This is a quaint little restaurant. We have walked by it many times and it's always busy. Tried to go once but there was a very long wait. There's only about 15 tables of seating. So we made a reservation the next time and got the table by the bar inside. It's run by a family and they are very... More

Nice little place in Delray. Recommend reservations because it is a little place. This is not a fancy place - quite casual, but teh food is outstanding. I had the Oxtail, my wife had teh jerk grouper, and our friends had pompano. All was amazingly great - heck even the rice was special good. The bar is very limited was... More

From the outside looks like a little shack, would never know what to expect. By the way you need to find street parking, no parking lot. There were only a few tables inside (and since it was raining out, I'm glad I called in to make a reservation). When we came in we were given a menu and the girl... More

Awesome but small...make sure you make a reservation. Curried lamb was delicious, Oxtail very flavorful, steamed fish lacked seasoning. Will be back...hopefully when it's cooler we will sit outside!

After reading so many great reviews and living in Delray I decided to try it. The reviews were correct. The food was out of this world and service was excellent and friendly. The place is tiny and reservation is strongly recommanded during the week end. I've eaten to many places on Atlantic Ave but that small family place beats them... More

If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place for you. If you enjoy a delicious meal with folksy style, you are at the right place. We had 7:30 reservations, and were seated at our reserved table. It is a family run restaurant; our waitress was the owners daughter, his wife the cook. Seemed as though the... More

Entree selections of Oxtails , MacNCheese, each made our trip worth while. An amazing dinner salad put the visit over the top. We will return for more items including Roti, Dal, and Guava Cheesecake.

Wow. Look, I am not experienced with Caribbean food –but I know food. The food here is pretty incredible. Not to mention the value for money! A good friend and I caught up and selected this place (my 2nd choice) based on other review within easy walking distance in Delray Beach. The restaurant is pretty small and the first thing... More

Don't blink bc you may very well miss this gem of a restaurant! Everything about Bamboo Fire is authentic and therefore delicious, but if I had to suggest my top 3 dishes: 1. Eggplant Appetizer 2. Curry Chicken ( get roti bread for dipping too) 3. Curry Goat Enjoy!

This tiny family run restaurant is one of Delray Beach's best kept secrets. It is kind of off the beaten path, and if you didn't know better you might think its outdoor tables belong to the establishment next door! Service is slow because every meal is cooked to order, so be patient, enjoy another beer or glass of wine and... More
