Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Shame that such a busy restaurant on a Friday night had such a queue of people waiting for take always because the telephone order system in my case said 40 minutes but it was nearer an hour. I suspect that was the same for the...other slightly annoyed looking people hanging around in the waiting area. Coupled with three attempts for them to match my name with the right order meant a very disappointing experience. It was a much better place many years ago.More

Thank you for your review As you stated it was quite busy and a longer waiting period, we try to keep up the timescale but sometimes with lots of order waiting a little extra time happens.

For a birthday party, a group of 15 of us went to Jade fountain. For £24 each we were served as much food as we could stomach! Over 6 ducks, multiple servings of every main we asked for with great and efficient service. For a...large group we often find it hard to find a suitable establishment but Jade fountain (Sawston) accommodated us with excellent service from Eric and other staff. Would highly recommend for anyone in the area who is looking for a Chinese restaurant with class and great service. 5 starsMore

We made reservations on the phone, and arrived at the restaurant to a lovely reception. Was taken to our table the service was a little slow but they were extremely busy. However it was well worth the slight wait the food was amazing very cooked...not greasy at all. The food was exceptional and really nice will definitely be going back very soonMore

Went for a birthday meal. Hadn't been before and reviews looked good. It wasn't busy, about a third full, but the service was slow and inattentive. One couple walked out due to the lack of service. We chose the taster menu, which with hindsight, was...not the best value for money unless you have a huge appetite and lots of time to spare! The soft drinks are expensive, £4.80 for a coke, it's only 20p more for a beer! The food itself wasn't bad but nothing special, our local takeaway is tastier. Mistakes on the order, forgotten drinks, slow service, all in all a disappointing meal out, will not recommend or be back. £180 for 5 people!More

Thank you for your review Drinks are within range with other restaurant, cokes are in a pint size glass whereas others are only 330ml. 5 people costing £175 going out to eat is a cheap night out.

Without a doubt the nicest Chinese I have had in Cambridgeshire. Been going here for the last 15 years and love it a little more each time I go. Eric, who was serving and chatting to us the most, was funny, charming and knowledgeable of...what we may or may not like, recommended new food to us and we have no regrets. 5 out 5, service, taste and pricing. Go here for great food, nice staff, a pleasant atmosphere and fantastic experience.More

Travelled from near Edinburgh and staying in Cambridge to see friends this week. We decided to make the trip out to Sawston for lunch here and were very glad we did, The service was friendly and efficient, and the cooking was spot on. We chose...the tasting menu which allows you to sample your choice of most of the a la carte dishes in smaller portions. And if you aren't full, you can order again. My favourites were salt and spicy tofu, Hunan prawn, and fried noodles with beansproutsMore

We knew Eric from his time in Buntingford, where his take away food was legendary, especially the best Kung Po Prawns we have aver tasted... As he now has a restaurant in Sawston we decided to try it out as a Mothers Day treat. We...were not disappointed. Eric met us like long lost friends and the atmosphere he has created in the restaurant is both welcoming and vibrant. We had planned to eat from the A La carte menu but Eric persuaded us to try the all you can eat version. We were skeptical because usually all you can eat denotes low quality. We could not be more wrong.. almost the whole menu is available to order, and we were treated to small but delicious dishes, totally of our own choosing with the option to order more if we liked a specific dish. Eric guided us as he knows our tastes, and what an amazing meal it was. Eric is clearly perfecting his skills in the kitchen, and we couldn't believe that he actually improved on the Kung Po Prawns, and of course we had to have a second portion of those. We will definitely be back, there are so many dishes we wanted to try but couldn't manage. We highly recommend the Jade Fountain.More
