I give this place a 5 based on the authenticity alone. I'm glad the jerk chicken wasn't available tonight (I went close to closing time) because that was my obvious choice. I was forced to try something new and I ordered the brown stew chicken. It was delicious. Ted also gave me some pork to try. The serving size was... More

We arrived just before closing and we were so happy that we made it. Only option was the curry chicken because it literally closed in 5 minutes, but it was amazing. Great hot sauce. Huge portion. I would recommend this place. Staff was the most helpful and super pleasant!

Come in and Tell Ted it is your first time and get ready for a sampler plate like no other. His entire menu is delicious and filling. Ted always has something to talk about and treats his customers quite well. Check this place out TBAY!

I can't believe there is only 24 reviews for this place. Ted is an amazingly friendly guy who poors his heart and soul into his cooking. If you haven't been here come in and let him know it's your first time. Get ready to be pleasantly full and enjoy the commentary of a no nonsense business owner that cares about... More

Great food! Very good flavours and vibe. Huge portions! The jerk is not the type full of thyme & scallion aromas, but it is delicious. Ted is a super guy. Love this place!

We decided to try after hearing good things. Ted is a cool cat. Super friendly and passionate. He gave us a generous sample of Curry chicken, Brown Stew Chicken, Jerk Chicken and Honey Garlic ribs. I was stunned (still dwelling) by the depth of flavours, tenderness and overall quality. I can't pick a favourite at this point, everything was equally... More

I recently just went to Ted's kitchen and it was so delicious. As I had never tried it before, the man who took my order was more than happy to explain and ultimately pick something new to try. It was Awesome

I was recently in Thunder Bay on business and checked Trip Advisor to find a place to eat. I found Ted's and decided to have some jerk food. The restaurant is small, clean and tidy, nothing fancy. Ted is very friendly and great to deal with. I had the large order that included both jerk pork and chicken along with... More
