Had food twice from here, nothing to write home about. So many of these places in this area you wonder how they all survive. Might give it one more shot considering it just opened. They seem to be big on curry dishes. I'll agree with another review, when it was Galaxy it was very good.

We have been here twice recently, and both times we were very pleased with the food. The Bee Bong is fantastic-- comes with a crispy egg roll and a dollop of coconut cream on top of the bowl. The scorpion bowls are great also! Our server was great both times.

This place used to be pretty decent when it was part of the Jacky's Galaxie chain. I went here for a quiet Mother's Day dinner and was extremely disappointed. Scallion pancakes were more like fried dough you buy at the fair; virtually no scallions. My Vietnamese Beebong had a small hair in it. My overall thought about the food was... More

It was my first time here and wow I'm impressed. The crab rangoon was the best. They make their own sauces which is a plus. I plan to be a regular there now. My sister ordered a dish with no m.s.g and gluten free and they gladly modified. Great experience!

I've been a regular here for years and the food is great. It's flavorful and fresh. The service is excellent. I had the nime chow as an appetizer as well as the house pad thai and general tso's chicken. Got to have the scorpion bowl. Everything was the best I ever had. Definitely a gem in RI.

We loved this place when it was the Galxey. Now the food is not fresh, it is not seasoned well, the staff is not friendly, orders get mixed up. I have tried it many times since the change, but the last time the food tasted so old, I think it came from a can, I don't think I will go... More

I enjoy Jack's though it does not stand out as it once did. I don't think Jack's is less than it once was, but there is more good competition, e.g. very good Dim Sum right down the street. Jack's sushi is very good as are many of the Thai dishes. The Chinese dishes I have tried were not impressive.

This place used to be one of my favorites. The food was always fresh and plated beautifully. The last three times I've gone in, the service has been practically nonexistent. The meals were missing ingredients. Tried ordering three different cocktails off the menu but they were missing part of the recipe so couldn't make them. This very last time, the... More
