My husband and I were in Gainesville this past weekend for a football game and he wanted to try something just a little different than a chain restaurant. I was of course hesitant because I am kind of a picky eater. He looked the restaurant up on Trip Advisor and read the reviews and we decided to give it a try. I must tell you that it was the bomb! We had a 10-15 minute wait but it was well worth it.
We ordered some jerked chicken wings and the waitress warned us ahead of time that they were really hot but we wanted to try them anyway. She was not lying, they were hot as you know what, but very good.
My husband tried the oxtails which is a favorite on their menu and I tried the curry chicken. Both meals were off the chain! You had plenty of food, beans and rice and sauteed cabbage. Very flavorful and not too spicey. My husband said he could have had more of the oxtails they were so good. It did not take long for the food to come out which was a surprise to us because some of the reviews had indicated that it takes awhile for the food to come out but not this time.
The service was excellent and the wait staff was very friendly. By the time we finished our dinner, there was a line of people out the door and several people waiting to get their "to go" plates.
If you are in Gainesville for any reason, you have got to try this place. I'm glad I allowed my husband to make the choice because I was not disappointed!
