Average strip mall, take out and delivery Chinese. They do have a couple tables if you want to dine in. I recently started working near by and was looking for another lunch option. I was pleasantly pleased. The lunch was under $6 with tax and was a huge serving. It was also cooked to order = hot and fresh! Not... More

Awful service and we waited forever for our food. Typical Chinese restaurant. I think that with more personable service we would have stayed.

On our recent vacation we could not locate a restaurant close to our hotel, everything was fast food. We found Jade Garden in a shopping area close to our hotel so we stopped. The food is cooked when you order so we gave it a try and took back to our room. The food tasted very fresh and delicious. The... More

I don't care where one goes in America, every average sized town has three or more Chinese take-out places that look just like Jade Garden. That being said, Jade Garden is an absolute bargain if one is looking for a good hot lunch for $5.00 in Charlottesville. The portions are large and food is not bad. The aging strip mall... More

After receiving the food for delivery I ended up cooking instead and have the food away. It is cheap Chinese food, but not in the good way. The food lacks flavor, depth, inspiration, and ingredients. I would not even eat this as hangover food. The S+S pork had more breading than pork, and the pork itself lacked flavor and skilled... More

Good Chinese takeout - for whatever reason they have the best lo mein. Everything else I have gotten there has been decent, and they are fairly speedy at getting you your order. I have called driving to them and they have had it ready by the time I get there. The one downside is that it is CASH ONLY.

We've been getting lunch deliveries from this place for years. Food is always hot and delicious and delivered promptly to our back "double door". Lunch special prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. Best Egg Foo Young in town!

Don't expect to be seated and don't expect to be waited upon by white shirted and black pants wearing servers. DO expect to eat some of the best food in C'ville in this cuisine formulation for take out. DO expect to smell the marvelous smells from a very busy kitchen and if your lucky to be standing in the right... More
