Having lived on the east side of town for over 10 years I have eaten at Jade Garden many many times. Eat in, take out, department lunches, you name it. I always considered it to be a bit pricey, but worth it for the quality of the food. Since my husband lost his job eating out is not something that happens that frequently anymore, so it's been a good year since I've eaten there. Today I was in that shopping center and decided to order soemthing to take back to work. The woman who took care of me was very nice, and the combination meal was certainly well priced. I got back to work and tore in. To my disappointment, the won ton soup was an almost clear broth with 3 hard knots and a few strips of scallion. Tasteless. Went in the garbage. My all time vegetarian favorite, Buddha Delight..was just as tasteless. I have eaten this so many times, it is supposed to be all different veggies and blocks of tofu in a garlicky delicious white sauce. What I got was steamed and bland broccoli, a few pieces of bamboo shoot and teeny mushroom bits. A few peices of firm but bland tofu. No baby corn, no water chestnuts..no flavor. The watery sauce in the bottom of the tray couldn't even be helped with soy sauce. The eggroll did have flavor. Unfortunatley it was the flavor of ""old"" grease. The bag of noodles tasted exactly like the egg roll. Greasy and old. Very disappointing. I will not be going back.
