“Looks aren't everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This tiny purple building sitting on a busy street that never seems to have any cars around appeared to be some place even the locals avoid but we were wrong. A conversation with a local patron piqued our interest as he said it was his favorite place on the island to eat. We decided to take a chance and found a real gem.

The food was incredible. Everything on the menu is based off of: chicken, beef, pork or seafood. It is served in several variations: with or without veggies, curried, as a fried rice or as a wrap. Some items even offer different sauces. Four of our party tried something different from one another. Two kids picked the same beef and pepper dinner (and one of them is an extremely picky eater!). Everyone one of us went home full and satisfied.

Our choices that day: curried grouper, pork and vegetables with BBQ sauce with white rice, same thing but as a wrap and with a salad, curried chicken with vegetables made spicy with white rice, two orders of pepper steak with vegetables over white rice.

I'd give the place five stars if it were a little nicer looking.

“Local Food churned out quick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great homemade bread. Otherwise standard rice, noodle, meat selections. They do not taste fresh made daily, but a home recipe with a reheat taste. The menu looks huge but it is essentially the same thing listed several times with each meat option. Decent but not great.

“Delivery Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We knew we wanted to eat here based on the reviews, but we decided to try the free delivery instead. Lemon Garlic Snapper was outstanding as was the Pepper Steak.

“Great little hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The restaurant appears just so so from the outside but has great food and better service. The menu is HUGE for such a small place and though it is very small it is always full.
