Superb choice and as much as you can eat at each and every course makes this one of the best venues for a Chinese meal in the Cambridge area. The food is cooked to perfection and superbly presented. If you like Chinese then this is the place to enjoy it.

Being a HK Chinese living in France, Jade Fountain is the best Chinese restaurant ever tried in Europe. Food is excellent with very reasonable price (compared to France). Service is prompt and friendly.

You'll need to book in the evenings because this place is popular. It's really well run, the food is great and the prices are not expensive. You can get a few dishes to share between you and it wont break the bank.

I always say this to restaurants - be generous with your servings of soft drinks. I always get Chinese tea when eating Chinese food, but I like a soft drink too. The Jade Monkey will not be generous with their servings of soft drink when you visit.

The brickwork and tinted windows make you feel like you're in a jazzed up rec centre, but honestly this doesn't matter. The ambiance is fine, the lighting is good (low) for an intimate meal so you can't even see the walls, they bring out candles to keep the food warm too which is great (Chinese food is best served hot, and doesn't cool well, I think).

Basically if you're in the Cambridge area looking for a Chinese you can drive to - this has got to be your choice. I've been to a lot of Asian food places in Cambridge and this one is right up there at the top.

Why do I call this place the Jade Monkey? It's a better name.

Anyway, top recommendations from me.

Regrettably takeaways are still disappointing compared to the standard we had grown used to in the past as regular visitors to the Jade. Last night's crispy beef did not appear freshly cooked and was dry and unappetising; the sweet and sour prawns were soggy and overly laden with sugar; the chicken noodles (requested without vegetables for our son) were bland and unappetising. In our last takeaway, the crispy seaweed was so full of sugar the sugar crystals were clearly visible to the eye. Judging by my inability to sleep last night and raging thirst (for no other discernible reason) I can only believe this was down to our meal being fully loaded not only with sugar but also MSG. Sadly we will not be returning in the foreseeable future.
