About Us

It all started when Mr. Say Lip Hai arrived in Singapore from Hainan island and started as a cookboy with the British troops in Sembawang. There he learned how to prepare the perfect roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.

Having tasted one of Mr Say’s now famous meals, a British housewife suggested that he start a catering business with her husband, Jack Hunt, in his pub at Killiney Road known as Jack’s Place, which he started in 1966. Mr Say agreed and commenced that partnership in 1968. Shortly afterwards, Jack Hunt sold his share of the business but his namesake ‘Jack the Chef’ is still running the kitchen today!

Today, Jack’s Place is the trusted favourite for family and friends to enjoy great value sizzling steaks, specialty meals, and sumptuous cakes. Jack’s Place is committed to serving quality food and creating memorable dining experiences in a cheerful and cozy environment for our guests.
