Food was ok, if they didnt run out of what you wanted, But the service is horrible. I no longer patronize this establishment and its less than 5 minutes from my house. Im waiting for them to go out of business because people dont want to spend their money and be served by people with attitudes.

WOW, amazing Guyanese cuisine. If you have never had Guyanese cuisine, it’s a must. It is a hybrid of Indian-Jamaican food. The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. I can't recommend this place enough!
