I love the Dim Sum at Jade Fountain. The food is always fresh and hot and the cart service is great. The shrimp and eggplant is some of the best I've every tasted. Nice savory treats and some sweets for dessert.

I just visited Jade Fountain with my friend and our 2 daughters. We arrived shortly after opening time and within 10 minutes the entire place was full. Guests are promptly greeted and one can see the place is full of regulars...we were the only table there that was not Asian. Cart service was plentiful, fresh, and friendly. We had all... More

i have been going there since they opened. over the years, i would occasionally order a dim sum item off the regular fare served on the carts. all too often, i would be ready to leave when the item would show up after 1/2 hour. Sometime the order would not get in. They are hard-pressed to make it right. Even... More

We went here for dim sum on a Saturday late morning early afternoon. Had a long wait but it was worth it. Great food. Fast and plentiful. The serving sizes are large and made fresh. You can also order items from the menu. Gai Lan was perfect. The staff are friendly and a few of the women are VERY easy... More

Whenever we visit Victoria we often had a challenging time seeking 'good' Chinese food in Victoria. We came here with my mother's BFF who is Chinese and has lived in Victoria for over 50 yrs. She recommended this place for dim sum based on value and tasty food. The restaurant is on floor 1R which you need to go inside... More

We have been going there for a number of years. The quality has been declining over that time. The other night my wife went in for supper. There was only one other couple in there dining. That is not a good sign. Our first clue that things might not go well were the three black hairs on the white table... More

Fast and friendly service made this a quick meal. Nothing stands out except the won ton soup, the other dishes were okay and nothing was bad. I'm going to have to try the dim sum at another time.
