Chinese (Canton)
Established in 1987, Jade Inn opened its doors as a take away business, when Port Douglas was just a small fishing village. Now over 30 years later, the restaurant still remains as one of the locals favourite dining destinations.
Jade Inn is a fully licenced venue and the food focuses on Cantonese flavours presented, in a modern way.

    We had the Schexwan chicken and black bean beef stir fries. Both were above expectation and very tasty- personally I would have preferred a little less black bean sauce but that’s probably just me. Considering the restaurant was full service was good and the wait staff were friendly and happy. Ambiance sitting under the veranda was very good. We will visit again before we leave

    We are Port Douglas locals, however this was our first experience at the Jade Inn, but definitely won't be our last. The Food, service and ambiance was fantastic... loved everything about this fabulous little restaurant. This is now our "go to" place for a great meal, good service and best value for money. I would definitely recommend to friends and have done all ready...!

    A very predictable experience. We typically go at least once a week when in PD. Highly recommend. If you are pressed for time, they are also very efficient with take-away but it is suggested that you order early as if they get too busy, they do suspend the take-away option.
