“Great Value and Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Bamboo Jack's is an oriental themed restaurant serving various styles of food. The staff were amazingly attentive and very friendly. You have to order the Deep Fried Bananas served with Ice Cream...but you may have to take a 'doggy-bag' home!! Thanks guys!!

“Delicious asian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were hoping to dine at Tamarind house, but as it was Sunday, they were closed. So we went to Bamboo Jacks instead. The restaurant is new looking, with fresh modern decor and indoor / outdoor dining areas. Our selection of food was lovely, very tasty and fresh. The kids enjoyed the satay sticks and rice, while we sampled a couple of curries and shared an entree plate comprising a thai fish cake (nicely spicy), a chicken satay skewer, and three pork and shrimp dumplings.

Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!

We had a lovely meal here and it seemed popular with locals and tourists alike. The food was reasonably priced and the service was friendly too.
