Good... Not Great.....
Went there with my son. I must say the items were hit and miss. I ordered 3 dishes, Sweet and Sour Chicken, which was good. Chop Suey type noodles which were excellent. Shrimp in lobster sauce which I couldn't bring myself to eat because it jiggled on the plate like jello and the flavor was not to my liking. My only problem with the staff is that she looked at me like I was crazy when I told her I didn't like the dish. They made me pay full price for the dish that I didn't eat even though I purchased four full dishes. That seemed a bit harsh, but hey I ordered the shrimp in lobster sauce that looked like a jelly fish had deflated on my plate.
All Rush and No Satisfaction.
Went here based on the reviews and I can say I was VERY disappointed. I ordered take-out and stood near counter forever until I was finally noticed and that happened because someone else came to pay for their food. And even then I had to call the waitress back, because she tried to leave WITHOUT taking my order even after waiting there for so long. I asked a question on how they prepared a certain dish and she was VERY RUDE. She was rush with her words and then got irritated with me when I decided not to order that dish. So basically in the end I order something I already was familiar with. I thought received my order in decent time, BUT it was NOT A COMPLETE ORDER!!! MORE TIME WASTED!!!! I had to go back and ask them for my other items, but they told me it was 15 minute wait for the rest of order. WHAT!?! This place is ALL SHOW with NO PERFORMANCE. I wish I could put minus stars in here.
This place is awesome. There service is on point. They are always asking you if need something at all the right times and in a very non-intrusive way. Usually you actually need what they are asking for, its amazing. So yeah the service is great, but what about the food? As others have said they give you way more than you can eat and you didn't even pay that much for it. How can you beat that!? They really have their food costs in check obviously which is a sign of good management. And the food quality ... it is good! I mean its probably not the best food you ever ate or anything, but it is very good. The atmosphere if you are on a date or you are just by yourself, you can't beat it. It is very quiet and personal. There are other great chinese-type restaurants in Lansing like Ukai, Udon, Oodles etc. But this place is pretty sweet and more than worthy of sticking in your rotation. Do it.
best place there is.
go to this restaurant if you already havnt because it is the best place to dine in michigan and is the only restaurant that cooks the REAL kind of yummy egg drop soup and wonton soup without using the yellow food color and has natural egg colors
Great deal, good food.
It's hard to beat the food for the price. I'm never able to finish my meal here because they give you so much... that's a good thing. The food is really good and the atmosphere is nice as well.
The Apple Jade is by far the best Chinese restaurant in mid-Michigan (and possibly beyond). Reasonably priced, pleasant decor, and good service. Plus (and this is the key) a really clean kitchen!
