Jade Garden absolutely has THE BEST Chinese food in Manchester, hands down! My husband and I have tried so many Chinese places in the area, and even in South Windsor, but we've found Jade Garden to be consistently the best. Their food is always fresh and superior in taste. The portions they give you are more than meals, they will keep you eating for a couple days and their prices are very reasonable. They are conveniently located down the street from Shady Glen, on the same side. An added bonus: One of the owners/chefs looks like Elvis and is very funny - you'll know him when you see him.
Pros: Great food, friendly, huge portions, reasonable prices.
