Reviewed June 8, 2013

I haven't had any jerk anything since my Florida days, so I meant to try out this place when it opened last year. Shame on me for waiting since it is outstanding! Yummy generous portions of curry chicken, brown stewed chicken, jerk chicken (all with rice), steamed cabbage (seasoned and cooked just right, soft but not mushy), greens, sweet potato bread pudding (extra wow for that one!). All so good and have to go back to try the rest!

The location is an unassuming storefront on Court Street (IL Highway 17) near the Salvation Army, but do not be fooled. Incredibly friendly service, samples of everything, dedication to making the customer happy, great prices - full dinner for $9-12, lunches even lower. Great for take-out. There is a tremendous effort to revitalize downtown Kankakee, and this little spot fits beautifully into that spirit, representing International cuisine in an area where we have very little.
