Nestled into a cobblestone square just off Austin Street, Jade Eatery & Lounges’ address hints at why Jade is said to be “Forest Hills hidden gem”. The space integrates a zen-like atmosphere with inspirational quotes that adorn the walls and a serene koi pond presenting a large Buddha statue smiling benevolently on guests guiding them to a choice entree.
Our philosophy was to combine music, aroma and aesthetics to capture a unique gastronomic experience hence our motto “Indulge Your Senses”.
As a neighborhood Asian restaurant catering to local and visiting patrons we strive to maintain quality and consistency. Our concept provides favorite Pan-Asian and southeast Asian dishes as well as creative culinary innovations that have become neighborhood favorites. With signature dishes like Sushi Pizza and Calcutta Chicken, our group focuses on optimizing select ingredients and transforms them into exotic flavor profiles. That is our committed culinary mission.
Our guests can choose to dine in the main dining room or the copper bar which offers more seating options and cabana beds. The area is illuminated with a warm glow while draped silk separates it from the main dining area creating an intimate lounge space. Our guests can also enjoy the al fresco dining experience tucked away in the Tudor-style, cobble stoned village that is Station Square.
Designed to accommodate large groups, the Dharma Lounge provides a private venue with an open floor plan that offers flexibility in the layout, perfect for special events such as wedding receptions, commitment ceremonies, bar/bat mitzvahs, and corporate dinners. It has been elegantly furnished with Moroccan imports to offer a cultural haven for guests seeking something extraordinarily special.
Connecting the copper bar to the Dharma lounge, Jades’ Art Gallery and World Shop combines art and culture with a distinct culinary experience. Supporting neighborhood artists, the Art Gallery hosts bi-monthly exhibits showcasing a variety of local talent. Private and public previews of the art installations are hosted regularly. The World Shop features collectibles from around the globe such as custom jewelry, hookahs and Buddhas.
Located directly across the LIRR station, the 8,000 sq ft restaurant has become a popular destination spot since its opening in 2006. Just one block separates it from the crowds and boutiques on Austin Street.
“Something of the terraced garden effect of the northern section of Italy. Station Square is one of the most successful public spaces in New York City, certainly equal or superior in design and effect to something like the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan.” -House Beautiful Magazine (1914)
