Love their garlic shrimp!!

Very convienant place next to my nail salon, I can just grab a bite to eat before or after my appt. the jerk chicken is tasty, not too spicy & I love their garlic shrimp. Each plate comes with plantains and cabbage. Very friendly staff and they have seating with tv for entertainment.

They appreciate your business and any suggestion is more than... More

The food is not worth eating, I am very disappointed. I was a faithfull patron at this restaurant. However the original owner sold the business to include her name. Who ever bought this buisness cannot cook, it is terrible. Unless you've tasted the real Ava....only then you will know the difference. New Owner you need to step it up or... More

Going on my 3rd visit in 2 months. Their food is amazing. You don't get much interaction from the employees, so it's a bit uncomfortable wanting to ask questions; especially if you dont know much about their food. Anyhoo, I tried the jerk chicken and gumbo because that's what I do know. I'm not into goat and oxtails so pass... More

I absolutely Love this restaurant. The food was amazing. The food was authentic and cooked properly. The Food was Inexpensive too. They sell great Jamaican food...you won't be disappointed. Service was on point. If you are looking for great food, nice Caribbean atmosphere then go there!

They should be specific which island food they sell...waste of time.... just put up Jamaican flag. Not really "caribbean" food. Please rename to Jamaican and Haitian food.

The food here was amazing, but I don't think this hole-in-the-wall restaurant was prepared for a large party. Definitely order out from this place, but you won't regret it--every item on the menu was great and filling.

This restaurant was not what I was hoping for. Its very small bright room with 6-7 tables in a strip mall with walkup counter service. Which is not necessarilly a bad thing but has a very fast food, hole in the wall feel. The employee was friendly and even gave us a sample when we were inquiring about the menu... More

The food is great. The goat soup is a must and their Gumbo is so great.The jerk chicken taste as if I was back in Jamacia. The $5.00 Fridays are great. Very friendly staff each time I have visited. Ava is #1 in my boo

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was great. We had the curry chicken and goat. The pepper sauce was great. Atmosphere was nice and they have a television on for those who like to watch it. I saw they also have a new restaurant on Ft. Hood Street...I plan to take a peek at it also.... More
