Lea Sanchez had Roastbeef, Carbonara, and Fish and Chips

The food was awesome. They are all serve hot and the fish are fresh. The beef was so tender and the carbonara sauce was creamy and tasty. The food here is also worth it.

Dem Entia

Dem Entia had bangus a la kieve and pasta fries and steak mushroom soup

The Bad: Me and my friend had just jogged and were tired and understandably hungry. So you would expect us to be on devour mode. But what we ordered at Kangaroo Jack failed to wow us. The bangus a la kieve (fancy name for nothing) tasted bland, the veggies seemed uncooked--one Baguio bean looked yellow-green and raw even, the tiny corn cob tasted like it was cooked the day before, and the java rice, again, bland. I can make a better-tasting curry rice or turmeric rice than that tasteless yellow-orange lump they served me.
Meanwhile, the pasta, fries, steak, and soup combo meal was just as uninspired. The pasta sauce had nothing else in it--no meataballs, not even ground beef, or bell peppers, NONE. Just red sauce. (Would it hurt them to sautee garlic and onion or anything for the sauce?) The fries tasted ordinary, and the steak was a joke. We weren't even asked if we wanted it rare, medium-rare, or well-done You could easily see yourself achieving the same result of steak at home at your most laziest. The mushroom soup was probably the only food that was ok.
In the end, we got up, food unfinished, plate still half-full. Remember I mentioned we were supposed to be hungry. And even if it's not my style to leave rice uneaten on my plate--not even when I'm eating at home, this particular time I just felt like walking out.
When we walked out of the door, none of the three staff who were standing there said thank you at all, or come back again, etc, the usual pleasantries. (We had changed into good clothes so we can't see any reason why they should be so surly.) If you had just dined on practically tasteless food, the staff being nice and friendly should at least mitigate the experience, but in this case, they were just pathetic.
And they had the nerve to include service charge in the bill!
Don't be fooled by the fake Australian ambiance. Australian cuisine should be more exciting than that--it coming being a hodgepodge of cultures--but to be honest Kangaroo Jack is just like a glorified carinderia.

The Good: None

Advice: Eat at Racks instead. The food is great, and even the prices are on the expensive side, it's all worth it. The manager there went to our table to inquire whether we were enjoying the food, and of course we said Yes. At Kangaroo Jack, no one dared ask us.

Bad smell bad taste

Me and my gf ate for the first time to this resto last week. we had a buffet. their callos is awful! sobrang langsa ng amoy at di mo makain sa baho. pati yung spicy beef nila may amoy! bastos din yung dalawang babaeng waitress na panay ang tayo sa harap namin, at nagpaparinig pa na kunwari kausap nya ung kasama nyang babae na no left over daw... at mahilig sila tumingin sa mga customer nila. which is annoying!! napansin kasi nya na nawalan kami ng gana ng gf ko dahil may amoy ung food nila. amoy luma! di na kami babalik sa resto na to...

There is nothing unique in the taste of their food. The ambiance was good, the design and the style of the place suits the name Kangaroo Jack which makes me think of Indiana Jones and the jungle. The service was so-so there were a lot a crew members just standing and doing nothing that kinda annoys me.

Food: we ordered calamares, steak and egg, and baby back ribs. calamares seemed to be re-cooked. steak is like chewing gum. their baby back ribs is the worst baby back ribs that i ever ate sobrang laki ng litid ng baby back ribs nila, akala mo two pieces yung baby back na nilagay sa sizzling plate, pero ung isang piraso dun ang litid, sus! tinalo ang daliri ko sa paa sa laki. yung steak nila sabi ng bf ko talo pa ang bazooka chewing gum. magkaka-jaw lock ka sa sobrang "chewable" ng steak nila.

Service: so far ok naman, mabilis dumating yung food. yung staff sa rp manila ok din, except dun sa isang crew nila na babae tingin ng tingin sa bf ko as if wala ang gf.

Ambiance: ok din ang ambiance. sana naging food nalang ang ambiance kasi yun lang ang ok sa kanila.

Value: aanhin mo naman kung mura? maeengganyo ka kasi pagkakita mo sa menu nila kasi super mura ng steak, pero isusumpa mo once na kinain mo na. sakin dibali na mahal basta ok ang food.

not worth the money

1

- food was so-so (not spectacular steak; friggin cold food served; taste of food is dull and oily)
- service was bad (waiter needs to be re-trained for 1 week; poor customer relations)
- not worth the money spent
- so not going here again

We ate at kangaroo Jack to celebrate my father's birthday last week.Their food isn't as unique as I thought. It is just like the smell of the steak of our neighbor(which is undoubtedly delicious). I remembered one of their employees asked me whether how I like my steak to be cooked"Medium-rare, rare or well-done.". I asked for a rare cooked steak but what I ate was well-done almost burnt. The worst part of it is their utensils are hardly dull. I think the only food I have in my plate that it can cut is the vegetables. But it wasn't my treat so why complain. Even their buffet is not in the satisfactory level. All of the food's in the buffet table doesn't jive with it's taste. It's just like what you pay is what you get.

Good Food, Good Taste & Good Service

This place is good. The service is fast, food is hot, tasty and tender. Me and my wife,ordered stake & pasta , cheese sticks and sisig. We enjoyed eating.
The service is good, however still needs to be improved. Store was about to close, there were 2 other customers still finishing up, just like us, when the waiter/attendant handed us the bill, without excusing himself.I thought my wife asked for the bill already, but she did not.
But all in all, I still want to treat my family back there. Hopefully, service will be improved.
