First visit for us, but certainly won't be the last. Fantastic shrimp curry with such wonderful flavours and interesting side dishes (chana dal, pumpkin, banana chutney). Fab Rum Sours, nice and strong. Proper caribbean food.

Hello, our curries vary in price from lunch to dinner so on average they can run $30 bbds. We do not have a separate children's menu but we make meals specially for children.
