Yummy!

Fast courteous service and a great lunch, our first time there today. We will be back! The service was good, the food excellent and the value fine. My wife and I shared the combination platter and a dinner salad. Our daughter had the Brown Chicken. Yes, it was spicy, but not so much that a neophyte... read more

Not sure why this place is even in business. Worst dive location ever, physical plant was permeated by an acrid smell, must be coming from the kitchen. Food was aweful, terrible, foul, and full of the most annoying bits and chunks of bone and offal. Have eaten authentic carribean, this is just waste people are paying for. We finished nothing...

My wife and I went here on a whim. We were NOT disappointed. We wanted to try everything on the menu. She had steamed salmon with tomato and sweet pepper sauce, I had half orders of jerk chicken salad and curried tofu. We also ordered appetizers of plantains and "festivals" ... big mistake! The portions were so generous, and the... More

I must give this restaurant a poor rating. Not because the food isn't good. Really, the food is better than average! But I must give it a poor rating because food is not all that a restaurant is. A restaurant is more than food, it is also an experience. And this restaurant is so HORRIBLY bad at providing an experience,... More

What a treat to find an authentic Jamaican restaurant in Chico! The food is wonderful, including the vegetarian dishes, which do NOT come across as token additions . . . possibly because the chef himself is vegetarian. We just love this place!

I had the jerk chicken and my dining companion had the the curried goat. Both were excellent. The staff was friendly and the service excellent. The owner/chef is the real deal, a Jamaican who know how to cook.
