“Best Restaurant for Asian/Chinese Food on the Island”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

I am sure like most of us that review or or frequent Tripadvisor you have read the other reviews on Jade's Bistro. The reviews are generally good but I think a bit to critical at times. Amelia Island is a small but special place 2 miles wide and 13 miles long. We have lots of great restaurants which include a few very good Sushi spots, but if you want to eat what most of us think of as traditional Chinese take out food, there is no question that Jade's is the best on the Island.

The food is good and the value is great. The space is very nice with a central bar, booths and tables. As far as these things go, the space is very acceptable and the wait staff efficient. The value is excellent with their special prices for dinner and lunch.

We are infrequent visitors to Jade's, but it is always good and you will not be disappointed. We ate the there on Christmas Eve and it was very busy with in house dining and take out. The food was very good. I had the Peking Duck which was a large portion, crispy and cooked to perfection. The soups were good and hot as well. My wife had the sizzling fish which was nothing short of amazing as it was served on a large sizzling iron platter on wood base. She ordered a veggie dish as well that was steamed to perfection. Is there better Asian food elsewhere: probably. On Amelia Island: Not really!

So, if you want Asian food on the Island in a pleasant restaurant, don't hesitate to dine at Jade's Bistro. It is located in the upscale strip center on Sadler/8th Street at the opposite end from Starbucks and next door to Fancy Sushi.

“Pleasant surprise stop for lunch.”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We were on our way to check into our hotel and looked on the gps for Chinese restaurants. We came across Jade's and was very satisfied. The presentation was wonderful. The quality of the food and the price was very pleasing. I had the teriyaki chicken and it was very delicately flavored. Mine came salad. I didn't care for the salad dressing, but that was a personal preference thing. My husband had cashew chicken and it was very good as well. He ordered the wonton soup with his meal and we both had spring rolls included. Our entrees were each $6.95. I couldn't believe the quality of the food for the price. I would highly recommend Jade's.

“one step up”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

don't know why they call it a bistro ---this place is nothing more than a step up from a chinese take out--they fuse different asian cuisines together that's all---to me the food was no different that if I ordered from the Chinese take out up the road---it's just that we sat down and ate it there--had the plum wine--nice---the atmosphere was spacious --almost too big

“Up Scale - Killer Hot and Sour Soup”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Nice up scale bistro. Wine list very nice and large. Beer missing any dark beers (New Castle...) heavy focus on Asian Beer. Considering the wine menu you might think more thought would go into the beer. Maybe it did - they probably know their customers. Place was busy.

Menu is not as fusion as other reviews will have you believe. While there is a variety of entrees, mostly China and Thai, that is not fusion; its China or Thai.

Apps menu did not do anything for us, while the regular menu covered most of what you might expect. Hot and Sour Soup was perhaps the best I have eaten. Outstanding. Overall the meals were very good as was the service. Price was a bargain.
