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

Every time my dad comes to visit me, we always go to Jacks Satay Bar. It's reliable and affordable and we always leave saying "YUUUUM"

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.

This place is an institution. I have been going here from as far back as I can remember - as a kid with family, as a uni student with friends, now as an adult with my family, and the teenage kids love it. A lovely family operated business. Food NEVER disappoints. Pleasant surroundings. Malaysian food in Melbourne doesn't get any... More
