We went here for the first time last week. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was unique and could easily be shared with a friend. Don't miss the plantains or the beignets. They don't serve alcohol here but their beverages were tasty and frequently re-filled.

We had dinner as a group of 20 people shine we were having meetings, Food was good, I am Cuban and live in Florida where are a lot of restaurants like this one, I found that Dhat Island does not use a lot of flavor spices (not heat), I guess they are doing this for the Californians since they are...

If you are into different types of food this is a great place to go, I really do not know any other place were they sell it. I like this restaurant when I am bored of the same. It is very clean , nice environment.

Last night of our vacation decided to try this place based on reviews here, we weren't disappointed. However we nearly din't go as finding the parking lot is not trivial, if you are coming from Colton Street it is before the restaurant but with a tiny sign. Inside is fairly small with three or four different small areas. Service was... More

We have driven by this restaurant for..years? ...always saying..we have to try that out1 Finally we did and it is wonderful. The food is really delicious and we can't wait to go back. The beignets are fabulous. I am glad I had read some reviews that mentioned getting a half order... I can't imagine two people eating a full order... More

Food is consistently good, as is the service. They have a number of vegetarian options (but also plenty of meat dishes), but no meal here would be complete without their beignets!! They are so delicious, as good as the ones in New Orleans!! The only thing negative about it is that the location is odd - in the same complex... More

We've been to Dhat Island 3 times and have never had anything but terrific food. Husband always gets the melt-in-your-mouth griyo with red beans and rice. The bourbon chicken is excellent. Mango ice tea is just yummy. Sweet plantains and beignets are delicious. Can't speak for vegetarian dishes. The service is stellar, very friendly staff who give great suggestions. Small... More

We have heard a lot of buzz about the restaurant and had high hopes. The presentation of the food was excellent. The atmosphere was nice. The food was just bland. My experience with Island food is spicy and tasty. Here it was just bland. The manager or owners son came by to discuss our experience. To be honest he was... More

My household accommodates two vegetarians and two carnivores -- a tough mix when deciding where to dine! All four of us found a delicious meal and all of us enthusiastically look forward to our next dining experience. (For other vegetarians, don't pass up the eggplant dish. It's on the spicy side and delicious.) While the appearance from the road is... More

Dhat island is a rare find in the inland Empire - Redlands. Caribbean Island/Jamaican food cooked perfectly with a wonderful array of spices adjusted to your palate temperture taste (mild to hot). Reasonable price, excellent service, frequent live jazz in a small but comfortable dining room. Don't leave without trying the begniets (dough pastries).
