We got a chicken green curry with rice and a side of deep fried tofu with sweet and sour sauce with rice and boiled vegetables. The portion sizes were very good and the curry was delicious. The tofu was also nice with the sauce but...More

Service is good, however we just had the all time worst tempura ever. Thick and queasy, heavy battered and terrible flavor. Tempura should be light batter and light flavor.

Jia Tella's serves the best and healthiest food in all of Santa Cruz County! Family owned and 'manned', Jason and his kids take great pride in the quality of their food. And don't miss the co-owned sports bar 'Next Door', also the best around!

I have been to Jia Tella's a number of times over the years. The food is usually good and they have a nice patio for outside dining. However, the service is consistently poor. Last night it took over 30 minutes to get a glass of...More

This is one of those places that although it has its good points, never seems to hit on all cylinders. The "dining room" is a bit of a barn, and can be quite noisy even when not crowded. Service is minimal, often brusque, and the...More
