interesting idea, perhapts stick to the cajun sauces

Interesting concept, cajun shrimp that you can have over pasta where you select your own sauce. Unfortunately the actual shrimp was overdone with cornmeal breading and the yellow curry sauce not very good but I'd still give it another try just for the novelty of the concept. my husband had a... read more

First and only visit though we should have received a second chance... Parking was great, we got there right when the restaurant opened (the best part). The initial service was good, and the restaurant seemed very presentable. However, on a very warm day, the restaurant was warm and so was the salad, beer and entree. While in the bathroom, the...

We discovered this small locally owned restaurant when it opened in the mid-90s and have not been able to give up our "habit" yet. Over the years they have greatly expanded their menu to augment their original shrimp with "Cajun" sauce to include Thai, Curry, New Mexican and more, and other fish, seafood and meat, to please anyone's tastes. They... More

I went to lunch to this place with a friend and we were disappointed with the portions of meat served with each of our meals. I had the cajun chicken over angel hair pasta and my friend had the jambalaya. The amount of chicken pieces in the cajun chicken with angle hair pasta was embarrassing small and my friend's jambalaya... More

We hadn't been here for a long time but decided to try it for lunch. We noticed that everything had been redecorated. There were two young servers and the place wasn't crowded but it took a long time to get our drink orders. Once the 2nd waiter took our order he was back in 5 minutes to take it again.... More

Outstanding Cajun, Creole, and Caribbean sauces highlight well-cooked entrees in generous portions. Also try the Cajun cheese fries appetizer - you might just want to make that your entire meal.

I don't recommend, eat anywhere else but here. Fake cajun.. If you've been to NOLA, you'll prefer Popeyes... Much closer to the mark. the seasoning and flavor is all off, way over priced, and the staff is incompetent. How is this place even open? It was dead on a Friday at 1245. This was by far the worst meal ever... More

Have not been to this restaurant since it was at its old location on a side street north of central. After tonight's meal I will not be back again. My husband and I had a rare bit of alone time later in the evening and rather than fight the crowds decided to give it a try. The hostess was pleasant... More

Went here for a family gathering and was curious to try it. It started fairly well enough with a friendly server to seat us and take drinks. The first hiccup came through in taking at least 15 minutes for just waters to come. Thought it would pass and then it took forever for her to come back and take our... More
