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

I'm impressed with this buzzy place with a great atmosphere and a great menu. There is a great variety but their seafood is wonderfully done with a Malaysian influence. There are some excellent curries to choose from also. The wine list is not extensive but is adequate. The service is excellent.. friendly, accommodating and attention to detail.

We have been many times, the food is great and can be done just as you like it. This place is well worth a visit. Make sure you book at the week ends or you won't get a table

I had a weekday evening meal here, the food was very average but the service was good. Would I go there again? yes maybe, just to give it another chance and see if it has improved.
