    This restaurant perfectly balances a modern upscale decor with authentic, delicious Chinese food. The chef trained in from Sichuan and knows what he is doing. Food here is ordered on a spicy scale from 1-5. For those brave enough try a 4-5, but I usually stick with a 3! The best Chinese restaurant in Philadelphia -- highly recommended for everything from a classy lunch special, a sweet dinner date, to a special occasion!

  • Dreadful experience. Service was laughable.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/23/2014
    I think my favorite error of the night, other than the sugary sweet sauces, was when we ordered our bottle of wine. We were told they longer have it. Okay, it happens. So, we asked for a suitable replacement, after about fifteen minutes we were shown a more expensive bottle (by about $8.00) and while I was speaking to our server about it, literally in the middle of my sentence, he walked away to another table. We eventually and politely declined the replacement choice. But when the bill came, they were nice enough to add it on to our check anyway. Idiots

    A wonderful restaurant that is one of my most favorites for Szechuan Chinese food that makes you looking forward to that next bite of food as you are eating. I can't find the dishes they serve anywhere else in Philadelphia. The right amount of spice with the right amount of flavor! To go with the great food, Jane G's has a great wine list that can be paired with your food. Just ask your server for assistance if you aren't sure what wine or beer to order with your food selections. I love the atmosphere because of the lively buzz. You can tell the entire dining room is loving the food and their own dining experience!! Whenever I finish my experience at Jane G's, I immediately am thinking about the next opportunity I will have to return for another great experience with friends and family!!

    Dined here over the weekend and loved it. The general tso was tasty, the beer duck was very spicy. Great atmosphere and very chic and trendy inside especially for a chinese place. Jane G walked around several times and asked if we had questions about the menu and then came later to ask about the food. I definitely want to go back and try the hot pots.

    Had a great time at Jane G's - delicious food, good cocktail / beer list, great atmosphere. My only word of caution would be to think twice before ordering anything ranked 5 on the 1-5 spicy scale unless you're absolutely sure you can handle it - I'm normally pretty good with spicy food, but I overestimated my abilities this time around!

    There were three in our party celebrating my cousin's birthday. We had duck, brussel sprouts, mango rice and noodles. Everyone loved the food - with generous portions, there was plenty of leftovers. Only drawback was noisy room that was very warm (with people cooking their special dinners at tabletop stoves). Looking forward to going back and trying that tabletop soup dish.

    GOT TOGETHER WITH A SMALL GROUP OF FRIENDS TO ENJOY JANE G'S CUISINE. THE SERVICE AND QUALITY OF FOOD IS SO CONSISTENTLY GREAT! MY FRIENDS COULDN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW EACH DISH WAS BETTER THAN THE LAST. THE SERVICE WAS SO FRIENDLY AND ATTENTIVE. THE RESTAURANT DOESN'T HESITATE TO HAVE A LARGER STAFF TO MAKE SURE THE CUSTOMERS ARE TAKEN CARE OF. I NEVER TIRE OF GOING TO JANE G'S FOR DINNER OR LUNCH. ALWAYS A GREAT EXPERIENCE!

    I took my mother here for her birthday and the whole experience was awesome! The service was on point and the food was out of this world. Liked that we could adjust the spiciness of the food. We were seated quickly and the staff was very attentive. The kitchen ran out of green tea ice cream, but our waiter accommodated her with another selection of ice cream and she was pleased.

    We went for the Chef's Tasting menu and was veryyyyy disappointed by the dishes that were chosen. It was like paying for overpriced chinese take out. We expected for the dishes to be at least a little unique. Stir fry beef w pepper, fish fillet, and salt and pepper pork with pepper? Boring.....If we ever decide to come back it would be to try out their hotpot.

    Atmosphere is impersonal and odd, especially in terms of decor. Food was okay, but nothing out of the ordinary amazing. Service was indifferent and then actually bad. The best thing about it was the Dan Dan Noodles which resembled Pasta Bolognese. So, if you want pasta bolognese with an Asian accent, i guess this is your spot.

  • Great Non-Chinatown Find
    OutToLunchVIP
    Dined on 9/5/2014
    Often one is disappointed with the authenticity and/or quality of non Chinatown spots, but Jane G's is a terrific find in Center City. Comfortable, modern but thouroughly grounded in classic recipes, the food was delicious (the spice levels even accommodated my often disappointed heat loving dining partner as well as my more moderate tastes). The waitstaff was attentive and recommended dishes based on our interests. The dumpling sampler was a nice first dish for two, I had the chicken dry pot at spice leve 3 which was hot but not overwhelming to the other spices in the dish. Definitely much on the menu to explore on future visits.

    Jane G is a solid Chinese restaurant that serves an array of food with fresh ingredients and different levels of spiciness. Service is excellent and the atmosphere comfortable. It could improve by not making entrees sweet, but letting them stand on their on. Other than this, it's a welcome addition in center city.

    We have rediscovered Jane G's this past year. The food is consistently good, and I love that we can regulate the "hottness" of certain food items. For example, the dumplings we had at level 4 were really hot for us, but we loved it. The rock shrimp were great, as was the spring rolls. The entree my husband had was great not only the first time, but for his lunch the next day. We are true fans, and have become regulars.

    My husband and I dined here Saturday evening. We shared the popcorn shrimp and pork dumplings appetizers. Generous portions and each was good but the shrimp was really good. We then split Kung pao pork with a 3 hotness. That was just right for us and left a nice tingle on the palate after eating. The ambiance inside is quite nice and the seating is very comfortable. This is not the run of the mill Chinese restaurant. A very enjoyable evening all around.

    My second time here! Brought my dad her for a belated Father's day dinner. Everyone was good the ONLY weird thing was, for some reason, when we first sat down the bus boy came and took our cloth napkins?? also the wine glasses?? why? did he somehow thought those napkins and wine glasses was for decoration? Everyone else had cloth napkins... Otherwise the food was great and our server was pretty attentive :) Next time i'll be back to try their hot pot!
