Small little spot, but had very good Jamaican food. Jerk chicken, boneless or bone in, curried goat, special included rice and peas, plus a small salad. Friendly staff, made you feel welcome

I’ve been a few times but never wrote a review so I decided that it’s time. We went for a quick bite last night and both ordered the Chicken Roti. The owner makes all of the dishes onsite from scratch, nothing is ever frozen. The curry dishes are very flavorful but not excessively spicy. If you need it hotter, just ask and they will comply! The roti alone is so filling but you can also order it as a combo, coming with peas and rice, plantain and salad. This is the most authentic Caribbean food you will find in Ottawa. You will not be disappointed.

Not much atmosphere in this hole-in-the-wall but the food compensates for that. At least the curried chicken roti does, Roti thin but stuffed with delicious curried chicken, spiced as you like. Reasonably priced. Fast, friendly service.

Great service, tasty foods, highly recommend the roties and platters. One of the best Caribbean places in the NCR, prices are good.

I had the chicken curry roti platter. It was a whole lot of tasty food for a great price! The chicken was tender and tasty. As far as sides go, the plantains were especially delicious! I'll be getting extra of those next time for sure!
