I pass this place all the time since it is across the street from Sweet & Tart and always wondered if it was good. Last night, since there was a thirty minute wait at Yi Xiang, we decided to try it. It says C & J on the awning outside, but inside the reviews call it Jade Palace. When we arrived the place was packed, but for the two of us we only had to wait ten minutes. It continued to have about ten people consistently waiting for tables even when we left at 9:30.
They have a nice selection of fresh fish and seafood, including live prawns and geoduck clam. We ordered the dungeoness crab with ginger and scallion, sizzling steak with chinese broccoli and shrimp in XO sauce. All three dishes were excellent. The shrimp was delicious and very fresh and the crab was great as well.
Some of the reviews on the wall raved about their dim sum and I was wondering if anyone has ever been there for it.
