“Best Jamician food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Tucked away in a shopping plaza is a tasty menu of Oxtails and curried goat done to perfection! The tender, moist Oxtails were a treat because the Jamaican places back home rarely serve them. Curried goat wasn't dried out (like a few Indian places do!) and practically fell off the bone. It was so good! The jerk chicken was flavorful, not hot. Ginger beer, meat and chicken patties are also available.

Go early ~ the oxtails and goat sell out quickly!

“authentic jamaican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This was the first place I stopped in town. Very small spot near Bethune Cookman College. You definitely get your moneys worth. But, they don't take american express. LOL.

“Go out of your way for this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Apparently this restaurant has been there since 1993, although I had never noticed them before.

I wanted to introduce my kids to Jamaican tastes so I picked up several dinners and was pleased with all, we had the ox tail, curry goat, jerk chicken and garlic shrimp. The curry goat was my favorite, but the real hit for the rest of the family was the jerk chicken.

The have a small restaurant area (2 or 3 tables), but this is primarily a take-out restaurant.

Take the time to find this place, well worth it.
