“Good Dim Sum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

I really enjoy coming here for the dim sum. I like the variety and it is always freshly made. Grace, she may be one of the owners, seems to always come by and say hello and check on you to see how your food is. I have been here by myself, with one other person, and a large group and have found them to always be accommodating to our requests. This is my "go to" place for dim sum in the South Bay.

“The real deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

When we first walked in i was taken aback. A large cafeteria-like room, filled to the brim and very very loud. Almost turned around but decided to stay. We were the only irish couple there and the only ones eating with a fork? :). This is the real deal, excellent authentic chinese food!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

Good Sunday dim sum. Was very pleased with everything we had, especially the durian pastries (you have to order them separately). Jade Cathay has different food options that I've not seen at other dim sum restaurants - and they're very tasty!

The place gets crowded, so its best to arrive before 12 on a Sunday. It's also very affordable. For three of us it was around $30!

“Very Traditional Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Normally eat more Americanized Chinese food, but this was good. Very tiny pieces of meat/egg mixed with rice. Got two dim sum dishes as appetizers. Both tasted the same. Some unidentifyable thing wrapped in a noodle. Food okay, but I enjoyed the atmosphere and tea.
