We get together with a bunch of family and friends over August bank holiday every year and this year, rather than barbecue, we thought we'd give Jerk Station a go at providing us a hot buffet. I've had food before from the stall in Chelmsford...More

I was born in the Caribbean and was bought up on Caribbean food. The food I had was in no way and should not be associated with Caribbean food. I ordered Oxtail and butter beans with rice and peas. I received white rice with what...More

Stopped by while strolling down the high street and sampled the curry goat, the beans curry, plantain and the rice and peas. It was all real good food, high quality, and very tasty.

If you fancy some food with a difference the make your way to this Kiosk. Their food is extremely tasty & quite different to what you are usually used to & can be bought for a very reasonable price.

If you like really spicy & tasty food then visit the Jerk Station in the High Street. Just follow your nose & you will begin to discern the great aromour which eminates from their stall. A great eating experience at a very reasonable price.

Came here for lunch as I was walking past today. I noticed the amazing cooking smells. I had goat curry and plantain. The food was so tasty, noticeable flavours and very aromatic. Staff were friendly and sunny on a sunny day.

Met the most friendly people at this street food stall. I had never tasted Jerk Chicken before but it is delicious. I also got to try plantains, goat curry and rice. Everything looked spotless, smelt lovely and tasted great. Would totally recommend this food.

Thank you for your kind comments. One of our core aims is to introduce African and Caribbean food to 'newbies'. Glad you have discovered something new.
