Great food had best time!

Great food! I went with my friends and everyone loved it. I can’t understand why people give bad reviews on this website because I didn’t found anything wrong there. We ordered lots of verity of food and all of them were really tasty. Customer service was good as well. I am going with my family on this weekendJ.

Mad and Rich Chocolate Cake

Worst linguine.

I was at Mad Jack Cafe because the price looked affordable and the menu was relatively attractive. The food left me in great disappointment. I had a Linguine Carbonara ($9.9) which came with mushrooms and ham. The linguine was grossly overcooked - it was soft! This won't do! The carbonara cream sauce was also EXTREMELY watery, though not diluted. My guess is they added lots of salt or MSG into the sauce. I've never eaten such substandard linguine carbonara before. The chicken ham was obviously those from the supermarkets. Overall, extremely disappointing. 

I also had their Mad and Rich Chocolate Cake under the recommendation of the staff there when I asked what's their speciality. True enough, the cake was very rich and worth the money at $4.80. There was fudge, and some ganache in between the 2 layers. The cake helped the cafe regain some plus points but it was not enough to entice me to return. Certainly won't recommend this place!

Terrible food

Aglio was drenched with olive oil and lacking flavor. Fish & chips looked huge but it's mostly just batter. Disappointing

Average at best but its standard seemed to have dropped.

We went there for a really late dinner since we were really hungry but did not feel like eating at the nearby coffee shop. It is a great disappointment that the standard of the food seemed worse than my previous visit. However, I could no longer bother that night because of the hunger.

Highlights of the Meal:

Mushy Mushy - Fried button mushrooms that were surprisingly huge and juicy. The only saving grace of our meal.

Grilled Barramundi with Cajun Seasoning in Cream Sauce - The fish was overcooked and tasteless. The sauce only helped a very little bit. A far cry from the Grilled Fish in Honey Lemon Sauce I had a few months before at the same outlet.

What the fish!

Horrible is just an understatement to describe our experience at mad jack jln kayu the place was relatively empty but food came only 40min later and when it finally came they mixed up the order! The waiter gave our food to another table and when our food came only they realized they made a mistake! The pinoy manager is just useless no initiative and didn't even apologize! The funny thing is they managed to serve the correct food 5 min later and yet we waited 40min before that. As for dessert had to ask 3 times before it finally came. Talk about foreign talent manager just plain useless bump. When we came in had ttdkevmrnoursrlve menu ourselves no one Bother to serve us. Swear never to set foot there ever again!

I will recommend

Me and my friends had a feast at this restaurant and I would rate it five stars. The waiters were so friendly and polite. The atmosphere was so calm and most important the food tasted great. We got our table in the corner which was very private and overall it was fabulous. I would recommend to this everyone. I know no one will be disappointed to visit this restaurant.
