We just tried a random walk-in with this one and weren't disappointed. Spring rolls, chicken soup, Grilled scallops, lots of yummy veggies, General Tso's tofu.... yum!!! Only one thing- the things that were red on the menu with chillies next to them weren't spicy. Like.... not at all. Not even a hint! Even the hot sauce we asked for wasn't... More

Our family has been going to Jade harbor for the last 11 years. Food is always great and consistent. Favorites are Peking duck, Grouper hot pot, deep fried crabs, clams with minced pork, and fish fried rice. I would have give them 5 stars if we are just talking about food, however, the restaurant needs a little updating.

Our food was brought out one thing at a time so my husband had his appetizer and dinner before I had been served anything at all. I ordered pan fried noodles and ended up being served a block of uncooked ramen noodles with chicken and gravy poured over the top. My husband's General Tsos was decent and the chicken wing... More

I use to come here a lot. The food is normally good. I normally like to order stuff such as the stewed pork hot pot and salt baked squid which are actually my two favorites here. The one time I decided to bring my friends who happened to be Caucasian, they wanted to become rude. The moment I go ahead... More

Vast menu. Locals eat here. The last time I ate here was 7 years ago. The food comes out pretty fast and the service was adequate to good. The drinking water glasses left something to be desired, but overall a pretty good restaurant.

We went here with an old friend whom we have known since we were living in Hong Kong 30 years ago. She suggested this restaurant since it is one of the few remaining Cantonese restaurants in Chinatown. We ordered 3 dishes- fried tofu with 3 mushrooms, pork and pineapple, and the spicy stir-fried eggplant- with side dishes of white rice.... More

To be honest I am not an expert in Chinese cuisine. My wife and I picked Jade Harbor by walking through China Town and looking for a restaurant that had a lot of Chinese customers. Jade Harbor qualified. Most tables are large and populated by Chinese families. The food and atmosphere are exactly what I have experienced when I have... More

I'm sorry for all the people who had a bad dining experience at Jade Harbor! Ours was an overall excellent experience! We had reservations, since we occupied 3 huge round tables on their second floor dining area! If you want to enjoy this kind of place, you don't order your typical "Westernized" Chinese dishes! We ordered nine dishes per table,... More

Service was good and prices reasonable. Restaurant was clean with linen tablecloths and napkins. The food was ok. Everything was served hot which was good. The server was attentive and helpful with my special order.

My favorite place in Chinatown to eat a meal.Lots of Chinese families eating their food and that is a good sign. We love their whole fish and anything with shrimp.
