Went here with my son and his roommate from UF. The service and our server were great and the food was excellent!

Have lived in and traveled throughout the Caribbean and I love Jamaican Curries and Jerk and this place has excellent dishes of both. I had a curry and my son had the Jerk Chicken. Would happily order either again but next time I'll have to try the either the Oxtail or Curried Goat!

They also have a completely Vegan menu if you are so inclined.

Very fresh and tasty food. Nice variety of choices on the menu. Tried the oxtail which was excellent, served with rice and peas (red beans) fried plantains and sautéed cabbage which was seasoned to perfection. The jerk chicken was really spicy (not for faint hearted) but was very, very good. The jerk chicken was really spicy (not for faint hearted) but was very, very good.
The desserts are delicious. We tried the coconut cake and the dulce de leche festivals with ice cream. Good atmosphere, music, and great friendly service

Like everyone else has mentioned, the food takes a while to cook but the waitresses were very attentive. It is kept quite clean which always makes me feel better. I can't complain about the food, although it is pricier than I would have expected. The portions are a decent size.
