“Fun place, good vibe, food good but don't go for this alone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Had dinner with some friends - we sat outside on a lovely evening and the place was buzzing, had a good atmosphere and staff were friendly. The food itself is not the greatest jamaican I have had but was all cooked OK and tasty. We shared 4 appetisers and 2 entrees - the calimari salad was really fresh and not at all rubbery and was the stand out dish for me - it was a special that evening. All in all an enjoyable time and a fun place.

“Different and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

My daughter took me to this buzzing Caribbean restaurant two nights ago and I cannot wait to return.
what I really liked was that the food was so delicious and the casual atmosphere with such delicious food was a different pace compared to fine dining, whilst the food was still exquisite.
I had the jerk chicken, prepared to perfection, juicy and delicious, my daughter had shrimp which she loved.
appetizers were amazing, the best corn on the cob I have ever had, rolled in Caribbean spices with coconut, also had miniature tacos for appetizers.
definitely great for a casual evening, it was full, so I would suggest reservations,although noisey because it is buzzing, really worth going to when in New York. great service, all the waitresses were tall and beautiful, looked like models.
I might add that ai really thought it was inexpensive for such good food, also a fun area to walk around at night.

“cozy jam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

i like the setting of the actual restaurant,there is a juice bar which has a seperate entrance with a soveneir store attatched then u have the restaurant which looks like a basement jammin reggae tunes. I don't like that the seating is too close and they rush you (1hour limit) when they have reservations coming in.

“Vegetable Roti as good as it gets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I've only had Roti a few times but I always get shrimp or conch when I do. I was dying to have some Roti so I figured veggies were better than nothing. it was much better than I thought it would be.
