You have to go here, the food is absolutely amazing

The lamb curry is absolutely immense and the atmosphere is great. The owners are so friendly - I also recommend the jamican rum and gin

Great, authentic jerk chicken homemade by John. You'll get a warm welcome and real West Indian food. Worth a visit. You can also catch John's food at the Optimist in Uplands. We'll be back!

Banging Jerk chicken, friendly staff, cosy place that's a bit too easy too miss if you walk past.
The rice is a bit too plain though, either needs more coconut milk or something else, I assumed it would be like Caribbean "Cook Up" rice, but it wasn't really, just some boiled rice with peas.
Still happy to try the other dishes!

What a great place hidden in Swansea city center. Food is just absolutely delicious- hard to find any better meal anywhere in town. Simple menu with tasty options, cooked with love. Have a rum and ginger beer or red stripe while waiting! Portions are generous and prices more than fair.

Awesome food. Cheap as hell and super friendly. Various dishes including vegetarian. A taste of the Caribbean in Swansea.
