I’ve heard a lot of positive things about this restaurant and the rumors were true! We came here for lunch [6/25/18] and the restaurant was filled! We sat down and gave a glance at the menu.
The service was exceptional and respectable; they knew it was lunch hour and everyone seemed to help each other out. Having worked in a couple restaurants, I understand the importance of working together. While looking at the menu, someone approached our table to greet us and to say that although they weren’t our server, she would gladly take our drink orders since it was busy.
Moving forward with the food! Their menu has a lot of options, but not too overwhelming like some other Chinese restaurants have it. What always catches my attention are the lunch specials, or in this case Luncheon Combinations, which they did have! You can enjoy a soup, with some appetizers along with your entree.
We ordered two luncheon combinations; Beef with Tomatoes ($9) and Szechuan Style Sautéed Shrimp ($13) with Egg Flower Soup and Springroll and Crab Rangoon for our appetizers.
The egg flower soup was thick and delicious, a great way to start our lunch. The Szechuan Style Sautéed Shrimp was also very good. There were plenty of shrimp and they were pretty plump. It also had a nice kick to it, spicy but not too overpowering. My favorite was the Beef with Tomatoes. The gravy was so savory and I personally love tomatoes. I didn’t think such a simple dish would be so good.
Everything from the service to the food was on point. You can taste the quality in every bite. I’m so happy to have finally dined here because I think I just found my new Go-To for Chinese food here in Reno. Palais De Jade, you’ve got me!
