I'm new to SI and went to Jade Island as a few ChowHounds seemed to like it. It was fine I suppose if what you’re looking for is the chinese cuisine of my suburban youth. Thick clear sauces, “spicy” dishes that barely made the tongue prickle, a hot and sour soup that was sweet and cold. Honestly though, it was fine just not remotely notable. It may be that SI is no place for Chinese, but I won’t give up is you send suggestions that you love and can vouch for. I love Sichuan and Cantonese and Dim Sum and Hunan... (I could go on and on) Looking for any of these.
We asked a few places if there was SI dim sum, but these places (Chinese Places!?!?) clearly don’t know what dim sum is? (“uh, you want a cocktail?””oh, so like, catering then”)
P.S. Any other SI ethnic that you LOVE I’d love to know about. I’ve got the Sri Lankan down and do quite like it. Live right near them. But, any great Indian? Ethiopian? Pakistani? African? Send me on a quest, I’ll go.
