“Consistently among best Chinese in Singapore”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Attentive service,consistently above average food, reasonable prices, always.
Reservations a must!
3 of us, a Singaporean with 2 dear European friends had Chinese steak, eggplant, green veggies in stock, after the appetisers of thinly sliced pork trotters, ~ braised slice beef and crispy silver fish!
Our conversation was very serious - about Russian aggression in Ukraine, nevertheless, we enjoyed the dinner and time together!
The restaurant is elegant but it is always packed and therefore noisy at times.
Wonderful extensive menu of favorites from my childhood, so homespun dishes of claypot rice, steamed eggs, Chinese steak to banquet foods. Also always good wines at moderate prices. You can sit there from early in the evening, eating appetisers and drinking wine - tapas style!

“Quality Cantonese Cuisine”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Only the discerning will know this restaurant is one of the few to cook good old Cantonese cuisine the right way. Similar to the restaurants in Hong Kong, the entrance of Jade Palace is lined with tanks and tanks of live seafood.
Flip open the menu and feel yourself transported to Hong Kong. A wide variety of choices and some which are not found in other Cantonese restaurants.
The stir fried black pepper wagyu beef cubes were excellent. While chunky, they were so tender to the bite. I love that the beef cubes are not smothered in sauce but skillfully coated with a thin layer. The subtle taste of black pepper does not overwhelm the meat hence the beef still tastes of...beef! The claypot prawn glass noodles with shrimp roe is another winner. Succulent fresh prawns sauteed, added flavour to the originally bland glass noodles. Every single strand of glass noodle was generously coated with shrimp roe, which makes it all the more tastier. While I prefer my cod steamed rather than fried, the chef had done a great job in deep frying this piece of cod to a crispy perfection. The inside of the fish is still tender and moist while the skin was crispy.
Jade Palace remains one of my favourite Chinese restaurants of all times. While the price is on the high side, but given the quality of ingredients and skill of the chef, its worth every penny. No wonder its also a haunt of many Japanese expatriates.

“One of the best places for pairing fine wine with Chinese Food”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

A secret place where wine lovers all over Singapore gather for fine Cantonese cuisine. Great stemware and staff are well trained in wine service. Great wine list with mainly French labels with very reasonable prices. BYO is encouraged and there is no corkage charges. Food is excellent if you know what to order.

Dishes that are a must try include the following:
Roast Suckling Piglet (Pre-order is required)
Crispy Braised Beef Brisket
Roast Duck
Deep Fried Frogs Legs with Crispy Ginger Chips
Prawn with Thai Glass Noodles
Braised Fish with Bean Curd and Bitter Gourd
Claypot Rice with Chinese Sausage and preserved meats

Prices are comparable to any fine continental fine dining restaurant. At around $120 per person without wine.

Reservations is advised as they are usually full on most dinners and on weekends.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

We selected a few dishes and the server looked like he was trying to better define how they would best be served. These changes tripled the bill. While what we got was good, it wasn't worth 200 S$

“Not as recommended”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Jade Palace was recommended to us by a foodie? We booked a table, got there and right away there were problems, they showed us to a table and then we were told that it was not our table, back to receptiion to sort it out in the end we got our table. The staff were very attentive, I was bought up on asian food and asked for Dim Sums told not served at night only in the day ok, placed our order and waited. The starters came (soup) and straight away one of the mains closely followed by the second. The third arrived about 20 minutes later after asking twice where it was. Advice don't have a bottle of wine the house wine is a lot nicer. We ate a lot in China town and this was the best place to eat. Will be going back to Singapore but to Jade Palace.
