Critic's Review

The Jade Palace is one of few sit down chinese restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. Its right across the street from the Galleria Mall, which sports a PF Changs and you can also get chinese food in the food court.

First off, the Jade Palance refers to their place as a "Restaurant and Lounge". Well the lounge is a bar devoid of character (or people), so you can just lop that off. As far as the restaurant goes, its not much better.

The inability to properly process a simple take-out order is the death knell to any chinese restaurant. They either got my order wrong, or the Yeung Chow Fried Rice is exactly the same as the House Special. You can't really tell with chinese food; they charged me for Yeung Chow. So I'll just have to say that its the worst Yeung Chow Fried Rice I've ever had, mainly because the pork wasn't barbequed and didn't seem any different from the pork you'd expect in regular pork fried rice. Since the BBQ pork is the entire point of Yeung Chow, it fails miserably.

On to the dumplings. You get 6 large dumplings; unfortunately the filling lacks any sort of flavor that would separate them from something not chinese; no distinct chinese flavors and clearly made with little skill. They are just not worth the calories.

On the service side, my takeout was stocked with 3 soy sauce, a fortune cookie and a fork. No duck sauce, no mustard and no napkin. I didn't initially look in the bag and asked for extra mustard; it seemed like a major ordeal for them to accommodate me. They had no condiments in the front counter. It seemed that extra or customized condiment requests were something they were ill-suited to handle.

Adding insult to injury, the Jade Palace is on the expensive side. Not PF Chang's expensive, but about $1 more per item than the superior food available at Chen's or New Hong Kong Chinese Foods.
