The satay tasted just as I remember it from stays in Singapore and Malaysia. The noodles (Hokkien mee and Singapore bee noon), not as authentic but still very good.

We came for take away and were helped to pick the best things on the menu that would suit us, were shown to the bar to wait where we had had some great wine and the food was ready very fast for us to take. Once home we were very happy with the quality and amount of food

It's very important the food keeps it's flavour once at home. I am so glad we chose well for you and look forward to seeing again sometime. Jack More

Came here for take away lunch one day as i work around the corner, the service was good very friendly and well mannered. I would only recommend if you were hungry because portions were small. Food was average at best!

Hi, Thanks for coming in for lunch, I am sorry that you felt we were "average" but we strive to have fresh, authentic Malaysian food and we have succeeded over the past 27 years. We have never had a complaint about the size of our meals before, perhaps you ordered only entrees thinking that it was a main course. Please... More

A place that does what it says, great satay, great for couples or large groups. Not too expensive, great satay (worth a second mention) order extra on the side is a must. Asian food and some western, a good bar as well. Had great service.

Nothing but praise for Jacks Satay Bar. The satay's are to die for, whether meat or chicken. Te establishment is not over large and has the ambiance to cover whatever your mood is on the night.

Thank you Goblin 55 for your great review. We try hard to make the ambiance relaxing and comfortable, and yes our satay's are the best, they are actually my mothers' family recipe!
