“Great food, not much of an ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We ate here looking for Bajan food (Brown Sugar was closed). The food was great (fried chicken and jerk chicken), cheap and easy. Good option for Bajan in Christ Church/St. Lawrence Gap area

“Yummy Bajan Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

My friend and I went to Sweet Potatoes for her birthday dinner and the staff was so nice and friendly. They served us even though the kitchen was closing when we arrived and they gave my friend a birthday drink on the house. I highly recommend the rice and peas and seasonal vegetables. It was such a tasty meal. My friend ordered the jerk chicken and said it was delicious. If we are ever back in Barbados, this will be one of our first stops for great Bajan food.

We visited off season so most places were quiet. We had a brilliant lunch here thanks. Friendly service and good value. Try the flying fish cutter!
