Service was poor, later we found loads of hair in our takeout order. The owners did not greet us as we were greeted in every other place where we visited.

We love the food, the cute place and all the decorations! It is a great place to go if you want good local jamaican food! The only problem was that the food where cooked in «jamaican time». But we really recommend the restaurant!

We were disappointed in the quality of the Jamaican dishes. The atmosphere is not very inviting either place is clean but dark. Too much rice served with everything !!! Food was bland...definitely not how Jamaican or Caribbean food is supposed to be.

The curried conch was extremely chewy and unfortunately the curry wasnt great in flavor either. Rice and peas was well cooked.

Homey, authentic environment with friendly staff and good service. Good food. Reasonable pricing. Staff was patient in making recommendations and explaining things I may not have been familiar with.

Food is excellent, second time in Jamaica and went there again. You will not be disappointed by anything’s on their menu but my favorite is ox tail. Be prepared to wait if the place has more than a couple of people (and it always does)...More

Honestly, depends on your taxi driver. I think we paid $10 or $15 for round trip. You could walk, but I wouldn't do it at night or alone.
