We went here for a family dinner and while the service was very good and the staff extremely friendly, we simply didn't like the food that much. I would definitely say that you should try it and not take my rating as proof. Some people in our group loved it and some didn't even finish their plates, so it's just... More

We live about a mile away and dine at Jade Fountain probably 4-5 times a year (for the past 24 years.) We like it for dine-in or take out. We have never left dissatisfied.

This is your typical American Chinese restaurant food. It has survived in this spot for a long time. Service/including carryout is fast and pleasant. Prices are average. Inside decor is outdated but clean. Food is sometimes over salted. There is definitely better Chinese food in the Twin Cities, but this works for convenience.

The Jade Fountain is unassuming from the outside, but is a take-out staple for my family. The other Chinese restaurants in the area don't stack up to the quality or the speed. When we eat out, we'll do a sit-down meal in their dining area and occasionally do the lunch buffet.

We have tried Jade Fountain three times in 14 years and every time it has been lousy. The food is sub-par and it's amazing that this is the only Chinese option in a small town that offers great Japanese sushi in multiple locations. Not recommended at all.

Ordered takeout for dinner. Had egg rolls, shrimp fried rice and chicken/broccoli. All of the food was good. Tremendously special? Not really. Just good. Would I order from this Chinese restaurant again? Absolutely.

We love this place and wish we'd discovered it years ago. We got a recommendation to go to this restaurant within the last six months and we have never been disappointed. We've eaten in and taken out and eat their delicious food almost once a week. We've enjoyed everything from their chow mein and fried rice to their many wonderful... More

From the egg rolls to the fortune cookie, this place is great! We had General Chicken and Beef with Orange Sauce, the food was good and the service was excellent.

Especially good today. Very fresh and high quality. Excellent value, we ordered three entree's with three sides. All where good with a very fair portion. I do not eat meat so ordered the spicy Tofu which was superb! Service was quick and although they were very busy today they where helpful, efficient and timely while the food quality did not...

We used to give that place to Lee Ann Chin but now that they're only (bad) fast food, this is the place to go for high-quality, delicious Chinese food with excellent sauces and preparation. Good for take-out, good for dine-in, it's been our favorite for many years. And it's a tradition on Christmas Eve! We love their appetizers but Beef... More
