“Great food, HORRIBLE bathroom”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Wonderful food. Truly an experience EVERY visitor should have! The prawn fried rice was soooo yummy and the sweets shop downstairs was amazing! I am taking points off because their bathroom was under construction and a piece of concrete almost fell right on my mom's head! The kicker is when we said something about it, the waitress didn't even apologize or act like it was a big deal! Also, watch your purse, go with a group and DO NOT wear jewelry! My cousin had her watch stolen on THEIR STAIRWELL!

“terrible owner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

the food is no doubt tasty, but what is wrong is the treatment of staff and the owner wife buy the owner. when i was there the owner had an argument with his wife of which he violently cursed and pelt her down, some of the customers started to complain and pleaded with him to stop, it was not a nice experience and it contiguously happens

“best curry Guyana style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Mutton curry and Roti is a must eat here. They have sweet meat and lots of Guyanese dishes to choose from. Another must visit if you are looking to taste authantic guyanese food in Georgetown Guyana.

“Good food, unapreciated staff and misleading services,”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2010

To find this restaurant you need to know where it is, if not you probably would have to ask someone, the atmosphere is bad when you're inside mostly due to the noise outside (people yelling and cursing, loud music coming from buses that are parked outside), the only good side to this place is the food; one of the best tasting fried rice and BBQ chicken around. customer service is poor, if you don't give a tip you get cold responses, and bad services, my wife payed for lunch and when the waiter brought back the change she told him to keep it but because it was only $40 he declined by rudely saying "don't worry about it", while this was happening i was taking out $1000 to give him but after his comment i declined to tip him. His level of professionalism should not been based on the amount of tip,. please avoid using the restroom at all cost, go prior to coming here or hold it in if you can, its very unsanitary, Sadly I would return here only because of the food nothing else.
