“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

Everything I ate here was delicious: curry goat, ackee and salt fish, stew peas soup, stew peas with pig tail, bread pudding, fried chicken & stewed oxtails. My favorite was the stew peas soup, which is not served everyday. Definitely the place to visit for a consistently good authentic Jamaican meal!

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Atmosphere like in a lunch restaurant - would have been much better with less light and some candles. Sweet & Sour chicken good, but curry chicken little tasteless. When we gave the feed back, supervisor came to us and was sorry. We got a dessert cheese cake for free, nice! Would recommend.

“Nice Local Place, Where Locals Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

This is one of the local restaurants on the hip strip.

You will see some of the drivers, tour guides, and people of the city here. It is not fancy but it is kind of a Jamaican Denny's. Still the food is good.

The menu has fish, goat, pork, chicken, lobster and more. There are specials every night. I had a mixed plate to sample as many of the Jamaican style food as I could. The price is decent for the hip strip.

The servers were very kind.
