Crystal jade Kitchen

Location: It is located at 5th floor of causeway point.

Operating hours:11am to 10.00pm daily

I went to crystal jade to have dinner quite a number of times but this is my first visit after the renovation at causeway point. It has shift from the 4th floor to the 5th floor. The current interior design is more chinese style where they made use of flower drawing and wooden door. The whole restaurant is quite spacious and seating are quite comfortable which help in bring pleasant dining experience :)

The table is also equip with this button to call for service. I find this quite useful as least we don't have to keep raising our hands trying to grab attention of the waiter/waitress
Roasted pork belly and crispy roasted duck: We ordered this two dishes and they help us combined into one plate. The roasted pork belly is quite nice except for the skin not crispy. The crispy roasted duck is quite tender and it doesn't give a dry taste. The sauce also goes well with sauce.  

Stewed addicted vegetable with preserved beancurd sauce in a wok: This dish is just quite horrible even though with my favorite vegetables inside. The sauce has a really weird and funny taste. I won't recommend this dish at all.

Braised broccoli with assorted mushroom: This is my favorite dish of all. It is simple and yet delicious. The vegetable is quite well cooked and the sauce goes well with it. It is a must try especially for those who love mushroom!!

Crystal jade fried rice:As our table is full with all the dishes, the waitress helped us to scoop into small bowl for us. The service is quite good. They are quite generous with the ingredients which make the fried rice look appetizing. However, the taste is quite bland and disappointing.

Yang zhou fried rice: It might not look as colorful as crystal jade fried rice but the aroma and taste is really quite good. They use fresh cut prawn instead of those tiny little shrimp which give the an extra chewy taste.

Spicy & Sour Soup: I love spicy & sour soup but this soup is really terrible. I wonder if they have free vinegar as the soup taste so salty. The spicy and sour taste is totally overwhelm by the salty taste ... Try this dish at your own risk

Seafood horfan: I wonder how did they cook this dish? Just cook the hor fan and put aside? When customer order the dish, they just pour the gravy over it. he whole hor fan just stick together like a big chuck and the gravy is quite of bland. Another disappointing dish.

Beancurd with mushroom: The beancurd is quite soft and the gravy helps to enhance the taste. I love this dish :)

DF Marble Goby: This fish is really quite fresh and crispy. It doesn't have the fishy taste. The waitress is quite nice helping us to cut the fish into small portion for us.

  We also ordered a pot of tea which is refillable. Overall, the service in this restaurant is quite good. However, some of the food are not up to standard so you got to know what to order.
