Best For Take Out

Small joint across from the Children's Museum. Not enough selections if you are a big Jamaican food fan. The oxtail was full of flavor...better than expected. The curry chicken was just okay. They were out of beef patties. The coco bread was out of a bag... not fresh baked.

The neighborhood is a little rough but the food was good and the people were nice. I do not like experimenting with food so I got the pita and it was great. Bursting with flavor. Not somewhere to take a date but a good quick lunch place. I'd go back again

I picked up my food after leaving a day party at broadberry, and it was one of the worst decisions of my life. Everything was dry, and the plantains had no taste. If you're looking for authentic caribbean food, please try else where, because this place makes caribbean food look really bad.

The inside reminded me of Jamaica, because it was not much to look at but the food was great. I had the goat curry which was very tasty. The cabbage and plantains were good as well. It was a little pricey, but they did have specials at a reasonable price.

My meal was very tasty and I was given a generous portion. I love the coconut cake. Definitely a take-out place rather than dine-in.

First, let me start of by saying thank God i had a goupon. If i didn't i would be MAD to waist my hard earned money. I can understand they don't have a sitting/eating area except two tables and some bar stools. But the ones they have could hav been wiped down. On to the next thing the older man... More

Enjoyed everything I had no their menu. Don't visit the place as often as it deserves because of the location, but wonderful food, great price point.

One of the worst meals that I have ever paid for. I almost feel bad because the service was pretty good, but the food was just awful.
