats including whole fish, squid, steamed bread, soup, tofu, spare ribs, and chicken.

Shame on us for waiting five months into our Denver stay to visit JJs! Absolutely fabulous across the board. Four dim sum treats and Kung Pao terrific. Super fresh seafood and other ingredients. We cannot wait to explore more of the menu! This is probably a top 50 restaurant in Denver, and is ranked lower due only to so few... More

i love this restaurant, everything, all tastes are differences and fantastic, not like these too many American style Chinese restaurant, either white sauce or red sauce stirred with different veg and meat or seafood, that all the same thing. but in jj you will have the authentic Chinese food.
