“Fantastic vegan options!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We love the vegan options here. If it were all vegan we would have given it five stars. All the vegan dishes are fantastic! Try the curried tempeh..... the steamed cabbage ......anything with jerk sauce is very very hot.

“Great food, service was OK.”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Been here before and the food was good as always. The jerk sauce is very distinctive and spicy. The service was a bit mediocre, the server didn't give it the extra effort that she should have. Would still go back.

“Yum-O, Jamaican Chicken - but it's SPICY!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

OK, the food here is OUTSTANDING! The spicy jerk chicken is SPICY but really, really good. Falls apart, makes you sweat and cry but you just can't stop eating it.

The other food is good too but the jerk chicken is really outstanding.

Not so good if you are trying for romantic - ambiance is very cafeteria like but I'll sacrifice ambiance any day for good food :-).

Oh, but our waiter was FABULOUS. Working student who took time to chat and tell us about himself when things had died down a bit.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Whenever I crave ox tail stew or curry goat, I come here. The food is delicious and full of flavor, but be careful, some of the dishes are spicy! I love bringing friends from out of town here. Friendly service.
