Stress Reliever
Just OK 2013-06-06
What is the best way to relieve stress but to eat and hang out with the team.

We had a long week at work and we all decided to give ourselves a treat. We have been talking about trying the nearest eat all you can buffet so Friday after shift, we went to KJ(kangaroo jack). We chose their eat all you can buffet for only 250 pesos.

Here's what we had:

pasta(cream sauce and tomato sauce)
pizza
cream of mushroom soup
fried chicken
nachos
turon

Their buffet also includes unlimited iced tea.

After several takes to the buffet, we went home with full tummys and bid goodbye to stress! smile

Kangaroo Jam
Smile 2013-06-06
My team and I went here to spend a small-scale gathering, that serves as our christmas party. So we had a really long table set up for us (18 heads) and we ordered all sorts of meals, from fish to steak.

The servings are good for the voracious eater. The taste is above average, if you're going to compare it to House of Minis or Snackaroo. But the ambiance, cliches the contest. We like that the band playing was good and that they are open for jamming with them... so we asked our dear Angie to sing for us! The crowd loved her performance and asked for more. So she sang a total of 3 songs, not only for our team, but for the whole crowd. What a happy christmas!

FIsh for friday!
Smile 2012-09-15
It was a friday night and rejille and I had a chance to have dinner here due to the fact that I made her mad waiting for

me to end my hospital duty that day. I treated her to the nearest restaurant which we could eat so I can put her out of

her misery of disappointment. That restaurant is kangaroo jack. smile

 

The menu consist of a lot of delicious offerings such as sizzlers, fish, meat and the oh so loved beer which is famous

for this place.

 

I ordered some butter cream dory which cost me only one hundred and forty pesos. I ordered the same dish for rejille

as well. The food is really good. Fresh and moist inside. I love the meal itself with a pairing of vegetables and rice to

complete the meal. Rejille really like it herself and get this she is not a fish lover herself. After the dinner, she got back

to her usual self and things between us got better. Thanks kangaroo jack for a wonderful meal. smile

An all out eating spree :)
Smile 2012-08-09

 

Rejille and I had the chance to visit Kangaroo Jack for their promo of eat all you can buffet consisting of a lot

foods that even a giant would surrender. For the price of just 169.00 pesos, you get to enjoy a pepporoni pizza,

pasta, fried chicken, soup, garlic bread, banana fritters and a bottomless ice tea. Now who wouldn't want that right?

Anyway all I want in this restaurant is the taste and the quality that they serve which rejille and I would want so that

we can enjoy and appreciate the things they cooked here in kangaroo jack. smile

 

 

I just love all of them although I haven't got the chance to take all the pictures. Nevertheless the pizza is just great. Just

the kind of pizza you would want on any pizza branch that you get to it. The banana fritters is a little bit small but it packs

a lot of sweetness and flavors that you can enjoy for dessert. This is just a summer promo though and I wouldn't know

if they still offer this kind of discount in other branches. But I would say this. The food in kangaroo jack is just phenomenal

indeed. smile

Go Aussie with Kangaroo Jack
Smile 2012-07-29
When looking for a place to have a great meal and drinks, along with some good music, head on the Kangaroo Jack. My friends and I discovered Kangaroo Jack while walking around the Araneta Center area. The exterior of the place looks interesting and there was a live band playing. We went in, asked for the menu, and saw their wide choices of dishes and drinks--from nachos to rice meals; juices and cocktails; beer and hard liquor. In Kangaroo Jack, I must really recommended the Nachos. It is a must-try! The prices of the meals and drinks in Kangaroo Jack is fine as well and the crowd is pretty decent. The live band adds a more lively (sometimes emotional, lol) ambiance into the place and customers can even request songs.

If you want a good place to dine and have a few drinks, with live music on the background, try Kangaroo Jack! And don't forget to order the nachos, you won't regret it!tongue

 Of course, kangaroos.

Cheap buffet
Smile 2011-12-30
My classmates and I were planning an eat-all-you can buffet since classes started. We were thinking Dad's or Yakimix but ended up at Kangaroo Jack. The restaurant is always packed so I guess we were lucky to have found a table. They have soup, nachos, rice meals and pasta. It's worth every penny.

Spending:
Approximately
Php200

Aye Mate!
Smile 2011-12-30
My cousin insisted on going to Kangaroo Jack so I had no choice but to go with her. So I ordered something different and went for a sizzling platter. I had their pork chop with gravy, corn and java rice. I was satisfied with this visit than my last visit. The staffs were more welcoming and the food tasted better. They were definitely improving.

Good Day, Mate! :-)
Smile 2011-12-21

Have you ever gone to a buffet where all you had to pay for was P170 rice and drinks included It was my first time to look at Kangaroo Jack's offers. The place was packed with people! The ceilings were filled with boomerangs and picture of kangaroos. It was pretty Australian-themed. Made me remember my days in Aussie.

I rushed to the only empty table in the entire restaurant. My friends and I were pretty lucky to even get a spot, so we were pretty psyched. The staff just put a receipt on the table stating how many we were and we were good to go!!

 

Their buffet area was located right by their windows where all the passers by to see. I was scanning the long table of food.

They had a huge basket of nachos with a bowl of tomatoes and onions and cheese sauce. I immediately got a saucer full of nachos, although exposed, the nachos were still very crunchy. I guess the basket gets finished pretty quick. They had bread, too.

 

Aha! I spotted a hot pot of soup in the corner. Their soup of the day was actually my favorite cream of mushroom soup. It was delicious. Very creamy and milky with a lot of mushrooms.

