    5 star review  This food is FANTASTIC! Spotted the restaurant on a drive home from work and was pulled in � The owner was super friendly and explained things on the menu that were curious of! We even were offered samples! The aroma of the delicious food quickly filled the car and I couldn’t wait to eat it! Finally just got home and THIS IS TO DIE FOR! We got the curry chicken, jerk chicken, Mac and cheese, collard greens, plantains and co co bread!!

    5 star review  The food is absolutely AMAZING! We tried the jerk chicken, plaintains, callaloo, rice and peas, oxtails with butter beans, and the beef patty! They were all fabulous and tasty! Will be going back again!

    positive review  So today I tried the coconut shrimp and of course I ordered the oxtails. When I tell you I left feeling satisfied and had some to take home for later. This is my new comfort food spot. I think I will try the snapper the next time I go.
