    Good variety, prices aren’t bad, but the food can be hit or miss. When it’s good, it’s GOOD.

    When this place first opened the food was great. I speak for the CBS location. Now it sucks…most of the grub is simply microwaved pre-cooked stuff…if you go to wing night at 7pm you can rest assured your wings were cooked at 2pm…

    Place went downhill fast…as seaward said it’s hit or miss now…

    Hit or miss.George St. locale is a bit lackluster, particularly in the wee hours on weekends,great service though in my experience. The best Jungle Jims is the one in Bay Roberts.It’s always been wicked and it’s been 15 years now! The food is actually hot and not lukewarm like at all of the other locationss.

    WTF? Says:

    Went to the Jim’s on George with about 8 others for a birthday party. Our waitress was sweet, but I was unimpressed by the meal and the price…. We waited for well over an hour for our food, when our chipper waitress came back to explain why it was taking so long:

    “I’m so sorry about your wait! Our Microwave is broken so it’ll take a little bit longer than usual!”

    Me “Microwave??”

    “Yeah, most of our stuff is microwaved…”

    I think that wouldn’t even bother me so much if I wasn’t paying as much as I did for it….way to expensive for something that you could easily nuke or deep fry at home.

    But on the upside, the waitress was very nice, and friendly in spite of such a hectic night on the job :/

    Kraft Catalina salad dressing is NOT a stir-fry sauce. Come off it b’y.

    I just spent two weeks traveling from one end of NF to the other. The worst meal the whole way, hands down, was Jungle Jim’s in CBS. Motley.

    Horrible experiences the last few times! Had to wait 45 minutes to get a seat, okay thats fine, than waited 20 minutes for a menu. No one came back for 20 minutes to take our order than we waited another 45 minutes for our food! My order was wrong completely, and my boyfriends steak was still breathing when he asked for it well done. I dont say Ill be back!

    Went to Torbay Rd. location last night. Was last there over a year ago and was looking forward to dining out with a friend. Sadly, it was one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve had in SJ probably ever. Where to begin… from our glasses of water which tasted “off” (old ice? soap? …still not sure), to shrimp so overcooked it was tough and dried-out(microwaved?), to bacon-wrapped scallops almost frozen on the inside and charred on the outside, to a piece of cod literally sitting in a pool of grease, to my friend’s soup which was so noticeably hot it was obviously microwaved within an inch of it’s life.
    Terrible food, barely adequate service (our server seemed more interested in chatting with a table of guests seemingly her own age, than being remotely attentive to her customers).
    SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! Not worth the visit, I’ll never go back.

    I went to the Torbay location today and it was a little busy, but not too bad. However, my boyfriend and I stood at the entrance and waited for about 20 minutes to be seated before leaving. From what I could see there were about 5 or 6 tables open– granted, these could have been reserved, but we didn’t really know as none of the servers seemed interested in talking to us. My boyfriend tried to get the attention of the two different waitresses plus the girl at the main counter by saying “Excuse me”, all of them replied with “Yep, just one second” and went about their business. When a couple entered the restaurant after us, and butted in front of us, a waitress explained to them that there would be a bit of a wait and put their names on a list and then left the counter area without acknowledging us at all. After we watched three waitresses, at the same cash register, help take payment from one couple we figured it was time to leave.

    One should not expect good service or food at a Jungle Jims. My expectations of places like this are not much higher than if I went to a fast food joint.

    Jungle Jims is dirt, plain and simple. Do yourself and your health a favor, look up a simple recipe on epicurious or jamieoliver, grab a bottle a wine and spend a night in.

    The fact that places like this even exist shows how lazy and ignorant the masses are in this city.

    is it my imagination or did i just dream it. first i\’m positive the ad that i heard on krock said 25 jungle bucks and 35 if you were a caa member(which i am). did anyone else hear it? did it say anything about having to visit 4 jungle jim\’s in order to get those bucks? i visited 2 and i wasn\’t asked if i wanted those bucks and was told according to the people i talked to when i called i have to visit at least 4 different places in order to receive them. it is a farce and false advertising. what a rip off. i won\’t be going back again.

    Not impressed. The food tastes like it was pre cooked and sat around for a while. The appetizers we had were like rubber to chew.

    Bunny Says:

    I have always found the atmosphere at Jungle Jim’s, especially the one on George Street, to be extremely welcoming. The staff are always gracious and appreciative of my patronage. The food is quite good – it is plentiful, moderately priced, and fast. It’s not a “high class” restaurant certainly, but it’s not pretending to be, either. On George Street, the Manager, Geoff, and waiter, John, are simply awesome!!
