Bad food and Bad response – My takeout Sweet and Sour Chicken had virtually no chicken in it - it was mostly dried out skins and batter. I call back and they promise to make me another one with meat in it, but it still does not. The guy handing me the food opens up the container and breaks open a piece and sure enough nothing but the batter. Then someone else, a manager?, comes out and opens up another piece and finds a dried piece of skin sliver. He didn't apologize. The sauce which was in a separate container smelled fowl and the pineapple tasted like it was rotten. I don't expect them to put the best quality chicken breast meat in their food, but I did expect to find some chicken meat in there somewhere.
Horrible Manager Vo – Today is the last time I try to give this place a chance, due to their bad Manager..Over the past three years I have dropped in alone and with others, and I am the only stubborn hold out in the bunch..The Manager Vo is a egotistical and arrogant Man and the two do not belong together when You are running a Restaurant..He comes off as evn tepng within te Restaurant that You have bothered him and put him out..Unless I hate to say You are Asian, and then he seems to give a warm Welcome..I have come in only to have others that are after me that are Asian be seated and their take out orders taken first while there are many seats available and I stand there looking like a fool..Today being the last, as I walked out without anything for the last time..Funny thing is he Shows he could care less that he lost Your business, nor could care less that You even came in, in the first place...I wonder if the Owners knw what a Jerk they have hired and all of the Business they losedue t this unfriendly Manager..He could care less and it shows..Other than that eating in with Friends and Family, they come around and ask over and over before You even get a chance to enjoy what You just chose..Manager has taken my take out orders with his chip on his shoulder and I have gotten all the way home on the Max and Bus and everytime my order has been wrong..Too bad that if they wuld get friendlier Wait Staff an Management their business would go through the roof....Until then, save Your $$$$$$ and go somewhere else
Terrible! – It is very rude and weird that the manager refuses to let my husband and my 18-year-old boy and me in, just because I am holding a glass of baby formula milk in my hand. He says no outside food! I understand what is normally meant when restaurant says no outside food; however, this is baby formula milk. It is a terrible experience!
Fantastic! – I have been going to Jin Wah for at least 5 years now and absolutely love this place. Great dim sum, fantastic pho and you must try both the salt & pepper squid and chinese broccoli. Great service too! A must try place for lovers of dim sum.
Don't know why there's a ton of bad reviews... – I really disagree with all the negative comments. I've been going to the Jin Wah near the Beaverton TC since 2007 and the service has always been amazing. Some of the best tasting Chinese and Vietnamese food. Their dimsum is amazing, a little spendy, but so worth it. If you're sick, try one of their pho bowls. It has refreshed me on numerous occasions after eating. I also recommend their salt and pepper squid. SOOO AMAZING!
Very bad service! – We use to always go there until one day. My husband and I decided to go during lunch. Wasn't too busy. We had to wait as least 10 mins to get sit. Took them forever to take our order. When we finally got our food, all the staff was waiting over our shoulders like they wanted us to hurry up and eat then leave. The service was so bad we decided not to leave a tip. At the time when we payed the cashier, another employee asked to see if we left a tip in chinese, and the cashier replied "no" in chinese. Hello we may not chinese but we may understand. After that we decided never to go there again and it's been a couple of years. We found a better place in Hillsboro. The Portland restaurant is the same! BE AWARE! DON'T EVER WASTE YOUR MONEY THERE!
Excellent dim sum, hot, but a bit spendy – You know when a place is filled with the same ethnic customers as the food it's serving, the food will most likely be good. I was skeptical about it, due to the location, but decided to give it a try. Based on the poor reviews the others gave it, I can only guess that they have completely changed the way they do things. As a Chinese person who has grown up knowing good Chinese food, I can honestly say our dim sum was on par with some of the best we have had, even when comparing to areas near Vancouver Canada.
All dishes were steaming hot and fresh, and the turnip cakes and steamed bows were some of the best I've ever had. I read one of the other reviewers who said the servers english was not very good and made that sound so horrible. While our servers had poor english, they were very friendly and patient while we ordered. Come on, if you go into an ethnic restaurant, don't you want real people of that ethnicity? I do.
All in all, we really enjoyed our lunch. I was a bit surprised at the $76 bill, which included 3 adults and 2 small children. After tip, we walked out at $86. For our family at least, that is a spendy lunch. $10-12 maximum per person is a luxury for us.
Anyway, don't be turned off by the other reviews, or at least give it a shot yourself. I normally go across town to Wong Kings, but this was closer and the food hotter. As far as cleanliness goes, we are neat freaks and hate dirty joints, and found this place very clean.
Bad Hygiene Standard. Be Prepared For Food poisoning – The first thing I notice after entering the restaurant is the air inside is a little smelly at certain spots. And the spoons and forks they put on table didn't seem to be that clean. I should have had left it right way. But I didn't, which proved to be a terrible mistake. After dinnng out at Jin Wah with my family last Saturday, both I, my wife and my mom got food poisoning sympotom. I vomitted 6 times from 9am to 2pm with my body trembling and also had diarhea frequently was so weak afterward that I have to stay bedresting for two days. My mom had the similar sympotoms for two days. Thank God, my daughter was fuzzy during dinner and didn't eat much.
Avoid it, unless you have a really strong stamach.
Very Disappointed – This was the worst restaurant dining experience we have had in years....not only was the service bad (nobody understood english) but the General Tso's and Garlic Spareribs were almost unedible. Will never go back.
Don't bother – If you KNOW dim sum, this is horrible. If you don't, it's still horrible because you will never know what REAL dim sum tastes like. Take the time to travel to the east side of Portland and get a real Dim Sum meal.
