Malaysian-born chef Steve Yau grew up on spicy lemak chicken and flavorful curries. He brings these recipes and a decade of professional culinary experience to Crystal Jade Restaurant, whose authentic Malaysian food has been lauded as "standout" by the Omaha World Herald. The versatile chef/magician also extends his culinary expertise to a variety of Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Thai dishes, as well as flavorful Indian biryani rice. He also dedicates two entire menus to gluten-free and vegan selections, for which he cooks with a gluten-free brown sauce and swaps out meats for tofu, imitation duck, or a wide variety of vegetables. One of the chef favorites, peanut butter tofu, features golden chunk tofu sautéed in peanut butter sauce. In addition, Steve is known to adorn most dishes with hand-carved veggie sculptures such as palm trees, flowers, and others.

The Chinese section offers an even more diverse assortment of spicy dishes. In fact, one-third of the entrées pack a fiery punch. Among them is the hot garlic shrimp, a dish that lets diners soak up hot garlic sauce with various veggies before taking the remaining sauce home to fill up their water pistols.
