Meet The Perth Indies, The Jade Garden

Meet Linda Chan

One of Perth’s longest standing restaurants spanning back three generations of Chans to 1975, The Jade Garden is now under the care of Linda who has been pacing the floor of the famed Scott Street restaurant since the day she could walk.

Recently, her own son has joined the ranks of part time staff, learning the ropes and welcoming in the customers who first sat down to eat with his Grandfather and Grandmother, two much loved faces in Perth’s restaurant scene and vibrant Chinese community.

“We are one of the oldest establishments in Perth and have a long list of very loyal customers, many who we now call friends and family.  Christmas is especially wonderfully with lots of our regulars joining us for a Chinese style celebration!”

Serving up authentic, tasty Chinese food with popular favourites such as Crispy Duck, Prawn Satay and Chicken Fried Rice all sitting alongside their speciality dishes. Ask anyone who has grown up local to Perth and they will tell you of the sheer joy of sitting down to a Jade Garden Banquet – turntable included! 

Opening Hours: 

  • Tuesday -Thursday 12am -2pm,  5pm -9pm
  • Friday - Saturday 12pm -2pm,  5pm -10pm
  • Sunday 5pm -10pm 

Quick Fire Questions With Linda Chan

What is your favourite product from your own shop?  
I know it’s a bit predictable but it really is the crispy duck and pancakes. I love it! 

What would be at the top of your wish list from another Perth Indie?
As someone who is tied to a restaurant, I would love a meal voucher from Parklands so I can get out and enjoy the other side of life for a while!

Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead?
My mum. Many people will remember her as the backbone of the Jade Garden and the wider Chinese Community in Perth. So many people came through the Jade Garden to get their training before heading out to open their own restaurant or takeaway; safe in the knowledge they had learned all they needed to know from Mrs Chan!

What will you be most grateful for / looking forward to this Christmas?
For everyone I know to stay happy and healthy.
