This place is outside of the main streets of the French Quarter, but it’s worth the ride. The oxtails were tender, plantains were cooked to perfection. If you’re looking for authentic Jamaican food...this is your place.

Good Jamaican food with generous portions and quite reasonable prices. I liked it and returned a couple of times when I was there. Seems like a good restaurant serving mainly locals. Didn't see any other tourists when I was there

It was located in a sketchy run down Tulane Avenue, so we were skeptical about this joint. But we were pleasantly surprised.. The food was mind blowing and had so much flavor. This is the first restaurant we ate at NOLA and we had a...More
