I had eaten at the South location many times and did not know it was moved to 602 North Ankeny Blvd. It is a beautiful decorated location Chinese Décor (did not see the beautiful chandelier that I had enjoyed at the old location) where I was seated with tv. Plenty of parking I found the service and food to be... More

The original Jade Garden was operated by a family and it was located on the South end of Ankeny. It was then sold and the new owners moved it to the North end of town in a different building on the opposite side (West side) of the same street. The menu is about the same but the food is not...

Food was good and the waitress allowed my guest and I to visit. We ordered and food was to us rather quickly. All food that was ordered had a great flavor and was served hot. Hot tea was much needed on a chilly night.

New to the area, we used their delivery service to order take out. The wonton's in the soup had no meat in the middle. The egg rolls were mushy grease conveyance devices. The shrimp in my shrimp w/lobster sauce was so mushy and rotten I could not eat it. My wife's chicken dinner was barely edible. I'm 61 and have... More

I have lived in Ankeny for 16 years and never eaten here, but everyone raved about it, so I had pretty high expectations. Teachers only get to go out for lunch a few times a year, so we try to make it a good place. All of us left saying the food was bland. I had beef & veggies, one... More

I only come here five or so times a year but I am always satisfied, and it's a great place to take friends. The atmosphere is pleasant but quiet enough to easily have a nice conversation. The owner has always thanked me for coming, which is always nice. It's a good locally-owned restaurant.

Do not let the exterior mislead you. It is rather plain, but inside this restaurant has a nice decor. There are a couple of televisions if you want to watch a game while you dine. The place was somewhat empty while I was there, but they seem to do a lot of carry out business. The service was very good.... More

This restaurant has given us some of the best oriental flavored food in Ankeny. Service is very pleasant and good. They have a wide variety of chinese flavored foods. Everything we have had here has been good, from Chicken chow mein, lo mein and fried rice. The egg rolls are good too, not dry. But I am still on my... More

We frequented this place 20 years ago. The business has moved but they have kept some of the original decor. That's the only thing that is the same. The crab Rangoon was doughy. The sesame chicken bland Very disappointing.
