There is a lot to be said about a business like Jade Dragon Restaurant. First and foremost, its food is always delicious, fresh, and incredibly affordable ~ but there are other reasons this gathering spot in Warwick is so popular. This is a business whose customers flock from all around the region just to come here, often passing many competitors along the way - customers like Marsha and David who come from across town in Cowesett for one of their favorite dishes (Fantail Shrimp) and favorite drinks (Mai Tai's)! This is also an establishment whose owner, Judy Chin, greets each customer by name and sees to it that they are given impeccable service every time. Finally, this is a business whose employees are treated with the kind of care usually reserved just for the closest friends and family.
Just ask Jim O'Brien, a loyal employee who began with Jade Dragon sixteen years ago when Judy and Ricki Chin's first hired him as a dishwasher. After all these years, Jim is now a bartender, but it is not uncommon to find him on the floor as a server or behind the wheel of a car delivering food. As Jim says "They are like a second family to me", and as such, he could aptly be called Jim O'Brien "Chin". What all this says about Jade Dragon Restaurant is that it is a first class operation - one with a well-deserved reputation for excellence in food, service and hospitality. This is just the way this restaurant rolls - loyal to its customers, to quality; and especially, to its employees.
Jade Dragon is well-known for its huge menu of tantalizing Chinese cuisine, from its lengthy list of appetizers to its heaping combination platters. What many may not know about the fare at Jade Dragon is that they also have a broad selection of American-style classic sandwiches, including burgers. Some have called their Chicken Club Sandwich "one of the best around", but it would be hard to beat their BLT, stuffed with crispy lettuce, fresh tomatoes and tons of bacon!
Jade Dragon serves up some unexpected and enticing dinner entrees such Fish & Chips, Lemon Scrod, Boston Fried Chicken or even a broiled Delmonico steak. All of Chef Ricki's meals are made from the freshest ingredients, with special care to keep things light and healthy. Chef Ricki also cooks up some delicious meals that contain no soy or wheat products for today's gluten sensitive customer.
