Having grown up in Malaysia and a spouse from Penang, I was keen to order delivery dinner from this long term Malaysian restaurant. The chicken satay sticks were rubbery and tasteless, even when drowned in the bland peanut sauce. The Char Keow Teow was so overwhelmed by dark soy sauce that one needed to bite carefully to distinguish what bits... More

I am very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our food. I will say though that as you ordered the food to take away, it does lose some flavour and is best eaten in the restaurant, perhaps you could come and try us again before you pass judgement. We have been here 25 years, and it is extremely unusual for... More

Love coming here! Great food, service and cocktails! Tried out the new tasting plate for $20 p.p. 6 entrees and a dessert! Great value but still got the Ducksi Goreng and Sizzling Beef for a main because they're always delicious! Highly recommend to everyone!

We have driven past this place a few times and it was always full, so we thought we really should give it a go and see what kept the place so busy. I'm glad we did. This is a very good Malaysian restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is delicious. We started with satays, prawn balls and curry... More

Been coming here for over 25 years, and the newer entrants in the area have meant visits have been less frequent. Re-acquainted tonight, and it was faultless. Must get it back on the radar. Wide variety, delicious foods. Good drinks list. Attentive service. Great coffee too. This is the place to keep on the "regular" visit list for sure.

Authentic flavours, great staff and a menu that covers all bases. We have been long time returning customers who rarely go more than a few weeks between visits. We have eaten Satay in many countries and honestly still rate Jacks as the best. Each time we bring friends along, they also fall in love with the restaurant. To top it... More
