Vietnamese style fresh, rice wrapper spring rolls with rice noodles, bean sprouts, basil, thin sliced shrimp and lettuce. It also comes with a Peanut sauce which is akin to a not too savory oil mixed with chopped up peanuts. Delicious, light and fresh (lettuce is not wilted and bean sprouts are not brown) about 90-95% of the time.
We are very fond of the consistent freshness of the Sushi at Jacky’s. We have tried the California Roll, the Tuna Roll, Spicy Tuna, Spicy Shrimp, Spider Crab, Tempura Shrimp, Tuna and Salmon Nigiri, along with Eel and others I cannot remember at the moment. The sushi is consistently fresh and delicious. The only reason I could not give 5 stars is because sometimes the sushi chef assembles some of the larger rolls (like the Spider crab and tempura shrimp) or the Nigiri (like the Tuna and Salmon ones) in such a way that doesnt allow for clean bites and you may end up with the rice ball or components of the roll falling apart. A small complaint and still the best Sushi anywhere in the North RI region.
From the standard chinese restaurant fare of pan fried Peking Ravioli (delicious, crispy skin) and Crab Rangoons (subtle, savory sweet cream cheese filling) to not so standard fare like the Lot (Cambodian style crisp fried tiny spring rolls with pork, peanuts and taro roots) and the Butterfly shrimp (a bit too thick crusted butterflied shrimp served with duck sauce), theres very little room for anyone to go wrong ordering an appetizer here.
We have tried the House(chicken, pork and shrimp) Lo Mein, House fried rice, and General Tao’s chicken. The House Lo Mein and Rice are excellent the majority of the time with generous helpings of well cooked rice and noodles and loaded with bits of chicken, pork and shrimp. Very tasty and consistently good.
I would give the General Taos three stars if I could. Ive definitely had better. Its a bit too thick on the chicken corn starch crust and flavor wise its just ok. Your standard chinese General sauce of garlic, ginger and soy sauce flavors enhanced with red pepper. All in all, not bad, just a bit mediocre and wont knock anyones socks off.
I do not recommend the Pad Thai at Jacky’s currently. The couple of times I have ordered it, it has been quite bland, with relatively soggy noodles and simply not worthy of a choice over other much better items in the menu.
This is an excellent take on the traditional Vietnamese of Rice noodles call Pho (pronounced FUH). You have your choice of beef, pork (I chose this), chicken, veggie, shrimp or a combination of all the above (House version).
Then rice noodles and a very delicous vietnamese style soup broth are added. The broth is a savory and subliminally sweet chicken based broth, I believe, with strong hits of cilantro and lime that knock your taste buds for a delicious loop.
Honestly, I cannot recommend this type of soup from Jacky’s enough. If you’re in the mood for soup and are are open to a new spectrum of soup flavors , this is IT!

From the appetizers to desserts, we’ve never been disappointed at Jacky’s Galaxie. The food has always been fresh, served with a very nice presentation and is equally delicious. The service has always been good; the people are very polite. The only down side is I have to travel approximately 60 miles round trip, but it’s so worth it! Jacky’s is my #1 in Asian food.
I don’t even want to talk when dining at Jacky’s; I enjoy the food so much.

Every time i came here the food has been excellent. However this last time i went in the service was very poor… we ordered a scorpion bowl and because i had no id… the hostess came to my table and placed her hands on my drink and removed my straw. this accident could have been handled in a different manner, but because of this i will no longer go there to eat, nor do i recommend it to anyone.

There are a lot (Four or five) of this restaurant chain- but all in RI! Southern MA could use a dose of Jacky’s!
Not just chinesse, but also Thai, Vietnamese and Japanesse!
Fresh veggies, cooked to the edge of still crisp. Fresh sushi. Sticky American favs like sweet-n-sours and lesser known like lettuce cups and tasty soups!
Also, they aren’t shy with the volcano bowl drinks!
Not on the menu, ask for them specifically. Just to give you an idea how good- I hate green beans usually!
