Description

This is the build-your-own theme park of Asian cooking - Jade lets you pick out your own fresh veggies, meats, seafood, and sauces, and then stir-fries it right before your very eyes.

Though it runs a few bucks more than your average Chinese joint, the food per dollar ratio is HEAVILY weighted in your favor. If you've got a more modest appetite, then you'll have plenty o' leftovers. And if nothing else, the novelty of the cooking spectacle is sure to impress.

The place is terrible. The restroom was unbelievably dirty. The food was cold and unappetizing. Seems like the owner of this establishment doesn't care about his customers. Either that, or he just has terrible management skills. But the waiter named, Alan, and the short grill cook gave excellent service. If you want to dine here, look for those two. Good luck!

The service here is great. I think this Alan guy that everyone is talking about must have been our waiter, because he was really exceptional. The food is sub-par for a Mongolian grill. I hear they used to have crab legs on the buffet. That would help a lot, as the selection is pretty ho-hum. The Mongolian grill component could save the whole thing, but it's just not as good as other places I've had. It's all about the sauce!! That said, you can definitely fill up here for about 10 bucks & it's pretty decent, just not the best.

I haven't been in there for a while because I don't eat out much anymore. But this was one of my favorite places to eat! Love the stir-fry with spicy garlic sauce! Alan is the best waiter EVER!

This place used to be decent, but the last time I went there I had the worst meal that I have ever paid for. All of the buffet Chinese food items were cold. Cold egg rolls, cold crab rangoon, cold everything. The Chinese dinner entrees were poor quality as well, so I decided to try some stir fry so I could at least get fresh food. By the time I got to that, my stomach was so upset from everything else I could hardly eat it. I was there with my sister and she couldn't finish anything she picked up either.The waiter noticed that we each had three plates full of food we could not eat and asked if there was a problem. We told him the food was cold and tasted bad and he did NOTHING about it. He charged us full price for the meals and the soft drinks.Oh yeah, the soft-serve machine was also broken. I will never return to this restaurant againa and I can't wait until it goes out of business so a place that serves good food can go up in its place.

This place rawks. I have always had a fantastic dining experience and great service at Jade. If you go on the weekends they have, among other items, Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). Now I finally have an alternative to the only other establishment that serves this dish in my zip code. Thanks, Jade!

Food's pretty good and the service is great! When you go, ask for Jamie. She's awesome! And she's really hot too!!!

Way over priced especially for children. Over $8 for kids buffet is just ridiculous!!!

I generally enjoy the food at this establishment. I still do. Unfortunately, due to the poor customer service I received on my last visit, I won't recommend this restaurant again. I had called to order delivery. After giving my credit card over the phone, the person on the other end repeated the number, expiration date, and security number back to me. For security reasons, I asked him to please not do that. However, he told me that if I didn't like it, then I shouldn't pay by credit card. So I have decided to take him at his word. Don't pay them. Do not frequent this business. It pains me to say this as I really enjoy their food, but I will not eat here again and encourage others to do the same.

Brilliant for the money. Not expensive either. Great staff, friendly and always helpful. And their sushi is good too!

It was TERRIBLE! The place was dirty and looked like no one cared for. There were kids "trying" food from the steam table and trash all over.

This is my family's favorite restaurant in town. My boys love the mongolion bbq aspect, but we also love the service. We know the wait staff and cooks by name and they remember our family and treat us exceptionally well. It is always a nice experience.

Not much selection for a buffet. I've had much better mongolian bbq elsewhere.

Alan is the single greatest server in the greater Lawrence area. That is fact.

This place has gone WAY downhill,the bathrooms are a disgrace and it seemed dirty there. Don't waste your money!

MapMadeMind 13 years, 11 months ago on Jade Mongolian Barbeque

It's definitely on the list of the top five things I miss since moving from the area...and not just because I always seemed to meet important people there.

You won't find better service than this place! A great selection and the grill is to die for!

bizetsy 14 years, 6 months ago on Jade Mongolian Barbeque

I have really enjoyed my experiences at Jade! The servers and staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is quite good! The selection is also huge! The atmosphere is calming and warm. I recommend this place.

After living in Lawrence for almost 2 years, Jade has been a staple for me when I am really hungry, don't feel like spending a lot and want some decent food. No, their buffet isn't perfect but you pay for what you get and it's good enough to go to on a regular basis. It's noisy and usually crowded so the don't expect the best experience and their servers are pretty good (for a buffet place). Maybe not the best place to go if you're just in Lawrence for a day or two but if you live here, it's a must try.

While the buffet items are what you would normally find at a "Chinese" buffet style restaurant, the Mongolian BBQ portion of this place is what makes all the difference. The service is also outstanding, and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommended.

I have been a regular at Jade since it opened, and I really love it. The service is great, the buffet items are the best in town, and while I miss the opportunity to season and sauce my mongolian barbecue items like I can in KC, I can usually create a pretty decent plate of food when I want something different. I love the sushi and crab legs on the weekend!

I think I eat there too much, though...several of the wait staff know me by name, and know what I like to drink.... :)

Has to be some of the best Asian food I have ever had. I also love how you can build your own and have it cooked in front of you.

This place dishes out the worst mongolian bbq I have ever had. I was expecting to be able to mix my own sauce, which is the norm at mongolian bbq restaurants, but was greeted with a system where you pick out a sauce card which the "chefs" make for you. The raw ingredients seemed to be up to par, but the few sauces that I tried were lacking in flavor and depth. For those not interested in creating a custom stirfry there is a small buffet, but the food seemed old and did not taste very good at all. There were enjoyable appetizers and soups but that is not enough to make me go back.

I have had the pleasure of dining here twice and plan to do so frequently in the future. If you haven't had a chance to check this place out, do so as soon as possible. The service is phenomenal as is the exceptional food. This restaurant definitely impressed my family who was in from out of town. It's really a gem of Asian cuisine for Lawrence. GO GO GO!!!
