Jia Modern Chinese & Asian Lounge
$5 happy hour from 4pm-7pm at the bar and the lounge.
This is one of go-to spots for a consistently good experience.
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.
Have been here twice now and the food has been outstanding! The kids tried sushi for the first time and loved it! Definitely will go back
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.
Excellent food. Owner is extremely kind and friendly. She makes you feel very welcome. Food is amazing, we'll be regular customers.
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!
My new fave!!!! Upstairs we danced to live music and had a blast!
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.
This place has great food and great service!
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.
The food was great!
Food is fantastic... and the smoked Old Fashion is the best I’ve ever had!
Everything was great! Music a little loud on the patio especially w elderly guest.
This is our favorite Chinese restaurant in Dallas . They have live music on the weekends , great service and the food is amazing !
Salt and pepper shrimp!!!!!
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.
The restaurant was operating at 100% capacity- definitely not in accordance with the 50% occupancy we thought we would be dining in.
Everything was so good!! Great service and atmosphere. The food is amazing!
Great food. Fast and friendly service.
Our appetizers were late. We asked for a manager and they never came to discuss our concerns.
LOVE JIA!!!!! We sat upstairs and had a ball!!! Would totally recommend going! We went on a Saturday and they had great live music!! The food is amazing too!!!!
The best salt and pepper shrimp I've had. I want to order some now just thinking about it!
Great experience as always! Looking forward to having the live music back in the near future.
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.
The food, service and value were excellent. This was our first time but we will definitely return.
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.
They ran out of Chinese food. WTF?
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.
We went for Christmas Eve and had the best time. The staff was so friendly and gave us superb service. Food was excellent!
Beat Tuna tower ever!!!!!
It was great! The food was excellent and the service was fantastic. The vibe was so chill but elevated. Can’t wait to go back!
First time surprise how good it was
