“Great food, a real taste of the Carribean.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Eaten there a few times, and rarely been anything less than impressed.

The food is seasoned perfectly - spicy, but not overbearingly so, and with a real depth of flavour that is the hallmark of the best spicy food.

The menu is not huge, and eat there a few times and you would have tried most things....but that said, it lets them focus on doing the food they do, to a high standard.

I reccomend the jerk chicken or lamb ribs to start, followed by goat curry with rice and peas, and fried plantains on the side. Oh, and bottle after bottle of ice cold red stripe to wash it down!

“Staff great - portions huge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We ate here for the first time this week. It was a Friday night and there lots of free tables. The staff were very friendly and helpful in recommending different dishes. The lamb ribs to start were very tasty with lots of meat but Luke warm. Lovely fresh salad. The goat curry was a beautiful flavour with quite an unexpected after- kick. Loads of bones but would recommend.. Rice and beans good. A good variety of side dishes. Beautiful cheesecake. Very good value evening out. I noticed an unpleasant smell - drains near the back of the restaurant.

“Ok nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had food here and was sadly disappointed,we looked at another place to eat but my husband liked the reviews on this place better!! Food wasn't as nice as it looked, it was very hot but no real taste, service was ok lady behind the bar more interested in her phone, when we wanted more drinks we had to try and get her attention.We sat near the stairs what a mistake!! There was a strong smell of overpowering toilet air freshener, which by the end of the night we'd both had enough of. Sadly I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back. When we going to settle our bill we were told that we had to go to the cashpoint as the card reader wasn't working, no mention of this when arrived!!!

“Great tasty food and reasonably priced :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We found Mr G's via Trip advisor, and chose to give it a try.
We were glad that we did, the food and service was great!!

It made a really great change from the usual/standard restaurants like Chinese/Indian.

I did even notice several people come in to collect take out.
