Looking for a new Asian restaurant and heard about Jia Modern. Parking was abundant and in front. We were quickly seated on an early Saturday evening and all of the staff wore masks. The noise level was never an issue and the waiter was very efficient and checked with us several times. We started with the ahi tuna tostadas which were delicious and the spiciness perfect. Once we ordered the main course it was presented almost immediately; could have used a few minutes to savor the appetizer! Suggest ordering your main course when ready to eat it. The crispy beef was superb as written by others. Would highly recommend. The Singapore rice noodle was also superb and is highly recommended. The curry sauce was perfect. We will return to try the other portions of the menu, especially the sushi and dumplings.

We thought the food was great, but the service was lacking. We literally had to wave our arms to get someone’s attention each time we needed something. Also, and this is minor, the bathroom was very dirty. The ledge around the room was covered in dust and the vent on the ceiling looked like it hadn’t been wiped down in years. It made me think of what the kitchen must look like.

The food here never disappoints! We have not tried their sushi before, but will definitely be eating it again. I had the salt & pepper prawns, and they were perfect. This is our new go-to restaurant.

As good as any Asian food restaurant in Dallas. Hardly ever crowded. Fast service, excellent food and easy in/out parking. Highly recommend.

Fairly good with great, and reasonably priced, wine list. Along with a couple of sushi items- which were fantastic, we got two very basic dishes which were...very basic. not much flavor even with one of them being listed as spicy. As some of the first diners of the evening we were surprised that the waiter & kitchen couldn't coordinate dinner coming out before we were done with apps. "Energetic" sound rating given as we were there for dinner - not to be trippin on "X", dancing to loud, monotonous, electronica.

The level of service was the worst. The waiter tended other tables before tending us in spite that we were seated first. Half the order was delivered to the table. While I waited, the table next to us was delivered it’s meal. Had to shout at him to get his attention. Did not clear the plates, ask about dessert or bring the ticket. His attitude towards us was unacceptable, unprofessional, and down right rude towards my mother and I. Brought this up with manger. Never again will I dine here.

Best Chinese food in Dallas hands-down! Service is good, and the live music on the weekends is great and the food never disappoints. The calamari is the best I have found. The tuna nachos are a must try. Seabass, Kung pao shrimp, and Mongolian beef are amazing. My son really loves the orange chicken.

The staff is aloof. The atmosphere downstairs needs improvement. Food menu good. Wait staff not well informed. Drinks excellent. The 2nd level may be better atmosphere. We dine out weekly many weeks 2/3 times per week. Expect the best on Saturday

We LOVE Jia! This is not the first, second or third time we’ve been there, but every time it’s an enjoyable experience. And this time - it had been about 18 months since we were back due to a relocation, and guess what? The manager remembered our drinks! Just another reason we love Jia!

I love Chinese food and this was the best I've had in a very long time. The food was excellent - I got the hot and sour soup which wasn't too spicy - just the way I like it. Then for the entrée I got Cashew chicken which was full of nutty cashews, lots of chicken and other vegetables. Again best I've ever had!
Service was spectacular - courteous, friendly server and the food came just when it was supposed to. The restaurant is really beautiful and me and my guests had a wonderful time.
Highly recommend this place if you love old-fashioned chinese food.

Open table showed available reservations until 9:00. We made ours for 8:30 and arrived at 8:28. Upon entry, we where informed that we had 2 minutes to place an order because the kitchen was closing. We had looked at menu and knew what we wanted so quickly ordered, as we’d already Uber’d to restaurant and where hungry. Food was fantastic but experience was rushed - we where in and out in barely more than half an hour.

If you’re going to close the kitchen @ 8:30, don’t take reservations past 8:00 and certainly not until 9:00.

We have been to Jia a few times and this visit will make us rethink coming back. While the food is good - the connection with us and our server was never really made. She struggled to understand us and what we wanted. It was just so much work and too many errors. The meal was longer than it should have been due to the errors.

We appreciated the fact that COVID guidelines are being enforced , however the fact that our reservations were so far behind was disappointing. We were happy with the service and food though. Perhaps the feedback is to call patrons if they are running behind.

This place is a trainwreck. I've tried to go twice. The first time they were out of Chinese food. Really? The second time I made another reservation on OpenTable, showed up on time only to be told that they closed 15 minutes earlier. I showed the Manager my confirmation and was basically told- tough luck. I will never darken their door again.

Waiter was attentive and friendly. We got the orange chicken. Had a very orange fruit tangy flavor. Not what we expected but was alright when combined with the fried rice.

I ordered the mah tai, tasted like juice. Didn’t taste much rum or liquor. My date had the lemon drop, she thought it was too bitter.

Service was poor.... they were overwhelmed. The workers were doing what they can but they had too much on their plate. To the management..... don't be greedy... have enough waiters for the tables. Half of our food came cold. We sat there first, waiting to order, then for the food to arrive, then to pay.
