No surprises at Jack's. It has a standard menu that you can expect in 99% of Chinese restaurants in Victoria. It was busy and the food was hot .. Other than the dying Koy in the fish tank next to us it had OK ambience. Overall another average Chinese food restaurant in Victoria.

A report in the Toronto Sun says: “Based on Amazon.ca sales of romance novels, sex and relationship books, romantic comedy DVDs and Michael Buble CDs since Jan. 1, pretty Victoria -- the retirement capital of British Columbia -- is No. 1 in the love department.” This is apparent when we see young couples, opting to spend a honeymoon or just...

I was incredibly happy to find this place close to my home, with good service, decent food, and nice prices. The war wonton is to die for, and a great value. I like their hotpots, as well, especially the tofu and meat. I haven`t tried their north american style chinese food, so I can`t vouch for that, but they seem... More

Jacks' chinese restaurant may not look like much, but mywife and I try to eat here at least once a month. Friends of ours first recommende it about 5 years ago, and we have been Steady customers ever since. A well varied menu, (in English) prompt service, and a continuous flow of hot green tea, are just some of the... More

We had our favorite Chinese restaurant close 6 years ago. We searched and tried many in Greater Victoria. Finally, after 2 years we found Jacks and its just 1/2 mile down the road! The price is less than what we were used to. The food is hot, fresh and delicious. Try Jack's and you will not be disappointed.

Tried this restaurant based on their reviews on urbanspoon. All tables full and a steady crowd coming in ... So good sign that things would be good. Placed my order and was told twenty minutes... Well got the to go order fifty minutes later. What i was hearing from others as they waited for their orders made me think this... More
