Awesome Asia food! The best pad thai... the snapper was rather small... but the prawn entrees were the best!

Had the fish of the day - snapper. It was fresh and delicious. Wish they were open more for lunch, but based on the very sparse crowd, I can understand why they don't.

Excellent Thai type restaurant. Service is outstanding. You simply have to have the lobster tail in Thai curry sauce!

We love Asian food anyway but the experience at Bamboo Jacks is quite special. The Indoor restaurant is spacious and attractively laid out. Had it been a warmer evening we would have sat in the courtyard, admiring the fountain whIch features a life size Buddha.

We are locals and visit Bamboo Jacks about once a month for a meal. The food is consistently good with reasonable portions (probably a bit small for Cook Islanders, but plenty for pretty much everyone else LOL), Food is hot, staff are pleasant and, by Cook Islands standards, the service is good :-)
