Popped in for a quick dinner

Heading back late from appointment in the CBD we decided to revisit Jacks for a quick meal. After not dining there for at least 15 years we were pleasantly surprised that it was still top notch. Just opting for mains only, we shared a spicy noodle dish, traditional chicken curry, coconut rice and... read more

Service was as expected, entrees good, mains average, tough beef in Massaman curry ( should have sent it back ) . Worst rip off. $12 per litre bottle of well known brand of sparkling mineral water which costs less than $3 in a supermarket. I have never been charged that much in any restaurant before and the settings were much... More

We visited jacks satay bar for the first time and we were very pleased with our dining experience at this lovely restaurant. The food was beautiful from the marinated roti rolls to our lovely mains. Service was excellent from the waiters clearing our tables quite quickly and by ensuring our drinks were always full. We eat out every weekend at... More

Food was ok, but I would suggest slightly over priced and longer wait than expected Wouldn't rush back

We live in Bendigo, a couple of hours from Melbourne. Five or six times a year we travel to Melbourne just to have lunch at Jack's, be it for a special occasion or 'just because'. John and the staff are fantastic and the food is simply to die for! What more needs to be said?

What else can be said? You wouldn't go back to a place over and over if you didn't like it. John and the crew provide not only amazing food, but welcome you with open arms. Old favourites like roti rolls are a signature but they also compliment all the other brilliant things you can find on the menu. Well done,... More
