You can hear the Thai cook chopping the vegetables in the kitchen after you order. That's how fresh food here is. We ordered spicy tender chicken, fried rice, Thai shrimp soup with vegetables, vegetable egg rolls, and hot and sour soup, with special Thai ice tea with coconut milk. I wish I could remember all the proper words for this! Ha! Simply put, everything was fresh, tasty, and delicious. This is a down home, locally owned cafe owned and operated by a Jackson lady who is from Thailand and who has owned several restaurants since she came to Jackson in the 1970s. As such, it is not the fanciest venue you will find, but all the food is delicious, professionally cooked, authentic Thai, and cooked with love by a hard working Thai lady who wants to share her food and culture with others. I enjoy supporting local business, and especially businesses owned by women. Tip: If you can agree on the same dish, order one main entree and share it. It's about enough for four people. We took home almost two pints of food plus rice. Also do try the special tea. It makes a great dessert! It is closed Monday through Wednesday.

When we walked in the restaurant was almost empty and is located in a shopping center. This is a Mongolian BBQ where we chose everything we wanted from a huge buffet and put it in a bowl. Your are charged depending upon the size of bowl you want. There was so much to choose from that it was overwhelming. Then it was put on a very large hot metal cooktop. I happened to choose a very spicy sauce by mistake and If I hadnât done that it would have been a perfect meal for me. My husband loved it. It wasnât cheap, but it was a nice experience. They had a full bar, but we thought a beer would compliment it more. The waiter was friendly and helpful, because if you have never been there before you will need directions on bowl size and what to do

Transport yourself from Jackson to anywhere in the world when you visit our locally-owned and operated restaurant for French food, Asian food, Mexican food, and more. Sit back and relax as you indulge in award-winning food and service. For your convenienc
Ate lunch, most of the time we ate dinner there. Their dinners are better, but also higher. They had the usual things you find in China Restaurant, spices chicken, baked chicken, chicken with peppers & onions, steak with peppers & onions, biscuits, rolls, salad bar, cookies, melons out of season so wasn't good and ice cream. I think we will try another China Restaurant next time. Like I said their Dinners are better or they use to be, it's been a while since we ate there.

Just close your eyes, put one taste in your mouth, and you will be instantly be transported to another country, if only momentarily during your meal. If you have traveled West Africa or visited Jamaica, you will know instantly that this tasty and healthy cuisine is right on the mark. And if you have never tried these two cuisines, I can recommend the Jamaican jerk chicken; just about everyone will love this dish. The west African cuisine is something you will yearn for once you have tried it. The owners feature several different meat choices prepared with just right spices, real African vegetables, on a bed of rice. The menu features about seven entrees which rotate from week to week, according to availability of locally sourced fresh ingredients. Despite its humble location, this well prepared and delicious food will wow your taste buds, and the hospitality of the owners and their family members, as well as the cleanliness of the place, will make you want to come back soon. You can easily access this restaurant off I-40, go off either exit 80A or 82A. At exit 80A go left at the first traffic light and find the restaurant about two miles on the left, before Tulum. Off Exit 82A take a right at the first traffic light and you will see the restaurant about 1/4 mile on the right, Just after Tulum.

We thought this was a fairly good place---for a buffet, which we don't much care for. Since our first visit 15 months ago, the thrill is gone. For a huge place with lots of offerings, the astonishing thing is that everything tastes the same! The ingredients may remind you of the dish they claim it is, but only by appearance. I was there last night, and could see that the dish that got the most attention was the sweet potatoes! My husband was let down by the scarcity of ingredients at the hibachi grill. No baby corn, no water chestnuts, no sprouts, no flavor. The Crab Rangoon had some spark and the egg roll was pretty good. BUT! And this is a big but, the air conditioner is so powerful the food gets cold within a minute. So if anything had a chance of being good it's diminished by being cold. We need air conditioning here, but there must be a way to allow for hot food. The service is always fine. It seems that the food area is kept neat, which is critical. I wish the dishes were distinctive and well seasoned

We wanted something tasty, so we choose this place. My daughter had the Udon and I the spicy pork. The Udon was okay, but her salad was pretty bad (chunks of iceberg lettuce with some shreds of carrot and cabbage and smothered in an over-sweet dressing). My pork dish was actually a Korean dish (which is good and I guess the owners are Korean), but the seasoning were not of high quality (I guess cheaper red pepper was the culprit) and the taste suffered.Frankly, ne could do much better.

I have been visiting this establishment for years...way before it was in the current location. Before tonight I was treated with respect. The service was sometimes better than others. The food was always pretty good or better. This was my last visit...The woman who I have always assumed was the owner was present for my entire visit and even chimed in loudly a negative response when our sever asked if she should comp something. The entire visit we never asked for anything except good service and good food. We were never, not once, confrontational or unpleasant.We sat in the bar. Our order of hot saki was delayed 30 minutes because the machine malfunctioned right in front of us...things happen. We didnât complain or fret.We ordered shrimp and medium steak hibachi. The steak was cooked on the outside and bloody inside. The vegetables were very small diced. They look d like leftovers. There were no sauces or knives. Eventually after I got up and walked to the hostess we got a butter knife. I know...a butter knife to cut steak....I asked for the meat to be cooked properly and for vegetables that were cut (Julien) and cooked like we would get at a hibachi table. The plate came back LOOKING great...but...the steak and shrimp had been salted so heavy that I could still taste it in my mouth when I got home an hour later. I only ate ONE shrimp. The vegetables were raw. My dinner companion was braver in an effort to not cause a scene and tried both which made her sick to her stomach. Long story still long we paid $70 for food that was ineatible. There was no reason to drag the poor server through the muke as the owner woman was right there the entire time. My family is multi-generational food service. I have a history of food expertise. I have a son that specializes in Japanese cuisine and is nationally recognized. I do not give one star ratings without forethought and I understand sometimes you have an off day. My guess is the kitchen took the steak and shrimp, threw it back on the grill, tossed on a BUNCH of salt and reserved it. The vegetables were cut fresh, warmed a bit and served. Total garbage and completely unprofessional from management to kitchen. I will not be back and I will recount this accurate description of the night to my friends.

Asia Garden is Jackson, TNâs award-winning Chinese, Japanese and Sushi restaurant! We have Delivery, Dine-In, or Carry-out Available.
Very good food, reasonably priced. It's not your typical Chinese buffet but the portions are large and the food is cooked fresh to order. Service is OK the 2 times we have been here, nothing great and a tad slow, but OK.Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are working on getting our food times better. It's been interesting coordinating Chinese, Japanese, & Sushi as they all come from 3 different places in the restaurant but our times are getting better and will just improve with time. Hope to see you again soon!

I was traveling through Jackson, Tennessee for work. I was staying at the comfort inn, when I asked what good restaurants are around. Someone suggested Jiang Jun and was told that they deliver to close by hotels for cheep. I ordered some food for delivery, chicken with steamed vegetables, sesame chicken w/fried rice and the American house roll-(fried) I must say this is some of the best Chinese/Japanese food I've had in a while. A little pricey them I'm use to, but well worth it. I hope was very pleased.

Get your lunch for less by ordering one of our lunch specials. Our restaurant also features a full bar with happy hour. Take a look at all of the lunch specials on our menu.
Had the "Fresh and Light" roll with a salad of seaweed, cucumbers, and shrimp. Friend had "Mexico" roll. Everything was beautiful and tasted clean and fresh. Service left something to be desired.