 

They also had chicken adobo and rice. It was very tasty.

 

And now, for my favorite dish on the buffet table - the pasta!
I loved their spicy tuna pasta, it was very saucy and meaty. It was really spicy, I could taste so much of the tomato and tuna, it was pretty intense.
In this picture, my side dish was mini turons on the side, it was sweet, I took a bite everytime my pasta was getting too spicy.

 

The pesto was my favorite. Full of green herbs and olive oil. It was very flavorful. Couldn't get enough of the nachos so I got another batch.

Kangaroo Jack had pizza, too. It gets finished on the buffet table quick so I wasn't able to get, too bad. For the drinks, ther were 2 towers of iced tea and a huge bucket of ice right in the center of the resto.

It was definitely a great deal with great food -- I wasn't disappointed. Thanks, Kangaroo Jack! :-)

Guess who's hopping in town
Just OK 2011-09-13
My friend and I were looking for a restaurant where we can have dinner. Our original plan was to have our food delivered so we could enjoy our meals more comfortably and since it was a Friday definitely restaurants, bars, and coffee shops will be packed.

 Kangaroo Jack

However, our stomach couldn't take it anymore so we went to where it was nearest.
Honestly, we where headed to a different restaurant but we both stopped abruptly at the same time in front of Kangaroo Jack because they have dinner buffet for P169.

We checked first what they were serving before making a decision. The food looked appealing so we agreed to stay here.

They actually have all sorts of food. They have two types of pasta (red and white), Hawaiian thin crust pizza, finger sandwiches that seems like chicken sandwich, nachos with salsa and liquid cheese, mushroom soup with croutons, crispy fried chicken, chicken adobo, rice, and small turon with chocolate sauce.

Based on the set menu, you'd definitely feel P169 was optimal because their buffet comes with bottomless iced tea. Other buffet that I have tried less than P200 doesn't come with drinks.

Since it was really affordable and a lot of people were there, there were times that you need to literally wait for like 10 minutes before the food will be replenished. sad

 Kangaroo's Chicken Adobo with rice

For my first plate, I got what was left. Instead of waiting for the refill, I took few pieces of fried chicken, couple of adobo chicken, rice that looked like paella, and mushroom soup. I also got some finger sandwiches.

Both of the chickens were good. I enjoyed eating them with the paella-like rice. The finger sandwiches were okay as well. Actually, I have no idea what was inside but I tasted a little bit of mayonnaise. That was what lacking in the buffet table...labels. You need to guess what you are eating.

 Kangaroo's Pasta and Chicken

When the entire table was replenished, I hurried back so I could try their pasta. I took a small portion of white and red sauce pasta so I could taste them both before it will run out. Also, I got more of their Crispy Fried Chicken, nachos with salsa and liquid cheese, and another slice of their pizza.

White Sauce Pasta was okay. Nothing special. It was just any common white sauce pasta. As for the red sauce pasta, it was okay also but it was too spicy. I think the topping they used was spicy tuna. It was a good thing that I didn't get a lot of serving otherwise, I'll be paying twice the amount. They really should put some labels there because what if one of their customers is allergic to any ingredients but didn't know since there wasn't any label. For safety purposes as well.

The nachos were okay too. I didn't expect that it would still be crunchy because it was, after all, exposed the whole time. The salsa was a little bit spicy because of so many chopped onions were added. The liquid cheese was a little bit disappointing because it was so "watery". I expected a bit thickness.

 Kangaroo's Pizza

The Pizza is similar to other Hawaiian Thin Crust Pizza I buy locally. Not those pizza that you get from restaurants who have big names. Since it was super thin, I was able to eat probably three to four slices.

Turon with Chocolate sauce as a dessert was fine. Same with nachos, it was not crunchy anymore but the banana inside was sweet.

I give Kangaroo Jack's Buffet three spoons. Even if most of their food tasted ordinary but if you love eating especially chicken, P169 is enough.

Hop over to the buffet table
Just OK 2011-08-13

I'm never really a fan of eat all you can food because I get full pretty fast. One time boyfriend and I were going to meet up with friends and we got stuck in traffic and as we got to Cubao it was already 2pm and we were both pretty hungry and while looking for a place to eat, we found Kangaroo Jack along Araneta. We checked out the menu, but what caught our attention was the big tarpulin saying eat all you can for just Php169. Plus, the dishes listed seemed really delicious.

At first I decided to just order an ala carte but boyfriend said that the price seems to be same so I should just go for the eat all you can. Was it the right decision? well I could say I was full after eating but the taste, well, I had some favorites and some not so yummy.

The first thing I tried out was their soup which tasted like thick milk that is seasoned. First taste seemed ok but a couple of spoons after not so great.

Then after having soup I took some Nachos, Carbonara, beef and chicken. The Nachos was my favorite, then as for the Carbonara, I did not like because it was pretty cold. As for the beef (not sure what kind of dish it was haha) was delicious and tender. Then the chicken, the pieces were pretty two small, not even sure what parts they were, there were no drunstick, breast or thigh parts. Just small parts that I cannot identify. It had more breading than meat and pretty oily.

Then for dessert, they served turon with chocolate sauce. At first I thought it was spring rolls but when I saw the sauce, I realized that it was chocolate sauce so it was actually dessert haha. This was all delicious, the banana inside the wrapper was nice and soft and it went great with the chocolate sauce.

To top it all off, the eat all you can comes with bottomless ice tea as well.All in all, I did enjoy it somehow.
